I'm a bit confused about how to add programs to the list of software that works with DOSBox.
If anyone can point me to an article that tells me how to do this, it would be greatly appreciated!
- Yeah, I had to scratch my head a bit to figure that out as well. Here's how:
- 1. Click  at the top of the page. An editable-text version of the page is displayed.
- 2. Scroll down to where you want to add your program and create a new line with [Return].
- 3. Enter your program's name in the format "* name" (omit the quotes). Where name is the name of the program you want to add. The two names follow the standard Wikipedia conventions. For something like this list, most people just make both names the same. You'll see how other entries in the list are formatted, just do the same.
- 4. Scroll down to the bottom and enter a brief summary (I just used the name of the program) and then click [Save Page]. You'll then be asked to enter a secret code word up at the top of the page, which I suppose is to counter spammers (but it seems like overkill to me).
- 5. Then scroll down and click [Save Page] again. Your new program should show up on the list.
- 6. Click on the name of the program you just added. This brings up a new black page where you can enter whatever information you want about how to run the program you added. Then you have to save it with the same rigamarole with secret code words.
