DOS emulator to run old DOS games.
DOSBox is a DOS-emulator that uses the SDL-library which makes DOSBox very easy to port to different platforms. DOSBox has already been ported to many different platforms, such as Windows, BeOS, Linux, MacOS X...
DOSBox also emulates CPU:286/386 realmode/protected mode, Directory FileSystem/XMS/EMS, Tandy/Hercules/CGA/EGA/VGA/VESA graphics, a SoundBlaster/Gravis Ultra Sound card for excellent sound compatibility with older games...
You can re-live the good old days with the help of DOSBox, it can run plenty of the old classics that do not run on your new computer!
DOSBox emulates a full x86 pc with sound and DOS.
Its main use is to run old DOS games on platforms which dont have DOS (Windows 7 / Windows Vista / Windows 2000 / Windows XP / Linux / FreeBSD / Mac OS X).
One of the best, and easiest, ways I have ever been able to play an old DOS game on a newer computer.
