Re: Type command with pause?

I have C:\DOS\MORE.COM in my path, but doesn't work to pause the page as the "fake" internal COMMAND.COM of DOSBox doesn't seem to support it. If I run COMMAND.COM from MSDOS6.22 copied to DOSBox drive (actually a Win dir mounted as a drive) I can use the " | more" trick of course.... Use the …

Re: Type command with pause?

After some research I've found that Less177e.zip from https://www.mmnt.net/db/0/1/ftp.cc.umanitoba.ca/software/pc_migrate/ seems to work fine (press 'q' to quit text view, and you can also move up/down with PgUP/Down, Home/End) Other good source of old programs for 16-bit: https://www.bttr-software. …

Type command with pause?

DOSBox has an internal Type command, to display for example a HELP.TXT ASCII file contents... My problem is "Type HELP.TXT | more" doesn't work and won't pause the page as expected. This Type version does not have a /P option built-in, so... how can I do if I need to read (with page pause!) a simple …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

Having what is probably the same joystick issue that was just mentioned - the POV hat isn't recognized by the keymapper if joysticktype is set to fcs . Setting it to auto works fine, it's just FCS mode that's broken. Basically it's currently the opposite of how it is in vanilla DOSBox. You got it! …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

UPDATE: I just saw you already posted the output of the status windows. And it's just as I thought: The stick reports more axis than it really has: The joystick is still detected: "Using joystick Controller (Fighting Stick mini 4 kai) with 5 axes, 10 buttons and 1 hat." as it did with r4288 but now …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

Yep, works fine with 90% of games (for the other 10% is because some games REQUIRE LSTICK and don't support DPAD/POV-HAT). Have no idea what those people are talking about, It's just a generic XInput DPAD for directions + buttons. I also have a Speedlink SL-650212-BKRD COMPETITION PRO EXTRA - …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

LOST USB ARCADE JOYSTICK SUPPORT WITH BUILD r4459 I switched from ECE r4288 to r4459 and lost support for arcade stick "Hori Fight Stick Mini"... The joystick is still detected: "Using joystick Controller (Fighting Stick mini 4 kai) with 5 axes, 10 buttons and 1 hat." as it did with r4288 but now …

Re: Max Payne 1 & 2 Startup Hang Patch

in Windows
All of a sudden (it worked fine for months!) Windows 10 (19043.1526) + NVidia 511.65 refuse to launch the new exe for Max Payne 1 with a privilege error: https://i.ibb.co/r3S7FZp/image.png (Denied access - Accede with admin privileges and try again) Old exe (unfixed) works fine but requires the …

Re: Emulating EAX on any onboard sound hardware?

This worked for me with Thief 3 Deadly Shadows: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2291848228 Try this simple solution for EAX on any sound HW. Tested and working in some games (Dragon's Lair 3D, Thief 3, Prince of Persia 2008, Baldur's Gate II). It's the easiest and working …

Re: Max Payne 1 & 2 Startup Hang Patch

in Windows
Is it possible to add a 60 fps cap for Max Payne 1 & 2 together with Widescreen fixes ? Workaround for Max Payne 1: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1934864423 but it doesn't work with Max Payne 2 which always v-syncs to actual screen refresh, while I'd like to cap it to 60fps …

Re: Game will ONLY work with CD in drive

Read here where to download and basic instructions to understand how it works (in this case with Max Payne): https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1934864423 https://i.ibb.co/TvTzbQX/1934864423-preview-App-Comp-Toolkit.jpg https://docs.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-hardware/get- …

Re: Game will ONLY work with CD in drive

in Windows
Yes it is but is poorly documented, and most users ignore it :( It's actually able to make many old games work on Windows 10/11 without DX7/8 wrappers or unofficial shady patches, and can fix non-working games in DX9 on modern PC. I've written some guides on Steam to fix also relatively old games …

Re: Game will ONLY work with CD in drive

in Windows
I use these settings with MS-ACT (Application Compatibility Toolkit, AKA Compatibility Administrator tool) and don't have anything else to do: https://i.ibb.co/kx9zDTZ/image.png The only issue is with CD music not playing in Loop (have to pause and resume the game to "wake up" CD music after first …
