Yes, but if you want to use the enhancements via the dosboxULTIMA7.conf file you're going to need to a type a bunch more line commands. This isn't practical every time you play. Exult handles all that for you, plus the cheat menu is built into the app.
I downloaded the latest version (on 17 Sep 2016) and am encountering the crash error. I edited dosboxULTIMA7.conf to disable the memory managers etc. but it's still crashing on Journey Onwards. Anyone else have any ideas? I do dearly love my QOL hacks. :P
Edit: I figured out how to run Black Gate with cheats on the GOG wrapper! The key element is to basically run the final 'ultima7.com ABCD ' line by hand. Here's how I did mine (back up all conf files of course!):
1) Edit the desktop shortcut. Remove all arguments outside the quotes (so it doesn't close the window after executing). It should look something like
C:\Games\Ultima7\DOSBOX\DOSBox.exe -conf "..\dosboxULTIMA7.conf" -conf "..\dosboxULTIMA7_single.conf"
2) Edit dosboxULTIMA7_single.conf (in notepad)
2a) Strip it down to:
mount C: [your ultima 7 installation destination. I recommend not using spaces when installing.]
@echo Run Ultima 7 by hand for cheats!
Then I just type in command with the cheat argument and it works!
This worked! I had to make some tweaks to get it to run. I was able to copy the desktop shortcut so I have a shortcut for vanilla U7, and cheatified U7. I made a copy of the file dosboxULTIMA7_single.conf and named it dosboxULTIMA7_single_cheats.conf . I had the new shortcut point to it:
"C:\GOG\Ultima7\DOSBOX\DOSBox.exe -conf "..\dosboxULTIMA7.conf" -conf "..\dosboxULTIMA7_single_cheats.conf"
As per step 2a above, my dosboxULTIMA7_single_cheats.conf looks like this:
mount C C:\GOG\Ultima7\
@echo Run Ultima 7 with cheats with ULTIMA7 ABCDalt255
Thanks for the tip, and I hope this helps others
