What is a 1280 and 2018 error

I am trying to install and play two versions of the Sensible World of Soccer from the original CDs.

I did get it to work about a year ago, and I am on Manjaro plasma, the current LTS version.

but some how I just cannot either get it to load or even install properly, all I can do is to have the install.exe file show the configuration not the initial install.

I have also paid for this on good old games and the start.sh will not start either from their original config files.

granted I have dosbox installed and to the current version, but found it difficult trying to mount c:/

If anyone is technical I could send over a few .img files to get it sorted.
