DOS Today: Running Vintage MS-DOS Games and Apps on a Modern Computer


DOS TODAY MS-DOS and its clones were all the PC world had to choose from back in the 80s and early 90s, but faded fast once Windows 95 and its successors were released. Still, tens of thousands of powerful applications and awesomely enjoyable games were released in those years. Some, such as SimCity and Tomb Raider, have been regularly updated and modernized, but what about all the rest? M.U.L.E., Wing Commander, Chessmaster, Kings Quest, Leisure Suit Larry, Pinball Construction Set, and literally thousands of other games have been ignored for decades. They were fun in the 80s, so why not now? And thats not to mention all the powerful non-gaming applications. WordStar, WordPerfect, dBase, Lotus, WildCat, TBBS, Telix, and many, many more run as well today as they did in their prime (or maybe better, since all the bugs were worked out decades ago). Although its possible to find and restore an old computer from thirty years ago, parts are getting scarce. This book explains the ins and outs of DOS emulation on modern Mac and PC computers. How to install and configure the emulators, how to install DOS or a clone, how to work with VIRTUALBOX or DOSBOX to make it all work. Everything you need to know is here!
