Replacing DOSBox with DOSBox LFN: Still getting error messages.

Recommended Posts

Hi, I heard that you could replace the version of DOSBox included with Launchbox with a different version supporting long filenames (LFN). I've copy-pasted the files from the LFN version over to Launchbox's DOSBox folder and tried loading a DOS game within Launchbox. However, i'm still getting that error message about "limitation(s) with DOSBox's command line usage" due to an apostrophe being in the filepath (it's one of my top-level folders, so changing the name of the folder isn't possible without screwing up a lot of other programs).

Is there any way to disable this error message and force Launchbox to load the game in DOSBox LFN?

PS: For the record, i've tried using Retroarch as a replacement, simply running the games as "roms". This works fine for some games, like Tyrian 2000, but it doesn't work for any games that require additional files/discs to be mounted, like Ultimate Body Blows.
