Has anyone tried copying the files to DosBox for the Mac? I know they have games specifically setup for the mac, but I have bought many older games that only come with the Windows setup.

Love the Mac.

I love the Mac. I still have a PC for hard-core gaming, although I haven't used it in a year.

I could see...

I could check it out as the DOSBox folder structure containing the game can be isolated on the PC side of things.

Well...

LOL! Mac is a real pc, unlike anything you may have experienced. Stick with your ColecoVision! JK.

Thanks for the help.

Mac? isnt that a type of truck with a bulldog on the front? :) J/K I don't have a Mac, so cant assist. but If you own the game from GOG I would think grabbing a "torrent" copy and using it with Dos Box on a MAC would be ok (only reason to do this is you know you ahve the core files you need and not exta GOG stuff.. that is if trust the torrent).. you own own it legit. I must be honest i never looked at GOG install as they have all worked so there has been no reason to dig in. but you have me wondering, if i was home I would sure look. Its just a version of Dos Box, so i would guess the core files could be moved.. interesting question.
