PPA description

Daily build of dosbox trunk

It contains the following patches:
1. sergm mt32 patch. It will ask for the rom location on install.
2. gulikoza version of the > 2 gb image patch (for windows 95 games).
3. the last iteration of kekko glide emulation (not wrapper) patch.

Glide emulation is extremely resource intensive, and is only really usable with the hardware output. I also recommend getting familiar with the voodoo env variables - at least to remove the splash screen.

The Glide patch is also in maintenance mode and some features were never completed. For instance, if you use it, you can't toggle fullscreen at will, only before the dll/ovl is started, or from a conf file.

As usual, install dosbox:i386 for use of the 32 bits dynamic core if you want max speed even in the amd64 architecture if you have multiarch.

The ppa also contains additional packages 'dosboxmount' and 'copy-on-write-drive' that have scripts for mounting a writeable overlay for read-only directories and showing a list of ready to play dosbox conf files from scanning that filesystem for those files.

copy-on-write-drive is suitable for playing games from read-only filesystems, such as a squashfs mount or a blueray or dvd disc. It prevents the original install directory from being modified if used on a writable game dir. It does not have to be used with dosbox, or even for games (I also use it for retroarch cores that use writable game files).

Don't ask for support on the dosbox forums; you won't get it.
