Fixes HOW-TO (2012-04-18 09:19)
To play Bricks in DOSBox you need to follow 3 steps:
1 - Display fix: set machine=cga in dosbox.conf
2 - Sound fix: adjust cpu speed to 400 cycles (use F11 F12 keys)
3 - Keyboard fix: Bricks uses 'Caps Lock' to move LEFT and 'Insert' to move RIGHT (non-changeable). 'Caps Lock' doesn't work well. We need to assign it's function to another key. Let's say we want to use the '<' (key_lessthan) to move LEFT in the game. Here's how to do it: open keymapper (CTRL-F1) and click on < key. It will turn green. You'll see "BIND:key_lessthan" on the bottom-left. Now, on the bottom-center you'll see 3 buttons (Add, Del, Next). Click on 'Del' and the "BIND:key_lessthan" line will go away. Now click on 'CLCK' button (Caps Lock), it will turn green. Click on 'Add' button and you'll see a line in red asking to press a key/joystick button. Then, on your real keyboard, press the < key. If everything went fine you'll see on the bottom-left of screen:
Press 'Save', and you're good to go :)

Will only display well in CGA mode. To fix the sound set the cpu speed to 500 cycles. To fix the 'move LEFT' key (Caps Lock) you need to remap it to another key ( < lessthan works well).
