Dungeon Master

This is, of course, the game that started it all.  We will not attempt to tell you about it here.  Go to the Dungeon Master Encyclopaedia fo all the information you could want.


CSBwin (for Windows)


Norton Anti-virus marks the CSBwin executable as being a threat. This is based on the number of people using the file and the file's age. What sense does that make? At any rate, contact me if you have problems. I was able to get Norton to 'Whitelist' one of my programs. Here is what they wrote”

A Playfile.log is included which will allow you to watch a complete Dungeon Master game. Start CSBwin, press 'Dungeon' to advance to the Prison Doors, and then select 'Misc/Playback' from the menu. If you are impatient to watch six hours of play, you can press 'Escape' to pause and watch another day or you can select 'Misc/Quick Play' from the menu to make the movie play faster.

Download the .zip file. Unpack all the files into a single directory and transfer them to a single directory on the Pocket PC.  You should see the following files:

None provided here.  The World Wide Web is full of reviews and information. Again, the Encyclopaedia is your very best source of information and the Dungeon Master Forum is the place to go to exchange information with people who (like me) are a bit crazy over this game.
