Emulating VERSES.EXE in DOSee.

Use these tabs to make adjustments to the emulation


Gravis Ultrasound audio settings, port 240 IRQ 5 DMA 1

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
Emulation too fast?
Set the emulator to use the 386 CPU configuration
Need to turn off the audio?
Disable sound card support

Have no audio?
  1. Try SoundBlaster 16 hardware
  2. The song or audio file maybe missing from the program
  3. 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.

We feel that the concept of a distribution site has lost its meaning altogether: the relationship between a group and a BBS usually benefits neither. Back in the old days, a board used to be a site for only one or two groups, and a group only had a few sites, which they actually called every now and then to upload their new releases. Also the sysops used to call the WHQ to grab the new stuff. Back then the Internet was unheard-of: modem trading and distribution sites actually had an important use! Nowadays there's no need to call around the globe to get new demos - if you don't have access to ftp, then you at least know someone from your area who does. Furthermore, we think that all demos that aren't complete crap will get circulated well enough even without specific distribution sites. Most boards get all released productions anyway. There are numerous good reasons against having distros, but the most important for us is the fact that the status of a distribution site has practically *no meaning whatsoever* to a sysop. Most of the demo oriented boards today are sites for dozens of different groups; it's obvious that the contact between the sysop and the groups is minimal, often non-existent. Hell, the sysops don't even bother to tell when their board goes down for good! A group has no way to control if their 50+ sites are even working, not to mention keeping track of changing phone numbers, modem speeds, etc. In short, their distro list will soon be outdated and of no use to anyone. To keep the list up-to-date someone needs to spend a lot of his time and money. This, along with the unbearable amount of distro applications, is the main reason why we decided to forget the whole thing. Shortly put: it's too much work for almost nothing! ═══════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════ ─────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── ══[ ZIP comment attached to emf_vrs2.zip ]══ $$$$$α o$$$$o .o$ $ ░& Θ$░ ░ o░ $░ $ $ $░ ΦΘΘΦ $░ $░ α$░ $$ o$░ $$$$$$$$░ ░$$$$$$ &$$&
