Re: DOSBox Game Launcher (DOSBox Frontend)

Hi, rcblanke, it's time to thank you for your excellent front-end. Now that I have completely migrated from Windows to Linux, I have started using DBGL as the frontend in Linux. In Windows I am used to D-Fend Reloaded, for which there is no Linux port. Just one thing, - I prefer to compile programs …

Newer Windows : Explorer -> Show files in LIST view Win9x : Install Microsoft Plus!. Set up my favourite Desktop Theme. Newer Windows (XP, 7) : Install MUNT. (A must for me. Can't …

Re: Dosbox dropping pressed keys?

Just dropped in to contribute my similar experiences in GODS while running distribution-specific packages of Dosbox in both latest Arch Linux and Mint 19.3. The spartan becomes unresponsive while a directional movement key is being pressed. I needed to release and press the key again. EDIT : …

Re: Running BAT from autoexec.bat

CALL that Bat, is easy to remember. Yes, it's the CALL command to run an external BATCH file and returns back to the caller. ---***--- call liveinit.bat ---***--- Or you can also "pass" the responsibility to the liveinit.bat file, by placing the "call liveinit.bat" statement at the end of the …
