About this app

A DOSBox port for Android. DOSBox is a x86 emulator developed by DOSBox Team for playing old PC games.

** First practical DOS emulator for Android **
** Apps of the Week, ZDNet, Sept 2011 **

IMPORTANT: Like other emulators this software requires sdcard access and lots of resources to run properly. Make sure you have > 50MB free memory, and your sdcard can be accessed through /sdcard.

We appreciate any rating, comments and suggestions, but in case you need some answer, please check faq or email us directly.

Regarding GPL please refer to home page.

-Portrait and Landscape mode with/without resize.
-Sound support
-Software and Hardware keyboard input
-Support entering special keys like Ctrl, ESC and Function keys
-Support Virtual TrackPad, Virtual Joystick, and Pen mode
-Support mouse control with physical Trackball or Mouse

Regarding arrows and special keys(like ctrl, alt, shift): AnDOSBox is designed to work with external input solution, seek out and use anything you see fit. We also built an "Extra layout" plugin for our Flit Keyboard. (see AnDOSBox home page for details). For enhanced gaming keypad, please check out our "GameKeyboard" app.

Known Issues
-On some device it failed to call out the software keyboard. In this case, try holding the "menu" hardware key, or turn on (menu->input mode->show keyboard fix).
-In some program sound is broken (stop after awhile) when Speed Patch C is turned on.
-Some devices with physical keyboard failed to input additional characters by pressing Alt+Key. Please refer to FAQ General Usage #1.
-It's said that some high-end snapdragon based devices have poor performance. We never received an official report, please contact developer in this case.

If you have problem running a particular DOS program, please check with DOSBox Team for compatibility before report to us.

Dont download with modern phone, message appears and states when you install saying that the software is designed for older android. I cant find any directory even though the file is there, can not mount c drive, was unusable for S10 plus anyway. Its complicated to use anyway by the looks, I downloaded a free dos emulator from another developer and works perfect very simple. I suggest to people find another app
