What works

Everything that I tested. I displayed a few files in the shell, and briefly played 3 games (Supaplex and OMF 2097 (which are freely available for download), and Magic Carpet 2).

Performance in terms of speed was similar to that of the native Linux port of DOSBox that I have (maybe this is because the processor I'm using is able to compensate). I ended up double-checking to make sure I really was running the Wine/Win32 version!

What does not

There was a slight glitch in the sound in Magic Carpet 2 in that it stopped playing after I changed the screen resolution in the options menu (not normal behaviour for me when running this game natively in DOSBox) -- I consider this to be a less common boundary case, so I'll keep with the platinum rating.

Some fixme warnings/errors on shell when installing, but they didn't seem to affect the ability of the program to install:


What was not tested

Lots of stuff... DOSBox is an x86 DOS emulator, so it's pretty hard to make sure that everything works as intended. However, I consider the things I did test to be a reasonable demonstration of its use.
