was developed to play old DOS-games that won`t run on modern PCs anymore. It is an open source DOS emulator for BeOS, Linux, Mac OS X, OS/2, and Windows. You can even slow down or speed up the game a little bit.
When using DOSBox for the first time about 2006, I didn`t get anything to run. I guess I just didn`t read or understood the instructions how to mount the virtual drives (your native drive with your programs and the CD-drive are named in DOSBox as drive C: and D:).
In 2008 I gave it a new start and I wondered how simple it was:
This is a list the official list of DOS-pinsims running under DOSBox and on the right some more pinsims I tested.
|Absolute Pinball||Royal Flush|
|EPIC Pinball||Pinball Mania|
|Extreme Pinball||Steel Shot|
|Hyper 3D Pinball / Tilt||3D-VCR (with bad physics+speed)|
|Pinball Wizard 2000/Construction kit|
|Pinball Dreams 1+2|
I`m still trying to get pinball warriors to run, but I don`t get into the menue. Just one table (Robot) is playable.
In version 0,65 (actual one in 2008=0,72) you can play Pinball Illusions with a no scrolling (small) resolution! I have the problem, that the flippers are cut off, I see only the tip of them when using them. The screen is small but you see where to shoot at! It seems possible to change the resolution for some tables to have a smaller but not scrolling playfield.
