Hi everyone again,

This time I came with a question. I experience difficulties with mounting a cdrom image in DOSBox for GCW0 (all paths are correct and it all works under FreeBSD 10, Windows 7, Mac OS 10.9).

Here is how I'm mounting:

mount c /media/home/DOS

Success!

imgmount d /media/home/DOS/nfs/nfs.iso -t cdrom

Fails with "The image must be on a host or local drive." error.

Btw. it's not that image cannot be found, if I change the path to unexisting one it returns another error (something like "image couldn't be found"). And I tried /media/data/local/home instead of /media/home too, no luck.

Any ideas? Thanks

Not sure, because the DOSBOX manual seems to disagree with the official DOSBOX wiki as to what can be passed to "-t":

I'd try it one of three other ways:
imgmount d /media/home/DOS/nfs/nfs.iso -t iso

or

imgmount d /media/home/DOS/nfs/nfs.iso -t cdrom -fs iso

or

imgmount d /media/home/DOS/nfs/nfs.iso -t iso -fs iso

Lemme know which one works, if you have any luck.

Try changing the bolded section above to iso, so the whole line should now read:
imgmount d /media/home/DOS/nfs/nfs.iso -t iso

Thanks for suggestion, I tried it, got same error unfortunately.

Not sure, maybe try it this way:
imgmount d /media/home/DOS/nfs/nfs.iso -t cdrom -fs iso

This one returns same error too

Tried both imgmount d /media/home/DOS/nfs/nfs.iso -t cdrom -fs iso and imgmount d /media/home/DOS/nfs/nfs.iso -t iso -fs iso

OK, try this one:
imgmount d c:\nfs\nfs.iso -t iso

If that doesn't work, I'm not sure what it could be..

It was related to permissions, iso's owner wasn't root, the owner was user 501 because GCW doesn't have the user that owned it on my laptop. Anyways chown root:root solved it. DOSBox's error wasn't clear enough however for me to check the files ownership at first.
Thanks for help though.

I've been reading the docs but I cannot find any way to redefine keys or to create a controls config per game. Many games don't allow key remapping so this problem makes them useless. Any idea? For instance, E-motion works and sounds perfectly, but cannot be controlled.

Apart from this, does anyone know how to have Soundblaster sound in Risky Woods? I only hear the music, but the sounds are produced by the PC speaker.

Hello everyone!
Yesterday I tried to play in USM2...
It is impossible.. I think 320x240 is too little for this game.
All fonts are very blur... I can't read anything...
Can anybody test it on own Zero?

It's already at max. I found that out as I was trying to get better performance with Daggerfall.

That's dissappointing if true, since 1830 runs pretty slow and it's not the most demanding game around   :(

I've been trying to get some more games to work on the GCW Zero but I'm running into some problems.

I've been trying to get Heroes of Might and Magic 2 to work. I have the GOG version so I just copied it and put it into a folder. The game boots up and runs well, but it tells me it cannot find the CD. How can I fix that?
