Dosbox/dosbox turbo/dosbox manager differences and similarities - Part 1

First, for you to know, i use dosbox 0.74 for windows 7 ultimate, dosbox turbo 2.1.17a and dosbox manager 2.1.15a, at this time of writing this blog. I will put the versions that i use, in the right, too.
Learning the differences between them, you will know what is in dosbox 0.74, wich i use in windows 7 ultimate and what is in dosbox turbo and dosbox manager. Dosbox manager is made by the same developer, as for dosbox turbo. See dosbox manager like the virtual shelf in GOG site. You made a .conf file for a game, in dosbox turbo, and run the game, without using dosbox turbo. But you want to use dosbox turbo, to understand things, too. The below letters are in bold and are from dosbox 0.74.conf file and dosbox turbo/dosbox manager. There, in 0.74.conf file, doxbox turbo and dosbox manager, are not in bold of course.
If below you will see a red @, you will know that, that lines are present in dosbox, and not in dosbox turbo and dosbox manager. 
So, because i don't want to bore you to death, below, for dosbox, are only a part of the .conf file.  For dosbox turbo and dosbox manager, i will show all info.
If the dosbox turbo and dosbox manager are using the same lines like in dosbox, you will see a blue @
The differences between dosbox turbo and dosbox manager are on the end of this post. Download my dosbox
0.74.conf file from me or get it from dosbox 0.74, by installing it, if you want to see all info. The next topic in the blog i will enter every line and show the other info it contains, using images and a video, info used from this topic and more.

Dosbox .cfg file

Dosbox :

fullscreen: Start dosbox directly in fullscreen.
fulldouble: Use double buffering in fullscreen. It can reduce screen flickering, but it can also result in a slow DOSBox. 
fullresolution: What resolution to use for fullscreen: original or fixed size
windowresolution: Scale the window to this size IF the output device supports hardware scaling.
output: What video system to use for output.
For example, surface, overlay, opengl, openglnb, ddraw.

sensitivity: Mouse sensitivity.
waitonerror: Wait before closing the console if dosbox has an error.
