    I've found that DOSBox-X is the best way to run Yankee Trader reliably. I have two active games on my Synchronet board that have been in progress for nearly two years now. Two expert players in particular have logged in night after night and haven't been able to crash it.

    My setup is documented here: https://conchaos.synchro.net/yt_info.html

    I have not tested this setup in Mystic, but I see no reason why it wouldn't work, as long as you know how to include the socket handle in the command line.

    Good luck, I'm interested in knowing if it works for you.

    I saw some instructions on setting up on DOSBox with Synchronet but I assumed that was for a linux system. Maybe I should go back and give that a shot.

    Thanks!
