Thread: DosBox cycles up/down

    DosBox cycles up/down

    Hi,

    I installed DosBox form terminal on Ubuntu Studio.

    It runs but I can't modify cycles nor frame skipping with the ctrl+Fn command.

    I can modify cycles from the .dosbox file script txt, but hard to manage games with it.

    Any idea how I could make this work?

    cheers

    Just a thought, create a startup script for each program?
    Code:
    dosbox -conf gameA.conf
    
    dosbox -conf gameB.conf
    
    dosbox -conf gameC.conf

    Ubuntu Studio ? I do believe this uses XFCE as its DE. Check that the window-Manager doesn't swallow up the key-combination. On my XUbuntu system ctrl-F11 was set to 'switch to workspace 11' and ctrl-F12 to 'switch to workspace 12' (who sets up 12 workspaces ? Honestly !). Removing those definitions from the window manager settings made the keys work in dosbox.
