Okay, quick question which I couldn't find anywhere... is there a way to force 1024x768 resolution - mainly for fullscreen display.
For those with lcd displays - fullscreen bad
Okay, from messing around with qemu for the last couple of days (freedos, Ms dos 7.1, dsl):
I can finally get dsl fullscreen so I can see the bottom bar. Ummm, if your monitor can't handle resolutions below 1024x768 (or maybe below 800x640... 640x480 is the default dos and dsl "text" modes) don't try to run with -full-screen on the command line. Qemu messes up, crashes, things in windows go strange, the mouse freezes... and when I reboot the monitor just displays "This monitor can't handle this resolution - change the input to 1024x768" ummm, which is very difficult to do when you can't SEE! Rebooting into safe mode (press ctrl while booting) deleting the video driver (with no mouse because safe mode doesn't use my usb mouse... and you can't change the resolution because it is set for 16colors 640x480) rebooting, finding the driver, rebooting... finally working again.
Ummm, so yeah I've done this about 20 times this weekend!!!
It seems slower to me... I'll have to experiment more with the old one - maybe because my system is not that much more powerful than the emulated one... so it is not able to run in what is left of the system after winME is running. I don't know - I'll try changing the memory a bit as well. Maybe 192 will be better.
Anyway, just thought I'd give everyone a bit of a warning - fullscreen can mess things up, so try only switching to it when fluxbox is up and switch back BEFORE shutting down....
(Umm, quick question...? )
