DOSBox Megabuild 5 for Intel Mac OS X

Postby thedoctor45 » 2010-10-03 @ 19:44

With h-a-l-9000's help I've recently been able to compile a standalone OSX build of his MB5 and I've decided to post it here in case any other Mac users are interested in its features.

DOSBox MB5 is based on CVS of 2009/09/13 and adds several new features, printing to a file amongst them.

Ah yes, and obviously don't annoy anybody else with questions about unsupported or strange builds.

I have reuploaded the build and updated the links since I found a problem with a missing library that needed to be fixed.
People who were experiencing difficulties with launching the app should redownload.
