I'm trying to run DosBox through Ginge on my Caanoo, but receive what seems to be a command prompt.


The message is this:


${DIRGAME}


Using Wiz version .70.4 (or something similar), that message appears for a second and rests to the GP2X menu.


If I use the GP2X version of DosBox, the message stays on the screen and will not allow me to exit.


My files:


CrimeFighter.gpe


#! /bin/sh


DIRROOT=/mnt/sd/dosbox


DIRGAME=${DIRROOT}/CrimeFighter


${DIRROOT}/dosbox -conf ${DIRGAME}/dosbox.conf


exec /usr/gp2x/gp2xmenu


dosbox.conf


sdl]


# fulldouble -- Use double buffering.


# output -- Can only be Surface for the gp2x.


# sensitivity -- Mouse sensitivity.


# mapperfile -- File used to load/save the key/event mappings from.


fulldouble=false


output=surface


sensitivity=100


mapperfile=mapper.txt

fontcolor_frontsel=1

[dosbox]


# machine -- The type of machine tries to emulate:hercules,cga,tandy,pcjr,vga.


# memsize -- Amount of memory dosbox has in megabytes.


machine=vga


memsize=4


[render]


# frameskip -- How many frames DOSBox skips before drawing one.


# aspect -- Do aspect correction, if your output method doesn't support scaling this can slow things down!.


# scaler -- Scaler used to enlarge/enhance low resolution modes.


# Supported are none,normal2x,normal3x,advmame2x,advmame3x,hq2x,hq3x,


# 2xsai,super2xsai,supereagle,advinterp2x,advinterp3x,


# tv2x,tv3x,rgb2x,rgb3x,scan2x,scan3x.


# If forced is appended (like scaler=hq2x forced), the scaler will be used


# even if the result might not be desired.

aspect=false


scaler=none


[cpu]


# core -- CPU Core used in emulation: simple,normal,full.


# Try simple first as this is the fastest, then normal and last full


# cycles -- Amount of instructions dosbox tries to emulate each millisecond.


# Too low and the game will crash randomly / not start up


# Too high and expect slowness


# Just right and you will get a nice speed boost


# 600-1200 ish seems to be about the sweet spot for the things I've tested. (older games)


# cycleup -- Amount of cycles to increase/decrease with keycombo.


# cycledown Setting it lower than 100 will be a percentage.


core=dynamic


cycles=1000


[mixer]


# nosound -- Enable silent mode, sound is still emulated though.


# rate -- Mixer sample rate, setting any devices higher than this will


# probably lower their sound quality.

# but sound will also be more lagged.

# mixer -- Allow the soundblaster mixer to modify the dosbox mixer.


# oplmode -- Type of OPL emulation: auto,cms,opl2,dualopl2,opl3.


# On auto the mode is determined by sblaster type.


# All OPL modes are 'Adlib', except for CMS.


# oplrate -- Sample rate of OPL music emulation.


sbtype=none


sbbase=220

oplmode=auto

# gus -- Enable the Gravis Ultrasound emulation.

# Gravis Ultrasound. (Same IRQ's and DMA's are OK.)

# with Timidity should work fine.

I realize that the Caanoo has a different keyset, but that shouldn't stop it from running. After configuring the three required files, I managed to find a sample zip file with everything preconfigured, but that did not work either.


I'm trying to run CrimeFighter, Oregon Trail and Wasteland (mostly CrimeFighter).

Not the right thread for the pandora but anyway. I tested Wasteland on DosBox 0.74 and it works fine ^_^
