What works

Everything works, but there is a workaround, instead of running the executable of dungeon keeper directly, you use some shortcuts GOG has configured to call Dungeon Keeper using DOSBox, for me since i prefer having options before launching the game, i've selected the shortcut file "Launch Graphic Mode Setup.lnk" as the default executable, it shows a window called DosBox Configuration before starting the game which asks for graphic configs, i've selected Direct3D as the default Renderer not OpenGL, deselected Full Screen since it crashes using full screen. On the advanced settings i've marked Keep Aspect Ratio, Scaling Engine i've selected normal3x, window resolution i've tried but didnt change much i used my monitor resolution 1920x1080 and mouse sensitivity i reduced to 50, since old the resolution and sensitivity long ago was for lower resolutions and mouses nowadays can do much more than that, so i've lowered, because it becomes to sensitive and becomes unplayable.

What does not

Full Screen

Workarounds

Launching by default the shortcut "Launch Graphic Mode Setup.lnk" instead of the "Launch Dungeon Keeper Gold.lnk", since inside these shorcuts there is arguments to call DOSbox in the same folder and dosbox then calls KEEPER.EXE.

What was not tested

didnt tried long, just launched the game, played for five minutes to test.
