m (Added a line to touch the dosbox.conf if error pops up in writing to it.)
Line 1: Line 1:
'''dosbox.conf''' is a configuration file located inside the same folder as the DOSBox binary (If you are using Linux, you first have to issue the command ''CONFIG -writeconf dosbox.conf'' inside of DOSBox. Afterwards, the '''dosbox.conf''' file will be written to your home directory). If an error message pops up telling you that the file cannot be created, you may want to run ''touch dosbox.conf'' in your home directory to first create an empty file.  It contains various system settings and initialization values that define your emulated environment.  Everything can be controlled by editing this file or if you like through more graphically oriented [[DOSBoxFrontends|Front Ends]].  You can also create separate '''dosbox.conf''' files for multiple host environments (which is helpful in playing various DOS games that expect various types of hardware).

The configuration file is broken into separate sections which contain section settings.  Many of these settings do not need to be fully understood to configure DOSBox, but it is helpful to know where to look.  You should also be aware that anything to the right of the a '''#''' to the end of the line is considered a comment as is totally ignored by DOSBox when it loads.
