Hey if you are finding the Dosbox interface to be annoying, try out the D-fend frontend program for it. with this program you can set up your games to run with dosbox with the click of a mouse button. you can set up profiles for individual games, as well as make templates for games that are similar. very cool.

I agree. I installed D-Fend for my nephews, so I had some opportunity to play around with it and I must say it's probably the best dosbox frontend available. I just wish it was also available for Linux (as I have no win), so far we only have dosboxfe, which is totally unusable, not to mention useless.

Just for the record. D-Fend IS easy to use, but it makes DosBox unstable. Some games gets #&%ed up, others won't play at all, and sometimes strange things happen... Like Dreadlord loosing her savegames.

Personally, I use the commands in DosBox. They aren't that hard to learn as Puffin's 9 year old sister can tell you. k:

I pretty much prefer DOSBox as is. No need for silly front end interfaces when it works so well.

Though, I suppose some people have their uses for it.

I've switched back to DosBox, after it permanently corrupted my game of Dungeon Master 2 (wherein I was right at the end :ranting: ).
