Because it's the same code base under the same moniker? And if a setup file is required to avoid shipping a set of default settings on other platforms then why you you ship with a set of defaults? Seems like quite the contradiction to be making...
Not to mention, settings within the config that do the exact opposite of what they state they do and you having specifically stated elsewhere that config files from different versions of DOSBox are compatible.
So no, it's no my logic, but rather yours that's created this situation which you seem to be resorting to defend with hypocrisy.
No, there have been HUGE changes in the code base over the last decade of separate developments (even though there are also many communications between the projects). The project names are different, and they share part of the name to indicate the common history by the time the fork took place long time ago. In many cases a complete new setup is not required, but this is not guaranteed. Just think of them as separate projects with both many similarities and but also many many differences. And no, I never said that config files from DOSBox-X and DOSBox are compatible (in the sense they are fully interchangeably). Instead I only said config files from different versions of DOSBox-X are generally compatible, and mentioned that config files from DOSBox-X and DOSBox use roughly the same formats (and clearly, the mere fact that they use the same formats does not mean they are interchangeable; there are also many other software using config files with similar formats, but this does not make them compatible with each another).
Clearly you are the one who is making false claims and everyone else is disagreeing with you, both here and the issue tracker elsewhere.

There's no grudge. Just a developer that can't handle critisim and keeps running to defend his project after not being abe to understand that not every user is going to have the exact same experience. I mean all you have to do is look at the over a thousand issues reported on thier github to understand their project isn't as perfect as they would make it seem from their arguments.
No, and in fact it is the case that you have tried to argue with EVERYONE when everyone else disagrees with you, which happened both in the forum and elsewhere. The discussion of the Duke Nukem game sound in the DOSBox-X issue tracker is a very good example showing this. "Over a thousand issues reported on thier github"? You are so funny here. Issue trackers are not only for reporting bugs, but also for making suggestions, discussions for new features, and many more. No project is perfect of course, and reporting bugs are completely fine and even encouraged, but the problem is apparently your attribute. If you have a problem with the project then you are free to either report the bug you encountered or not use the software, instead of making arguments with everyone else. Moreover, it is fine to make cristism of something, but it is supposed to make sense too, or other people will also make opinions about it. And if everyone else does not agree with what you said, consider that it is probably your own fault instead of everyone else's.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many incoherent contradictions in a single block of text before. Congrats on the spindoctoring. No need to move the goals posts, we both know what you’ve stated before. At the end of the day your project is still called “DOSBOX”.
And just to set the record straight, you might want to look at HOW this discussion transpired. I made a request to another project, your project which I’ve had multiple negative experiences with, (see Terminator Skynet else where for a perfect example) was suggested instead. I explained that it wasn’t a good option and then you tried to jump down my throat just like every other time I’ve mentioned DOSBOX-x without overwhelming positive praise. Another issue that I didn't bother to bring up is why the hell any renderer outside of opengl breaks mouse movement? But apparently DOSBOX-x by virtue of having the "X" at the end should have completely different rendering behavior as well?......
So before you go on another rant as a biased developer, maybe look back on your past actions over the last while and understand where your user base is coming from.
Because of this, everything else you said is simply baseless. If you have any issues with the project, it is completely fine (I was not able to reproduce them any way, and indeed it turned out to be so difficult to even ask you for the config file you used); I don't need to hear "overwhelming positive praise" (which does not make too much sense any way), and in fact I asked you to stop using it and try a different emulator instead long time ago (in the issue tracker). But you continued to use it for some reason, and this was apparently your own choice. As a result, what you said is completely nonsense, not even worth refuting (but if you really want, we can look more at your past actions and see how you are a biased user).
