Re: Falcon 3.0 floppy install

Disk images should be of the standard type, where the file size matches the capacity. Perhaps you created a sparse image, one that dynamically resizes, which is not supported by DOSBox. The BXIMAGE tool from Bochs is what I've used, and you should be able to find suitable empty images via search …

Re: Falcon 3.0 floppy install

If you use IMGMOUNT with the HDD image and BOOT with the floppy images as I wrote in the example, it works for me in 0.74(-3) and SVN. It's actually the same method recommended to FORMAT a blank HDD image and install DOS on it. Perhaps you use IMGMOUNT with the floppy images and then use "BOOT -l a" …

Re: A DOS program to test OPL2 percussion (0xBD)

As I mentioned, if you disable XMS and EMS in DOSBox settings then you won't get the XMS error with RAC. I'm unaware of anyone else with problems creating an account on SourceForge, but perhaps you can contact the admins there to see what the issue is. There is a section of the forum named "DOSBox …

Re: A DOS program to test OPL2 percussion (0xBD)

Please use an SVN build of DOSBox, as it appears that the DRO capture issue has been previously reported and a fix committed: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=41&t=38029 The RDOS Adlib Capture utility issue with XMS was also previously reported: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=5551 …

Re: Playing *.avi files in Windows 3.11

in Windows
AVI is a wrapper format, and many different codecs can be used on the contained audio and video streams. There are utility programs that will tell you which codecs are used in an AVI file. Installing VFW drivers (Video For Windows) in Windows 3.x allows decoding of many commonly used video …

Re: Text mode aspect ratio correction

You are apparently concerned less with aspect ratio than with the appearance of the text , because the first screenshot has corrected 4:3 aspect and the second does not. At the risk of repeating myself: In 0.74(-3) the pixel aspect ratio of text modes is intentionally forced to 1.0 in order to avoid …

Re: Text mode aspect ratio correction

What machine= and output= setting are you using with SVN? There is an issue with the aspect correction of 350-line modes, which includes text modes, with machine=ega, but other machine types are not affected. Try the output=opengl with glshader=sharp settings for sharper aspect-corrected text.

Re: replacing Z Drive contents possible?

You have to *execute* an alternate shell (command interpreter) in order to replace DOSBox's internal shell, and I don't see you doing that in your example. You can use the COMMAND.COM from MS-DOS 5.0 or 6.22, but to use the one from 6.22 you must first use the command "VER SET 6 22" to change the …

Re: Text mode aspect ratio correction

In 0.74(-3) the pixel aspect ratio of text modes is intentionally forced to 1.0 in order to avoid interpolation, because the interpolated symbols can look quite ugly on lower host resolutions depending on output method. However, with the prevalence of higher host resolutions now, SVN does correct …
