  1. Hi, I've been setting up exodos games in LaunchBox via Rocketlauncher. When running a game directly from RocketLauncher, dosbox opens, launches the game in fullscreen, and the bezel displays correctly. When launching from Launchbox, the game launches, but it is hidden behind the game startup screen. I've tried the individual and combinations of startup override settings, but nothing works other than disabling the startup screen, which is a shame as that's a pretty cool feature. Looks like its some sort of window focus issue. Would be glad to try any other tweaks/settings if anyone has any ideas. I'm running Windows 10, Launchbox 9.2 Thx!
  2. So Gone Fishing has a CD and an installation folder. The file I run is: C:\Dos\AMTEX\GONEFISH\GFISHEXE.EXE The files from the CD are extracted to this location: C:\Dos\CDs\Gone_Fish I made a windows shortcut and this is the target "C:\Program Files (x86)\DOSBox-0.74\DOSBox.exe" -c "Mount d c:\dos\cds\GONE_FISH -t cdrom -label GONE_FISH" -c "amtex\gonefish\gfishexe.exe" When I run the short cut, the game works perfectly. But I cant figure out what settings I need in Launchbox to get it to run. Currently it just crashes after the initial DosBox copyright text comes up. I have tried setting up a mount with the letter D and type CD but that also doesnt work. Any help would be appreciated
  3. To the Point... decided the I would install windows 95 using dosbox for my games that won't run on windows 10 or dosbox, but how do I setup my shortcuts to go from: (In order.) icon / dosbox / windows 95 / game?

    Recess in Greece

    Hi guys! I've got a weird old game I'm tryin to run in Windows 10 "Recess in Greece" Won't run natively in Windows 10 or Dosbox so I'm THINKING I'm going to have to run Windows 3.1 in Dosbox and run it from that. Does that even make sense? Thanks! Here's a link to the game. http://www.museumofplay.org/online-collections/22/66/109.11681
  6. I've been having a few probs getting Rowan's 1994 flight sim Operation Overlord running... I can get the SVGA test to complete successfully but can't get the game to run with SVGA, also can't get the sound running either even after enabling it using the ? option on the main .exe file to configure the sound options. I'm sure I remember having this running fine in the dim and distant past but have lost that hard drive a long time ago so don't have anything to work from. EDIT: Also have tried using the ET4000 instead of the S3, I can get as far with both as SVGA on the ground but the game crashes when going to flight mode... it doesn't even load the cockpit. Still no sounds at any time, I'm wondering if anyone has managed to get Dawn Patrol to work as it's pretty much the same game, released in the same year. Anyone out there managed to get this game running in SVGA or even with sound?
  7. Is there any way I can do a mass edit and change the root folder of all of my DOS games at once? Launchbox defaults it to the specific games directory, which is incompatible with some games. I'd like to just do a mass edit and change them to my DOS root folder. There is no option in the mass editor, and I've tried to change them all in the MS-DOS.xml with Notepad++, but the changes don't reflect when I load LaunchBox again.
  8. So I have Windows 3.1 running in DOSBOX in Launchbox along with my other DOS/ScummVM games and I got a MAC game working (Math Blaster/Troggle Boggle) and I'm now trying to get Wishbone working. It keeps asking for a disk and I have no way to point it at my F:/ drive which is the Daemon Tools. My DOS C:/ drive is in Launchbox so I can't go up the tree to where my F:/ is
  9. Hi! I configured Xpadder with multiple emulators and Windows games but I'm not sure how to use different profiles for DOSBox games. I tried to use the feature "Additional apps" in Launchbox, which allows me to specify xpadder profile for each game. However, after I specify the profile explicitly it doesn't return back to autoprofile mode. I could have used game names for different profiles, but regardless of what game you're running in DOSBox, Windows only see DOSBox as an active process. I might add a batch file to shutdown xpadder after every game and reopen it, but I was curious if someone was aware of any better solution. Thanks.

    D-Fend Reloaded + Launchbox

    I have always been using D-Fend Reloaded before I discovered Launchbox. I really don't want to go through the process of installing all my games again. My questions is, there a way to launch my games through launchbox using d-fend as the emulator and the programs profiles to launch a game?
  11. Hi guys, I'm hoping someone can help. I have an old dos game (European Championship 1992) and when I try to play it in Launchbox the window appears and then closes almost immediately. When I run the same game in retroarch it plays absolutely fine. I either need to work out what I can do to get it running natively in Launchbox or how I can get one specific game to launch retroarch and then the game in retroarch automatically (presumably some command line). Please help. Thanks Chris

    fable 1996

    I have a old point and click game called Fable. From 1996 not new one made by Peter the fraud. Anyway I load game and it freezes in the first min. Anyone ever play this or have any ideas?? Thanks all
  13. After an "argument" in the launchbox discord, i did some googlefu and found out that dosbox daum has the option to mount zip files. @Zombeaver promptly tested if it worked properly and surprisingly it does So here is a guide on how to run zipped DOS-Games. Download DOSBOX Daum from http://ykhwong.x-y.net Unzip (DOSBOX Daum, not yourself) Make 2 folders in the unpacked dosbox named "Data" and "Games" Copy your Games in .ZIP format into the games folder Start dosbox and type: "mount c Data:Games\YOURGAME.ZIP:/" replace YOURGAME.ZIP with your zipped game name, i'll use LBA.zip (little big adventure) here: Start your game as usual: Success You'll have to keep your isos in a seperate folder if you have to mount them for games that need them (Daggerfall, Little Big Adventure, etc.) and there are probably a few other problems and glitches but so far it works pretty good.

    touch dosbox is it possible?

    I use my surface pro 4 all the time and its frustrating not being able to use touch in my old games. So wondering if it is even possible to code a way to have an overlay or some other method to get touch working with dosbox games (other emulations would be cool to). I read a while back about a possible method where someone had created a opengl or direct 3d or something like that, for dosbox and it was theoreticaly possible to get touch woking in that but when i tryed i couldnt get all the elements to work together. Another thought is it possible to turn the screen into a giant trackpad screen and moving mouse was simply dragging finger on screen? I love launchbox and really excited where its going. a great purchase in my opinion. p.s. if a touch interface is possible its the kind of thing i would pay good money for.
