Assuming you are not a troll.

If you want help then you need to provide details.

1. Post exactly what you are trying to do with text and/or images.
2. Where are you downloading DOSBox from?
3. How are you installing DOSBox?
4. How are you launching DOSBox?
5. What commands are you using inside DOSBox?

If the next post is the same as the prior posts then the thread will be locked.

Just for future reference you mean macOS Catalina, iOS is for the iphones.
And nothing in useability changed much with Catalina (except 32bit apps don't work anymore)

i updated my MacBook to Catalina and it won't work it used to work with my last iOS

just tried to down load boxer and it won't let me install it

Yes, just like I said above. The official Boxer distribution is not compatible with Catalina, due to the removed 32 bit support.

The version I linked above should be 64 bit compatible, from what I gather. I built it myself. However, you have to right click to open it. Otherwise the macOS gatekeeper will disallow running it, since I don't have a valid macOS developer account for signing binaries. Please try right clicking and selecting open and acknowledge in the dialog that pops up then that you REALLY want to run Boxer.

last question can you get dosbox to work on a iPad

Good question. I know that DOSPad used to work (https://litchie.com/dospad). But I don't think this is up to date anymore. But you might check the AppStore if it is still available.

Oops, overlooked the newer answers. That's great. Did you use my binary?
