Just go for it !  StD-MacInstall

XP + Vista 32bit

download StD-PCInstall.zip for the original installer files

1. be aware that resizing the gallery is limited, thus you need to manually change screen size.  You may want to download MultiRes to easily change your screen resolution to 800x600 or even better if your computer allows it, 640x480.
2. Set Seizeday.exe compatability (under properties) to run in 256 colours.


for 64 bit Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 or MacOSX - use DOSBOX 

Use DosBox with your own copy of Windows 3. Good instructions for setting up DosBox here.

HOWEVER ...  IF you don't have Windows 3.1 and really need to have Seize the Day, then download

DosBox plus Doswin.zip - which has Seize the Day pre-loaded.

1. Download and install DOSBox

2. Download Doswin.zip from the DosBox - Seize the Day folder.

3. Follow simple instructions included in the doswin folder. (for Win 8 - same as for Win 7)

4. THEN run Dosbox - Windows 3 will load and

Seize the Day will automatically run - ENJOY!

also, in DosBox

Alt + Enter for fullscreen (and back again)

Ctrl + F10 for mouse release from DosBox

after quitting StD - type exit to quit DosBox



Other DosBox Hints for if you have not used the pre-installed version

1. For Mac or PC if you want to use StD under DosBox without fussing with Windows, edit the system.ini file of Windows 3.1 to use the line shell=c:\seize\seizetheday.exe


 2. If you don't want to fuss with DosBox after installing Windows 3.1 - open "dosbox-0.74.conf" (win) with Notepad for PC - At the end of the file under [autoexec] insert the following lines:-

mount c c:\doswin

or for Mac OS X

in Dosbox-0.74. Preferences for MacOSX add the lines :(presuming your 'doswin' folder is placed at top level of your 'home' folder) (and watch out for spaces. eg mountspacecspace

mount c ~/doswin
