DOSBOX Player Add-on for Linux
#1
I see that DOSBOX player add-on is not available for Linux.

Is it possible to build it myself or download a zipped add-on someone already built?

If there is work in progress somewhere, I would be happy to participate as a tester.

Thanks!

I downloaded https://github.com/zach-morris/kodi_libr...addons.zip

A game I was trying to play has really bad FPS and barely playable. I was want to tweak DOSBOX configuration to see if I can improve anything (for example a common thing is to set memory to 64 megs) but I can't find
Code:
Dosbox.conf
anywhere on my system.

I am not familiar with how Kodi Add-ons work. Could it be that the dosbox configuration is actually hidden inside
Code:
dosbox_libretro.so
?

I have not tried the dosbox addon myself, so don't trust my advice 100%.

If your Unix username is kodi, the addon binaries are in /home/kodi/.kodi/addons/plugin.name/. The addon data directory will be /home/kodi/.kodi/userdata/addondata/plugin.name/. The dosbox.conf file is likely to be in the addon data directory somewhere.

Also, go to Kodi settings, game section, disable autosave and rewind. That should improve the emulation speed.

Another alternative is that you use external Retroarch to use the dosbox core until the Kodi Retroplayer core gets more polished.
