    Hi,
    I'm new to the codex, been lurking for abit. You guys have inspired me to go back to the classics. I have recently picked up copies of Dark Sun 1/2, and Ravenloft 1 and 2. I have no idea how to use dosbox though, I read the intro but I'm not much of a computer person and don't understand mounting and what not. Could someone explain or link me to a guide on how to use dosbox for retards? I read that you can use dosbos to even increase game resolution or something? I'm running vista home premium if that helps.



    Thanks

    Dosbox is easy to use:

    1.install dosbox
    2.install game (i.e to dir d:\games\darksun )
    3.start dosbox
    4.in dosbox type:

    mount c d:\games (you set dir d:\games as drive c)
    c:
    cd darksun
    darksun

    While ingame you can slow down and speed up the game with function buttons (not sure if it was f9/f10 or f11/f12). Read the dosbox .conf file for more options.

    BTW.

    I recommend using the Dosbox interface without using frontends. After some time it gets more natural and comfortable, and you can mount things by making an autoexec.bat.
