You would have to exit via the game.
Often in PC games there is an option to "exit back to DOS". That would be the best way.

I have copied dosbox to usr/local/dosbox as recommended. However, when i go to add a link in gmenu if i select the local directory it drops me back to desktop. for some reason i cannot create any links from local. I moved dosbox to root and changed Dosbox.conf from usr/local/dosbox to usr/dosbox. This did not work either as the system did not recognize the change despite me saving the file. Please give a noob some help and tell me what i'm doing wrong LOL.

update: figured out how to manually create a link. I have dosbox installed in local. however, on my dingoo there is not  a usr directory, local is right on the root. so currently dosbox is installed on Local/dosbox. I changed the dosbox.conf to reflect this. this is the message i get:

z:\>mount c /local/dosbox/c_drive
Directory /local/dosbox/c_drive Doesn't exist

z:\>c:
Drive c does not exist
You must mount it first. Type intro or intro mount for more information

z:\>cd dosnav
you are still on drive z:, change to mounted drive with c:

Any help would be appreciated, thanks for looking :)

usr is the root of the sdcard in the dingoo.
So the right thing is to install it on local/dosbox (as you already did) and not change anything in dosbox.conf.
So if you just revert the dosbox.conf file to its original state, it will work.

I have reverted it to its original state and it does not work. I get the same message. All the other stuff I did was me tinkering around hoping i could figure it out without having to ask LOL. Anyhow, if i put dosbox in local, I cannot use the selector to make a link in gmenu, So i had to create my own link. If the link had usr in the front of it, it would not work. if i removed it it did work. Does dosbox have to be run from local? And does anyone have an idea why i would be locked out of accessing the local directory?

FIXED: after hours of trail and error I got it working. the follow is the syntax I had to use to get the program working on my dingoo:

For doxbox.conf

[autoexec]
mount C /usr/local/dosbox
C:
cd dosnav
DN.COM

I had to remove the c-drive and just use the dosbox directory itself as my c drive. It would not work any other way.

For manually creating my icon in gmenu

title=dosbox
exec=/media/mmcblk0p1/local/dosbox/dosbox.dge
icon=/media/mmcblk0p1/local/dosbox/dosbox.png

I could not use usr/local or it simply would not work. Why i cannot select the local directory via gmenu and why usr works in the autoexec but not when creating an icon is beyond me. But i have it working now. I hope this helps any others that might have a similar problem.

Hey there, I am using the GCW Zero and tried your workaround as I was having the exact same issue. Unfortunately, your workaround doesn't solve my problem. The log file states: /media/data/local/dosbox/dosbox.dge: can't load library 'libpng12.so.0'

Think you can help me out?

So it looks like to solve this I will need 0.74 recompiled using the GCW toolchain. Unfortunately I don't have a linux box :(

Joe, I apologize. I know nothing of the gcw and if its different than the a320 in regards to opendingux. The problem i was having I fixed through many hours of trial and error.  My system would not allow me to access the Dosbox directory and create an icon, and the method i has to use to mount was different then what the author suggested. I wish i could tell you more. All that i know, is on my a320, it worked.

I tried some games, results are not good (Dingoo a320, Opendingux, DosBox 0.74 v2):
Abuse - message about lack of memory.
Alien Rampage - same result.
Nectaris - not launching.
X-Com UD - freezed at Microprose logo.
Master of Orion - lags in opening intro, game started, but i can`t push any of interface buttons.
Battle Isle - game started, sluggish, absolutely frustrating controls (any action needs confirmation from special keys).
Battle Isle 2 - message about lack of memory.
Power Dolls - lags in opening intro, can't do anything on start screen (can`t push on Start Game not with virtual mouse or keyboard).
Knights of Xentar - can't do anything on start screen.
Is any Compatibility list for DosBox?

I wonder if DOS version of Dyna Blaster would go on this.
Has anyone tried so far?

May I consider that games requiring more than 2MB won't run in A320 DOSBOX (max memsize=2MB)? Can not get some games to work, for instance, Leisure Suit Larry 7.

very sorry for a late reply on this. opendingux has a scummvm port that runs games like leisure suit larry just fine. I have not had much luck with dosbox otherwise as the dingoo a320 is just very hardware limited and most dos games i have tried do not run or run very poorly.

thanks for replying. I already played LSL6 in ScummVM, but LSL7 is not supported.
