    DOSBox Wii v1.7


    DOSBox Wii is a port of DOSBox to the Wii using SDL Wii. It also features a Home menu powered by libwiigui. You need a USB keyboard and a Wii Remote. You may also need to change the settings per each game. It is recommended to test specific games on a PC version of DOSBox to find the optimum settings.

    Features

    * USB Keyboard and mouse support
    * Wiimote pointer support
    * SD/USB mounting
    * Most DOS games are playable
    * Home menu, with onscreen keyboard

    Instructions

    You need a Wii Remote and a USB keyboard.

    The C: drive will automatically be mounted to sd:/DOSBox/ if loaded from apps/dosbox-wii/. Otherwise, the directory the dol is loaded from will be mounted as C, and sd:/DOSBox as D (if present). The Z: driver is a virtual drive that is part of DOSBox.

    Other drives can be mounted using the MOUNT command. Prefix sd: for an SD card, and usb: for a USB drive. The Wii's DVD drive and network folders can't be mounted at this time.

    The configuration file is loaded from the directory the dol is located in (if present) and sd:/DOSBox/dosbox.conf otherwise. This file will be created automatically after you start DOSBox. Please edit it with a text editor to choose settings appropriate for each game.

    Press the Home button, type "exit", press Ctrl+F9, or press Reset (on the console) to exit.


    Changelog:

    1.7 - June 30, 2012
    Support for newer Wiimotes
    Updated to latest DOSBox SVN
    Updated to latest libogc and devkitPPC

    Hello. I'm having trouble using this on the wii....whatever drive i try and mount it's telling me it doesn't exist. For example "mount c c:/sd" doesn't exist, "mount c sd:/dosbox" doesn't exist, same with mount d etc.....same if i try mounting the apps directory. I know these directories are there....but dosbox on the wii doesn't think so.

    What am I doing wrong? Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!
