Hello all. They are using dosbox to run an old application where I work. It works suprisingly well with just a few problems. One particularly frustrating problem is the numlock toggling itself off although the light stays on. You can toggle it on and off and then it will work. You input most of your data with the number pad and this has caused me more than a few errors. I tried both settings in the config file for "use scancodes" and all the settings for output VGA device.
This morning I played a bit and found that it seemed to toggle itself whenever you minimized the window (and, I think, on startup). I added "numlock=on" to the config file and I set the second priority setting (used when minimized) to "pause".
This *seemed* to fix things. I won't really know till I give it a day or three's worth of work. Having the thing pause while minimized will open up some new problems for me though.
We are using the latest dosbox with the mega-build.
Anyone have any more info on numlock problems?
