Dapplegrey is a frontend for the macOS DOSBox port (which is available on the official DOSBox website) written in Xojo.
In case you use already DBGL, Staging, or SVN build versions, these ports can also be used as DOSBox source to run games with.
Dapplegrey enables you to set options provided by DOSBox, instead of editing the DOSBox config file manually for each game you want to run.
The config file sent to DOSBox will be written to hard disk drive just before Dapplegrey tells DOSBox to start.

If you see the Spinning Beachball while running DOSBox & Dapplegrey, do the following:

If both applications, DOSBox and Dapplegrey, does not respond for a while, go to the Apple Menu and call the window "Force Quit Applications".

This window can be also opened with Command+Option+Escape. If both applications together are marked with "(not responding)", so simply force quit DOSBox alone, but not Dapplegrey:

  1. Select the application DOSBox
  2. Click "Force Quit" or press the return key to confirm this command

Dapplegrey will be re-animated automatically shortly after force quitting DOSBox.

Dapplegrey may be mirrored at any download sites, with no permission required.

Hint: If DOSBox quits immediately after being started, do not use a language file,
which is intened to translate the internal text output of DOSBox.
