I couldn’t get Mechwarrior 2 to play in dosbox, because it kept complaining that it couldn’t find its CD. Solution, mount instead an image. Caveat: certain old games used mixed media CDs. You need to make an image that contains both music and data, and then create an cue file. Mount that.
In dosbox, execute something like:
IMGMOUNT d /home/[user]/[folder with images]/image.cue -t iso
Reference for makeing an image and a cue file:
Note: the bin file contains the data, it needs to be present alongside the cue file.
