Just finished installing this game via the new installer, but when i try to run it it opens dosbox then closes again after about 1-2sec. Tried it in a few different compatability modes to no avail. Thoughts?

i was mostly wanting to install this way to avoid potential crashes(hence why i installed the qfg1 vga version the same way, which i plan to play through first, then import to this one) I can get the game to run if i dont use the new installer, but i'd rather have any patches/whatever it adds to avoid potential game breaking crashes.

oh something i forgot. I do have both qfg1 vga and qfg3(installed from new installer) assigned to use the same dosbox.exe file, could that cause any issues?

You should request help on the forum where you got the installer. I might not check this forum everyday. If you downloaded the installer from sierrahelp.com, run the diagnostic and attach the results on the sierrahelp forums. If you downloaded elsewhere I cannot guarantee that it has not been tampered with, infected or outdated.
