Alt + Enter works for fullscreen here.

Great. Thanks!
Is there any way to start in fullscreen mode?

Also running without X boosts the performance a bit, and it's in fullscreen by default.

hm - tested it: performance boost is not significant, and there are additional key mapping issues without X. So I'll rather use it under X.
However, my impression is that performance is indeed a bit better than the with jeana's package.  And no libGL dependency anymore. Although the binary size is almost identical to the stripped version of jeana.
But why did you put the dosbox icon into the Games menu? :-)

Can you try my package?
http://z.drun.net/packages/dosbox_0.65.0.2_armv5tel.ipk
I saw you have 3200 - this package should squeeze the most performance out of the newest zauruses

It has mine mapper.txt configured as much keys I was able to add, it's in /usr/share/dosbox/ , 'dosbox' command is actually wrapper that uses dosbox.conf and mapper.txt in the mentioned directory. And it should not have much dependencies (except some sdl- packages from the feed)

Good package.
however, Jeana's mapper.txt was better. Yours lacks the ":", or at least I couldn't find it yet.  

Thanks Jeana and kazakov!

Another idea:
What about using an additional keymapping program within DOS in order to solve the problems with the Dosbox keymapper mapping only entire keys of the US keyboard instead of  the single key meanings?

Does anyone know keymapper programs for DOS which could solve that problem?
ANSI.SYS could do it I think, but I don't know how.

I doubt jeana's have ":" I just checked - it does not have it.

However, I'm trying to get it running, also I'm having problems with capital letters, even with shift, they seems to not shift. Perhaps my "shift" is broken ...


P.P. my package starts by default in fullscreen (when started from the icon). normally you can call dosbox -fullscreen.

It's in "games" because this is where the original dosbox from the feed resided ...

I've fixed it. Somehow left shift key is not know as left shift key but as "unknown" key.

now you can press : by using Shift+Fn + G ( that's ";" shifted ).

capital letters work too.

package updated (filename is the same):
http://z.drun.net/packages/dosbox_0.65.0.2_armv5tel.ipk

Hi kkazakov,

tried the new package with new mapper.txt.
I even saw the differences to the old mapper.txt (key_lshift "key 304" is probably the relevant mod), but here I still have no ":" and no capital letters! Any idea why?

With Jeana's mapper.txt I have the ":", but ONLY if I press the keys in the correct order:

First Shift, then Fn, then G.
If I pres Fn-Shift-G, no ":".

Can't the key mapping be adapter to the Zaurus in the sources? Then we didn't have to fiddle with these issues at all...

Might be possible to build in. Maybe it will take some effort more than with keymapper.



I don't know why it doesn't work with my mapper file. Works here great. Any errors in console?

Can you post diff from mine to Jeana's mapper.txt ? that works for you.

you can hack the source file bios_key something to have the mapping compiled into the binary. i did that on sharp rom version of dosbox. strangely, most keys were correct there and i only had o hack the : key in, but on pdaXrom, the entire keyboard is wrong without remapping the keys....

Thanks for your package! It runs faster than any package I've tried! However, I still get the same pointer misalignment issue.

I installed Windows 3.1 and it does start up correctly. But whenever I move the pointer at the screen (black arrow), the pointer in Windows (white arrow) moves oddly. Any possibility to fix it?

Hey Fatty!

Is your nick a tribute to the Zaurus legend that is Menaie? The one they call (adopts thick Scottish accent) Meestah Meanie?

Maybe we'll be able to get together a 7 dwarves (or should that be GNOMES?) of OESF? I think there is a girl somewhere on these forums sometimes so she could play Snow White  

EDIT

Before anyone gets pedantic, yes there were no dwarves called Fatty or Menay but there was a grumpy which is near as dammit Meanie for me!

Antikx can play witch as he enjoys dressing like girls  

Just jesting Mr Montana!  

Change it to warlock and I'm in!

Maybe we should add a new 'playground' section where we act out childrens stories whilst doubling up as a discussion area for DOSbox and running wince on a Z?

The prince on the white horse came riding by ...

With a usb-mouse it (almost) works.
Windows uses another mouse acceleration than x-windows on my Z. If I move at a constant low speed, the two pointers follow each other, when going to fast, the windows pointer accelerates and there is a gap between the pointers. A bit of math and a fast move in the correct direction brings them together again.

Howto (for ZDevil) :
- create a dedicated dir to use for dosbox (this will be your "C:\"). I created "/mnt/ide2/mydos"
- in a subdir, copy all files from your old windows installation disks (/mnt/ide2/mydos/winstall)
- start dosbox using "dosbox /mnt/ide2/mydos"

(it says /mnt/ide2/mydos is mounted as c:\)
in dos :
cd winstall
setup

After setup has finished :
cd ..
cd windows
win

Questions:
How can we make it snappier ?
I played with "cycles" and noticed that "9000" makes it better for me than "15000".
Anything else I can change ? Where are the real dosbox dwarves ?
