    Great, I appreciate your work on this a lot! This is the first time that dosbox on Android has become usable for me for games other than those easily controlled by Mouse only.

    Some other things I thought about, but those are really minor issues:

    1. Sometimes my widgets get rotated. I think this sometimes happen when I place them first in auto/rotate orientation and then switch to landscape. But I can’t reproduce this in a consistent manner, so it is hard to describe more exactly and I do not have an example at hand. But this includes the text running top to bottom instead of left to right. Maybe an option to reset widget orientation would be nice, maybe there is already one and I just have not found it yet.

    2. The changing layers action seems like it should be available under the “Special” widget and not only under the “Combo” widget. This is just a bit counterintuitive to me, as I looked for it there first. Of course it is fine to also have it under Combo.

    3. Walkthrough having support for .txt, .pdf and images would be nice. I.e. I use it to show the copy protection answers for Master of Orion, and I had to create a html page to display the image I have them on. And many of my existing walkthroughs for older games are in .pdf or .txt.

    Just a general wishlist, but I probably already love the App as much as possible 🙂

    Sorry, I only have Screen Shots right now, due to bandwidth.


    The widget in the bottom right can not be moved any more the right, either by drag&drop or by using the movement arrows. If you look at the following screenshot, the area it can’t be moved into is exactly the same area where the navigation bar appears when extending it or where it is all the time when not using full-screen mode.


    It is probably a lack of support for true fullscreen, then. It is not that big of a deal as with most games you can use just have the dosbox windows to the right and controls to the left. Only if you need to use several widgets at same time it is more convenient to have them to the right and to the left.

    Edit: seems like the images are not working. Here are the links:
