Emulating ASYLUM.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 386 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 Gravis Ultrasound 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.


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

THE ASYLUM BBS AD ======================== Rex Deathstar is proud to present yet another intro AD... Few weeks has passed since my last intro AD, which was done for the I-Chi-Ban BBS...some people has told me that the smoke routine used in that intro was taken from a program called 'fire' which is quite true...I did adopt the technique from 'fire' just that I made some modification, jammed in 386 instructions to boost the perfomance, becoz the original routine could only update 8kb per frame (80x50*2), but in order to simulate a wall of smoke, a 300*50*2=30kb per frame update is neccesary...anyway, enough of that crap... THE ASYLUM AD may not be the most original intro around, as the starfield and 3D vectors has appeared in many, if not all other demos from other demo groups, but I'm proud to say that all the routines has been created from scratch by myself. And you must have noticed the way the text is presented, if you have been going thru the demos before 1992, you will know that this particle system text morphing is used by Future Crew's FISHTRO and THEPARTY intros... And the font I used is extracted from a font editing package called FONTEDIT 1.0, and it's MERP.FNT. If you happen to have this font package, you can copy the font files to REX.FNT and viola! You have a new font is the intro! But be forewarned, some fonts in the package DOES NOT work, for some mysterious reasons... BTW, this intro is made initially in Borland C, and when the overall feel has been achieved, I hand-converted it to 100% assembly and optimized it to run at 60-70 frames per second (depending on your VGA) on a 486DX-33. Since I don't have a 386 machine, I do not know how it runs on a 386, but I think it should run fine (50+ fps) after all the optimisations done! Well, that's about all I can say on this little intro... hope you enjoy it! ---------------------------------------------- Intros I have released so far...: RAGEFIRE.ZIP (a replica of fire, adapted from 'fire', 386+ only) REXINTRO.ZIP (Introduces myself, Rex Deathstar, as a new graphics coder in the scene...386+ only, uses VangelisTracker and supports SB,SBPro) BTW, ShellVT is real slow! ICHIBAN.ZIP (My first BBS AD intro, used to the routine in RAGEFIRE, but used purple smoke palette, 386+ only) ASYLUM.ZIP (This is what you looking at now...) My next BBS intro will be for ANARCHY ONLINE BBS, watch for it! Will feature a simulated TRUECOLOR double static plasma in 360x480 MODE-X, and of course, a MOD player!
