    "Downloaded an antivirus software instead!"

    March 16, 2009   |   By fireproofraven

    Version: DOSBox 0.72

    Pros

    Couldn't download it!

    Cons

    It transferred you to a different site where it automatically began downloading onto my pc an antivrus software. Rubbish!

    Summary

    When you go to Download.com you trust that it probably is safe, but this download is a con.

    "Peelgrunt Game of Gammon IV v. 6.4"

    October 03, 2004   |   By grikdog

    Version: DOSBox 0.62

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Wow, I never expected to see my old backgammon game from 1986 run on a Macintosh!

    #!/bin/sh

    /Users/dave/bin/DOSBox/DosBox.App/Contents/MacOS/DosBox /Users/dave/bin/DOSBox/Peelgrunt/backgmmn.exe


    The game executes flawlessly, probably faster than the IBM PC rendered it. I have one caveat -- BACKGMMN.EXE uses a kludge from Seattle to avoid snow on the screen by blitting only during vertical retrace. This seems to cause a low, regular popping noise like dragging a soft stick along a picket fence. Other than that, perfect!
