I've tried getting 7th Guest to work once or twice before myself but couldn't do it. It's probably just a matter of getting the right version of the game though. I've gotten Alone in the Dark working and I would think that would be more intense on the Box than 7th Guest would be.

Number Munchers...I remember that game..it's an old Apoge title. It should work great in dosxbox.
Myst was available on the PSX, but I do not know if it runs in the Xbox emulator though.
The 7th guest MIGHT be playable in dosxbox. It is a CD-ROM based game so installing and then running the game may require a few tricks. You may have to install on PC and then copy some files over or make a custom bat file. But that's half the fun of messing around with dosxbox......Sometimes you get lucky and it installs and plays correctly the first time I still have my old CD's of the 7th Guest, I MAY have some free time at commercial breaks during the game tomorrow to tinker around with it.
The 11th hours was a later Dos game release and I would be surprised if it was playable. A core update would help, and then so would some CPU cycles and some RAM

For 7th guest, check Post #101 and Post #112 .
I just read the dosxbox compatibility thread. Interesting.
yeah, I have actually found a few games that run on dosbox that were not even listed on the dosxbox compatibility list... so I guess it is reliable to a point. I'm guessing people put a game on there, tried to run it and then moved on, without tweaking it or playing around too much.

Change to drive letter never-never land and mount the first disc to drive 817458-B and the second disc to the modified kernel xj714 on your hacked S:\ drive. But make sure to run "crashestoprompt.exe" repeatedly on your PC before FTPing to your box. Also blow on your cartridge before inserting the game, I also hear that rubbing alcohol helps......
I got 7th guest to work and it's real easy to do. The game runs a bit slow, but the sound was correct. Maybe with some further cycle and frameskip tweaking it could be even more playable.
10 simple steps for 7th Guest dosxbox emulation.
1. Copy both your CD1 and CD2 into ISO's. I used MagicISO.
2. Extract the contents of CD2. I used MagicISO here as well.
3. FTP both CD1 and CD2 ISO's and the extracted CD2 contents to the box into the disk/rom directory in your dosbox emulator. I chose to put all my stuff into a directory called T7G. Dos tip: make sure to use file names and directory names under 8 characters long. We complain about FatX naming limitations...but we just don't remember how good we have it compared to the time when dinosaurs roamed the earth and Dos limited you to only 8 characters for a file name Sometimes long file names are a problem with dosbox, other times they are not so just follow the rule and you will save yourself a LOT of headache.
4. Fire up the install.bat on the extracted CD2 dir in dosxbox. DO NOT USE THE ISO HERE!
5. Use the DEFAULT SETTINGS the installer chooses. (Default install location, sound, and music card etc.)
6. When the install is completed it will tell you to type t7g. Click the left stick, type t7g, and hit enter.
7. The game will start and ask for you to "insert disc one"
8. Click the right stick, go down, and select the "change CD" menu button.
9. You have three choices: use a REAL CD, a disc image file (ISO), or a directory. Select disc image file (ISO) and then select the CD1 ISO file that you ripped and FTP'd to the box.
10. Double click on the giant "insert disc one" button on the game screen and you can play an old school classic!

It is also listed as non working under Post #4 in the PCSXbox Compatibility Thread.

I probably made the compatibility entry for Myst. As far as I know it doesn't work. I've tried several different rips. The only true test would be if somebody had the actual disks and ripped them perfectly. I think the PSX suffers because a lot of the rips are bad and they're all in a ton of different formats. It's not like you could have a GoodPSX set and have 7 different rips of the same game in a folder like the smaller systems, so I understand why this is so difficult.
yeah, I was actually thinking that might be the issue with Myst but I have a real copy of the game and ripped it myself with no luck.. I think that Myst just has too much going on to work on Xbox. Another Myst like game I could never get working is X-Files for PSx ... but that kind of makes since because its a full motion video game, it was a big ordeal ripping that too at 4 disks... I should of just ripped on disk and tried it out lol But it may work with a PC emulator, although I havent tried it... as of now I still have the PSX hooked up to play Myst and Xfiles.
