Change configuration settings
We need to tweak some parameters for the game to work well.
These might depends of the game, and this is where things gets tricky. (for more infos, see the DOSBox help).
In this case, the Rayman by his fans game will not launch.
Rather than tweaking every DOSBox settings in the dosbox.conf file you just created, you may download the dosbox.conf file for RayFan that I use, and you’ll have to modify it just a bit
Unzip the file in your install folder, then open it in a text editor (eg right click -> open with… -> Notepad)
Locate the following lines :
[sdl] fullscreen=true fulldouble=false fullfixed=false fullresolution=640x480 output=ddraw
[cpu] core=dynamic cycles=30000
and at the bottom
[autoexec] MOUNT D D: -t cdrom -usecd 0 -ioctl MOUNT C "F:RayFan" ECHO ON C: rayfan.exe ver=fr exit
Change first :
Next under [autoexec] change :
MOUNT D D: -t cdrom -usecd 0 -ioct
D: is the cdrom drive letter, 0 is the drive number.
If you have more than one drive, drive 1 will be marked “0″, drive 2 “1″ etc…
MOUNT C "F:\RayFan"
F:\RayFan is the install path of your game. Then enter :
Here is the name of the executable used to launch the game. With Rayman by his fans, if you just enter “rayfan.exe” there will be an error message like “Launch RAYMAN.BAT”.
Look closely inside RAYMAN.BAT, I have a french version of the game so there is :
@echo off setsound ver=fr
replace ver=fr with what’s inside your own RAYMAN.BAT file.
Save dosbox.conf file, we’re almost there !
