DOSBox startup splash disable or show in fullscreen?

I've been setting up DOSBox games in a fullscreen frontend recently, and have hit a bit of a snag: when a game starts via DOSBox, the windowed splash screen displays first even if I have fullscreen set (the game itself then loads in fullscreen as expected). Have I missed something simple to …

Re: Amstrad PC5268 bundled games (Prince of Persia and F-15 Strike Eagle II)

Just thought you (or others) might be interested that I've posted some Amstrad related stuff on my game mod blog here ! I'm in hospital tomorrow for surgery, but hope to be back in action soon and will be posting more Amstrad stuff (as well as updating those rather rushed posts with pictures, etc.) …

Still working on getting my patch finished to upload, but it's been fun revisiting those old games and - more so - those nostalgic (for me) Amstrad installers! What parameters were problematic for Links? I'll tweak my patch to fix them on emulated machines. I have been trying to get another "needs a …

Leather Goddesses of Phobos 2 help (speech gadget + damaged install disk)

in DOS
I just found this game in an old storage box... all 17 (!) floppy disks and am wanting to play it. Ideally, I wanted to do so on one of my old retro DOS machines, however it appears that my floppy Disk 8 for the game is damaged. All the others install fine, but disk 8 gives me a CRC error during …

Yup, that's exactly what I found in PCem and DOSBox, too, so it seems PoP and F15SE2 are indeed wanting real Amstrads to run, I think. I've just finished my little patch and will post it tomorrow if you'd like to test it, but in the meantime, here's something interesting about that weird "glitchy" …

Thanks so much! That's the same Counterpoint disk I have (still prefer it to early Windows as a DOS shell) and those system disks look like the same ones in that Mega-PC bundle image, so excited about those! I agree about the proprietary parts being such an issue, and I remember Amstrad being a bit …

Re: Amstrad PC5268 bundled games (Prince of Persia and F-15 Strike Eagle II)

in DOS
Thanks heaps! :) A quick test decompressing the Prince of Persia (LHA) archive found on disk one gives the exact same corrupt "gibberish" file I got from my identical disk. I am wondering now if this was on purpose to prevent non-Amstrad users from playing this copy of the game (if indeed prince.com …

Re: Amstrad PC5268 bundled games (Prince of Persia and F-15 Strike Eagle II)

Yes!!! Those are the same floppies and the same red/yellow (thick!) manual! I'd love images of them to compare with mine! I thought I was the only one with surviving disks and even then wondered if mine were damaged! I'd also be forever indebted to you for images of your other disks, as those things …

Re: Amstrad PC5268 bundled games (Prince of Persia and F-15 Strike Eagle II)

Sounds like exact same bundle I got with my 4386SX. Can't remember trying to get them working on another machine so I can't vouch for compatibility with other systems. If you like I could dig them out and image them if you want to have a look (assuming that is ok with forum rules about posting disk …
