Problems with Dosbox

Post by Syllypryde » Fri Aug 10, 2018 11:18

I do have the latest version of Dosbox 0.74. I have been having issues with it. When it comes time to play Keen and I switch to full screen, it crashes. I have tried to adjust my screen, display and resolution settings, but nothing seems to work.

Which operating system are you using?
How do you trigger the fullscreen mode?
Have you already checked the DOSBox FAQ section?

I have Windows 7-64 bit. I use Alt-Enter to switch to full screen. I did not check the FAQ yet. I will now.

Indeed the DOSBox README has a FAQ. There's also this page: https://www.dosbox.com/wiki/DOSBox_FAQ

If your problem is still not resolved, try deleting dosbox-0.74.conf and then letting DOSBox v0.74 create a new one. If there are still issues left, try changing the 'output' and 'fullresolution' settings. (My preference is output=opengl and fullresolution=desktop, but maybe output=ddraw or overlay will work better, at least on Windows.)

Also see if there are updates available for your graphics driver.
