Boxer 1.3.2

Run DOS programs from Finder. Wrap your games into elegant packages that launch like a Mac app. Painlessly install games from CD--then bundle the CD with your game so you don't even need it in the drive.

Don't struggle with mounts and emulation settings; don't nurse a greedy games database; don't bang your head against a DOS prompt; just play your games. Boxer takes away the fuss and leaves the fun.

Mac Games Fixes and Changes

Version 1.3.2:

* Developer-signed for OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion's Gatekeeper.
* Improved configurations for Battlespire, Blood and Alien Incident.
* Fixed The 7th Guest being incorrectly detected as playing MT-32 music when set up for General MIDI.
* Improved mouse-locking to unlock properly when activating Exposé or the Cmd+Tab app switcher, and to prevent locking over the menu or dock when in fullscreen.
* Fixed extra drives appearing in drives list when running a duplicated gamebox.
* Fixed DOS window getting resized incorrectly when there was insufficient screen space to show the window at its minimum size.

DOSBox is great but can be really mac unfriendly. Boxer is the solution: great macosx integration and look&feel. Huge improvements are coming too: I found a 1.0alpha version on the developer's blog and that's just sweet!
Mac Games Rating Xoviet chiK (10/29/2008 - version 0.8)
Great app. CD based games still have a few issues (probably DOSBox itself), but it's so slick and performs so well that it's hard to fault it. A lot of great ideas here too, that I'd love to see expanded and other developers make use of.
