Gotcha. As a matter of fact there is a version for several different
platforms including: Mac, Linux, and Windows. One thing I have noticed
though it seams to run better on non-Windows platforms. I think that is
because Windows Vista and Windows 7 are such resource hogs they don't
give you enough resources at times to run a very large dos application
For example, I wanted to play a pinball game from my MS Dos/Windows 3.1
days via DOSBox. Well, under Windows Vista the audio and vidio would
breakup on me. So I tried the same game under Ubuntu Linux with DOSBox
for Linux. If I launched it from the console, not from in Gnome, the
game ran fine. Point being is that some times having a graphical user
interface uses a lot of extra system resources you may need for some
processor and hardware intensive titles. Though, if I am not mistaken
most VI gamers probably want DOSBox for text based games which isn't all
that resource intensive.
> We are talking about the same thing, I thought by reference to dosbox
that worked for windows that meant it would run in windows.
