    Hello All,

    Does anyone know how to open the DOS command prompt in DosBox from Emulation Station? Or perhaps there is a way to get to the Dos command line when in a DOS game - Selecting "Quit to DOS" returns me to Emulation Station.

    Thank you


  • @crumbs are you setting up .sh files or just loading the .exe files? If you are loading a .sh file remove the

    -c “exit”
    

    From the end of the line inside the .sh file. Although there should be a dosbox file in the pc folder that boots right into dosbox commandline.


  • Ah! Just hit button A on the DosBox choice in Emulation Station. Silly question, sorry, I didn't see it. Solved.

    @edmaul69 Just wanted to run some batch files.
