DOSBox-X ist ein Ableger von DOSBox, der den Fokus auf genaue Emulation legt und deutlich mehr Einstellungs- und Konfigurationsmöglichkeiten bietet. Hier gibt es den Download.


DOSBox-X is a fork of DOSBox. It has a focus on accurate emulation of the hardware and many more ways to tweak and configure the DOS virtual machine. You can download it here.

Quote:
0.83.7
  • The primary DOSBox-X Wiki is now located at the
    URL: https://dosbox-x.com/wiki (Wengier)
  • Implemented the x86 dynamic core for both 32-bit
    and 64-bit systems by re-porting the code from SVN.
    Dynamic core now supports either the dynamic_x86
    or the dynamic_rec core. The dynamic_x86 core will
    be used by default for x86 and x86_64 platforms and
    if "core=dynamic" is set, and Windows 9x can be run
    in this dynamic core (although at this time may
    encounter some issue with the S3 driver). You can
    also explicit specify setting "core=dynamic_x86" or
    "core=dynamic_rec" for either the dynamic_x86 core
    or the dynamic_rec core. Also thank joncampbell123
    for the 64-bit fix. (Wengier)
  • You can now use your own save file (in addition to
    save slots! There are now a "Use save file" toggle
    item and "Browse save file..." for browsing save
    files on your computer. A config option "savefile"
    (in [dosbox] section) is added to specify a save
    file to use at start. (Wengier)
  • Save state feature now allows users to optionally
    enter remarks when saving a state. A submenu group
    "Save/load option" is added (under "Capture") where
    you can toggle menu items "No remark when saving
    state" (for disabling input of remarks when saving)
    and "force load state mode". A menu item "Display
    state information" is added as well to display the
    information of the saved state. (Wengier)
  • DOSBox-X will now use native dialog box to display
    quit warnings and save state errors. (Wengier)
  • Changed some DOS error messages (such as "Illegal
    command" which now reads "Bad command or filename")
    similar to real DOS systems. (Wengier)
  • ADDKEY and INT2FDBG commands now appear as programs
    on Z: drive instead of shell commands. (Wengier)
  • Improved the -z (move virtual drive ZSmile function of
    MOUNT command. You can move the virtual drive as
    many times as you want, and save/load states will
    work even after you move the Z: drive. (Wengier)
  • Enhanced the config option "freesizecap" to allow
    the setting "fixed" which is the same as "false",
    and a new setting "relative" is added, which will
    be similar to the setting "fixed" but the reported
    free disk size will also change relative to the
    change of the free disk size ever since. (Wengier)
  • Added support for Opus CD-DA tracks by porting and
    cleaning up the source code from other projects.
    Many thanks to Marty Shepard and kcgen. (Wengier)
  • Support for FluidSynth MIDI Synthesizer is now
    included in the MinGW builds by default just like
    Visual Studio builds. Set "mididevice=fluidsynth"
    and a soundfont file to use it. (Wengier)
  • Enabled xBRZ scaler for Visual Studio SDL2 builds
    just like Visual Studio SDL1 builds. (Wengier)
  • Added menu item "Show Sound Blaster configuration"
    under "Sound" menu to show the current information
    about Sound Blaster, and also menu item "Show MIDI
    device configuration" (also under "Sound" menu)
    to show information about the current MIDI device
    such as the soundfont file in use. (Wengier)
  • Added "Mount multiple disk/CD images" option to the
    mounting options of the Drive menu to allow users
    to mount more than one disk/CD images to a drive,
    swappable from the menu. Also added separators to
    the Drive submenu to make it look better. (Wengier)
  • Added new CPU types to the "Emulate CPU speed" menu
    group namely 286-25MHz, 386DX-25MHz, 486DX4-100MHz,
    486DX5-133MHz, Pentium-60MHz, Pentium-75MHz, and
    Pentium-90MHz. Thanks again for the data provided
    by the user maximus105. (Wengier)
  • You can now select a special key (e.g. Alt+Tab,
    Ctrl+Break, Ctrl+Alt+Del, etc) to be sent from the
    key defined in the mapper editor. The key can be
    selected (Ctrl+Alt+Del by default) from the "Send
    special key" menu group in "Main" menu. (Wengier)
  • Added full Ctrl+Break emulation at the BIOS and
    DOS level, updated console emulation to match.
    The "Pause" mapper shortcut is now moved to
    HOST[F11/F12]+Pause instead of Ctrl+Pause so that
    Ctrl+Break can work properly for users, and the
    function to send the Ctrl+Break key from the menu
    ("Send special key" under "Main") is added. Also,
    the PC-98 STOP key now functions the same as the
    Ctrl+C and Ctrl+Break keys in IBM PC mode.
  • Added functions "CopyToClipboard" and "QuickRun" to
    the mapper editor so that you can use shortcuts to
    activate them (default shortcuts: HOST(F11/F12)+A
    and HOST(F11/F12)+Q respectively), and a default
    shortcut HOST(F11/F12)+V is added to the clipboard
    paste function. Meanwhile, FullCore and SimpleCore
    shortcuts are removed from the mapper. (Wengier)
  • Added two new menu items in the "Shared clipboard
    functions" menu group under "Main", including "Copy
    all text on the DOS screen" which will copy all
    screen text to the clipboard, and "Stop clipboard
    pasting" which allows user to stop pasting in the
    middle of pasting long clipboard content. (Wengier)
  • The mouse copy/paste feature is now available for
    non-Windows systems on SDL2 builds. Also, pasting
    from the clipboard with a mapped shortcut is also
    available for Linux/X11 on SDL1 builds. (Wengier)
  • Added "Use US keyboard layout" toggle menu item in
    the "PC-98" menu group under "Video" to select
