Re: xroar-snap-2019-49969

Right! Sorry for not replying to this sooner... Looks like some interaction with the "-type" command needs some thought. The config file reading changes mean you can use double or single quotes and escape characters with backslash. At the moment the "-type" command also interprets some of those cha...

Re: xroar-snap-2019-49969

@Ciaran Hi, I kind of solved it that way: -type RUN\"KING.BIN\n\" instead of using the old way I was used to: -type RUN"KING.BIN\n" So, no problems again. Thanks alot pere In fact, while modifying the bats that call some games in my setup, I have found that the ending double quote is not needed ind...

Re: xroar-snap-2019-49969

Latest snapshot works around this by picking the first UI if specified one doesn't exist (any more). Hello Ciaran, now I can leave that -ui windows32 But with this last snapshot the bat files that load a virtual disk and then use the syntax: -RUN"FILENAME.BIN" fail showing in the emulated Dragon wi...

Hi Ciaran,

in the config file
Thanks a lot

Re: Autoboot for floppydisk

Hello, if you want a disk to autoboot, that is autostart a program, then you need to use a DOS that offers this feature else you will need to issue the command BOOT instead. Right now I just remember the Eurohard DOS4.1 having that feature Next step will be saving the program you want to be autostar...

Re: xroar-snap-2019-49969

well, it has been easier than I expected.
The config file offending line contains this text:

ui windows32

Looking at the XRoar manual I can find there this
-ui windows32

But this fails too when added to the config file. But it didn't create any problem with older versions ...

Re: xroar-snap-2019-49969

Hello,
a great step forward ...
I have created a new folder with the xroar.exe but *NOT* with the xroar.conf ... and it works!!
So there is something inside my xroar.conf that is accepted by prior versions but not by the last ones.
I will keep making more tests tomorrow.
cheers
