Hi, I haven't used this forum very much in years, but every now and then come in to check on it. I'm very impressed with the new look. I've been using forums a lot more lately, maybe I'll start using this one more often too. Back in 2010, I created a thread for attaching DOSBox-compatible ports of * …

No shift key on Archive.org DOSBox?

Hi, I recently noticed that, only on Firefox and only on certain keyboards, the Shift key does not work in Archive.org's DOSBox games. Does anyone else have this problem or know what to do about it? Also, is it possible to paste keys into Archive.org DOSBox? Example: https://archive.org/details/ …