    whether to force the default US keyboard layout in
    PC-98 mode, same as the "pc-98 force ibm keyboard
    layout" config option in [pc98] section. Also moved
    the "PC-98 PIT master clock" options from the "DOS"
    menu to this menu group. (Wengier)
  • The full dosbox-x.reference.conf file is renamed to
    dosbox-x.reference.full.conf. The original file
    dosbox-x.reference.conf now contains common config
    options instead of all config options. (Wengier)
  • The CONFIG command and Configuration Tool will now
    save common and modified config options by default.
    The -all command-line option (or "Save all options
    to the configuration file" checkbox) will force to
    save all config options. A new -mod command-line
    option is added to CONFIG command to save modified
    config options only, and a new -norem command-line
    option is added to not write remarks. (Wengier)
  • Updated the Windows installer to default to the
    "typical" installation. For the full installation
    start menu items will be added for DOSBox-X builds
    copied to subdirectories. A new checkbox "Write
    common config options (instead of all) to the
    configuration file" is added which when checked
    will only write common and modified advanced config
    options to the config file. Furthermore, for both
    "typical" and "full" installations the Windows
    installer will now also copies the DLL files
    inpout32.dll (32-bit) and inpoutx64.dll (64-bit) to
    the DOSBox-X install directory for use with the
    direct parallel port passthrough feature. (Wengier)
  • Improved Flatpak support for Linux. (rderooy)
  • Improved message for the -help command-line option,
    adding for example -silent and -socket command-line
    options in the help messages. (Wengier)
  • Added -silent command-line option to run DOSBox-X
    silently (without showing the DOSBox-X window) and
    then exit after executing AUTOEXEC.BAT. (Wengier)
  • Fixed command-line option -socket not working for
    the null-modem feature. (Wengier)
  • Fixed issue that aspect ratio not being respected
    in full-screen mode when a GLSL shader is enabled
    with an OpenGL output. (Wengier)
  • Fixed toggle in the "Frameskip" menu group did not
    change when selecting a different option. (Wengier)
  • Fixed shelling from programs may not work when the
    shell config option is set. (Wengier)
  • The default country setting ("country" option in
    [config] section]) now defaults to auto-detection
    if possible, or 81 (Japan) in PC-98 mode. (Wengier)
  • Increased the default maximum DOS files (adjustable
    from [config] section) from 127 to 200. (Wengier)
  • Improved resetting with LOADLIN program. (Wengier)
  • Improved Gravis Ultrasound (GUS) implementation to
    make it more accurately represent the GUS DMA state
    as expected by the running DOS software.
  • The archive attribute will no longer automatically
    be applied to directories on non-Windows systems.
    This fixed issue with PLAYMIDI.EXE from Gravis
    Ultrasound when listing directories. (Wengier)
  • Applied hack to allow the low DMA channel detection
    in the SB16 DIAGNOSE program to work. (Wengier)
  • The default setting of the clip_paste_speed option
    has been changed from 20 to 30, which will help
    prevent lost keystrokes when pasting from the host
    clipboard for some programs. (Wengier)
  • With Pentium CPU setting (cputype=pentium) DOSBox-X
    no longer reports FDIV bug by default. An advanced
    config option "report fdiv bug" is added to report
    such CPU bug when set to true. (rderooy & Wengier)
  • Added support for the XDG_DATA_HOME environment
    variable for config directory in Linux. (rderooy)
  • Added support for compiling with pcap for Windows
    MinGW builds. (Jookia)
  • Added config option "windowposition" (in [sdl]
    section) to set the window position at startup in
    the positionX,positionY format. (tomba4)
  • Added config option "raw_mouse_input" (in [sdl]
    section; SDL2 builds only) to bypass the operating
    system's mouse acceleration & sensitivity settings.
    Implemented by NicknineTheEagle.
  • Added config option "startquiet" (in [dos] section)
    which when set to true will silence the information
    messages before launching Windows programs to run
    on the Windows host. A toggle menu item "Quiet mode
    (no start messages)" is added to the "Windows host
    applications" menu group in "DOS" menu. (Wengier)
  • The menu "Show details" (under "Main") is renamed
    to "Show FPS and RT speed in title bar". (Wengier)
  • Add menu group "Text-mode" under "Video" menu to
    change some text-mode related video settings, such
    as changing the number of rows and columns. A zip
    package named TEXTUTIL.ZIP is added to the Z drive
    that contains various utilities (such as CGA.COM,
    EGA.COM, 132X25.COM, 132X43.COM) to change current
    video setting from the command line. Also added a
    config option "high intensity blinking" which when
    set will display high intensity background colors
    instad of blinking foreground text. The menu item
    "Allow 9-pixel wide fonts" is moved from the menu
    group "Compatibility" to here. (Wengier)
  • Added "Debugging" menu group under "Help" menu, and
    moved items from the "Video" Debug and "DOS" Debug
    menus and the debugger here (debug builds only).
    Also allowed to hide/show the console or debugger
    window in Windows debug builds. With the menu item
    "Console wait on error" checked the Windows console
    window will wait for the ENTER key before closing
    itself after an E_EXIT occurs. (Wengier)

      Phoney Coders. Clamp tempo to valid range.
    • r4384: ICW1 on the PIC clears the Interrupt Mask
      Register. Fixes Antagony and quite a few demos that
