Happy New Year!!!
2021 – I decided to compile MaddTheSane’s Boxer fork on BigSur and make a site in honor of Boxer’s continued life!
This build works on 10.15 (Catalina) and 11.0 (BigSur). It’s basically MaddTheSane’s with minimal personal tweaks. I take no credit for the work here … I just appreciate his, the original author’s work, and the DOSBox team for making retro gaming possible in 2021’s modern 64-bit operating systems.
Minimal testing on this – If you have any problems you can post them on MaddTheSane’s Github. Hope you enjoy it folks!
Edit – Had some distribution issues with signing of app. I have a copy I found here instead which works until then.
I tried to compile the ScummVM-Emscripten port by juj without initial success. So…I had to hack up the configure script and a file (forbidden.h) to make it work with Ubuntu 18.04 Emscripten 1.38.27 (latest at the time of this post).
I haven’t modified it more than that though…overall the project looks abandoned and hasn’t been improved or documented very well (i.e. where is scummvm.ini? How to package games correctly and autostart them. Full screen? pssh).
I’m working on tweaking the games to see if I can get Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders FM-Towns version (the only 256 color version with great sound) working in my DOS Games section.
I’ve added quite a few games to this section and will continue to add some more 🙂
