I have tested quite extensively this distro and it holds real potential. It is much more performance consistent than a typical DosBox running on top of a normal operating system, with multiple apps and background processes. Graphics and CPU emulation speed is nearly on par with Windows DosBox classic.

The graphics output quality and input lag are both very good, which is important when you resort to emulation.

I noticed and I understand why the distro works like that. First of all the distro is TCE (Tiny Core Linux with Extensions). It is a good choice. As far as I looked into the repository it seems that no newer Dosbox was released for the platform. Although it is quite difficult to customize, the DosBox configuration can be modified as needed if you go into the archives and search for obvious clues. The most important improvement, however, is to make the implementation of a recent Dosbox such as Dosbox-X in this distro.

A short question, I visted github, followed the dropbox link, and downloaded DBD_BETA.iso .
Then I tried to boot within VMware Workstation Player 16, and was surprised that the DOSBOX window at the end is soooo small.
Using the "fullscreen" option in VMware WP did not resized the DOSBOX window, still stayed in the same size.
Because the ISO starts straight into DOSBOX (without any stop in a linux shell), how can I influence the size of the DOSBOX window/screen ?

Are the VMware additions or at least the video driver installed?

If I know what in VMWare listed Linux distro fits with the here choosen TinyCoreLinux (is it debian based?), I would try again. I've tested it with Ubuntu (as the preselection for the OS).
Also, I am not sure I would be able to install the VMware additions if there is no OS access (instead, just DOSBOX).
