Dosbox Games Guide

Play old DOS games in Linux!

Dosbox Games Guide

Dosbox in Linux (specifically Mint 13) makes it easy to play Doom, Warcraft & Duke Nukem.... just to name a few.

Actually there are hundreds of old DOS games and most are free to download.

Follow my Tutorial to easily setup, install and make shortcuts for all of your DOS games.

In my tutorial you will learn:
1. Installing Dosbox native to Linux
2. Creating custom .conf to launch your game in a single click
3. Creating a custom menu to keep all of your games in the same place.
