hello, i guess you see im a newbee on the forums by the post count.
so i d like to request DOSBox archived on your oldversion.com. the program itself emulates dos system on nowdays NT machines and makes some old application and games available to run.

unfortunately, each version differs in kind of CPU emulating, to improve the program, and sometimes with older version you will be able to run some games which you wont in newer ones (or games might have sound issues or joystick issues)

so i would like to request to DOSBox, it would be realy very useful for abandonware community

so, to use your 'request form'

Program Name: DOSBox
Website: dosbox.sourceforge.net
Current version: 0.70
Desired versions: any older
Description: virtual ms-dos machine

Well since it's on SourceForge, all older versions are kept there ... you just have to look a little closer.

For example here : http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=52551&package_id=46709

Thus I'm not sure it's really pertinent to host them here too... unless if you consider sourceforge might close someday (now THAT would be bad ;( ).

first of all thanks for your reply
i was thinking it would be better to have it hosted on more servers since people in some countries would maybe have problems with reaching it from one place. for me personaly it sometimes takes quite long time to access source forge servers and sometimes i get time outs
