Can't seem to find CD image anymore

Recommended Posts

I enjoy this app immensely, but I recently encountered a problem.

I have been running Warcraft 2 in DOSbox before I installed Launchbox and there was never any problems playing from the ISO. I had the mount macros input into the options file:

mount c f:\Games\Emulation\DOSBox-0.74\Games\
mount e e:\ -t cdrom

and DOSbox would always find the CD-image.

Now, for some reason, Warcraft 2 can't seem to recognize the image anymore if I launch the game from Launchbox. However, if I go to my old DOSbox folder manually, it still works without any problems and the game plays off of the ISO just fine. If I launch the same game through Launchbox, the cd image is just not registered at all.

Then I saw that there was a different, alternate DOSbox folder within the Launchbox folder itself, and I was thinking that maybe Launchbox was using that one instead, so I figured there was simply no mount macro in the options file for that one. But (a little strangely, since I never copied it myself) there actually was! :o The exact same commands were listed in that options file as well. So even if it was using that DOSbox location, it still should have worked.

Any pointers?

Got it working on my own.. 

* Edit the details of the game in Launchbox
* Under the "Mounts" tab, make sure that the correct path and driveletters are being used; I was unaware of the fact that there was even a mount-option in LB, thought DOSbox took care of all of that through the config file, but clearly that was no longer the case.

I leave this revelation here for other people to discover.

Glad you got it sorted out. I saw this post and unfortunately was unable to help you with it at all since I really don't do much of the DOS based stuff at all.
