I hope that this is here the right place...i looked around and did not found a better place, but i have some problem with english boards 😀
To my Question.
I get a Disk with 3 Old Dosgames, Das Schwarze Auge - Nordlandtrilogie (The Dark Eye - Northland Trilogy, i translatet the name free 😀 )
The Newest Game is "The Dark Eye - Drakensang"
The oldgames comes with a technique to use the Dosbox0.72 that i've never seen before.
After the Inistallation each game places a shortcut to the desktop
"G:\Games\Das Schwarze Auge\Schicksalsklinge\Dosbox-0.72\dosbox.exe" -c "mount c 'G:\Games\Das Schwarze Auge\Schicksalsklinge\'" -c "c:" -c "SCHICK.BAT" -conf dosbox.conf -c "exit"
I Tryed to copy and Modify that move for other old games, so that i have only shortcuts left that starts the Game direktly in Unique Boxes...but it didn't work.
After a look in the Gamefolder i found another shortcut....and here it goes realy silly
"I:\Program Files\JoWood\Schicksalsklinge - Teil 1\Dosbox-0.72\dosbox.exe" -c "mount c 'i:\Program Files\JoWood\Schicksalsklinge - Teil 1'" -c "c:" -c "SCHICK.BAT" -conf dosbox.conf -c "exit"
the path "i:\Program Files\JoWood\Schicksalsklinge - Teil 1" is never defined in any configuartion data or in my system. Because the path is invalid, iam unable to copie and save it to another shortcut, or to modify it in a way that makes it usable for other games.
But, i understand that i need both shortcuts, the one on my Desktop and the one in the gamefolder...
If anyone could explain how these trick works and explain in an simple way to copy and modify it for other games i would be glad 😀
