First post here, so Hi to everyone.

I've been fantasizing with building a physical control/configuration panel for DosBox using arduino. I'd like to basically change inserted disk, increase/decrease cycles, and launch different sound configuration scripts. Ideally, I'd like to include some LCD display to show real time information.

Problem is I haven't seen any type of programming interface for DosBox. I could achieve some of the requirements by directly sending keystrokes with arduino buttons and cycles information could be extracted from DosBox console output. But these approaches sound a bit hacky and I was wondering if there is any better way to do it.

Regards and thanks in advance.
