How do I make DOSBox show in full screen mode?
You need to edit dosbox-0.74.conf as given below
Go to terminal and type
and make these changes:
fullscreen=true fulldouble=true fullresolution=1366x768 windowresolution=1366x768
Now save the file and open dosbox. It should be fullscreen with full workspace.

- Goto /home/user/dosbox.conf
- Find resolution
- Change fullresolution from original to your choice (eg. fullresolution=640x480)
- Leave windowresolution intact (i.e, windowresolution=original) as you might want a smaller sized window.
Optional: change fullscreen to true (i.e, fullscreen=true) if you want to start dosbox in fullscreen mode
Severus Tux solution worked on my raspberry pi, but took up far too much computing power. Extreme lag and overheating followed from just rendering the dos prompt.
Another solution is to change the "scaler" parameter to a size that fits your screen the best. you can either double, or tripple the number of pixels used:
pick the one that fits your fullscreen mode the best.
