If you’re a fan of classic games and love playing them on your computer, then you must have come across .cue files. These files can be a bit tricky to run, especially if you’re not familiar with the process. In this article, we’ll show you how to launch games in DosBox Game Launcher using .bin/.cue files. The best part; you don’t have to type anything.
DosBox Game Launcher is an emulator front-end that makes it easy to organize games. It’s not the only way to run .cue files, but it’s an excellent option for those who prefer a clean and organized interface. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the process of launching games in DosBox Game Launcher.
First, let’s add a profile title. We’ll be using the original Mulan game for this guide, so we’ll call it Mulan. Now, we need to get the game working. Under mounting, click on add, and find the game folder. Select the folder as a directory and hit okay.
Next, add the .cue file image by clicking on the “Open as ISO File System ISO” button. Under “Main,” we’ll be launching the game, and “Setup” is for installation. Hit grab, and the Q file will appear. Then, click on browse to see what’s in the bin file.
Assuming the launch word is “play,” click okay, and then hit setup. Some games require installation, and we should try to set it up first. You might need to input a serial number, but if you don’t have one, click on run.
Congratulations! You’ve successfully launched the game using .cue files in DosBox Game Launcher. If you need to adjust the sound, you can do so later. DosBox Game Launcher is a great tool for organizing and launching classic games. Give it a try and enjoy your favorite games!
