EmuCR: DOSBoxDOSBox SVN r3961 is released. DOSBox emulates an Intel x86 PC, complete with sound, graphics, mouse, joystick, modem, etc., necessary for running many old MS-DOS games that simply cannot be run on modern PCs and operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Linux and FreeBSD. However, it is not restricted to running only games. In theory, any MS-DOS or PC-DOS (referred to commonly as "DOS") application should run in DOSBox, but the emphasis has been on getting DOS games to run smoothly, which means that communication, networking and printer support are still in early development.

DOSBox also comes with its own DOS-like command prompt. It is still quite rudimentary and lacks many of the features found in MS-DOS, but it is sufficient for installing and running most DOS games.

DOSBox SVN Changelog:
Add support for Print Screen key and interrupt. The keypress allows Descent 1 and 2 ingame screenshot feature to be used, the keypress and interrupt allow the Horror Hotel (TSR text adventure) hotkey to work, and the compatible interrupt handler location fixes a game bug in The Forgotten Land.
Stop speaker output after command write, pending counter write. The hacky implementation will serve until timer/speaker is improved. Fixes constant speaker tone in Arnie 2 and Chopper Duel when using SB sound, also Titus The Fox title screen when using speaker sound.
Speaker init in BIOS causes samples to be generated at startup, so for now move it to hardware.
Comment out unused counter var inside a busy loop. Compilers might be smart enough to drop it, but this way is certain.
minor cleanup
