    Default Check out the sweetest DOS emulator yet.

    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!

    If you can't do it with 8 bits, you don't need to do it.

    Check out my original rock/blues/folk/country at www.zeyerband.com or myspace.com/zeyerband.

    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.
