For the record, Retro Wifi SI modem has such a feature. It allows you to map up to 10 7-digit "phone numbers" to network addresses. DosBox HAL9000 build has something like this as well (Re: Direct serial port working).

Is there a reason you don't just use nullmodem?

Null-modem is more cumbersome to use as you have to constantly change serial1 parameter back and forth while with modem you just set it once and enter the address when starting the game.

Hi, i think a feature dosbox need to have is support for super resolutions, since most if not all new intel graphic cards cant do low clocks, and dosbox is not usable in this gfx cards

a post about this is here
Is there any version of dosbox that supports super resolutions (2560x240,etc)?

That isn't true at all, just use a resolution other than "original".

give me a example please, i will check

For example dosbox in a intel gma 950, x3100, x4500 or HD, ati 3xxx, nvidia cards

I think DosBox could use some kind of "phonebook" feature that would essentially map fake phone numbers to addresses. This would help games where input field does not allow non-numeric symbols and/or is too small for IP address.

I have now set up the build environment for DosBox, I think I can write this feature myself. Does DosBox repo accept community contributions often?

@Nicknine
I am really interested in this phonebook feature because the one set up by HAL9000 has been eliminated as he suggests in the following post: Phonebook problem
I am trying to play 688 Attack Sub on multiplayer mode and the nullmodem feature does not work. I have a complete proper post on it. This phonebook feature could be the only fix considering the game only accepts max 11 digits phone numbers.
If you are able to write it would you then be able to share it some way?
