Indeed, it's a cycling problem ! I had same problem with almost of my DOS CD games... until I discover D-Fend. You can find it in the "download" area of the DOSBox site (in "tools")... It's a frontend of DOSBox for Windows and configure games with it is easier.
I advise you all to download and test it. DOSBox must be already installed. The new version of D-Fend (compatible with DOSBox 0.65) is beta for now, but it works for me. To have D-Fend in the last version, you must install the previous version (18.104.22.168) and replace "dfend.exe" (in the D-Fend repertory) by the new one (I advise you to backup the old file). You can find the previous version and the new executable file in the download area of the D-Fend site (http://members.home.nl/mabus/
When you run D-Fend the first time, it asks you where is DOSBox... After that, you are in D-Fend. You can create profiles, one for each game.
The better solution is to configure the default settings before create new profiles. So, you can easily create profiles with some clics !
To do that, go to "Configure defaults" in the "Extra" menu.
In the "General" tab, I advise you to check the boxes for "Close DOSBox after game exit", "Start fullscreen", and "Auto lock mouse".
In the "Mounting" tab, you can mount drives. I advise you to mount a repertory for all your games (for example C:\games) as C and the CD-ROM drive as D. To mount a drive, click on "Add..." button, choose if you mount HD or CD-ROM drive, check the box "Enable Input/output control" (if you have Windows XP, 2000 or NT4) and choose the drive letter.
For other tabs, you can let them like they are !
Now, you can create game profiles. I'll do it with you for Crusader : No Remorse !
Click on the "wizard hat" button to create it with the wizard. Type the "Profile Name" (Crusader : No Remorse), choose the "Game EXE" (if Crusader is installed, take crusader.exe, if not, choose the install file of the CD-ROM) and Setup EXE (if installed, install.exe in the crusader repertory, if not, just let it blank).
After that, if you have already configure defaults, just click on"accept all defaults" button. Crusader : No Remorse is now listed.
If Crusader isn't installed yet, run it to install it and, after, edit the profile (right click) to change "Game EXE" and "Setup EXE" with good files (see above).
I advise you to put the "game info" in the corresponding tab (when you edit profile). I entered that :
Genre : Action/adventure
Developer : Origin Systems
Publisher : Electronic Arts
Year : 1995
And now, to avoid cycling problems, in the "Environment" tab, type a number between 10000 and 15000 in "Cycles" (for me, with a Pentium 3 1 GHz, 14000 is good) and try the game. If you have some problems (expecially with sound), try a different number.
Good luck and good game !
