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. 

  • The Windows key(s) in Windows and the Command key(s) in macOS will now be displayed as the "Windows" and "Command" keys instead of the "super" and the "meta" keys in SDL1 builds just like SDL2 builds. (Wengier)
  • Cursor blinking rate for TrueType font (TTF) output can now be customized with the ttf.blinkc option. Set an integer between 1 (fastest) and 7 (slowest) to change TTF cursor blinking rate, or setting it to 0 for no cursor (or false for non-blinking cursor as in previous versions), with the default value being 6 on PC-98 systems and 4 elsewhere. (Wengier)
  • Fixed parallel port emulation to allow MDA port 3BCh to work properly.
  • Enhanced the printer function on Windows platforms to allow printer names to be specified in [printer] section via the "device" option for direct printing to the selected device. If left empty, then Windows Print dialog will always be shown, or specifying "-" will cause it to show only once (unless the user clicks "Cancel"). Under "Help" menu there is now a menu option "List Printer Devices" to list printer devices on Windows, and the parallel port LPT1 now
    defaults to the printer on all platforms. (Wengier)
  • The dynamic_x86 CPU core can now handle page faults non-recursively, so you can now run the dynamic_x86 core with Windows 9x/ME without crashes, although this may slightly decrease the performance, and it
    may be disabled by setting the config option "use dynamic core with paging on" in [cpu] section to "false"; the default value of this option has been changed to "auto" which will enable/disable itself
    based on whether the 386 paging and a guest system has been enabled. Also fixed incorrect behavior for handling trap flags in the dynamic core and updated the MMX code for improved performance. (koolkdev)
  • Added support for Direct3D output on Windows SDL2 builds just like Windows SDL1 builds to become the default output in all Windows builds. (Wengier)
  • DOSBox-X now natively supports the pixel-perfect scaling! Set the option "output=openglpp" in [sdl] section of the config file to enable this output. Alternatively, the output can be selected from the menu ("Video" => "Output" => "OpenGL perfect") at run-time. It is recommended to set config options and "aspect=true" (whenever the emulated display has an aspect ratio of 4:3) and "doublescan=false" for openglpp output. Also, with high DPI displays (e.g. on Windows 7+ with DPI scaling enabled) it works better with full-screen mode and the setting "dpi aware=true". It was implemented by ant_222 (patch author) with some code cleanups by Wengier.
  • Updated the Windows installer to add a page for new users to select a video system output to use - the default output (Direct3D), OpenGL with pixel- perfect scaling (openglpp or "OpenGL perfect") for improved image quality, and the TrueType font (TTF) output for text-mode DOS applications. (Wengier)
  • You can now supply a ZIP/7Z file as a parameter to DOSBox-X directly so that it will be mounted as C: drive when DOSBox-X starts. (Wengier)
  • Added overlay support for mounting PhysFS drives so that you can specify a write location when you mounted a ZIP/7Z archive by adopting an old patch.
  • For example, command "MOUNT C C:DIR -T OVERLAY" will specify path C:DIR(C_DRIVE) as the write location after mounting C: drive as a PhysFS drive with a command like "MOUNT FILES.ZIP". (Wengier)
  • Added ability to resolve file paths that include environment variables on Windows or tildes (~) on other platforms for various options in the config file, such as language and mapper file paths, MT32
    ROM & FluidSynth soundfont paths, [config] section options as well as file outputs for the printing and serial/parallel port functions. (Wengier) Added calculator for DOS (EVAL.EXE), which appears
  • on Z drive and can calculate both simple (such as sin(0) and cos(0)) and many advanced mathematical expressions in either command-line mode and or the interactive mode. (Wengier)
  • Added support for standard (VGA/EGA/CGA) and mono mode dual-screen setup by porting the patch. You can now start DOSBox-X with the option -display2 followed by a color (white, green, amber) to enable this feature on debug builds. (Wengier)
  • You can now translate texts in DOSBox-X's drop-down menus. The message files as written by the config tool (CLI or GUI) will contain the menu texts for translations from the English language. (Wengier)
  • Added "file access tries" config option (in [dos] section) so that if a positive integer is provided (e.g. 1 or 3) DOSBox-X will try to read/write/lock files on mounted local drives for the specified number of times before failing on Windows builds. It is especially useful for networked DOS database applications that require record locking. (Wengier) Added "bannercolortheme" config option (in [dosbox] section) so that users can change the background
