Re: Freedos vs Dos 6.22

in DOS
I am using this in an Arcade Machine that runs dmame. It's been a while I did some things with that apart from playing, but iirc, you can also install from USB sticks. But you have to mount the stick during boot, its not hot plugable while the machine is on. edit: it just came to my mind, that I am …

Re: DOSBox in fullscreen disables second monitor

I had similar issues when connecting a CRT to my laptop, for the good old brain melt. It took a while to figure out, how to get the fullscreen dosbox working on the CRT. No problems with window mode. I tried a LOT of settings, in both Linux and Dosbox, but the fullscreen always appeared on the main …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

Success :blush: Just in case, another Debian noob reads this: I had to: apt install libsdl1.2-dev Then I ran across the ....mt32... error discussed a few pages back during make. Installing Scummvm didn't fix it. I had to install these two debs libmt32emu-2.3.0.deb libmt32emu-dev-2.3.0.deb from here: …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

Thank you very much, _Rob. This contributes a lot to my understanding of how compiling works. Sounds doable :-) It's not so easy to understand, if you are missing some basics. Or maybe all of the basics. Almost all of the literature and help files I found were expecting a much higher level of …

Re: New MS-DOS Games Launcher / Menu System App

In the launcher menu, for certain games that need special boot options, i will start a bash script, that checks the status and if it's …

Re: New MS-DOS Games Launcher / Menu System App

in DOS
I set up a Dos machine for my friends, in a private arcade room, with a couple of arcades and pinballs; the goal was to make it as easy as possible. So I went with a menu program as well. Because of all the different boot options, some games need, I used Dosbox - for the beginning. It's working very …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

Thanks to all for the answers! :blush: My programming skills are limited to writing simple bash scripts, so compiling is not something, I completely understand in all its glamour - but I understood, what you were saying, with the dependencies :-) If I understood everything right: The binaries (that …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

Helloes, I tried both versions, the ECE version and the normal SVN on Linux Debian 9 right now, downloaded from the Yesterplay80 blog. I am getting an error... ./dosbox: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL_sound-1.0.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory. ... …

Re: dune 2 mouse issue

This thread made me revisit both, Dune 2 and Dune 2000. I really love the graphics of Dune 2 and prefer it over Dune 2000, but having to select every single unit is a little too old school, for my taste. :cool: It's not flawless, for example you can bomb the enemy base without a reaction of the CPU …
