Setting up DOSBox!
This is how my DOSBox
Here is what you'll need :
DOSBox-Staging (0.76.0 is
Text editor (Notepad,
Nortan Commander (Optional)
Installed copies of your
DOS games obviously!
STEP 1 - Download & Extraction
First off you need to create a
folder. It can be any name or anywhere (It can be your C drive, your desktop,
other hard drives, etc) but this will be the folder we'll be putting DOSBox-Staging
Afterwards, Download DOSBox-Staging and extract it to your new folder.
2 - Configuration
After you have DOSBox-Staging
extracted, run "dosbox.exe" and when it sends you to the "DOS prompt", type in
the following :
This will create the file "dosbox.conf"
that will be needed for editing in this tutorial.
Now create a new folder named (without quotes) "drivec" and then open up
dosbox.conf in Notepad (or other text editor)
Now scroll all the way down to to the bottom where you see [autoexec] and type
the following :
mount c drivec
Now save the file and you should
be all set. Now you'll need to throw in your installed DOS games (It can be the
GOG games too) in the drivec folder and run them that way!
Installing Nortan Commander (Optional)

files and folders a bit more easier especially for those who are not experienced
Download Nortan Commander and extract the NC folder to the drivec folder.
