    Updated DOSBox on both of my computers. No noticable change with the games I play. Still prefer the real thing on my old Win95 laptop.

    Does Dosbox support old glide games? I remember reading somewhere (a long time ago) support might be implemented in the future.

    I did used to play Tomb Raider and some other old Dos games in Glidos but that doesn’t work on 64bit Windows.
