Emulating SBUSTORI.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 will not be applied until this browser tab has been refreshed





DOS programs need a keyboard for user input

ENTER โ†ต to select or continue
ESC to navigate back or exit
โ†โ†’ โ†‘โ†“ 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 8086 CPU configuration
Experiencing graphic or animation glitches?
Set the emulator to use VGA only graphics configuration
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 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.

 โ–  Introduction

   Stick-Buster is the first program created, to open ALL shrinkers,
   encryptors, stickers and intros (SESI from now on). The full list is in
   the bottom of this document. Version 2.40 opens 35 different types of
   SESIs (not including the subtypes, of course).

   Stick-Buster will create a file, that is almost similar in it's size to
   the original file (usually a maximum of 1-2K difference), regardless of
   unused areas of the EXE file, such as it's header. (PKLite for example,
   stores it's original file's characteristics there, but stick-buster
   ignores it, and still opens that file).

 โ–  Usage

   โ”‚ Sbust.EXE โ”‚ Options โ”‚Source_File[.COM | .EXE] โ”‚ Destination_File[.EXE] โ”‚
   โ””โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”ดโ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”ดโ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”ดโ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”€โ”˜

   Because of the chance that the destination file won't work, I decided
   to still not allow to override the original EXE / COM file.

   The registered version of Stick-Buster 2.11, now allows you to remove
   the main file instead of the sticked file, when you remove Message
   Stickers or Ady's Glue. 

   A new option was added to Stick-Buster in version 2.11, that is used to
   display all known programs that Stick-Buster finds. To use it simply
   type: sbust -l

   Stick-Buster version 2.40 operates on COM files as well as EXE file.
   The destination file is always EXE.

         โ–  DAMAGE Inc. โ–  Additional note:

         if you like stick-buster why not send the author a little
         contribution ? (5 NIS) we have found recently that stick-buster is
         MUCH MUCH MUCH better than Xopen;  Xopen is full of bugs and
         sometimes gives "GENERIC ERROR" while stick-buster NEVER fails.
