I thought I'd delve in and see if I can fix this bug myself.
I compiled DOSBOX SVN using Mingw and guess what - bug already squashed. Thanks to whoever fixed that config bug!
Hi all! I think I found a bug, or at least, would love to know how to fix it.
game: Tie Fighter 95 collectors
Problem: setting joystick parameters in .conf works, but setting /identical/ configuration using the conf tool breaks it.
how to reproduce.
The following configuration works:
If I start the game, it detects the joystick.
However, the following commands result in the joystick not being detected.
config -set "joystick joysticktype 2axis"
config -set "joystick buttonwrap true"
In fact, this demonstrates the bug:
- start with above config file
- start game. joystick works. quit game.
- restart dosbox, same config file
- type the config commands
- run config -get to confirm all is well
- start game. joystick doesn't work.
In both instances, config -get tells me the exact same settings. I'm not sure why this would happen?
I'm trying to make a smart dos experience for my kids. I want them to use the console, CD around and start games. But each game, of course, has different configurations. So, I was loading the config parameters into a batch file before starting a particular game, so that its seamless.
