Thanks alot Codeholio for making DOSBox-x. After using 0.82.4 for long time I decided too try the newest version. I then discovered that the Drive option was missing from the menu bar. Actually it's been missing since 0.82.7 2018-06-01 13:05.
Why did you removed that feature? I use it for one game that's on six CD images. I hope it's a minor bug that you're willing too fix soon. I've tested both the 32 and the 64-bit Windows versions. In the meantime I'll just use 0.82.6 😀
I'm using Windows 10 64-bit.
That happened when I replaced the Windows menu resource inherited from Daum's branch, with the menu framework. I didn't bother to recreate the drive list because I didn't see any demand for it.
I'll keep your request in mind. I think it would be helpful to be able to mount and change floppies and CDs at runtime too.
The biggest challenge obviously is to write common code that can show a "select file" interface across all platforms.
Windows obviously has the "GetOpenFileName" function, but I'm not yet familiar with Mac OS X for it's version of the same, and using one from a toolkit like GTK would require linking to a whole GUI toolkit in Linux, so it's probably going to have a custom drawn file select dialog for platforms other than Windows and Mac OS X.
