From what I understood, you need a very strong computer to run LBA in DOSBox.

I found this on the GOG.com forums:
Quote:
Go into the game's directory (c:/program files/GOG.com/Little Big Adventure) and edit the dosboxLBA.conf file in notepad. Find where it says core=XXXX and make the following changes:

core=dynamic
cputype=auto
cycles=max
cycleup=5000
cycledown=5000
Let me know if that helps!

you're welcome

In case anyone had a similar problem in the future: I forgot that if you're not using the GOG version but regular DosBox you'll have to edit the file found at {system drive}:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\DOSBox\dosbox-{version}.conf instead, where {system drive} is the drive letter of the system drive, {username} is the current username and {version} is the installed DosBox version (0.74 is the latest).

If you're using windows (dunno about mac or linux) this:
Quote:
{system drive}:\Users\{username}\AppData
can be replaced by:
Quote:
%APPDATA%
Convenient shortcut. It's an environment variable, and I'm not sure if other OSs also have those.
Important to note that Renesans's suggestion doesn't work on XP as it has different folder structure. The appdata variable is version independant.

%APPDATA% points to {system drive}:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming, not {system drive}:\Users\{username}\AppData under Win7

Alternatively, you can use %LOCALAPPDATA%, which points to {system drive}:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local under Win7, but it doesn't work in XP.

Hmm, a minor discrepancy that I couldn't know. However it still simplifies the path, which was my intent.
