Emulating PLAY.COM in DOSee.

Use these tabs to make adjustments to the emulation

If the emulation is taking too long to load, you can turn it off.

Applying changes will reload the page and reboot the emulator





Changes are not applied until the browser tab is reloaded





DOS programs need a keyboard for user input
Some common keys used in DOS programs

ENTER ↵ to select or continue
ESC to navigate back or exit
←→ ↑↓ are often used to navigate menus


Emulation too slow?
Set the emulator to use maximum CPU speed
Need to turn off the audio?
Disable sound card support

Have no audio?
  1. Try SoundBlaster 1.0 hardware
  2. Try Covox Sound Master hardware
  3. The song or audio file maybe missing from the program
  4. Audio may not be supported
    Unlike other systems of the era, audio for DOS was unfortunately complicated for both programmers and end users alike. A lot of early scene software didn't bother including it. While those that did often didn't test it on all the hardware they supposedly supported.


Want to hack around in the DOS prompt?
  1. Mount the DOS tools drive with automatic run program turned off
  2. Then dir u: to list the utilities, some included programs 4dos.com cp.exe acidview.exe pictview.exe
  3. Use mount to list the emulated drives
  4. Learn the DOSBox commands

DOSee pronounced dos/see, is our emulator used to run MS-DOS based software in your web browser.

MS-DOS (Microsoft DOS) was the primary operating system used by PCs during the 1980s to the early 1990s and is the precursor to Microsoft Windows.


DOSee is a slimmed down, modified port of The Emularity.

The Emularity is a multi-platform JavaScript emulator that supports the running of software for legacy computer platforms in a web browser. It is the same platform that's running emulation on the Internet Archive.

EM-DOSBox is a discontinued, high-performance JavaScript port of DOSBox that is applied by The Emularity for its emulation of the MS-DOS platform.

DOSee uses BrowserFS ZipFS and ZipFS Extras to simulate zip file archives as hard disks within EM-DOSBox.

DOSBox is the most popular MS-DOS emulator in use today and is frequently used by commercial game publishers to run games from their back-catalogues on modern computers.


DOSee, built on The Emularity, EM-DOSBox and DOSBox. Capture screenshot and save function built on canvas-toBlob.js.

How to run DESTROYER without a key disk in drive A: ****************************** WELCOME to the world of hassle free computing. By using the inclosed program PLAY.COM, you can enjoy a good game from the folks at EPYX from a hard disk without bothering with a floppy. Now you can store your games in an ARCived format to save space and un-ARC them as needed. Using PLAY.COM is as easy as 1, 2, 3. No debug scripts, no butchered (hacked) copies of the game. 1 Using the DOS copy command, copy the files from your backup diskette or your original diskette to a disk and directory of your choice. (Programs like COPYIIPC will make backup diskettes.) You are responsible for obeying the copywrite laws. This system is not for pirating software! 2 Next, copy PLAY.COM to the same directory. 3 Finally, go to the directory and just type: PLAY (and a carriage return). Notice that no modifications are made to your disk files, and you don't have to mess around with the original code. PLAY.COM acts as a eavesdropper when you are playing the game. When the game asks you computer for the secret key words from drive A:, PLAY.COM intercepts the message and responds to the questions with the correct answers. ******** ENJOY! ******* From the Mad Hacker. ****** You may freely (for free) distribute these 2 files, but keep them together. →♀
