EmuCR: DOSBoxDOSBox-X v2022.08.0 is released. DOSBox-x is a branch of DOSBox. 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.

DOSBox-X Changelog:
Fill in PC-98 BIOS data area byte value indicating
CPU type (whether 8086, 286, 386 or higher)
(Wengier), fill it in at startup (joncampbell123).
CHOICE now supports breaking and errors on end of
file or pipe instead of freezing DOSBox-X. (Jookia)
Fixed debugger commands parsing numbers wrong. (Jookia)
Fixed DIR crashing on volumes with more than
999,999,999,999 bytes of free space. (Jookia)
Switched to year.month.patch versioning (Jookia)
Fix NE2000 panicking if packets are queued too fast.
(kcgen, Jookia)
Fix ISO image format detection to support pure
UDF formatted images, meaning that the image
lacks any ISO 9660 features and contains only
UDF. (joncampbell123).
Added support for UDF filesystem to ISO image
handling. It is enabled by default if emulating
MS-DOS 7.10 (aka Windows 98) or higher.
Added code to detect Rock Ridge according to the
System Use Sharing Protocol standard, and to
read the SUSP entries correctly for the alternate
name, if enabled. (joncampbell123)
Updated ISO MSCDEX drive emulation to scan the
available volumes in the ISO image rather than
assume the first volume, which makes Joilet
support possible if long filenames are enabled
and the DOS version is 7.0 or higher. (joncampbell123).
Add IMGMOUNT -o option for ISO filesystem support
to enable/disable Joliet extensions, which is a
Microsoft extension to ISO 9660 where long names
encoded using Unicode UCS-16 exist as a supplementary
volume in the ISO image and are used by Windows 95
and higher to support long filenames on CD-ROM.
Added support for reading the Joliet volume and
providing them for both the 8.3 and long filename
APIs in DOS. (joncampbell123).
Add IMGMOUNT -o option for ISO filesystem support
to enable/disable Rock Ridge long filename support.
The option is -o rr=1 to enable and -o rr=0 to
disable. (joncampbell123).
Fixed 8.3 name generations on ISO drives with Rock
Ridge extension. The ISO drives can be refreshed
via RESCAN command like other drives. (Wengier)
SDL_Net support is available for HX-DOS builds,
similar to other builds. Packet driver is needed
for network capability in DOS. (Wengier)
Fixed line endings when copying to shared clipboard
(e.g. CLIP$) in non-Windows platforms. (Wengier)
Fixed problems with SDL1 Windows builds in which
the user had to type the Fullscreen mapper shortcut
twice. It seems a SDL1 library function that is
used to indicate ignoring or adding a class of
events also liked to flush the event queue. This
is called on mode change. This caused lost
keystrokes, leaving the mapper the impression that
those keys were still held down. (joncampbell123).
Fixed PC-98 mode MS-DOS 7/Windows 9x boot disk's
80386 CPU check. (Wengier)
Added support for auto-converting non-image drives
(such as mounted local drives) to disk images, so
that they will be visible when booting into guest
systems. A config option "convertdrivefat" (in
[dosbox] section) is added to toggle this setting,
or you can toggle via BOOT command's -convertfat
(or -convertfatro option for read-only access) and
-noconvertfat options. There're also config options
"convert fat free space" (in [dosbox] section) and
"drive z convert fat" (in [dos] section) to control
free space (in MB; 0 means read-only) and whether
to also convert virtual drive Z:. Much of the code
is imported from DOSBox Pure, with added support
for PC-98 HDI and code page conversions. (Wengier)
Added menu option "Save to disk image" (under drive
letter in "Drive" menu) to save a mounted non-FAT
drive to selected disk image (IMG/HDI). (Wengier)
Added the "Limit disk transfer speed" menu group
(under "DOS") to toggle the hard & floppy disk data
rate function. Also moved "Quick launch program..."
menu from "DOS" menu to "Main" menu. (Wengier)
Added code pages 856 (Hebrew) and 859 (Latin 9) for
the guest-to-host code page conversions. (Wengier)
Added config option to allow create of temporary
devices for piping operations when a temporary DOS
path is not available. (Wengier)
Added support for ATAPI raw sector reading with
READ CD command. (schellingb)
Report bad sectors recorded in raw CD images as
ATAPI read errors. (schellingb)
You can use CONFIG -set langcp=... to change the
current language along with the embedded code page,
or CHCP nnn:... to specify a language file as well,
e.g. "CHCP 932:" or "CHCP 932:ja_JP" for Japanese
code page and language file. Also improved -langcp
option for SBCS code pages, and Windows installer
will additionally set keyboard layouts for the
selected languages. (Wengier)
Changed menu option "Restart DOSBox-X with language
file..." to "Load language file..." for loading
language files without rebooting DOSBox-X, unless
a guest system is currently running. (Wengier)
Imported the more recent MBR code from FreeDOS to
avoid the "boot menu" as in older code. (Wengier)
When changing TTF font, DOSBox-X will try to show
the number of missing characters in the new TTF
font (if any). (Wengier)
Fixed color becoming darker after changing TTF font
multiples times in TTF output. (Wengier)
Fixed display of individual/total file sizes with
DIR command when they are very large. (Wengier)
Fixed non-US code page conversions for mounted FAT
drives. (Wengier)
Fixed incorrect message displays in Configuration
Tool and Mapper Editor when booting into guest
systems with language files. (Wengier)
Fixed possible "Path not found" bug when switching
to code page 950 from another code page. (Wengier)
Fixed creating directories may not work properly
for overlay drives on Windows systems. (Wengier)
Fixed -set and -get options of CONFIG command when
there are spaces in property names, without having
to prepend the section names. For example, command
CONFIG -get "synchronize time" is supported just
as CONFIG -get "dosbox synchronize time". Similar
for -SET option when launching DOSBox-X. (Wengier)
