Hi again. Thank you for a very quick response.
I will see if I can put together a presentation of my MGC and post it. How do I post files and images on this board? Do I need to host them somewhere? Can I use Dropbox or Google drive?
For now I just copy the content of the config files here, sorry for another long post. Hope this is what you need.
The command line on the icon in Windows is:
“E:\GOG Games\Might and Magic 4-5\DOSBOX\DOSBox.exe” -conf “..\dosboxMM4-5.conf” -conf “..\dosboxMM4-5_singleCD.conf” -noconsole -c exit
The content of dosboxMM4-5_singleCD.conf is:
# Lines in this section will be run at startup.
mount C “..”
imgmount d “..\game1.inst” “..\game2.inst” -t iso
The content of dosboxMM4-5.conf is:
# Lines starting with a # are commentlines.
# They are used to (briefly) document the effect of each option.
# fullscreen — Start dosbox directly in fullscreen.
# fulldouble — Use double buffering in fullscreen.
# fullresolution — What resolution to use for fullscreen: original or fixed size (e.g. 1024×768).
# windowresolution — Scale the window to this size IF the output device supports hardware scaling.
# output — What to use for output: surface,overlay,opengl,openglnb,ddraw.
# autolock — Mouse will automatically lock, if you click on the screen.
# sensitiviy — Mouse sensitivity.
# waitonerror — Wait before closing the console if dosbox has an error.
# priority — Priority levels for dosbox: lowest,lower,normal,higher,highest,pause (when not focussed).
# Second entry behind the comma is for when dosbox is not focused/minimized.
# mapperfile — File used to load/save the key/event mappings from.
# usescancodes — Avoid usage of symkeys, might not work on all operating systems.
# language — Select another language file.
# memsize — Amount of memory DOSBox has in megabytes.
# machine — The type of machine tries to emulate:hercules,cga,tandy,pcjr,vga.
# captures — Directory where things like wave,midi,screenshot get captured.
# frameskip — How many frames DOSBox skips before drawing one.
# aspect — Do aspect correction, if your output method doesn’t support scaling this can slow things down!.
# scaler — Scaler used to enlarge/enhance low resolution modes.
# Supported are none,normal2x,normal3x,advmame2x,advmame3x,hq2x,hq3x,
# If forced is appended (like scaler=hq2x forced), the scaler will be used
# even if the result might not be desired.
# core — CPU Core used in emulation: normal,simple,dynamic,auto.
# auto switches from normal to dynamic if appropriate.
# cycles — Amount of instructions DOSBox tries to emulate each millisecond.
# Setting this value too high results in sound dropouts and lags.
# You can also let DOSBox guess the correct value by setting it to max.
# The default setting (auto) switches to max if appropriate.
# cycleup — Amount of cycles to increase/decrease with keycombo.
# cycledown Setting it lower than 100 will be a percentage.
# nosound — Enable silent mode, sound is still emulated though.
# rate — Mixer sample rate, setting any devices higher than this will
# probably lower their sound quality.
# blocksize — Mixer block size, larger blocks might help sound stuttering
# but sound will also be more lagged.
# prebuffer — How many milliseconds of data to keep on top of the blocksize.
# mpu401 — Type of MPU-401 to emulate: none, uart or intelligent.
# device — Device that will receive the MIDI data from MPU-401.
# This can be default,alsa,oss,win32,coreaudio,none.
# config — Special configuration options for the device. In Windows put
# the id of the device you want to use. See README for details.
# sbtype — Type of sblaster to emulate:none,sb1,sb2,sbpro1,sbpro2,sb16.
# sbbase,irq,dma,hdma — The IO/IRQ/DMA/High DMA address of the soundblaster.
# mixer — Allow the soundblaster mixer to modify the DOSBox mixer.
# oplmode — Type of OPL emulation: auto,cms,opl2,dualopl2,opl3.
# On auto the mode is determined by sblaster type.
# All OPL modes are ‘Adlib’, except for CMS.
# oplrate — Sample rate of OPL music emulation.
# gus — Enable the Gravis Ultrasound emulation.
# gusbase,irq1,irq2,dma1,dma2 — The IO/IRQ/DMA addresses of the
# Gravis Ultrasound. (Same IRQ’s and DMA’s are OK.)
# gusrate — Sample rate of Ultrasound emulation.
# ultradir — Path to Ultrasound directory. In this directory
# there should be a MIDI directory that contains
# the patch files for GUS playback. Patch sets used
# with Timidity should work fine.
# pcspeaker — Enable PC-Speaker emulation.
# pcrate — Sample rate of the PC-Speaker sound generation.
# tandy — Enable Tandy Sound System emulation (off,on,auto).
# For auto Tandysound emulation is present only if machine is set to tandy.
# tandyrate — Sample rate of the Tandy 3-Voice generation.
# disney — Enable Disney Sound Source emulation. Covox Voice Master and Speech Thing compatible.
# joysticktype — Type of joystick to emulate: auto (default), none,
# 2axis (supports two joysticks,
# 4axis (supports one joystick, first joystick used),
# 4axis_2 (supports one joystick, second joystick used),
# fcs (Thrustmaster), ch (CH Flightstick).
# none disables joystick emulation.
# auto chooses emulation depending on real joystick(s).
# timed — enable timed intervals for axis. (false is old style behaviour).
# autofire — continuously fires as long as you keep the button pressed.
# swap34 — swap the 3rd and the 4th axis. can be useful for certain joysticks.
# buttonwrap — enable button wrapping at the number of emulated buttons.
# serial1-4 — set type of device connected to com port.
# Can be disabled, dummy, modem, nullmodem, directserial.
# Additional parameters must be in the same line in the form of
# parameter:value. Parameter for all types is irq.
# for directserial: realport (required), rxdelay (optional).
# for modem: listenport (optional).
# for nullmodem: server, rxdelay, txdelay, telnet, usedtr,
# transparent, port, inhsocket (all optional).
# Example: serial1=modem listenport:5000
# xms — Enable XMS support.
# ems — Enable EMS support.
# umb — Enable UMB support.
# keyboardlayout — Language code of the keyboard layout (or none).
