Am running dndbbs v5.0a and main dndbbs.exe is 256K but the chained modules are 256-320K and results an Out of Memory during Chain.

How can I release more RAM to dndbbs to avoid this problem? I am using DOSbox-SVN-Daum. Thanks.

Daum is not supported. you better try it on a floppy booted in regular dosbox. This might exactly be a problem with share not being really available (unless you boot a disk in Dosbox)

I am not interested into discussing what is currently supported or not supported. I use the Daum derivative for 2 good reasons:

1)DOSbox v.74 does not support share.
2)vdos/vdosplus does not support modems.

However Daum does support both.

My question still stands: How do I allocate more conventional RAM to Daum?

Thanks.

And we are not interested in supporting Daum here. I gave you an option to try. If you need more help with Daum try emailing Yhkwong, the guy who did Daum.
Thread closed as we aren't interested in helping with unsupported software here.
