A quick guide (which can be applied to any DosBox game) to correcting the aspect ratio and enabling Steam Overlay and Screenshots.

Note:
– Because of how this function works, screenshots will only occur when something/anything on the screen changes, so it’s not possible to screenshot a completely static image in these games (unless you can manually move something on screen at anytime after pressing the screenshot button). Screenshots are of the first frame to occur after any pixel change.

 
 

How To

 
1. Right click the game in your Library then select Properties > Local Files > Browse. 
2. Go to the respective DosBox folder of each game you want to correct, eg. 
 
Police Quest Collection\PQ1\DOSBOX\ 
 
etc 
 
3. Open that game’s dosbox.conf in any text editor (eg. Notepad, Wordpad, Notepad++, etc.) 
4. Under [SDL], set “fullresolution” to match your desktop res and set output=opengl 
 
Note: You may want to adjust the sensitivity down to 50 as well for games that use mouse. 
 
eg. 
 
fullscreen=false 
fulldouble=false 
fullresolution=4096×2160 
windowresolution=original 
output=opengl 
autolock=true 
sensitivity=50 
waitonerror=true 
priority=higher,normal 
mapperfile=mapper-0.74.map 
usescancodes=true 
 
5. Under [render] set aspect=true 
 
eg. 
 
frameskip=0 
aspect=true 
scaler=normal2x
