eXoDOS v5

It was time for a new thread since a new version was out. And since the last one got locked due to ridiculousness, here is a new thread for the current version.

For those with eXoDOS v5, an update is due out this month. Selecting the eXoDOS game (first in the list), right clicking, and choosing to run the updater will auto reach out and pull all of this in. A changelog is being maintained and will be posted when the update goes live.

In the mean time, enjoy.

Hi Exo!

First off thanks very much for all the hard work and hours you have put into this project, it is really amazing and keeps the memories fresh for me... you have done an outstanding job.

Regarding the update, I have tried to update a few times both on my laptop and also my desktop but I always get an "there is currently no internet connection" (or something like that) error.

I have tried to disable the antivirus and anti malware but still the same, is there somewhere and some way to download the update and apply it locally?

Thanks again, you are an absolute legend!

On the discord I had to post a new "update.bat" file, as the one that was packed in at release ended up having issues (even though it tested for me fine before release... ugh).

Please take the attached update.bat file (extract it) and overwrite the file in your .\eXo\Update\ folder

update.bat.zip

Hi Exo,

Thanks so much for this, I will give it a test when the kids go to bed tonight.

I wish Microsoft had someone like you working in support - they take 3 weeks to reply about a blue screen. ?

Keep up the awesome work you legend you!

Hi again Exo,

Your updated Batch file worked like a charm, spent the weekend playing Eye of the Beholder with ASE and drowning in memories - Thank again Kind Sir (you are right, Microsuck are not worthy of you anyway ?).

Sorry to be a pain in the arse but I have another question, is there a way to apply a shader (like XBRZ X 4 or HQ X 4) to all the titles from Launchbox, like  a pre-set? If you could point me in the right direction it would be awesome!

All the best and keep safe!

Shaders are somewhat dependent on the version of dosbox being used, and there is no version of dosbox that can universally play every game. That said, you would have to manually edit all the conf files if you wanted to set a shader for every game. I allow you to set shaders on a per game basis, but not a universal basis.

Just discovered eXoDOS in my journey to complete my Launchbox setup.  I have pretty much every single NA console and have just now started getting into Home Computer emulation.  I still need to get my Apple II, Amiga, C64, Amstrad, ScummVM, etc... stuff imported and DOS was on my list.  I feel like eXoDOS will pretty much cover all of my DOS needs.  Gonna grab some GOG packs for everything 9X.

A quick question - 

Which is the "correct" link to stay updated on the project - 
https://exodos.the-eye.us/
or
https://www.retro-exo.com/exodos.html

Are they related somehow?  Both are first page results for Google search.  Gonna join the Discord to stay in touch that way, too.  Thank you so much for your efforts!  This is really a great piece of work you've put together!

retro-exo.com is my site.

exodos.the-eye is a mirror provided by the-eye.

 

They should have the same links, however the-eye also keeps older sets around to. My site will always have the latest (and tends to have less downtime). However I only offer the torrent on my site, and they do offer wget. That is not a recommended way to go though.

Been a huge fan of this project when I stumbled across 3.0

happily running 5.0, but it states there is a 5.1 update found and will be downloaded.  Every time I try it eventually (!) complains about a network error.  I am happily browsing from this PC and have a decent enough Wifi connection/Lan speed.   it is timing out or is the update having issues?

Installed (running) on my ? drive (not C:) and everything else is working perfectly.
