Np and cool 🙂 Also on GOG, there is a free strategy game being offered if you don’t already have it. Cheers
Heads up if you wanted to get the Dark Suns on GOG, they are having their usual large Summer Sale right now.
Three extra questions for win95 install.
1. Do we need to keep the win95 folder or can we delete that to free up space on the hdd? I tried to make the primary install on a 2gb img, but it wouldn’t launch. Only the 512mb img would. Not a big deal as I can add a 2gb img later.
2. How to remove the left click mouse widget permanently?
3. Can we have more than two 2gb img, so ie, it would be c: d: e: f: and so on other than the assigned drive for virtual clone.
Thanks in advance.
I really do appreciate all the support you have already give.
I discovered when trying to find an app that was supposed to give me full screen access in Dex Mode to hide the bottom bar, it somehow messed up my phone pretty bad. So, I am going to have to back up a few things and reset the phone.
But one really final question. I know that there is some type of back up you can make, what does that do exactly? Or how do I use the back up file? Does it put back in place the settings of the games I installed for Magic DosBox, or something else?
Okay, after a bit of time researching online, going through settings on the phone and even trying out an app that falsely states it had immersion mode, even shows it in the free version then suddenly is gone once you make the purchase, but fortunately Google refunded me, as I only spent less than an hour with the app.
What I discovered the problem to be: Running Dex Mode through the PC results in double cursor. I did not check this for other apps yet. I will later out of curiosity if it’s something global. However, I ran the phone through the usb-c port adapter in mirror mode, and it works fine. So, then I thought to run the same set up, and btw, this is phone to usb-c port directly to hdmi, not through the a computer. But when I ran Dex Mode straight to the monitor, I was able to scroll the wheel to a single cursor.
So essentially, running the phone to the computer to the screen running Dex Mode, will cause the double cursor effect.
This is great news, not only for Magic DosBox, but I also use Linux on my phone as well, and also was having cursor issues, but not as bad.
Ummm. I did scroll down with the wheel while in Dex Mode, but the way. I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 10 + and a Samsung Galaxy Tab A 2018. Dex Mode or maybe the app is bugged. I can use a 3rd party usb-c adapter to both devices and scroll the cursor away. Just only when I am Dex Mode I am unable. I just discovered that. I will do some more testing on my other monitor. This one I use as my primary, is Display port not HDMI. It is, but I have only a display port cable to this monitor.
Time for dinner, cheers.
You mean double pointer only in Dex? “Just to make sure, there was a type above” – you have to scroll the mouse wheel to hide the cursor, not press it.
I don’t follow what you mean. But when I scroll the wheel, it just brings up “general settings”, I am still unable to hide one of the cursors. I just keep having two pointers on the screen.
This is as far as I can put it into fullscreen, there still is a boarder between Dex and the app, I assume that is fullscreen mode? However, as you can see, I get double pointers.
I pressed, clicked, held down the mouse wheel, but its still the same, one small pointer, and one large pointer. I even switched to a wired mouse, as the one I am using is wireless.
I don’t have any mousing issues just using Magic DosBox on the phone, just in Dex Mode as far as I can tell.
Also, thank you for the link, that worked out perfectly for me. Now I will have plenty of space to fill with needless programs, lol.
Thank you, I did some reading last night and found the answer about the cursor in the documents 😀
My question now is, I used VM to make two 1gb .img’s one for the c drive, one for the d drive. I am using the preset found from the Youtube video but when I adjust the size of the c drive (-size 512,63,64,520)
imgmount c /storage/emulated/0/Win95.img -t hdd -fs fat -size 512,63,64,520
imgmount d /storage/emulated/0/Drivers.img -t hdd -fs fat -size 512,63,16,64
boot -l c
I get this error:
Can’t create drive from file.
Drive D is mounted as /storage/emulated/0/Drivers.img
Booting from drive C…
If I do not change anything from the original preset and using the 512 mb .img and run it, it begins to install Windows 95.
I would prefer having a larger hdd, at lest 2gb. However, trying to clone a 2 gb vhd, cmd does nothing for over an hour in one test. But I was able to make 2, 1 gb vhd to .img’s. Named, win95.img and Brain.img
So, I am not sure how I should be mounting them, if you could provide the command I can put in the expert mode, that would be very helpful.
Also, I am not sure if I am supposed to put both of the 1 gb vhd’s to .img’s files on the same command line or not?
Figured out this part…
Figured out this part
Hi, been following the tut on Youtube, on getting Win95 up and running on Magic Dosbox. I was stuck at the part when to convert the vhd to an img file.
Seems the process has changed some in the last 5 years.
1.If you use the latest version of Oracle VM, for some reason, you can not even install a virtual win95 vhd. You need to downgrade to at least version 5.2 and before June or July I believe, after that, they will drop support for it.
2. C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox>VBoxManage.exe “C:\Users\****\VirtualBox VMs\win95\win95.vhd” d:\test\win95img –format raw was the only way I could convert the vhd to an .img file. Maybe it has changed with Windows 10.
I managed to get it to work, but I have issues with the mouse not following ie in Dex Mode, the computer mouse trails far from the emulated mouse in win95, is there a way to fix this, or is this an artifact of using Dex Mode?
The zip file is Betrayal_at_Krondor.mgc.zip Unless I am not supposed to unzip it? But when I do, I get an Images folder of the buttons, an avatar of the game, a config.xml, exportinfo.xml, layouts.xml, and loopers.xml. I have tried a couple of times to dl it. I even used to the fix the download option.
Edit: I had to remove the .zip part, (duh).
This file and another layout file not in .mgc format rather multiple files. Is this an error or is there someway to use them like the .mgc formatted files?
