Hi there :)

Anyone can lead me to a n00b guide to use these patch with dosbox ?
Is it possible to add this kind of patch via a dosbox frontend ?

Thanks !

You will need to apply the patch to the source and compile dosbox

Look at the dosbox wiki on how to compile Dosbox. Follow that and once you get that working ask again - in a new thread please.
When you encounter problems concerning compilation, please use the search and then start a new thread about this.

The pinhack patch breaks with (exactly) svn rev 3996 (1 pixel wide screen in Pinball Fantasies). I'll see if I can fix it.

It is only a configuration issue, but this lets me continue to use the suggested setting pinhackexpandwidth=0.

Code: Select all

+++ b/src/dosbox.cpp

Finally! I managed to patch my own version, compile it and it works now! (Version 7.4)

Although I am IT professional, being a Windows guy I am really not used to compile stuff my on my own and this proved to be really difficult for me.

As I would have liked to find this exe somewhere but could not, I think I can at least provide my version now.

Use at your own risk :)

Here is my config file

Code: Select all
[sdl]
# fullscreen -- Start dosbox directly in fullscreen.
# fulldouble -- Use double buffering in fullscreen.
# fullresolution -- What resolution to use for fullscreen: original or fixed size (e.g. 1024x768).
# windowresolution -- Scale the window to this size IF the output device supports hardware scaling.
# output -- What to use for output: surface,overlay,opengl,openglnb,openglhq,ddraw,direct3d.
# autolock -- Mouse will automatically lock, if you click on the screen.
# sensitiviy -- Mouse sensitivity.
# waitonerror -- Wait before closing the console if dosbox has an error.
# priority -- Priority levels for dosbox: lowest,lower,normal,higher,highest,pause (when not focussed).
#             Second entry behind the comma is for when dosbox is not focused/minimized.
# mapperfile -- File used to load/save the key/event mappings from.
# pixelshader -- Pixelshader program to use for resizing: none,point.fx,bilinear.fx,scale2x.fx,2xsai.fx,
#                2xSaI_sRGB.fx,Cartoon.fx,GS2x.fx,GS4x.fx,GS4xColor.fx,GS4xColorFilter.fx,GS4xColorScale.fx,
#                GS4xFilter.fx,GS4xScale.fx,Matrix.fx,MCGreen.fx,MCOrange.fx,scale2x_ps14.fx,Sketch.fx.
# usescancodes -- Avoid usage of symkeys, might not work on all operating systems.
# overscan -- Width of overscan border.


[pinhack]
#              pinhack: Boolean: Enable pinball hacks to display whole table at once. Not enabled per default.
#  pinhacktriggerwidth: The X resolution (width) the pinball hack should trigger at. It is not checked by default or if set to 0. Can be a range.
# pinhacktriggerheight: The Y resolution (height) the pinball hack should trigger at. Default is 350 (good for Pinball Fantasies). Can be a range.
#   pinhackexpandwidth: The X resolution (width) DOSBox will expand to if pinball hack is enabled and triggers.
#                       Not very useful probably, but provided here in case someone finds a game where it is useful!
#  pinhackexpandheight: The Y resolution (height) DOSBox will expand to if pinball hack is enabled and triggers.
#            pinhackpd: Boolean: Enable pinball dreams to work correctly during intros. Default:false
#                       
#        pinhackpsycho: Boolean: Psycho Pinball tilt craphics are messed up if hack enabled. TODO, this is a placeholder and has no function currently.
#   pinhackdoublewidth: Used to enable forcing (or disabling) doublewidth with pinhack. The original patch disabled it,
#                       but you may find it better enabled, or left to decide by dosbox and use aspect ratio correction insread.
#                       normal=do not touch the setting, let DOSBox decide. yes=doublewidth. no=no doublewidth

Re: Pinball Fantasies no-scroll patch for dosbox 0.65

Postby zoldalma » 2018-11-02 @ 20:58

Hello,
thank you all for this patch, after some adjustment I have managed to apply it to current SVN build and get it working (under Linux).

For Epic Pinball, use a trigger height of 240 and the expanded height as 420.
For Absolute Pinball, values are 400 and 720 (note: this also makes the DOS prompt look weird)
For Extreme Pinball, this patch is unfortunately not good, game will still try to scroll.

Re: Pinball Fantasies no-scroll patch for dosbox 0.65

I changed the patch a bit, using the earlier suggestion to check the executable name. All games mentioned in this thread are now included, seems to work so far, luckily "pinball.exe" is only used by Pinball Fantasy. (Epic Pinball also uses this .exe name, but when the actual table loads, the executable name is already different). If there is interest, I will clean it up a bit and post.

Some other random observations:
- Pinball Dreams 2 needs a trigger height of 240, I haven'f found a higher resolution version
- if you have a monitor that can be rotated to portrait position, the display will be really neat - Psycho will use most of the screen in, say,1080x1920
- ...but the fullscreen portrait mode is a bit weird in my vanilla SVN build, right part of the screen is not visible (this is not patch related, visible already in DOS prompt)
- so I did a build based on duganchen's fork, which solves this problem, and enables to use pixel shaders, but breaks some games (like Pinball Dreams)
