HX DOS Extender (Emulation)

posted by DOSGuy(R) Homepage, 26.09.2011, 03:03

I'm glad you've had some success using real DOS. DOSBox can boot a real copy of DOS, but I was hoping I wouldn't have to. I picked my programs carefully, picking programs with low system requirements that don't use DirectX, and ideally use only one window. As I mentioned, some of the programs that aren't working for me are listed as working at http://www.unet.univie.ac.at/~a0503736/php/drdoswiki/index.php?n=Main.HX-DOS-lists

Just in case it helps, here are the error messages from a small sample of the programs that I've tried:

ScummVM v1.3.1

Used to boot into a monochrome GUI, the mouse pointer would be jump back to the center as I moved it around, and it would freeze after a few seconds.

Now I'm getting "WARNING: Could not find theme 'scummmodern' falling back to builtin!"

A text-based mouse cursor is available, but the program is otherwise frozen.
