I installed dosbox 0.74 on my windows 10 Alienware aurora r5 desktop computer, mounted the same images, and modified the dosbox.conf file to match my parameters that I was using for magic dosbox. The game runs the same but I can race for a little while longer before it crashes. Oh and I had to change cputype to pentium_slow to get dosbox to work on windows.
Judging by the dosbox compatibility with need for speed 2 se, I definitely have some settings wrong. Or maybe missing drivers idk.
