ok just tested it , my keyboard doesnt work either. I think the SDL feature of emulating keyboard with controller breaks real keyboard entry.

just use the dosbox auto start in dosbox.conf untill i can try to fix it

=) thank you GPF, finally a answer, when you have fixed this problem upload the
emu for download.
I m very happy of see a good dos emu, and hope of see this problem fixed, i have made a great collection of ooooolddddd dos games 1983-1984, like me see on my dreamcast.
I can't wait =), but patience wait.

Thank you for your work!!!!

If it's of any use the keyboard works for me (although I haven't tested extensively), I use a PAL DC - controller (official) in port 1, keyboard in port 2.

I have resolve partial the problem, now the keyboard work.
I have used the standard game when i have download the binary and setting of .conf made by GPF, with keen demo.
When start the emu start the game but the emu crash after 40 second, to me keen demo, don't work.

I have delete in .conf the autexe and put only
( mount c "/")

But here another problem, i have put in cd many directory, all with max 8 charatters.

When put
c: cd cd
c:\cd: (and here is ok)
after write

c:\cd: dir (if put dir/w don't work)

see all my directory but when i made for example

c:\cd:cd KEEN1
(i can' t see nothing, appear this message)
File *.* not found
not see the file.com
when i try to write for example
KEEN.COM appear always same message "FILE *.* not found

GPF i understand the problem, the emu not see inside the directories

c: cd cd
c:cd burgerti (my directory burgertime)
c:\burgerti: dir (when write DIR not appear nothing)
but if i know the name of file.exe the game start.

The emulation is pretty good, also slow, but if you better in the next version the your is emu can be one of more beauty =)
I hope of help you with my information, sorry for the problem with my keyboard.
There are many better by made, but the start is GOOD =).

Now i'm testing games, but many games don't work
I have look list compatibility of DOSBOX 0.60, I have also installated the DOSBOX 0.60 in my pc, but in dreamcst version many games wich work in original pc, here don't work =(.
The dangerous dave series don't work, i now trying GAUNTLET, but norhing.
The compatibility is very limited.
i wait and hope for a version better.

excuse for me long post, i also testing dosbox, there a great problem, the emu is totaly instable, i'm explain better.
For example
I START the emu and i want play at game "ALLEYCAT"
i have tried and don't work.
After restart the emu try "ALLEYCAT" and don't work
RESTART the emu.
same game wich first don'k now work.
I have always reset DREAMCAST for play at a single game.
I can't made a list of compatibility, is instable.
