    "Great way to run DOSBox, unable to simplify everything"

    March 16, 2011  |   By ThomasHarte

    Pros

    Once your old DOS programs are set up correctly, you can have them appearing as a single bundle in the Finder, with an appropriate icon, launching immediately upon double click.

    Cons

    Lots of manual work involved in setting up the correct machine hardware for each game (eg, no GUI route is provided to set emulated sound cards, graphics cards, etc); DOSBOX issues (such as the window centring of its own volition) show through.

    Summary

    It makes DOSBOX a lot easier to take, but it'd be easy to imagine a much more user friendly way to do the same thing if DOSBOX integration weren't such a barrier.
