Game "Hugo" crashing in DosBox

In the Floppy images database the game "Hugo" has the following comment:
"Doesn't work in DOSBox. Asks for a reboot and won't run."

I played around with that today, as I recently got a physical copy of that game.
The error "reboot requested, quitting now" is confirmed in DosBox 0.74.2.

However, the game will run flawlessly with "DosBox ECE (Enhanced Community Edition)" freely available at:
https://yesterplay.net/dosbox-ece-en/

Maybe you would like to add that to the floppy images comments.

That's nice. Could you perhaps share the dumps/hash with us, please? Our set is still unverified.

Ok, I will include this bit in the comments, though I'm sure this is not the only solution and PCem or 86box might also do the job just fine. Thank you.

Ok, I will include this bit in the comments, though something tells me this is not the only solution and PCem, 86box or other DOSBox forks/SVN builds might do the job equally fine. Thank you.

I uploaded the dumps to "Hugo på Nye Eventyr – PC"

Sure, other DosBox forks or more recent SVN versions might also do the job, however I just tested it with the more popular ECE version

Ok, apparently all 3 versions (2 ours and yours) are modified one or the other way (OEM ID, AT, HIGH SCORE files) of which ID 1220 seems to be the least affected, quite correctible and potentially verifiable.

However, I got some reading errors on disk 5 at the end during image creation.
But I guess it won't do much as disk 5 uses approx. 60% of the available space. (Copying the files manually 1 by 1 didn't cause any errors.)

Clearly the blank sectors.
