Dosbox (ADOM)


Hello,

I installed Dosbox on Ubuntu and am using it to play ADOM. However, when I full screen it with alt-enter the mouse cursor moves to the middle of the screen and can't be moved away. It's not really a big deal but it's kind of annoying. Anyone know how I might fix this?

Thanks.

Use the native build

The most obvious way to fix it would be to run the native GNU/Linux build of ADOM: http://www.adom.de/adom/download/lin...111-elf.tar.gz, which seems to work just fine for me on Ubuntu. It seems to be a regular terminal app, which means you can use whatever font size you want in terminal emulator. In gnome-terminal, you can even go full screen with F11.

Running the DOS version in DOSBox also seems to work fine on my system, but I don't see any mouse pointer when I hit Alt-Enter to go full screen, so I'm not sure why you do.
