Sorry for asking, but is it planed to add ne2000 support ?
I need it when i play games like screamer Rally, and connect a dosbox with a real old PC over network.
So far I had no plans for NE2000 support, because there was no demand so far.
And would i make things so unstable when its possible again to switch between glide=emu (build in patch) and glide=true for a wrapper (nglide) ?
External wrappers aren't supported in kekkos 3Dfx patch, because it wraps all Glide commands to OpenGL ones internally, while all external wrappers work with Direct3D, afaik.
Dosbox ECE seems to be a great Project, but is missing some "must haves".
"Must haves" tend to differ from user to user, so to satisfy all the individual needs, DOSBox would have to be a 100% perfect emulation of old MS DOS PCs, with loads of possibilities to choose between different hardware components, different driver sets, etc. Because that obviously is not possible (or at least a more than herculean effort), for DOSBox ECE I decided to focus on patches that improve graphics and sound, which are the features games mostly benefit from. Almost all of the other builds that support more features seem to be broken or not supported any more, because the more patches you add, the more prone to errors it becomes. So I prefer keeping it slick and working instead of blowing it up to the point where I can't keep up building or supporting it.
Btw.: I f you have some clue about C++ programming or at least know how to add patches and compile DOSBox yourself (not that difficult if you follow the guide in the wiki, which is basically what I do), you're free to try to add the patches you want yourself and see If you can get it working, I provide the source code of DOSBox ECE in my downloads as well.
Ah, btw: where can i find a plain dosbox.conf for ECE to see what commands and variables are supported ?
Press WIN+R on the desktop, enter %LOCALAPPDATA% and look in the DOSBox directory there, you should find a file dosbox-ECE.conf comtaining all options available.
