Dosbox + EMU41 problem
Message #1 Posted by Geir Isene on 29 Nov 2009, 5:18 p.m.

Running EMU41 in Dosbox under Ubuntu 09.04:

It starts and after about two seconds, on top of the bottom part (the f1 - f12 buttons) it prints out the content of the Mcode registers and on the last line it prompts "Cmd: " and with a blinking cursor.

Any takers?

A "secret" debugger?

Nothing secret about it. It's in the EMU41 docs. Run 'emu41 /d' to get to the debugger. The prompt is 'Cmd:'. CTRL-Z from EMU41 will also dump you into the debugger. Perhaps you pressed CTRL-Z to background DOSBox but had the focus on DOSBox.

This is unrelated to DOSBox. IIRC, corrupt ROM images can also dump you into the EMU41 debugger. Try a fresh install of EMU41.

That fixed it. Thanks.
