Re: Virtual printer

in DOSBox Patches
adding printing directly to the printer will give a lot headaches. (especially if the result isn't what they expect) True, but any emulation gives headaches, see this forum :). Dosbox is for me still an emulator. With as little contact with host hardware at all. The only exception to this is midi. …

Re: Floppy disk ( A: ) support?

in DOSBox General
Hi there again, another question: did you support the drive A: at BIOS level? Ideas? Well, I'm not familiair with the exact game but copy-protection like that often does not rely on BIOS-calls but tries to access the hardware directly. However, I don't think Captain Blood uses this trick. At least …

dir ..

This question may have arissen before, but a quick search in the forum didn't reveal it. The problem I'm experiencing is that a "dir ..", instead of showing the contents of the parent directory, shows only the "." and ".." entry of the current directory. The built in "dir" command of DOSbox isn't …

Re: black cauldron

Dosbox defaults in auto mode where games can detect tandy graphics too, but for some stupid reason sierra developers fucked up and use tandy routines while they select ega output. Well at least that's my guess, so go blame sierra. Of course, it's very easy to use strong language when blaming others …

Re: black cauldron

A little update: I tested the following games: BC version 2.00, AGI 2.439 KQ1 version 2.0F, AGI 2.917 KQ2 version 2.2, AGI 2.917 DDPG version 1.0C, AGI 2.272 (Donald Duck's Playground) LSL1 version 1.00, AGI 2.440 SQ1 version 2.2, AGI 2.917 Of those games, all with an AGI version lower than 2.917 …

Re: black cauldron

Don't forget to try the "machine" variable in dosbox.conf. I did, and the results are rather queer. When using "auto", the results resemble those of the original poster. When using "cga", BC uses some 16 color mode, but the colors are rather weird (Taran has purple hair) and all text is partially …

Re: Clarification

in DOSBox General
You need to keep in mind the vast majority of us are NOT computer programmers and a simplification of the readme file would be helpful. YOU need to keep in mind that DOSbox is made completely by volunteers, who spend their free time programming so we can play those nice ol' DOS games again. Also, …

Re: Things broken in 0.61

Well considering that tandy sound only happened in a tandy machine and that a tandy doesn't have a vga videocard, you should see the problem.... Actually, I don't. There shouldn't be a good reason why DOSbox would link Tandy graphics with the Tandy sound. I suspect they are two seperate things in …

Re: ECHO is off

in DOSBox General
The fact that "ECHO is off" is displayed, is not the source of the failure, nor is it a sign of failure per se. It's printed by DOS(box) when you issue the ECHO command without an "on" or "off" setting from the command prompt or from a batch file. Maybe you could examine the batchfile to see what's …

Re: Pausing Dosbox?

Well, you could of course try something with the Windows-key or that other special Win-only key. …
