I've started my first multi-race testbed and run into a bit of trouble.
I'm running DosBox (downloaded here the DosBoxC package) with the following paths:

C:\Stars\Universe, where the game files are
C:\Stars, where the stars.exe is
C:\Windows, where Windows is

Now, I got the "windows\win /n c:\stars\stars.exe -x -a c:\stars\gamename.def" to work.
However, when I try "windows\win /n c:\stars\stars.exe -x -dp c:\stars\universe\gamename.m1" I get no result. Nothing.

Ok, I'm probably missing something obvious here, but I'm out of my depth here. I'm going along on a monkey sees, monkey does basis and would appreciate any help.
I'm not looking forward to 45 turns with 6 races where the only thing I have to do is creating the .p? file. Doing it with only one race was a pain, but at least I had it set up so I had to do something each turn.

Thanks in advance,

(edit) typo
