I think this
is the place where I remember reading about the frontend / no frontend debate.
Notice how FeelDaRads (10th post) put it bluntly :
use the dosbox.conf file."
With the usability factor in mind, getting/offering the game preconfigured is still better than trying to understand/explain how to edit profiles INMHO.
Anyway, nice to see other retro'ers goin' down the DOSBox frontend path.
