Hello. I am beginning to see the same symptoms for people who have any ATi Rage based graphic card and they receive a "cannot create rendering..." error message trying to run DOSBox.

Setting the output=XXXXX under dosbox.conf doesn't work no matter the value specified.

SOLUTION:

Setting a ms-dos variable called SDL_VIDEODRIVER=windib may work for you. Be sure output=XXXX is set to surface (just in case). In order to set a variable you need to issue a SET command like this... SET SDL_VIDEODRIVER=windib.

Good luck.

PS - I feel I have to credit some people here, user222, DOSFreak, Snover, Qbix, MiniMax, etc... 😎
