    Arvid,

    Sorry, I have little clue as to what a DOSBox is, though the “-Box” part reminds me of Xbox, which is a video game (I gather), so maybe it’s one of those? Forgive my techno-naivete; I haven’t played any video games since about 1985 or ’86. No doubt they’ve increased in sophistication since the mid-80s…. Perhaps when you have a free hour or two (after “Rex Mundi” deadlines are met, of course) you can invite me over (hint-hint) and re-introduce me to the genre. I’ll bring the hot cocoa. Or something.

    Cheers,

    sw

    DOSBox is a DOS emulator. So–you put it on your computer, and all of a sudden, you can play all of those wonderful, early PC games from the 1980s and 1990s.
    abandonia.net is a grrrreat place to legally download old games.

    If you’ve never played The Secret of Monkey Island or Ultima 7, you’re in for a fantastic treat!
