I tried this a few different ways with a few different parsings, usually " .home/user/dosgames/hospital/ " and it just doesn't seem to see it. Am I missing anything?
Sorry, I didn't explain thoroughly. It's not the path of the directory you are mounting, it's he path of the game's directory as mounted in DOSBox
that you need to enter there.
That file is not DOSBox's but of the game, and the game only knows the directories as they have been mounted, not as they are outside DOSBox.
For example, If you are mounting /home/user/dosgames
in DOSBox, with all it's subdirs as directories under C:\, then you need to enter C:\HOSPITAL
in the configuration file.
