Connecting to IPXNET Servers faster using .BAT files!
Not only this makes connecting
to a server more faster, it doesn't lead you to alt-tab just to look at the IP
typing it down.
Here is what you'll need :
STEP 1 - Creating the .BAT file
First you go to the "drivec"
folder and create a text document.
You can either rename the .txt extension to the .bat extension or you can
re-save it to a .bat in Notepad.
Anyways, open the new file in notepad, and type in the following :
ipxnet connect 127.0.0.1
The "ipx true" part is only there
to make sure IPX is enabled because dosbox.conf has IPX disabled by default. The
IPXNET part doesn't have to exactly "127.0.0.1" as you can grab the server from
our Discord server and use that instead.
You can now save the file as a .BAT file (example : FRAGGLE.BAT) but make sure
to keep it short as you can only go up to 8 characters
(letters/numbers/symbols/etc) so keep that in mind.
2 - Running the .BAT file
Now that you have saved that file
as a batch file, run dosbox.exe and when at the "DOS Prompt" type the batch file
you just created and it should make a attempt to connect to the IPX server.
And this is how you make the batch files!
