I've just done a quick test... I've tried adding "pc98" to the machine switches using the "dynamic settings", but couldn't get it to work. Having DOSBox-X boot from the floppy images is easy, I used the PC Booter option in the Mounting section. If anything, DBGL could recognise the extensions used by PC-98 emulators, such as FDD, FDI or D88.

Hi Roland, thanks for the response and you are certainly welcome to link to the PPA from the DBGL website. Both DBGL and DOSBox in that PPA are published for Ubuntu Xenial (16.04), Bionic (18.04) and Disco (19.04) at this point, so that should cover a lot of Ubuntu users. Please do let me know if you have any suggestions about the packaging, as and when you have time to check out the PPA yourself.

I like to have my DOSBox installation boot to a game menu by default. The only problem is if I set my config file, then it messes up my game shortcuts. Is there a way to get the game configs to override the DOSBox autoexec for just the game shortcuts...?
