Windows 10 + DOSBox.

Post by Tawmis » Mon Jun 01, 2015 11:27 am

Windows 10 just became available (for free) for anyone with Windows 7 or Windows 8.

Has anyone gotten it and tested it with DOSBox?

I don't see why it wouldn't work. If there is any trouble I would imagine that it would be with SDL.

I haven't had any reports so far that it didn't work (in those technology preview releases)

Ok. Was there ever an issue with Windows 8?

I thought I heard some issues? Maybe it's just my dislike of Windows 8?

But can you believe - Windows 10 working with DOSBox is a requirement for me?

Yeah. I take my Sierra games (and other old DOS games seriously!)

The only problem I have heard of on Win8 is from the lack of traditional input devices on a Windows pad device, but I have not paid much attention to that since I do not have such a device.
