Now I have added the ability to turn LFN on and off to the DOSBox LFN version. There is now a directive or command called "lfn" in dosbox.conf (see the [dos] section), which can be set to either true, false, or auto. When setting to "auto", LFN support will be enabled if and only if the major DOS version is set to at least 7 in the configuration file. It will now also use the actual Windows SFNs instead of generating random SFNs by itself on Windows platforms (the latter approach is used by the original or official version of DOSBox).

Download link for the binary (along with all required DLLs, zipped):

Enjoy it!
