DOSBox 0.72 Released

by Dhruin, 2007-08-29 01:24:16

Thanks to stealth for writing in to point out a new version of DOSbox has been released:

This release fixes a few bugs that slipped through when releasing 0.71.
Here a list of the changes:

  • Fixed unitialized variable in joystick. (Fixes crashes on Vista and Mac OS X)

  • Some bugfixes and speedups to the 64 bit recompiling core.

  • Fixed sign flag on soundblaster dma transfers (Space Quest 6 intro)

  • Fixed a bug in keyboard layout processing code and fixed certain layouts.

  • Fixed Dreamweb.

  • Improved speed unlocking when running cycles=max.

  • Fixed a crash related to the tab completion in the shell.

  • Improved aspect correction code. Should now be like how a real monitor handles it.

  • Fixed a bug in the xms status report code. (Blake Stone 1.0 shareware)

  • Added a lot more keyboard layouts.

  • Fixed crash related to changing the scaler before a screen was created.

  • Hopefully fixed compilation on *bsd.

  • Enabled auto cpu core selection for recompiling core as well.

  • Made the used joystick selectable when 4axis is specified.

  • Added some hints for inexperienced DOS users to the shell.

Compatibility should be same as 0.71 and 0.70 aside from the game specific fixes.
