Why not learn something useful in your spare time? Like take soe tutorials on art work, or learn AGS. :lol:

Honestly I think that idea is a waste of time, but thats just me. :wink:

Ouch man that was harsh...

I'm not sure what you are trying to do, but if it is what I think it is, I think its a great idea. Dosbox needs some art

Sounds like a fine idea. It might reduce the amount of questions that we have to answer here. 8)

Blahdiedadie - I think it's a great idea. It would be very helpful to those that play old games like us, and if it interests you, you would be the perfect person to do it. I wouldn't even know where to begin. Let us know if you pursue it.

It sounds kinda neat to make a Sierra-specific frontend, but I don't think a lot of people would use it, because a lot of people who are ignorant in the ways of DosBox (like me :wink:) probably already have D-Fend, a Windows frontend for DosBox.

It can be found here --

Wow, D-Fend looks pretty cool. Any members have any experience with it? I'm always a little hesitant to load these programs on my new computer (since some bad programs screwed up my old computer).

That is a great idea blahdiedadie. I hate having to configure dosbox everytime I get on it. If you ever do this, do me a favor and find a way so that you don't have to set your CD-ROM drive anymore, I know it only takes a few seconds to type, but it gets old and I forget sometimes and have to restart to get speech and sfx.

Go for it Blahdiedadie, Good luck with that. :wink:

It was just an idea I didn't mean to be harsh.

Johnny Westland, I've had really good experiences with D-Fend so far. In fact, I was the guest that posted the link above. I didn't realize that I wasn't signed in. Oh, phpBB, why are you always trying to make me look bad? XD

Anyway, it's pretty neat, VERY easy to use, since you can save all of your profiles, and if you are super-nerdy, like me, you can load and use all of the actual icons from the games for each profile. Witness! --

It hasn't caused any problems on my computer... At least, not yet, but I have been running version 2 frequently and successfully for several months now. You just have to run it with DosBox...version .62, I think? Actually, when you open D-Fend, it runs DosBox so you don't have to deal with it at all, yay! Also, all of the old Sierra games I play run fine just on the presets in the Profile Wizard thing, so it's super easy.

And before anyone asks, I am in no way affiliated with the guy who made D-Fend, so I'm not trying to hype it up or push it on people. Just trying to help out my fellow Sierra enthusiasts. :wink:
