The Finishing Touch:

Although we have the game fully working at this point we still need to go back and quickly add another command in the dosbox config file. After you are finished playing the game for the first time exit the game and then exit Dosbox. This can be done by typing "exit" and pressing enter at the C:\> prompt.

Now head back to the Dosbox config file and scroll to the [autoexec] section again. Under the commands we have already added type "blood". It should look like this.

Reediting the config file
Save and exit the config file when you are finished.


There will be Blood:

in your folder, open dosbox.conf using notepad, and at the line memsize=
make it memsize=38. save it and exit. that should do it

Cool. It works.

However, I would prefer to play it in fullscreen as opposed to the small dosbox window.

Any way to do this?

Also, how do you aim up and down with the mouse? is it possible?

I put "config -writenconf dosbox.conf" and I get something like "nosuch section or property".
