  1. Version 2.0


    Native Launcher for MS-DOS LaunchBox for MS-DOS 2.0 is here! If you run MS-DOS (or the DOS console in Windows 95/98), this should be very much enjoyed. It allows you to easily sort through and manage your games/apps within DOS, without taking any extra memory from your apps or introducing any compatibility issues at all. This is done via a simple batch file that starts up and shuts down the launcher as needed. LaunchBox for MS-DOS also works very well with DOSBox if you'd like to use a menu system inside of DOSBox. System Requirements MS-DOS 3.30 or higher 286 or higher CPU (uses 286 CPU instructions) Installation Unzip the zip file and place the contents onto a floppy disk or other media. Copy the four files into a folder on your hard disk (or just keep it on the floppy, it runs from the floppy as well). Navigate to the folder with the files and run LAUNCH.BAT. LAUNCH.BAT can also be called from your AUTOEXEC.BAT file if you'd like LaunchBox to start on boot. You can then add Windows 3.1 or 95/98 to LaunchBox in order to optionally start up Windows by just browsing for WIN.COM. Change Log Version 2.0 - Released Sunday, January 29, 2018 - Many new fields are available for each item: Genre, Series, Developer, Publisher, Release Year, Status, and Favorite - Can now sort items by Title, Favorite, Release Date, and Status - Can now filter items by Genre, Series, Developer, Publisher, Release Year, or Status - LaunchBox now remembers your last selection - List titles and counts have been added Version 1.1 - Released Tuesday, January 17, 2017 - New "Move to Top" and "Move to Bottom" options are available under the Edit menu - New "Insert Separator" option available under the Edit menu - Each application can now have a separate set of commands for configuring the application - New explicit "Run Selected" and "Configure Selected" options are available under the File menu - New "Browse and Run" option is available under the File menu - New "Lock" option is available under the File menu to help prevent accidental changes - Changed the batch file process to better support DOSBox and older versions of MS-DOS Version 1.0 - Released Friday, January 13, 2017 - Initial Release Easter Eggs There are several incredibly stupid easter eggs in the program. Hint: What is the second most popular cheat code ever? Version 1.0 Announcement Video Screenshots
  2. Fallout MS-DOS Install Too Large

    Hello LaunchBox Community, I am having a problem with the installation of an MS-DOS game called Fallout into LaunchBox. The problem, from what I can tell, is due to DosBox's emulated C: drive not having enough space to install the largest install of the game. It appears that the default disk space is around 260mb where the largest install for the game is around 645mb. I know there are ways to fix this by using DosBox manually, however I could not find a way to expand the disk space while using DosBox through LaunchBox. I have attached a screenshot of the DOS installer showing the "No Drives Available" error when the "HUMONGOUS INSTALLATION" is selected. Any help or advice is be appreciated. Thank You
  3. Can't Start My Games

    Hey all, new to LaunchBox here, looking forward to playing all my old PC games. I have the CD's and all, and the installations seem to be going okay, but when I try to play the games (the CD is in the drive), Dosbox initially pops up and then... nothing. What gives? How do I go about troubleshooting this? Running Windows 10, on a fairly powerful PC, nothing super extreme. The game I have been trying is Rollercoaster Tycoon 2, also tried Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. Thanks in advance. Totally lost noob here.
  4. MS-DOS or Windows GameDB entry

    So I have a game on Steam that appears to be a re-release of a MS-DOS game, not a remaster or remake but the same game. I'm trying to decide if I should force the match to the MS-DOS version or create a Windows entry in the DB. Is the game considered an MS-DOS game still or should it be considered a different version and thus require its own entry in the windows platform like PS4/Xbox versions are.
  5. Hi, I am having trouble adding some DOS games to Launchbox from eXoDOS 2.0, a downloadable collection of DOS games. First, I downloaded eXoDOS 2.0. The games come zipped, so I unzipped a few or my favorites and placed them in a folder. I opened LaunchBox, clicked Tools > Import > MS-DOS Games. This opened the Import MS-DOS Games Wizard. I added the folder with the games I unzipped. I clicked Next, then Use the files in their current location. LaunchBox parsed the files and said the games are ready to import. But two of the games are not listed and do not import. These are: Star Wars - Rebel Assault II - The Hidden Empire (1995) Whale's Voyage (1993) I do not see an option in the Import Wizard to add the missing games. Below I am adding screenshots of the Wizard so you can see Whale's Voyage and Star Wars - Rebel Assault II - The Hidden Empire (1995) are missing. I am also adding images of the files in the unzipped folders for Star Wars and Whale's Voyage. I think the cause may be that the files are not in .exe or .bat format like the other games that imported. Is there a way to import the missing games through the Wizard or individually? Thanks.
