Re: dosbox-staging (DOSBox Git repo)

Hello guys, I would like to ask if it is possible to tell DOSBox-staging the path to the soundfont file? Unfortunately, I could not find any information about it. Does this require the fluidsynth patch (which, as I understand it, is not currently incorporated)? @AlexRK I believe it requires …

Re: DOSBox's BIG-Endian issues

That static analysis issue is rubbish; (…) I disagree. The code had not enough information for tool to decide what was author's intention, so static analyzer issued warnings, basically saying: "hey, buddy, I see you are copying exactly 14 bytes from a packed struct of size bigger than 14, to a …

Re: DOSBox's BIG-Endian issues

staging still has big-endian issues in the ZMBV codec when capturing 32bpp (incorrect motion vectors are chosen causing poor compression), not to mention the memory leaks. Still waiting to hear exactly what regressions are in the new AVI code... dosbox-staging had 2 resource leaks detected via …

Re: DOSBox's BIG-Endian issues

Huh? I thought all PPC fixes were already merged to SVN trunk; some of them were already merged to dosbox-staging as is (scaler), other ones were replaced with alternatives that are a bit simpler (screenshots) or avoid unnecessary buffers for byteswapping (sound recording). Do we have some new …

Re: dosbox-staging (DOSBox Git repo)

if output == opengl && glshader != none -> glshader? That might be something for upstream I think you mean disabling scaler when glshader is working - and I agree. Plus a little bit of code to change the default window resolution based on selected scaler option (while not applying the scaler itself …

Re: dosbox-staging (DOSBox Git repo)

You may as well just set the default window resolution to 640x480 instead. (…) No, I can't - it will downscale perfectly fine 800x600 and 1024x768 windows. New defaults were selected to minimize the chance of users needing to go in and override them. They are not set in stone - we'll likely change …

Re: dosbox-staging (DOSBox Git repo)

Having both glshader=sharp and scaler=normal2x as default settings seems a bit counterproductive. Right, but scaler still affects the default window size. We'll probably get rid of it and use scaler=none once window resizing feature will be finished: https://lbry.tv/dosbox-staging-windows-test-1:3 …

Re: dosbox-staging (DOSBox Git repo)

I think it's time for a progress update :) There was lots of activity recently - both in SVN and Git. We're keeping up-to-date with the latest SVN developments (r4328 for build below), so I will include them in the changelog. Overall over last month, 20 commits landed in SVN trunk, additional 115 …

Re: dosbox-staging (DOSBox Git repo)

"either rewrite DOSBox buildsystem in cmake" I have been working on porting dosbox build system to cmake in a private repo with both Linux and Windows compatibility, but progress is slow due to work and other stuff. Do share :) Upload your branch somewhere, it might prevent duplication of efforts. …

Re: dosbox-staging (DOSBox Git repo)

I brought it up because those are the two patches that I regularly made efforts to keep working on current versions of dosbox. So the question raised was "are these threaded" and the answer is yes. The way I would like them to be patched in is so that recording the game video records the audio ( …

Re: dosbox-staging (DOSBox Git repo)

Just before anyone else will jump in here and put the flames in discussion. Calm down, people :) Just few minutes ago me and krcroft had a friendly chat with Qbix about how to proceed and what kind of changes are acceptable upstream. From now on, the cooperation between two projects should go a bit …

Re: dosbox-staging (DOSBox Git repo)

@Kisai thanks for summary, but discussing implementation details on Vogons is really inconvenient - it's too easy to derail the discussion or lose someone's comment. The most productive way forward will be to open two new topics in dosbox-staging bugtracker (one for MT32, other for Fluid), or maybe …

Re: Some guys opinion about DOSBox

in Milliways
I have very little experience with Linux and never used dosbox on it, but it seems that on Linux it needs some bug fixing. I spend almost all of my time on Linux so do most of my time testing on Linux, so I know about the issues affecting Linux. But judging by questions and complaints posted here …

Re: Some guys opinion about DOSBox

in Milliways
Apparently I was one of the few people on earth which typed "INTRO" at the command prompt and read it. But yeah, Dosbox is what it is. Can it be improved? Sure but at the moment it's still the best and most versatile Dos emulator. INTRO is not going to describe e.g. why MIDI port detection does not …

Re: Dosbox dropping pressed keys?

@Gernot66 The problem is rooted in using SDL 1.2, which is unmaintained since 2013. Some Linux distributions are starting to drop SDL 1.2 from the repositories because almost whole open source world moved on to SDL2, DOSBox is one of very few stragglers.
