how to get 50 line Dos program window

Postby lapgv » 2019-9-28 @ 22:20

New to DosBox yesterday 9/28/2019, v0.74.3. All is well except I need a 50 line program window. Could do in Win98 and XP and Win7 XP mode with shortcut layout adjust. Help!

You can use the MODE program from MS-DOS or FreeDOS to switch to 50 lines. There is also the little 8x12_50 program here that gives 50 lines and uses the 8x12 raster font from older versions of Windows to create a similar appearance to console windows.

When trying exec windows/system32/MODE command I receive "this program cannot be run in dos mode" . Any idea?
How can I load only MODE command from FreeDOS to run?
thanks very much
