Exile II: Crystal Souls is the sequel to the shareware hit Exile: Escape From the Pit. Several years have passed since the events in the first game. Now, the Empire, the cruel monolithic nation ruling the surface world, has realized that Exile, the nation they created, has become highly dangerous. Their troops are now being teleported into Exile in great numbers, overwhelming the defenses of the beleagured souls below.

There is hope, though. It comes in the form of a new, bizarre race of creatures, who live in the deepest of the caves. Will you be able to summon aid to your cause, before every last soul in your homeland is wiped out?

Note for Windows XP (and later) Users -"16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem" Error

Some people have had a problem with our older games not running on Windows XP. Trying to run the game gives an error similar to this one:

16-bit MS-DOS Subsystem path to the program that you are trying to start or install C:\Windows\System32\config.nt The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.

This problem is caused by several files in your operating system being damaged. (This damage can be caused by, among other things, a Trojan horse.) More information about the problem can be found here.

We current have working versions of the damaged files available here. Download them, uncompress them, and copy them into the Windows\System32 folder.

Alternately, you can learn more about this problem and how to repair it using your Windows system disks from Microsoft.
