It's for Mac and runs unbelievably well.

Cool, that looks like an awesome interface. I'll have to check it out with some GOG.com games!

I used to use this before I got a PC. Works amazingly well. A must have for DOS gaming on Mac!

I have boxer on my old iMac and it works pretty good. The install process is streamlined and works pretty well on most games.

I have boxer as well and it is awesome! Better than running dos games on my windows 7 installation.

Also a Boxer fan, use Dosbox on the PC but loving playing full screen Space Quest etc... on the iMac via Boxer. It's weird to think I'm using a grands worth of machine to play stuff that my old 486 DX2 66 managed to play without flowing down.

I moved over from Dapplegrey to Boxer a couple years ago - I like the ease-of-use it offers.

Hmm... I'm not a Mac user, but I use DOSBox myself on Windows and Linux. Sure it doesn't have a fancy front end like this Boxxer program. But I like writing up DOSBox .conf files and making shortcut icons with box art, heh.

The default folder for Boxer is a wooden shelf type skin and if you embed the artwork in the file you get a nice big picture.

Yeh, its a nice touch that wood grain shelf design - looks cool with the floppy images 'standing' on it. You really can't fault Boxer.

I love the space quest games too! The Roland MT-32 emulation is awesome, It's like all new music to me. You can even see the text from the display that was programmed into the game which I never knew existed before.
