Save Disks in Dosbox

Postby Galron » Sun Aug 26, 2018 11:13 am

Anyone know how to make a disk to save on when running games such as KQ1 or Wizard and the Princess PCJR?

They ask for a PCJR 'formatted" disk to save the game on. I assume I need to mount a formatted 'disk img' file, in drive A: an use dosbox disk switching option. But I'm clueless on how to make the formatted disk img in the first place.

Dosbox is not the best for this, since you need a copy of dos to run the FORMAT command, and dosbox doesn't come with one. However, you can use pretty much any bootable DOS image as your "blank formatted" disk image for those games.
