I′ve successfully installed this game via DosBlaster and DosBox; however, since our monitors in this day of age are far greater than those from 1994, this game appears as a tiny spec on my screen. The game runs just fine except it′s unplayable because I can′t make the game any larger on my screen. I′ve tried dragging the corners and maximizing via the tiny square icon on the top right of the window. There are no in-game options to make this game full screen which was typical from games back them.

An absolute classic.
I was worried that this game may not have aged well and, while the controls will take some getting used to (if you′re used to playing more modern RTSs) this is still worth your download.

The graphics still look fantastic, even after all these years. Bizzard has a really great comic book like art style that I just loved as a kid and still do today.

It′s awesome to play both sides, orcs and Humans. They both play basically the same, but you get to see the story from each race′s point of view.
When most people hear Warcraft, they think of the MMORPG, but I always go back to the original games, the real time strategy games that started it all.

The best part is IT′S FREE HERE. STOP READING COMMENTS AND DOWNLOAD IT YOU SILLYASS.

I′m obviously to stupid to run old games on my computer. Using WIndows 7 32bit and none of the ways showed above worked for me. when typing install.exe (from Kirken′s post) i get "illegal command" error when typing both case (in-) and sensitive.
When trying JLC420′s way with using DOSBlaster, it cannot, by any means detect DOSBox′s installation even after manually poining it in configuration window. It just keeps saying DOSBox not installed (it is installed, though..)
So i ended up with same result as by every other time i wanted to play war1 and war2 on my pc- only dreaming about it, never getting to work. can someone, please provide me with noob-friendly description, how to manage it to work on 32bit Windows7 OS? Thanks in advance.

sgjgh, the 427 MB ISO version works on PC.

1. Download the ISO version (MDF)
2. Mount (open) it with Daemon tools (or whatever you use for disc images)
3. Drag the files from the "CD" (mounted image) to a folder on your computer
4. Install Dosbox http://sourceforge.net/projects/dosbox/
5. Drag and drop the folder from step 3 to the Dosbox icon
6. Type in "install.exe" and run the installer
7. For audio: set the "Select music sound card" to "General midi"
8. Then it′s just dragging and dropping the installation folder to Dosbox and run "war.exe" when you want to play
9. Something
10. Profit!

It would be nice if you told people that the 400MB "ISO" image for "DOS" called warcraft-orcs-humans_dos_04d0.zip is NOT an ISO, it′s actually an MDF format ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Media_Descriptor_File ) of an Apple_HFS image...
It′s WarCraft to run on an Apple computer, not on DOS on a PC.
To unpack it to find this out on Debian Linux I needed to install acetoneiso and download a further plugin it suggested, because mdf2iso couldn′t even read it.
Thanks for wasting a couple of hours of my sleep time.

Love this game!
I start to play this game after watching the movie, love Garona :)
Here is a tutorial video to install WARCRAFT 1, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aeSWOrdBJus

Enjoy :)

whether the game appears tiny and centered or stretched to your screen, depends on your graphics card. I used several different laptops, some stretch smaller games, some keep them in original resolution, centered. Some stretch both height and width, some preserve the ratio. Sometimes it′s easier to change these option, sometimes harder, but it has to be possible one way or another, so keep digging.

hopefully i can save someone from similar frustration that i had with sound.
i had no issue with the music but the SFX sound was sooo broken was painful to listen to. turns out issue was dosbox pushing the CPU to the max (I`m relatively new to dosbox), the dosbox CPU option needs to be set to a fixed number (ex. fixed 2000) instead of on auto(which pushes it to max). using ctrl f11 f12 can work but not as precise, hope this helps

  1. Download
  2. Unzip files
  3. Setup and Install
  4. Launch the game.
  5. Play!
Enjoy..!

    What is the RIP version for DOS and why is it a tenth the size of the ISO?

  4. int_16h says:

    After reading the comments I saw people have a bit of a size problem may I offer you, a resolution, haha bad pun. Okay in windows right click dosbox then properties then compatablity then check the run in 640 x 480 option and it should run just fine

  5. Zoerrvivor says:

    Is it possible to run any version of this game without a DOS emulator? They tend not to work well on my computers for some reason.

  17. HenryBemis says:

    I′m playing this but i wonder if it necesary to press the ctrl buttom everytime i want to create the box that selects my units. I read the manual and it didn′t say anything, is there a problem in my dosbox?

  18. MK--- says:

    make bigger – dos options- full resolution *make it your native resolution ex – 1680×1050 then "output put opengl" go down to aspect and make true. This will give you best results. Start game and push alt enter make full screen. Enjoy!

  19. wurst says:

    you know the only thing you need to do to get any dosbox game is just open the folder and drag the .exe file that is closest the game name on dosbox

    If people are having trouble running the program such as I have had with DosBox, install dosblaster. it takes they annoyance out of DosBox. It only uses DosBox to run the game you don′t need to mount a drive. I just make a folder called dos on the desktop and unzip each game into a separate folder within within it. Once you open DosBlaster, go to file – import game folder select folder **note to open the folder to see is the zip file had already created a folder sometimes it does sometimes it doesn′t. Select the actual folder it self for instance:

    In my Dos folder I created a separate folder call Theme Hospital. When I unzipped Theme hospital It created it′s own folder inside that one. So in order for me to add theme hospital to my list of games In DosBlaster I just had to open the first folder labeled theme hospital and highlight the self create one. Select ok and wait a couple seconds for it to be added to the list Once added double-click then select the correct .exe or .bat file in order to run the game. May need to try a few in the list if more than 1 or 2.

    I see Dosbox not mounting drive no matter how many times I have tried and came across this nice little program, DosBlaster.. It is pretty straight forward. Some games still will not work or require a disc still such as Capitalism. but the ones that I have found to work end up working on both x32 and x64.
    Some games you don′t need to use dosbox or any such program For instance again Theme hospital. Unzip to a folder you choose and just run the .exe (application). it may allow you or may not. before getting annoyed and resort to DosbBox change the compatibility settings and try again. All else fails then you need Dosbox.

    hey this download doesn′t work with the DOSBox or D-Fend Reloaded…I am using a HP with windows 8…I got oregon trail deluxe to work though..

    if anyone has any hints you could email me if you want to help… hawk28_linkinparkisgod@yahoo.com

  22. joey says:

    If you are not able to run the game, try to install "Dosbox" and "Dos shell"
    They are dedicated to run old dos games on the new versions of windows.
    Oh and spread the word to fellow lovers of old games.
