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 don't run on your new computer!

DOSBox is totally free of charge and OpenSource.


MorphOS port:
- based on the latest SVN sources (4413)
- compiled with the latest SDK GCC 9.3
- JIT included
- opengl support added
- overlay output fixed, also 2nd overlay mode added ("overlay2"), depeneding of
overlay abilities of gfx card, overlay2 mode requires new powersdl.lbrary
included in the archive, copy it to LIBS:
- sdl_sound support included (playing tracks from iso games) but not tested

New since r4339:
- more CPU compatibility
- Sound hardware fixes and speedups
- JIT fixes and speedups
- better handling for keystroke

@Morphun Same thing happens on my PowerMac with MOS 3.16.

@Morphun: If you don't want DOSbox to eat your CPU-cycles you need to edit dosbox.conf and set cycles= to a reasonable value. I got cycles=5000 which is plenty for ye olde AD&D games I enjoy playing. Takes about 20% CPU of my PowerBooks.

I don't know what functionality or usefulness other users have gained from this DOSBox_0.74r4Jit.lha release, but for me it just runs at about Max CPU and then soon after using the "Intro" checks it "Meditates" and locks-up my whole MorphOS MacMini system, and requires a full reboot, sometimes a double-reboot as the RAM seems to be corrupted by the program. It also causes Wayfarer to "Crash" if I have that running at the same time, but I cannot send a Crash report via the one generated by Wayfarer itself, as during writing the details of what has happened it locks-up my whole system and I cannot even send the Crash report. So, it seems that something or more than one thing is not working correctly with this release - at least those are my observations on (trying to) using it.
