Re: Blood & Magic

I think this variable may just be specific my 1640, but variables are a very real thing in DOS. At the dos prompt type "set" without the quotes. This will display all your variables. I had one in my configuration that set the display variable to a value depending on the value of an error level retur...

Re: Blood & Magic

Yes, I find the same thing, that virtualbox runs things better in some ways, but also throws up problems of its own. I think in VM environments, you do need more than one emulator to get all your old software working. I spent ages trying to get old DOS games running under VBox, but realised DOSBOX d...

Re: Blood & Magic

Just playing around with the Amstrad 1640 on PCem and found very similar screens trying to run GEM. This is turning out to be the video display mode the machine sets it self to using error levels to set the "display" variable in autoexec.bat.

I would have a look down this route if I were you.

I would start by taking out all that qemm stuff & stick with dos memmaker.
It could be a video driver problem, I get a very similar screen when I start win 10 in virtualbox ( host win7 ), but not with any other versions of windows!
How much base memory do you have?
What is nc.exe?

Mouse in GEM for Amstrad 1512

Has anyone know how to get the mouse working in DR DosPlus GEM for the 1512? I can move the pointer with the up/down left/right keys, but no key will select an option.

I have found a bunch of ROMs at 86Box, they seem to be working. Will try your links next. Many many thanks for your help, I could not have sorted this out without you.

Re: Amstrad 1512 HD Version

Thanks for the quick reply

Is this a software emulator, if so where can it be obtained?

"MFM fixed adapter" sounds like hardware device though.
