DOSBox - How to define global settings, i.e. audio volume?

@dudleydes Wow, this is really cool. So to say a game to be downloaded via setup script :-)
I'll give it a try but probably a little later ;-)
Thanks for pointing me to this.
yeah add it to the [autoexec] part of dosbox-SVN.conf
this is what my mixer looks like
mixer fm 250
mixer sb 65
On a dosbox side note; is there a simple way to run dosbox games that will hide the games folder and also not require entering folders? On another unnamed distribution this could be done by naming the "DOSGAME" folder to "DOSGAME.pc" and including a config file inside the folder.

@Efriim so I have a folder in the roms folder called pc2. I put all the games folders in there. Then I create .conf files named the names of the games and put them in the pc folder. Then in those .conf files I add an [autoexec] section that mounts the drives and points to the exe or bat files in the pc folder that boots that game.
That seems like an adequate solution, I was getting around to an idea like that. I wasn't %100 on .conf being runnable but it makes sense to me now that it overrides the dosbox-SVN.conf. Thanks for the helpful idea.

@edmaul69 I saw you post this somewhere else a while back and I followed your advice. Works perfectly and keeps everything nice and organized!

@quicksilver yeah I can’t stand seeing extra garbage if I don’t have to
@mitu Okay, I think Batocera has a similar dosbox set-up. I really liked Lakka for its retroarch menu, but it doesn't really add anything to Retroarch. Recalbox only worked on my rpi2, that was last year when I first got into all this, I didn't spend long on it before switching to lakka, and then I got a rpi3b+ at the end of the year and tried batocera for a while, lastly I wound up here. Happy with the versatility in scriptmodule updates, and the contributions from the active community. I miss the intro video from batocera though.
@Efriim Batocera is very similar to Recalbox, since it was started by a former Recalbox team member - so I'd expect them to be very close.
