DOSBox-X

competition

As a fork of DOSBox, it retains compatibility with the wide base of DOS games and DOS gaming DOSBox was designed for. That said, it goes further, with a focus on accurate emulation of the hardware and many more ways to tweak and configure the DOS virtual machine. They believe that a better way to emulate the legacy PC platform is to give the user all the options they need to emulate everything from original IBM PC hardware with 64KB of RAM all the way up to late 90's hardware, whatever it takes to get that game or software package to run. Their goal is to eventually make DOSBox-X a complete emulation package that covers all pre-2000 DOS and Windows 9x based hardware scenarios, including peripherals, motherboards, CPUs, and all manner of hardware that was made for PC hardware of that time.
