    Recording audio from dosbox

    Is there a way I could record the music from a game that is being played in dosbox?

    Yes,

    From the dosbox readme (type man dosbox)

    CTRL-F6 Start/Stop recording sound output to a wave file.

    CTRL-ALT-F7 Start/Stop recording of OPL commands.

    CTRL-ALT-F8 Start/Stop the recording of raw MIDI commands.

    Make sure to define a location for the captures to go to (here is mine in my dosbox.conf)

    [dosbox]
    # language -- Select another language file.
    # memsize -- Amount of memory dosbox has in megabytes.
    # machine -- The type of machine tries to emulate:hercules,cga,tandy,pcjr,vga.
    # captures -- Directory where things like wave,midi,screenshot get captured.

    language=
    machine=vga
    captures=/home/yourusername/whateverfolder
    memsize=16


    It will store screencaps, audio rips etc there.

    Re: Recording audio from dosbox

    How do I edit this dosbox.conf?

    I went to places>search for files, and searched for dosbox.conf and it didn't find it (it returned immediately though, doesn't seem like it looked for it).

    solved:

    $ cd ~/.dosbox/
