Where is the config file for the dosbox core?


#1

i tried playing duke nukem 3d using dosbox on the latest nightly build ,and it goes quite slow,so i’d liek to amp up the cycles,but i need to modify the dosbox.conf file.where does retroarch stores it on android?


#2

anyone? :\


#3

You can change the cycles in core options directly.


#4

found it,but the settings are all “coarse,coarse,fine or finer”,which doesn’t really help much.standard (pc) dosbox works in away that the more cycles you put,the more (usually)fast the emulation goes.here,whatever i try to increase,it actually makes the emulation slower :\


#5

Increasing the cycle rate doesn’t make it faster, it makes it emulate a faster system. It should work, but don’t use the highest setting, just use the coarse setting, setting cycles too high will result int dosbox taking too long to return a frame causing slowdown.

This core really needs a lot of love, I added some stuff like those options and joystick support but it still needs a lot of work.

I use 20000 cycles for tyrian on my system and it works fine.

heh yeah i’d like it to receive some love :stuck_out_tongue: so 20000 cycles means 20000 in coarse or coarser?

i tried only heretic so far and its a bit slow with the core setting i used so far


#7

coarse, 20000 means 20000, coarser is 100000, 200000, etc


#8

so just coarse 20000 should be enough?(thus setting everything else to 0?)


#9

They add up, so it is coarser + coarse + fine + finer


#10

ok but how much do i have to increase to the other ones more or less?


#11

…anyone? :\


#12

It depends on your game and your device…

Trial and error


#13

I forget which setting it is exactly. But it maxes out at 9000. Thats the only setting i play with in the core options and it works well to speed things up. I think it set it at around 5000 for most games.


#14

anybody can tell me where i can find the dosbox-SVN.conf? i try to raise the memory size


#15

where do you find the dosbox.conf on a firetv stick? it must be hidden somewhere. can i create a now path to my own .conf?
