Star FAQ [v0.2.c]

Type INTRO in DOSBox for a quick tour. It is essential that you get familiar with the idea of mounting, DOSBox does not automatically make any drive (or a part of it) accessible to the emulation. See the FAQ entry "How to start" as well as the description of the MOUNT command (section 4: "Internal Programs"). If you have your game on a cdrom you may try this guide: =8933

In the DOSBox configuration file is an [autoexec] section. The commands present there are run when DOSBox starts, so you can use this section for the mounting. Look at Section 13: The configuration (options) file

Lower the priority setting in the DOSBox configuration file, for example set "priority=normal,normal". You might also want to try lowering the cycles (use a fixed cycle amount to start with, like cycles=10000).

Runs the specified command before running "name". Multiple commands can be specified. Each command should start with "-c" though. A command can be: an Internal Program, a DOS command or an executable on a mounted drive.

Switches DOSBox to a more secure mode. In this mode the internal commands MOUNT, IMGMOUNT and BOOT won't work. It's not possible either to create a new configfile or languagefile in this mode. (Warning: you can only undo this mode by restarting DOSBox.)

Boot will start floppy images or hard disk images independent of the operating system emulation offered by DOSBox. This will allow you to play booter floppies or boot other operating systems inside DOSBox. If the target emulated system is PCjr (machine=pcjr) the boot command can be used to load PCjr cartridges (.jrc).

IPXNET STARTSERVER starts an IPX tunneling server on this DOSBox session. By default, the server will accept connections on UDP port 213, though this can be changed. Once the server is started, DOSBox will automatically start a client connection to the IPX tunneling server.

You start the DOSBox mapper either with CTRL-F1 (see section 5. Special Keys) or -startmapper (see Section 3. Command Line Parameters). You are presented with a virtual keyboard and a virtual joystick.

If you change the default mapping, you can save your changes by clicking on "Save". DOSBox will save the mapping to a location specified in the configuration file (the mapperfile= entry). At startup, DOSBox will load your mapperfile, if it is present in the DOSBox configuration file.

You can force the slow or fast behavior by setting a fixed amount of cycles in the DOSBox's configuration file. If you for example set cycles=10000, then DOSBox window will display a line "Cpu Speed: fixed 10000 cycles" at the top. In this mode you can reduce the amount of cycles even more by hitting CTRL-F11 (you can go as low as you want) or raise it by hitting CTRL-F12 as much as you want, but you will be limited by the power of one core of your computer's CPU. You can see how much free time your real CPU's cores have by looking at the Task Manager in Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 and the System Monitor in Windows 95/98/ME. Once 100% of the power of your computer's real CPU's one core is used, there is no further way to speed up DOSBox (it will actually start to slow down), unless you reduce the load generated by the non-CPU parts of DOSBox. DOSBox can use only one core of your CPU, so If you have for example a CPU with 4 cores, DOSBox will not be able to use the power of three other cores.

(Windows) Status Window is being started together with main DOSBox window. (Linux) You may have to start DOSBox from a console to see Status Window. (MAC OS X) Right click on, choose "Show Package Contents"->enter "Contents"->enter "MacOS"->run "DOSBox"

The file is divided into several sections. Each section starts with a [section name] line. The settings are the property=value lines where value can be altered to customize DOSBox. # and % indicate comment-lines.

An extra configuration file can be generated by CONFIG.COM, which can be found on the internal DOSBox Z: drive when you start up DOSBox.
