EmuCR: DOSBoxDOSBox SVN r4191 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:
Only standard 3-byte mouse data packets are supported, so return an error for other packet sizes. MS Mouse driver versions 9.X and later use 1-byte packets for some obscure reason, and now they won't load instead of messing up.
Reset followed by switch to UART mode should take some time; fixes MPU detection in F29 Retaliator and Hover Force. Also minimize reset delay, which helps with MPU detection at higher cycles in games that prefer less delay, such as Bureau 1...
Correct relative track length in subchannel data for CD-ROM images; fixes speech audio cutting off too soon in Casino Tournament of Champions.
Acknowledge mouse interrupt before entering user routine; fixes sound stutter during mouse movement in Eye of the Beholder III and Casino Tournament of Champions. Clear button counters in the mouse driver reset function; prevents unintended...
Implement timer 2 output on port 61h; fixes SB detection in Abaron. Also implement port 62h with timer 2 output for CGA and Hercules machine types; fixes Frank Bruno's Boxing and Math Maze.
CMOS equipment list startup display mode bits differ from BIOS on EGA/VGA; fixes Sauro.
Make feature checks consistent, include right header for memset, correct one off error in paging table size compare for when not using USE_FULL_TLB (jmarsh)
