Re: "Its impossible to start the graphics modality"

in DOS
Thanks for the help. I would be about to start wrangling with MS-DOS and an RS232 interface otherwise... Am proper kicking myself for not trying harder with your suggestion in the first place... but I never did find out how to change the keyboard layout. 😉

Re: "Its impossible to start the graphics modality"

Since DOSBox is open source, people are able to take the source code and develop their own version of it under a different name - modifying features as they see fit. That's called a fork, and DOSBox-X is one such fork of DOSBox. In their own words: while the main focus of DOSBox is for running DOS …

Re: "Its impossible to start the graphics modality"

Try using the FIX8x14 VGA font utility, as it enables 8x16 text fonts, as almost all modern cards have thrown them away / castrated them. All 9th and 10th gen i core processor onboard graphics chips don't even support VGA-register graphics modes at all, so nothing under 640x480 will even work. …

Thanks, but I fell at the first hurdle: how …

Re: "Its impossible to start the graphics modality"

The problem is that SETUP.EXE can not find the graphics driver since it is in the FILE directory. After extracting the rar file you should copy the BGI driver and CHR files also to the directory where SETUP.EXE is. Then SETUP.EXE starts without problem. lcsa1.png Well that worked, insofar as setup …

Re: "Its impossible to start the graphics modality"

I just gave it a go on my 386 (DOS 6.22). Is that actual MSDOS? When I tried to run Setup, it wanted to read the disk drive... Ah yes, sorry I forgot to mention that. I worked around it using SUBST A: C:\ This time I got a (healthy looking) graphical install screen, selected English, and when it …
