|Introducing StarsBox - a standalone DOSBox + Win 3.11 + Stars! zip file.|
It has the following features:
* Standalone! No installation necessary; runs in any folder. Just double-click the file 'stars.bat'
* Tested in Windows 7 and 10, 64-bit
* Includes Stars! 2.6jRC4 + Stars Notebook and help file (all shown on the desktop)
I can host the file for a short while, but it would be nice to put it somewhere more permanent (like on the wiki) if it ends up being useful
Thanks to all of those who have pioneered Stars! + DOSBox in the past (especially gible and Mark Hewitt)
Note that the mouse is sometimes funny in DOSBox. You can modify the stars_dosbox.conf file found inside and/or make use of this page:
I've updated the package so it uses the 'autolock' feature by default. You'll have to press CTRL+F10 to toggle the mouse. This should fix the mouse issues.
Updated download URL per raptor's request.
