Default The "Get DOSBox 0.73" drive

Quote:
DOSBox 0.73 has been released!

Most noticeable changes:
  • Support for more graphics modes and cards.
  • Improved Vista support.
  • New OPL emulation cores.
  • Sound fixes and improvements for Mac OS X.
  • Lots of compatibility fixes.
  • Lots of cdrom detection improvements.
  • Lots of memory (EMS/XMS) improvements.
  • Various fixes and enhancements for the recompiling core.
  • Support for evdev.
  • Lots of DOS fixes.
  • Slightly faster!
  • More stable.
You can check the full changes here.
Today, DOSBox 0.73 has finally been released and it comes with tons of improvements and can be downloaded HERE.

Please update to this version of DOSBOx if you're still using an older version. It will make the life of all of us who help visitors run old games, a lot easier.

If you find that DOSBox 0.73 no longer runs a game or is causing new problems (although this is unlikely to happen), please post them here. We can then contact the DOSBox team to fix it.

Weird. I'm getting slightly different music in Supaplex. I have played Supaplex on real DOS and never heard anything like this. But it sounds better than with 0.72 (or DOS) so no complaints here.

I'm still having problems with Dark Legions.

Hmm... No dosbox.conf anywhere to be found?

EDIT: Nevermind. Just copied the DOSBox 0.72 conf file into the 0.73 folder. Works like a charm.

Autoexec FTW. \o/

There is, in a user profile folder that doesn't need admin rights to write in. And now the version number is included in the filename, "dosbox-0.73.conf"

It was about time DOSBox installed by default could be used without admin rights. I just wonder why they chose to store the profile in %localappdata& instead of %appdata%?
