Download DOSBox-X 0.83.10 and Run DOS Games and Applications on Any Platform
DOSBox-X is an open-source DOS emulator for running DOS applications and games. DOS-based Windows such as Windows 3.x and Windows 9x/Me are officially supported. Compared to DOSBox, DOSBox-X is much more flexible and provides more features. Look at the for more information about DOSBox-X and usage guides.
DOSBox-X emulates a PC necessary for running many DOS games and applications that simply cannot be run on modern PCs and operating systems, similar to DOSBox. However, while the main focus of DOSBox is for running DOS games, DOSBox-X goes much further than this. Forked from the emulations so that you can play DOS/V and PC-98 games with it.

Compared with DOSBox, DOSBox-X focuses more on general emulation and accuracy. In order to help running DOS games and applications, Windows 3.x/9x/Me, as well as for the purpose of historical preservation, testing and continued DOS developments, it is our desire to implement accurate emulation, accurate enough to help make new DOS developments possible with confidence the program will run properly on actual DOS systems. DOSBox-X includes various features for different purposes (some of them ported from other projects), which are implemented as incremental changes since it was forked from . DOSBox-X provides many ways to tweak and configure the DOS virtual machine, as we believe a better way to emulate the DOS platform is to give users all the options they need to emulate everything from the original IBM PC system all the way up to late 1990s configuration, whatever it takes to get your game or software package to run.
Our goal is to eventually make DOSBox-X a complete emulation package that covers all pre-2000 DOS and Windows 9x based system scenarios, including peripherals, motherboards, CPUs, and all manner of hardware that was made for PC hardware of that time. Below are screenshots of some DOS programs and games running in .

Configuring and running DOSBox-X
After you have downloaded and installed DOSBox-X, you need to configure it to suit your needs and preferences. DOSBox-X uses a configuration file named dosbox-x.conf to store the settings for the emulation. You can edit this file with any text editor, or you can use the graphical tool named DOSBox-X Configuration Tool to change the settings in a more user-friendly way.
The configuration file is divided into several sections, each containing various options for different aspects of the emulation. For example, the [sdl] section contains options for the window size, fullscreen mode, output method, etc. The [dosbox] section contains options for the machine type, memory size, CPU type, etc. The [render] section contains options for the aspect ratio, scaler, etc. The [mixer] section contains options for the sound channels, sample rate, etc. The [midi] section contains options for the MIDI device, MT-32 emulation, etc. The [dos] section contains options for the DOS version, keyboard layout, code page, etc. The [autoexec] section contains commands that are executed at startup, such as mounting drives and running programs.
You can find a detailed explanation of each option in the configuration file itself, or in the . You can also use the DOSBox-X Configuration Tool to view and change the settings in a graphical interface. To launch the tool, you can either run dosbox-x-config.exe (Windows), dosbox-x-config (Linux), or DOSBox-X -> Configuration Tool (macOS). The tool will show you all the sections and options in a tree view, and you can click on any option to see its description and possible values. You can also search for an option by name or keyword. When you are done with the changes, you can save the configuration file and exit the tool.
To run DOSBox-X, you can either double-click on dosbox-x.exe (Windows), dosbox-x (Linux), or DOSBox-X (macOS), or you can run it from a command line with optional parameters. For example, you can specify a different configuration file with -conf parameter, or you can specify a program to run with -c parameter. You can also drag and drop a program file onto DOSBox-X to run it automatically. For more information about the command line parameters, you can run DOSBox-X with -help parameter or see the .
When DOSBox-X is running, you will see a window showing the emulation screen. You can use your keyboard and mouse to interact with the emulated system, just like on a real DOS machine. You can also use some special keys to control DOSBox-X itself. For example, you can press Alt+Enter to toggle fullscreen mode, Ctrl+F10 to capture or release the mouse cursor, Ctrl+F11 or Ctrl+F12 to decrease or increase the CPU speed, etc. You can also press Ctrl+Alt+F1 to open a drop-down menu that allows you to access various functions and settings of DOSBox-X without leaving the emulation screen. You can also press Ctrl+Alt+F12 to open a mapper editor that allows you to customize the keyboard and joystick mappings.
One of the most important things you need to do before running any DOS program is to mount drives and image files. A drive is a logical unit that represents a storage device, such as a hard disk, a floppy disk, or a CD-ROM. An image file is a file that contain
