b]Attention Dosbox Turbo Users there have been some recent changes to the default directory paths. Due to these changes you will now need to change the directory path back to the old default or place the dosbox config into the new location in step 4. You can change the default location now by selecting "Config location" right under where you selected manual mode. You will see a directory path similar to the one below. Note the beginning of the path can vary depending on the type of device used.

Default manual mode config file directory path:
/path to sdcard/android/data/com.fishstix.dosbox/­files/dosbox.conf
