Thank you. I will have all of the Elder Scrolls main games after I download these. You don't know how much this means to me.

So I tried to download Arena, but at one point in installation it comes up with a message saying that I cannot run it on my system. I looked more on http://www.elderscrolls.com/arena/ and it says that I need to download an emulation program from http://www.dosbox.com/comp_list.php?showID=14, but I can't find the link to download the emulator. My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite C855, and it runs on Windows 8. I checked, and my laptop meets all of the system requirements to run the game. Can someone please tell me why I can't run the game and give me a solution?

It was made for DOS, which is no longer supported by Microsoft as of Windows Vista, and was questionable in XP.  Thats why you need DOSBox.

Thats the DOSBox link for the download, after that Bethesda's instructions should work.  I haven't tried Arena yet, but their directions worked for Daggerfall.

Favourite one i've played has got to be oblivion. Great story line and it has some feeling that makes it better than skyrim imo, good atmosphere.

Thanks Moe, the game is successfully downloaded. However, I watched a few YouTube videos on how to run Arena from DOSBox, and it says that I need to copy and paste the ARENA folder into the games folder. I can copy the folder from my hard drive, but I don't know how to paste something into the DOSBox. Is this games folder even on DOSBox, or is it on my hard drive?
