Hi, i have windows xp and i also have arcade games and i have always been able to play it on xp up until a few days ago. suddenly i started getting the message:

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. the system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.

What does this mean? and can it be explained in simple language coz im not too good with computers!!! (y)

that just means YOUR system32 folder---

most likely C:\Windows\System32

paste all the files into the System32 folder

Whatever folder Windows was installed into (c:\windows is default), the system32 folder is inside that.

By the way, that works (it happened to me with God of Thunder (great ye olde DOS game :cool: ).
