Thank you both for your replies! Going to menue for switching cycles all the time is very tedious. I would need ingame buttons to do that. A widget that can set cycles or cycle up/down and that can be placed like other buttons. That would be awesome.
Strg F11 etc. doesnt seem to work in dosboxmagic for changing cycles. Also for some reason my expert settings are ignored and the game starts with the usual settings even if i check the box next to expert commands. 🙁
