Are you playing on Windows 8 or 8.1? I am having the same problem.

Download Zandornum and use that.

Also, if you play online, FFS change your name from "player". (zandronum and steam DON'T talk to each other, so you need to change it manually.)

Same here on Windows 8.1, stuck on the title screen.

If you had titled your thread with any thought someone with a similar problem or someone who already knows a solution might find it. Or do you click on all "can't play" threads among hundreds of threads hoping you can apply your knowledge to help? Just a tip...

EDIT: this solution by HonestFlames posted in seems to work. I think ultimatem.conf is for the mouse control version and ultimate.conf for the "classic" one, so editing just the one you will play should be enough.

Related to my earlier note about descriptive titles... guess what that other thread with the solution was titled. It was only two threads down from yours, but you didn't think to check it before making your own because it too had a title that in no way referred to the problem. I bet if it had been called "Stuck on title screen (Windows 8)" you would have clicked it instantly ;)

Also keep in mind that the Steam version uses an extremely old version of Dosbox, certainly pre-Windows 7, possibly even pre-Vista. I recommend that you - if you don't straight up download Zandronum - go to, download the latest windows version and replace all instances of dosbox.exe in your steamapps\common folder with that version.
