Hello, I hope this post will not get ignored as it is the last piece of the puzzle i need to make my Wii a DOS gaming machine.
So what is the story. Rather short, I have some games and i use this menu as my game launcher. All works perfect except one thing - cannot change the config file or mapper file while dosbox is already running. At first I hoped to be able to switch .conf files with the CONFIG command but when I've read the documentation it was clear to me it will not be possible.
So I thought, well, maybe I cannot reload different config file but I should be able to change cycles, frameskip etc. Well, maybe I can change the cycles, and frameskip amount but what I also need is changing the mapper file for different games. I've tried:
CONFIG -SET "SDL MAPPERFILE=MYMAPPERFILE.MAP"
CONFIG -GET "SDL MAPPERFILE"
gave me the result I wanted but it does not work, i do not see the effect of the keys I mapped.
So the big question is - am I doing something wrong? Or something is not working? Or maybe there is a custom patch needed? And if so, is there any hope someone will be able to produce one?
I only need to reload the mapper file and see the results. Changing cycles or frameskip can be done with the chain of commands, no problem with that - i am not picky. I just really need to be able to change the mapper file while dosbox is running.
Hope to hear from you about that.
