Not a big deal, just curious why. This doesn't happen with any other DOSBOX games that I have.

I'm wondering the same thing!

It happens with Sim City 2000 too.
It could possibly be a missing "exit" in the autoexec script within the game's DOSBox .conf file, or it could be an oddity with certain games not closing correctly within DOSBox. Main thing is that it doesn't stop you from playing though. :)

Nope, doesn't affect my enjoyment of the game, just a tiny bit of annoyance.
Well, it isn't a missing exit. Just checked. Probably it is related to the fact that it launches the intro video program first, then that exits and the game itself is then launched. The fact that the initially launched program was exited might be why this happens.
You just need to add exit at the end of the THEME.bat file in the game dir.

Yes, that worked. I wonder if that also works for Sim City 2000, too? The .bat file must still be seen as running by DOSBox, which is why the EXIT in the DOSBox conf file for the game doesn't kill it off. Back in the old DOS days it wouldn't have mattered as you'd be back in DOS anyway, so this does make sense at least.

Just noticed this! Thanks, this really worked. I +1'd you, but for some idiotic reason I didn't set this as a question so I can't mark it as solved. Oh well, thanks again!
