Here is a script to download and install Arctic Adventure 1-4. It is a DOS game which was made freeware a while ago.

edit: I accidently called the game Arctic Command instead of Arctic Adventure :sad:

Do you have any comments on this script? When I send it in for validation it seems to be rejected.

This game was made freeware and can be downloaded for free. The script downloads the game
and installs it.

If you do not want this script in PlayOnLinux, can you please tell me?

There is dosprefixcreate in this script and it shouldn't be there.

Where can I find the documentation on dosbox support? I think I missed it somehow. I have updated the script in my first post.

The script from my first post was sent in for validation, after fixing it as you suggested. However, I did not get any feedback. Instead, the script was simply deleted.

If you do not want a certain script, like this script or any other script I will submit in the future, can you please tell me? If I try to fix a script which will not be accepted I am wasting my time.
