1280×720 (Galaxy Note 2 N7100):
– Double-tap Enter button (check mark) to emulate Esc key
– “Toggle UI” button hides/shows UI (e.g. for watching cut scenes or movies)29. October 2023 at 14:38 #10489
Hi, I know this post is pretty old, but I very like how the UI looks and I wanted to use it, but unfortunately when I try to start the imported profile, Magic Dosbox crashes. Is there any way to fix this issue? Help would be very appreciated29. October 2023 at 14:51 #10490
I don’t think it’s an actual crash, it’s simply the [autoexec] section in expert settings pointing to the wrong directory. Adjust the path after “mount c” to where your dos games are stored, and it should work.
You can delete the “exit” command, or comment it out with a #, so Dosbox won’t exit automatically. I just put it there for convenience, so I drop back to the main menu when I quit the game.29. October 2023 at 16:15 #10491
I did what you suggested, unfortuantely Magic Dosbox still exits when I try to launch the profile. I even tried to turn expert settings off and launch the game without them and the same thing happened29. October 2023 at 18:37 #10492
Ok, so I managed to make it work, but in a very hacky way
I made a new profile and configured it, and I also imported the old profile. Then I went to the MagicDosbox/Games/Data directory, and I copied the “Layouts” file and “Images” folder from your profile and pasted them into the one I’ve created. Then I launched my profile and after Magic Dosbox closed by itslef (like in your profile), I once again went to the /Data directory for my profile and I saw that a “Layouts_New” file was created. I then deleted the old “Layouts” file and renamed the “Layouts_New” file to just “Layouts”. Then I went back to Magic Dosbox and after I started my profile, everything worked and I was able to see the controls. I don’t really know why it worked, but hey, I’m not complaining
Thanks for trying to help me anyways, especially as this post is 8 years old. What a helpful community
Have a nice day sir!29. October 2023 at 18:57 #10493
Wtf 8 years!? 🤣🤣🤣
I wonder what the issue was. Maybe screen resolution or aspect ratio? I created that profile back then on a Galaxy Note 4, and have been using it on several other phones.
Weird, but glad you got it working. And after all, hacky solutions are usually the most fun. 😉30. October 2023 at 19:28 #10494adminKeymaster
Similar situation was reported, but I was unable to reproduce it, do you remember? Thrn I was completely out of time, so I could not finish the hunting:( seems likr big on some devices.
