any idea on where can i find dos based games to play on this platform?
works great and lets you play dos games, some are masterpieces, most are free or almost free. 1. in your home directory (where Documents, Desktop, etc., folders are) create a folder 'dos'. put the folder with your dos game inside that 'dos' folder. now you have a folder, say, 'dune2' inside folder 'dos' 2. run dosbox, type 'mount c ~/dos' (without apostrophe). enter. 3. type 'c:' 4. type 'dir' - you'll see content of dos folder and your dune2 folder listed. 5. type 'cd dune2' to change directory to dune2 6. type 'game.exe' or whatever the game file is called (something.exe)
Give a Dos software compatibility
Best DOS Emulator hands down. One of my favorite Linux Wares.
best way to play dos games
Masterpiece. Just played old Prehistoric 2. Great!
We've been using DOS Emulators for years, and we've been using DOS since the 80s. This is by far the best DOS Emulator we've ever seen on ANY platform.
Pretty good port of dosbox. Lets me play all of the classics.
Perfectly smooth Emulator. Works exactly like a late 80's and 90's PC.
Great utility for older games. Even some Steam packages use Dosbox to run their older games on newer systems. Fantastic.
One of the best apps for linux mint 18 mate 64Bit - works perfectly, love it!
TES: Arena is bugging, dont know if normal or not :/
If you want to play some 'retro' and 'old' dos games, Dosbox is the sollution :-)
Однозначно ставить, если хочется поностальгировать по старым игрушкам
works great :) thanks for making this package
Be it Windows, be it Linux, DoSBox never disappoints!
If you want to run DOS programs, this is the best solution on the web currently. Fantastic stuff!
Helps me playing childhood games like Prince of Persia. :P
