=== CONTEXT AND PREVIOUS APPROACHES ===

My public thanks here go out to any, each, all, and every human being who tried to provide any sort of useful advice here...

https://www.codeproject.com/Lounge.aspx?msg=5728092

The suggested approaches sort-of worked, in a sort-of manner.

I will estimate twenty to thirty total hours in fruitless attempts to do this via purely software screen capture.

They work on the small screen version, but totally crap out when DosBox goes Full Screen

I am now convinced that this goal does not have an immediately workable _Software_Only_ implementation

My Goal...
    1. On Windows 7, Run DosBox
    1. Go full Screen
    1. Execute various historical examples of software from that Era
    1. Record the screen, and my voice, while I am interacting with the software
    1. Save all that in a normal video file (AVI, MPEG, Whatever)
I want the screen recording to look the same as it does on my screen as I sit in front of it.

i.e.,

I want the viewer to see exactly what I see as I'm making the recording.

i.e.,

A pixel for pixel duplicate, at the same speed.

And....

All this recorded in an MPEG (or whatever) file that plays on a regular PC/Mac/Linux/whatever machine.

Am I going to have to build a special PC for this ?

I don't believe that this current Windows 7 PC has an HDMI plug, nor does the monitor.

As far as I can tell, the graphics card is made for one single monitor.

I welcome advice, suggestions, and directions from anyone who has done this or something similar in the past.

Thank you for reading these 276 words
