Hello.
I understand that if I make a cue file and a bin file I can install MW on Dosbox.
Does Aros have these tools?
I have access to Win and Linux.
Thanks.

I have installed MW2 on my Win10 64 bit machine. It seems to only Imgmount a bin file. I am using Dosbox 0.74. MW2 ran but I do not have sound.

Im not %100 sure, but I believe you can use .iso images too within Dosbox.
As for converting for physical media to images, again, Im not sure, but perhaps frying pan might be work a look at least.

The tutorials I am seeing use a cue and bin combination because Dosbox cannot see the disk when it is in the drive. To play the music that is on the CD. I will have to double check what I just wrote to be sure. I need to check with Dosbox forum.

A mixed mode cd requires cuesheet for dosbox in order to distinguish the data-tracks form audio tracks (it doesn't do/detect that on itself).

More can be read about that here in the dosbox wik, which also links to the cuesheet wikipage.

Alternatively there is another solution with extracting audiotracks from the cd, and provide them in another format (such as .wav/.ogg), but afaik that depends on the game (whether the game supports loading audio-tracks using this method or not) (*)

(*) I might be wrong about that, and it is also possible with using a cuesheet, pointing at the (ripped) audio filenames.

That's a bit vague, to say the least

Any particular error message that could be able to help us pinpoint the issue ?

Note that creating a bin / cuesheet combination should be done with care. It must really be a mixed mode image.

tbh, i do not know if the AROS port of Dosbox has any particularities on that topic (i simply never tried, afaik that is).

Sorry about the vague message. I need to get back to my laptop and try again.

Good news is that I have installed it to my desktop computer which is windows 10. I setup sound and midi during installation and it works during game play. I used name.bin during installation.

I have not tried name.cue yet. I believe that is for either antipiracy or cd music. Which makes me think that name.bin is okay for regular use.

I hope to get it installed on my Aros machine soon.

I am out of town, has anyone tried this on Aros? It could be 2 weeks before I can get to try it.
