    Spikey set up DOSBox Wii on our Wii last night and I got to play an old Dynamix/Sierra game that I used to love - The Adventures of Willy Beamish (which is now abandonware). It works surprisingly well on the Wii. There are a few sound glitches, but the colors are actually more accurate than they are on DosBox on the computer when full-screened.

    It's funny that I have a backlog of new games that I haven't gotten to play or finish yet, but I'm having a great time going back to play older titles that I completed long ago [​IMG].

    Anyway, thanks Spikey!! [​IMG]

    Well, DOSBox's folder seems to be mounted as C by default. So I just stuck the games in its folder and booted them from there. Maybe give that a shot?

    OK!I managed to run some games including Willy Beamish and Dragon's Lair.They run fine but this emu seriously needs pre-button mapping for default.It makes the games unplayable every time you need to press ENTER to pause the game and use the Virtual Keyboard.Also has anyone managed to play Dragon's Lair?I can't even start the game as I don't know what command to type.And even more worse,I can't find where the arrow buttons are mapped.Difficult times...
