  20 reviews

DOSBox is a x86 emulator with Tandy/Hercules/CGA/EGA/VGA/SVGA graphics, sound and DOS. It's been designed to run old DOS games on platforms that don't support it.

The following legacy sound devices are emulated: PC Speaker, Creative CMS/Gameblaster, Tandy 3 voice, Adlib, Sound Blaster Pro/16, Disney Soundsource and a Gravis Ultrasound. MPU-401 is forwarded to the host.

In ~/.dosbox/dosbox-[ver].conf, change: output=opengl # For non-Windows OSes, use output=opengl instead, so the resolution can be set!

It works as intended. Lets you mount a directory to use at the C: drive, then from there you can put your games and have a blast playing them. Nice product

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)

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.

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.
