Emulating INTRO.EXE 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
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.


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

 Hi everyone!

 What you have here is the little intro I coded upon request by Miguel, sysop
of the world-famous BBS Blastersound. I did this in about 3 days, so don't
expect the best intro ever. Odds are that Miguel didn't like it (he wanted CDs
flying and morphing into characters to form the banners!), so I've decided to
place this code in the public domain, so that anybody can see the effect and
study the ASM code to produce it. So here you have the original intro, with an
info file (this!) to tell you some things.

 There are two things I would study in this intro, the rest is bullshit. The
first and most important is the Bresenham algorithm that drives the points. It
is an original idea of the Arevalo bros, slightly retouched. The fact that
makes it so amazing (at least to me) is that it uses a technique that achieves
not having to jump, wich speeds it up in a 80x86, and not having to
special-case lines of any kind: horizontal, vertical and pure diagonal lines
are handled by the very same code as the rest, that is completely bizarre to
see on a PC. And the other thing is a lot least interesting, but quite useful.
I learnt it from an introduction to starfields, by Draeden/VLA. It is a kind of
random numbers that are really shuffled numbers. Here, I use it to choose the X
coordinate of the points upon their creation. The result is nice, isn't it?

 So here you have. Do whatever you want with this font (it's PD, remember?),
but it would not be very nice to change just the text and use it for anything.
You know what courtesy is, I expect. The source code is here so that you learn
the techniques, mainly to spread the not-jumping-Bres by the Arevalo brothers,
of which I think it's, after the wheel, one of the great inventions of human
beings :-)

 So, you can see I got an alias, and that I've joined the great guys at Iguana.
I'll be working with them in the next demos :-) (Greetings to all o'them).

 Now, go! and start studying the source code!

 So long, and thanks for all the fish!
