Found! I was uploading the file to a location that wasn't the one the program was reading.  ;D

Hi all!

I just today released the first public alpha version 0.01 of zerox86. zerox86 is a PC emulator for the Game Consoles Worldwide (GCW) Zero handheld game console. Its purpose is to allow you to run old DOS games on your GCW0. It is based on the DSx86 PC emulator for Nintendo DS game console.

This is still an early alpha version, so a lot of DOS games will still fail to run correctly. It is also still missing various features (like for example mouse support), but I will improve it in future versions.

See http://zerox86.patrickaalto.com/ for download links and information. Be sure to read my blog posts at http://zerox86.patrickaalto.com/zblog.html for information about the current status of zerox86.



Thank you for your interest in my emulators!

it is saying

could not find '/usr/local/home/.zerox86/zerox86.ini'!
could not find '/usr/local/home/zerox86.ini
c:/ Mounted from /usr/local/home
4dos EMS swapping initialized (240K)

and then I have the flashing C:> flashing command prompt. 

How do I resolve this?  I have looked through my GCW-ZERO and I am not seeing a .zerox folder listed.  So I made a new directory and called it .zerox86 and it still displays the same thing as above.

I am not seeing this USR folder is that just the root folder?  The file path it is looking for the .ini file in does not seem to exist.   I installed the OPK for zerox86 and it is installed.

What am I missing here?

If I go to my root or base folder all I see is

apps
Home
Media

in that order.

Just enter into home folder (the one you see) and look for a .zerox86 folder or create it if missing. Verify a .ini file exists inside this hidden folder.

ok so that is working now.  I had typod it.  I got this emulator to load properly now. 

However how do I load games?

If I hit the B button I get the file list and I have unzipped the file for commander keen.  it displays in the list. 

if I hit start it reads

c:>"ckeen1"\

I hit start and then it reads

c:."ckeen1"\
invalid path "ckeen1"\

So how do I get the game to load?

I know I have to point it to the directory but how?  I did not grow up on dos, only used it fleetingly as a 3 to 7 year old kid.   

how can I make it point to the folder and run the game?

I have a folder ckeen 1 in my apps folder of the directories. 

See the error above. 

How do I get a game to run?

or can someone point me to a forum where I can find that information?

Dongo to get into a folder just type "cd ckeen1" for example, to get out "cd.." to run a game inside the folder AFTER you get in the folder just type the name of the exe file "keen4e". The game sometimes is either game.exe or game.com or game.bat. You just type the name and ENTER.

In zerox86 you see the available folders with A and choose with START.
In example press A to see the folder "games" and press START to go into the folder. Press A again to choose a folder:

ckeen1
ckeen2
ckeen4

Choose with UP or DOWN and START to open the folder "ckeen4"
Then again A to see the executable files:

help.exe
install.exe
keen4e.exe

Apparently keen4e is the game so choose and press START.

So

I have hit A

I see then in the list zerox dos or ckeen 1

I tried selecting both and this is whay happened.

I hit A
highlight Zerox Dos and press start
The commmand line then reads C:>"zerox dos"\
I hit start
then I get invalid path "zerox dos"\

then

C:\>

So I hit A
I see now C:\>"zerox dos"\
I hit start again
I have more options
I select \ckeen 1 and hit start
I hit A again
now I have the exact same options as before

And if I hit start I get the invalid path message from above.

Am I maybe not saving the files correctly?  They need to be unzipped and just in a folder on my SD card or internal storage correct?  I dont seem to be getting the other files you are mentioning.  I am not seeing anything to run it or keen4e.exe nothing like those options you mentioned at all. 

It does not seem to be opening the folders in the directory.

If I do

cd ckeen 1 get the same invalid path error.
