Yep, our whole little conversation has been deleted. I checked back, and to provide you with some information: this was indeed done to keep the topic clean. The .mgc topics are intended only for discussion on the layout itself, not for general Q&A regarding free or paid versions of Magic Dosbox.
I’ll try to move your post and mine here to a new topic, but wanted to reply first in case I mess up. Don’t want another post to disappear without further notice. ?
To answer your last question: the free version allows to test the basic layout features, while more advanced functions are full version exclusive. So if the layout contains some of these, you’ll have to trust in the people reporting how well it’s working. I can assure you
it’s worth the money. ?
