This is the main discussion thread for the most recent version of DOSXBox.

Use this thread to do any of the following:

Ask a question about DOSXBox
Report a bug about DOSXBox
Submit a feature request for DOSXBox

Do not use this thread to post about projects other than DOSXBox.
Do not post questions/bug reports/feature requests without first reading the FAQs for DOSXBox.
Do not ask where these projects can be downloaded.

Rule violators will get one warning. After that, you will be temporarily or permanently banned depending on the situation. I'm sorry if that sounds harsh, but it has taken me a cumulatively long time to write the FAQs for these projects. If you cannot do me the courtesy of taking the time to read them, then I do not want you posting here.

This thread will be pruned/cleaned periodically. If you had a question in this thread and it is now gone, then it was either in violation of the rules or your answer can now be found in the FAQs section.

DOSXBox 286/386 PC Emulator port for XBox v6

http://xport.xbox-scene.com

http://dosbox.sourceforge.net


What's New :

- Every file gets a unique configuration regardless of whether or not
the filename is unique. This fixes the configuration problems where
different games have the same executable filename (e.g. play.exe ).
This also fixes the screenshot filenames.

- Added configuration option to enable VSync. This should fix the screen
tearing but performance will suffer with it enabled.

- Added ability to map the following keyboard keys:
+ Num Lock
+ Scroll Lock
+ PrintScreen
+ Pause/Break

- Added ability to use light gun as a mouse pointer

Thankies for the VSync option happy.gif

One other thing though, would it be possible to speed up the mouse controls when using the analogue stick? Games like Wolfenstein 3D and X-Wing use the mouse for analogue movement but it's way too slow ATM.

Adjust mouse sensitivity in configuration options.

Great work, just the additions I was hoping smile.gif I don't know what kind of twisted person makes Scroll lock a mandatory key, but unfortunately that kind of a twisted individual also made a great game like Tankkk...

But a couple of guestions about the new configuration files. Does Dosxbox v6 "automatically import" configurations made with v5, or is there a GUI option to do so? Or can this be done manually by copying/renaming/cut&pasting files (haven't tried it yet, so I don't new mechanism)? I spent some time specifying the mappings for a few games and would hate get them destroyed in the update.

Cheers,

Cheers,

It will first search for the old configuration filename and if it finds it, it will copy it over to the new filename. The old configuration is then deleted.

Let's say you have two games launched by the filename SIERRA.EXE and they are both configured the same way. The first time you load up the first SIERRA.EXE, it will copy over the old configuration and delete it. After this, if you load up the second SIERRA.EXE, it will not be able to find any configuration files and will default to whatever the current configuration is (which is the configuration of the last game you loaded.)

This is an easy way to copy one game configuration to another, if the need arises. Load up SOURCEGAME and then exit back to the game selection menu. Then highlight DESTGAME on the game selection menu and press the BLACK button to delete all configuration files for DESTGAME. Then press A and it should bring you to the game configuration screen where you should see that the settings are the same as SOURCEGAME. The keymappings will all be the same as SOURCEGAME as well.

I have a problem with V6: it only runs games that have a config file from V5. If I copy a new game to the harddrive, V6 can't execute it. I have delete all game configs but didn't work until I used V5.

Any idea?

What do you mean by "can't execute it"? Describe exactly what is happening and what game you are trying to run.

..nnnNnNNnnnNN!!!..

So have you actually run Xwing on DosXBox, Likklebaer? That's the one game I really really want!!

If you wouldn't mind, can you tell me which version you're running, and any special measures you had to take to get it to install? I've got the Xwing Collector's Edition CD, but I couldn't get it to install at all with DosXBox V3. I'm not sure whether it was a problem with the old version of DosXbox, or whether my Xwing CD is just plain incompatible with DOSBOX. It won't install on Windows 2000 either - I get an error saying something like "the program is trying to directly access the harddrive". Well duh! It's trying to install the game!

I'll get the latest version of DosXbox at the weekend!

Yes, with a little tweaking both X-Wing and TIE-Fighter run quite nicely.

However, I haven't had to install from CD. The files I'm using come from an installation I did on an old PC years ago and it wasn't from Collector's Edition disc. So I'm afraid I really don't know what to suggest.

I'm pretty sure I know what you're trying to say now. It's not that v6 cannot run the games, it's that it no longer automatically sets up the autoexec.bat lines for you (which you can edit manually on the game configuration screen.)

This is fixed and will be out in the near future.
