Re: Windows 98 - Controller not recognized ?

You can check if the joystick works in DOS using the test programs in the attachment (previously uploaded by rfnagel). There are 3 test programs included in it, namely JOYCHECK.EXE, JOYTEST.EXE and TMSCOPE.EXE. If it works, then it means something is wrong with the configuration of your Windows 98 …

Re: old program help

From the DOSBox developers: DOSBox IS NOT SUITED TO RUN YOUR NON-GAMING DOS APPLICATION For running non-gaming DOS applications, it is recommended to use something that officially support them, such as DOSBox-X and vDos/vDosPlus. However, for things that are directly related to life-support …

Re: old program help

Dosbox does not support apps, its for games only. Well this just isn't true. We've been using dosbox on company laptops for years on windows 7 to support these old programs. Moving on to Windows 10 has made it difficult though. DOSBox is officially for games only. It may or may not work for other …

Re: Unable to see subdirectory

Depending on the version you are talking about, DOS also accepts spaces if quotes are used. MS-DOS 7.x supports long file names, and quotes are required if there are spaces in the file names (quotes are optional otherwise).

Re: Installation Windows 98 SE + 3DFX drivers ?!

Sebiohazard: You can find Linux RPM packages for version 0.83.4 from: https://github.com/joncampbell123/dosbox-x/bl … ster/INSTALL.md For Linux Mint you will need to use the alien command to convert RPM packages to DEB packages and then install: https://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/821

Re: DOSBox-X branch

Re: DOSBox-X branch

..and as I explained, it's not, and "not how real DOS system works" is meaningless, it's a naming conflict. Just as nonsense is the notion of an ubiquitous use of cycles exe/com/bat outside of games.. no. You are ignoring the very simple fact: DOSBox-X is a DOS emulator, not a DOSBox emulator. Can …

Re: DOSBox-X branch

awgamer: I also think it is pretty reasonable to make that feature disabled by default in DOSBox-X, because that is simply not how a real DOS system (MS-DOS, PC-DOS, DR-DOS etc) works, and it can also cause much confusion and name clashes. It might work for vanilla DOSBox because DOSBox is …

Re: DOSBox-X branch

DOSBox-X does not allow you to specify config commands on the dosbox-x command line, unless you type "CONFIG" in front of it. So the syntax is "config -set cycles=max", or in the config file, set it as [cpu] cycles=max Or if your using the built-in configuration GUI, make sure you SAVE the settings …

Re: DOSBox-X branch

Just want to add that "config -writeconf filename" or "config -all -writeconf filename" definitely works at this time. In older DOSBox-X versions (before 0.83.2) there were indeed some bugs in the config command, but they apparently have been fixed in recent versions. The editing cycle function ( …

Re: DOSBox-X branch

I'm not sure this post goes here or should be a separate thread but, trying dosbox-x and confronted with nothing but annoyance. Trying and failing to set cycles to max, doesn't recognize standard dosbox command to set, okay I think, I'll just write the conf and see what dosbox-x is doing to set …

Re: Large HD images (DOSBOX)

Ok thanks, what is now best way to boot Win9x with Dosbox? In old Dosbox i used these in *.bat from booted Dosbox with this: imgmount X D:\Games\!DosboxWin9XDisk\win98.img boot -l c But its only one disk image, now i would need boot Windows 9x with 2 disk images, one old FAT16 and one FAT32 ad …