  • color theme of the welcome banner from the default blue color when DOSBox-X starts. (Wengier) Added "pcaptimeout" config option (in the [ne2000] section) to specify a read timeout value for pcap in milliseconds, or default value (-1 on Windows or 3000 otherwise) will be used. (Wengier & Jookia)
  • Added "Save & Restart" button to the Configuration Tool's "Save" option for saving the config file and then automatically restarting DOSBox-X with this saved configuration. Command-line options -wcboot, -wcdboot and -wcpboot are added to CONFIG command which resemble -wc, -wcd, and -wcp options but will reboot DOSBox-X after writing configfile. Command- line option -bc (-bootconf) is also added to reboot with specified config file (or the primary loaded config file if not specified) directly. (Wengier)
  • The config option ttf.font will now search for TTF fonts in the directory as specified by the fontpath option in [printer] section too. (Wengier)
  • Added special properties to CONFIG command such as "screenwidth", "screenheight", "windowwidth", and "windowheight" so that commands like "CONFIG -GET screenwidth" and "CONFIG -GET screenheight" will get the current screen width and height. (Wengier)
  • BOOT command without a parameter will now try to boot the current drive if possible. (Wengier)
  • You can now change properties such as "fullscreen", "glshader" and "windowposition" dynamically with CONFIG command. For example, command "config -set fullscreen=true" and "config -set windowposition="will now switch on the full-screen mode and center the window position respectively. For TrueType font output, you can now also change the TTF font, the number of rows and columns on the TTF screen, and the word processor for TTF dynamically using CONFIG command, e.g. "config -set ttf.font=test", "config -set ttf.lins=30", "config -set ttf.cols=100" and "config -set ttf.wp=wp". The limits for the options ttf.cols and ttf.lins are increased too. (Wengier)
  • Implemented the DOS network redirector functions so that the host name can be reported to DOS programs, unless the secure mode is enabled. You may need to set either the option ipx=true in [ipx] section or the option ne2000=true in [ne2000] section. Also added config option "network redirector" to [dos] section which if set to false disables the network redirector even with IPX/NE2000 enabled. (Wengier)
  • Fixed an issue that the DOSBox-X window size may be incorrect when restoring from a maximized window in the SDL2 builds. (Wengier)
  • Fixed that the menu option "Select OpenGL (GLSL) shader.." not working properly sometimes. (Wengier)
  • Fixed Ctrl+C not working in GNU ed. (Wengier)
  • Fixed large ISO images (>2GB) unable to be mounted using IMGMOUNT command. (Wengier)
  • Fixed build failure on Gentoo Linux. (fonic)
  • 3dfx games can now work with the Glide passthrough feature when a guest system (guest DOS or Windows 9x) is currently running. The default setting for config option "keep private area on boot" in [dos] section is changed from "false" to "auto". (Wengier)
  • Improved the speed of the Voodoo hardware emulation for running games like Tomb Raider 3dfx. (Wengier)
  • Improved OPL3Duo support, such as adding a buffer thread to get rid of slowdowns & breakups in audio playback when using the board. (DhrBaksteen)
  • Updated the Tiny File Dialog library to the latest version v3.8.5, which fixes issues such as the compatibility problem with Windows XP. (Wengier)
  • Updated FLAC, MP3, and WAV CD-DA decoder libraries to the latest versions (0.12.28, 0.6.26 and 0.12.18 respectively; per David Reid). (Wengier)
  • Integrated SVN commits (Allofich & Wengier)
    • r4426: Emulate debug register 6 during trap flag emulation (and normal int 1). Fixes 544 (jmarsh)
    • r4401: Improve xchg to handle unwritable memory better for core_dyn_x86.
    • r4399: Finish up and add LOOP_NE and LOOP_E for core_dyn_x86.
    • r4393: Remove video page check when drawing internal mouse pointer, as the BIOS current page is not updated in some cases. Fixes QQP games: Lost Admiral, Conquered Kingdoms, and Solitaire's
      Journey. Also be a bit smarter about enabling autolock, supporting more cases where the mouse is used for input without resetting it.
    • r4392: Improve capturing of Zeliard and fix a few percussion-related capturing problems as well.
    • r4310: Improve PMAKE on big endian machines and fix some bugs. Fixes bug in 16 -> 15 bit color conversion.
    • r4309: Copy working directory when mounting an overlay.
    • r4307: Refinement of SoundBlaster checks, so no IRQ is raised when not in autodma mode.
