Boxer Updated v1.0.1 – DOS Game Emulator

The DOS game emulator for Mac OSX now sits at version 1.0.1. This app is great. All you have to do is drag and drop one of your old dos games into it and let Boxer make some magic. You’ll be playing all the old classic DOS games in all their oldskool glory in no time. Download it from the Box File Widget or go scope out their homepage.

Let’s check out the changes they have made.

Improvements to game importing and disk-image handling:

*Support for mounting and importing from .IMA floppy-disk images.

*Better importing for many Good Old Games releases: standalone .GOG disc images are now properly recognised and imported as .ISOs.

*“Auto-Pause in Background” option is now ignored while importing a game, to allow lengthy installer operations to complete unattended.

*Extra volumes no longer appear in Finder when Boxer is importing from a disk image.

*Newly-imported gameboxes with duplicate names now get a different suffix to avoid them looking like sequels.

Input fixes and tweaks:

*Fixed Shift keys sticking when pressed simultaneously (sorry pinball game fans!)

*CapsLock state is synchronised correctly at startup and when switching back to Boxer.

*Added F11 and F12 shortcuts to Send Key menu.

*Changed speed up/slow down CPU shortcuts to Cmd-Up and Cmd-Down.

*Cursor now vanishes correctly after unpausing when “Follow mouse when Unlocked” is enabled.

Other fixes:

*Boxer now prevents you from choosing to keep your games directly in an OS X system folder (Documents, Applications, your Home folder etc.) Subfolders of these are still fine of course.

About Mac Emulators
I am an Old School gamer with roots in emulation and gaming. I love video games, but mostly I love the old ones from our past. Emulation is a way to experience all these old games on your personal computer.
