Colonization (DOS version) stalls for a very long time
(I aborted it after 10 minutes or so) after playing the
opening on the "Loading game..." message. This is when
starting the game using the included COL.BAT. Starting
VICEROY.EXE (which is probably what the game is doing
internally) directly works and takes you to the main
menu. From there on the game appears to work correctly.

    As I don't have the game, could you attach the COL.bat file or
    post it contents ?

    Also the listing of the files in de colonization directory would
    be nice. It would enable me to reproduce the error. Without
    having the game. It's the only option I have for fixing it.
