    I keep getting the error "could not read abm_filename: 1:graphicotherwait.abm". My copy doesn't have an install file, just Harvester.exe. I'm very bad at this, is there any way to fix this?

    Ok this is in spanish but if you don't understand you can use google translate. I wrote this instructions after 2 days of work and worked for me.

    Crear una carpeta en C: llamada, por ejemplo "oldgames"
    Montar el CD con la opción 2) b) indicada debajo
    Instalar harvester por ejemplo en C:oldgamesHARVEST

    Cada vez que vas a iniciar el juego debés hacer esto.

    1) Montar con el UltraISO la imagen del CD en cuestion (normalmente en j:) el HARVESTER1.iso

    2) Dentro del Dosbox ejecutar:

    a) mount c c:oldgames [ENTER]

    b) mount d j: -t cdrom [ENTER]

    c) c: [ENTER]

    d) cd HARVEST [ENTER]

    e) harvester.exe [ENTER]

    En el futuro el juego nos puede pedir el CD2 o 3 así que habría que remontar con el Ultra ISO

    BEST WAY TO MOUNT ALL 3 ISO's WITHOUT VIRTUAL CLONE DRIVES AND PLAY THE GAME AGAIN!!! Don't panic, just read!

    write this in to DOSBox (without the [ENTER])

    mount c c:oldgames -t dir -freesize 400 [ENTER]
    imgmount d c:d1harvester.iso c:d2harvester.iso c:d3harvester.iso -t cdrom [ENTER]
    c: [ENTER]
    cd harvest [ENTER]
    harvest [ENTER]

    OR just copy this to your harvest.conf file which you made yourself
    ****************************THESE ARE JUST STARS************************************
    [autoexec]
    mount c c:oldgames -t dir -freesize 400
    imgmount d c:d1harvester.iso c:d2harvester.iso c:d3harvester.iso -t cdrom
    c:
    cd harvest
    harvest
    ****************************THESE ARE JUST STARS************************************
    Tiny .conf file tutorial:
    1. open up notepad
    2. click "filesave as" and choose "all files" in the "Save as type" section
    3. write "harvest.conf" and save
    4. open the saved in a text editor
    5. copy the lines above "between the stars" in to your harvest.conf file and save
    6. move this file in to your game folder if you installed as in this video.
             If you installed in other folder then change the location where needed
    7. Go in to your DOSBox folder
             Should be here "C:Program Files (x86)DOSBox-0.74"
    8. Make a new shortcut for your DOSBox.exe file and move it anywhere you want.
    9. Click the right mouse button and go to "Properties"
    10. In the "Shortcut" tab search for "Target:"
    11. Delete all the line or change it just to look like this
            "C:Program Files (x86)DOSBox-0.74DOSBox.exe" -noconsole -conf c:oldgamesharvestharvest.conf “c:oldgamesharvestharvest.exe”
    12. And again I warn you…
            If you installed in other folder then change the location where needed
    13. Click "Apply" "Ok" and YOU ARE DONE!!!

    ** And if you wish in the same "Shortcut" tab search for an option "Change icon" and browse your game folder for the original icon.

    It seems most people have a problem with this game running DosBox when it comes to fighting, but you'd have to actually play the game to know this. So…  this is almost useless.
