I'd like to try this game, and maybe demo it on the FreeDOS YouTube
channel - but I haven't been able to run this game consistently on
FreeDOS. I think I need help.

I read the dosbox.conf file so I can see how to run the game.
Sometimes when I run it, the game actually runs (but unplayably fast)
and other times it just sits there and chews CPU. At first, I thought
it was because I tried to run SLOWDOWN, but sometimes the game doesn't
run if I have SLOWDOWN running, and sometimes the game doesn't run if
I don't have SLOWDOWN running. So it's not SLOWDOWN.

I'm running this on QEMU, if that helps:

qemu-system-i386 -enable-kvm -m 32 -boot menu=on -device sb16 -device
adlib -hda freedos.qcow2 -hdb mystuff.qcow2

The "freedos" drive is my C: drive (installed from T2310) and the
"mystuff" drive is my D: drive, where I extracted the gminer.zip file.
