Dosbox portablility

I'm trying to emulate windows 3x and the instructions require Dosbox (which I have through Launch-box) so I tried to download another Dosbox for the Win3x emulator but the download from this site wants to be installed. I don't like installing games because I like to have the convenience of being …

Proportional dosbox resolutions

Some of the games I play in DosBox don't need the full resolution of the screen my computer runs (1920x1080), I'm guessing this is because they were designed for computers with a CRT screen that is for the most part full screen. This makes me want to window DosBox so maybe I can have something like …

Re: Joystick calibration issues

I couldn't find the edit feature for my last post so I will just add to it. I experimented and changed "timed=no" to "timed=false" and I was able to get the CPU cycles to max so I now the joystick works and I have smooth game play. 1. I still don't know what they meant by "emulation core:normal" but …

Re: Joystick calibration issues

That kind of works, thank you. I checked those sources, I don't have any trouble calibrating my joystick to my computer (Windows 10), I also don't really have problems with dead zones as I know how to adjust them, but the link https://www.gog.com/forum/wing_commander_series/joystick_deadzone?pp= …

Joystick calibration issues

Some dos games have a Joystick calibration screen before they start. In this screen you usually need to move the joystick to the center, top left, and back to center. I have found dos games have trouble recognizing my Thrustmaster T-Flight Stick X, however I have found a program called "Antimicro" …

Can't get Earthsiege to recognize joystick

in DOS
I am trying to use a "thrustmaster, t flight stick X" joystick on my windows 10 computer while playing "MetalTech: Earthsiege" but the game won't recognize the joystick. It works on other programs, do I need to install something? Is my joystick too new for a game from 1994 to recognize? Also, not as …

Do I need multiple DosBox apps?

I am trying to get involved in other forms of emulation that require Dosbox. I already use Dosbox with a front-end program called Launchbox but it sounds like I also need Dosbox to emulate windows 3x games and mac games through Fusion PC 3.0. Can one Dosbox be used in multiple programs or do I need …

Re: Metaltech: Earthsiege intro problem?

I got it working, I switched and the video intro isn't slides, it's a complete animation. It gets a little chopping and isn't smooth so I tried changing this part of the dosbox configuration file core=auto cputype=auto cycles=auto cycleup=10 cycledown=20 to core=auto cputype=auto cycles=50000 …

Re: Metaltech: Earthsiege intro problem?

Once you're at the D: prompt type "dir". Gives you a directory listing. Type "intsall" to install the game to your mounted C: drive. I assume you mean "install" because that works, the game is installed. The game didn't install to a folder called es but to a folder called "sierra" and then another …

Re: Metaltech: Earthsiege intro problem?

OK, sorry about continuing a dead post, I assume since my post is at the top a new thread has already been created and you don't need me to do anything but start a new thread next time. I also assumed any link to an illegal site is bad, the sites I linked are the official site to the Earthsiege …

I got the game from some website and TribesUniverse and all versions seem to have just the slide intro while one copy …
