DosBox + Notes Feature

Post by small » Wed Jun 22, 2011 11:19 pm

I have discovered that if you are using Dos-Box that you are unable to use the Notes Feature, This is due to the CTRL+F12 key combination is a built-in function for Dos-Box. I do not know about other features or setting that maybe affected yet. The key combos used by Dos-Box so far that I know of are:

ALT+ENTER
ALT+PAUSE
CTRL+F4
CTRL+ALT+F5
CTRL+F5
CTRL+F6
CTRL+F9
CTRL+F10
CTRL+F11
CTRL+F12

By removing the mapping for each of the built-in functions that effect the operation of DHPOS, the key combinations become available to DHPOS running inside Dos-Box.

When you start the keymapper, all the custom Dos-Box functions are in the area at the bottom right. "ShutDown", "Cap Mouse", etc. With the exception of "Fullscreen" and "Pause", they all use the F-keys. You can tell when clicking on one of them, because at the lower end of the screen, the binding comes up, like "BIND:Key f9" with "mod1" enabled (by default, mod1 = ctrl, mod2 = alt, mod3 = undefined).

Note that if you remove the key combo for the mapper, you won't be able to restart the mapper again unless you start Dos-Box with the -startmapper argument on the command line. If there's no keys bound to the other functions, they too will of course be unavailable. This should not be a problem, the CPU usage settings can be set directly in the Dos-Box conf file.


I don't know how to make it use the notes feature. I tried and I can disable the CTRL key using the keymapper, but don't know how or if it can be changed to use with dhpos. If anyone knows how please post. I have messed with these mapper keys and can not figure it out.
