Dapplegrey gives you the ability to configure DOSBox without having to use the Terminal or edit the configuration file manually. The configuration file, which will be sent to DOSBox, will be written just before Dapplegrey tells DOSBox to start.
What's New
Version 4.2.4:
  • Finds more *.ICO files than 4.2.3, but again, this takes effect for the first time in Dapplegrey 5 later this year.
  • When adding games, the Drive C:œ Folder selection dialog now starts with the last selected folder by default, instead of the documents folder used before.
  • Also changed in the Add Games window, the default setting of browsing to a game by folder or by DOS application is now set to folder. This has been changed because of Mavericks which needs a while to display the content of a folder. Now, just browse to the folder and you're done. After adding a game, set the DOS application you want to run the game with, by using the žDrive C: settings dialog.

Any time you have this problem, go to the developer's web site. They have multiple places to download it from. If one doesn't work for whatever reason, another will.

I'm wondering why no one has given any stars to this software.

One thing that I like about Dapplegrey over Boxer, is that Dapplegrey allows me to easily tune the DOSBox session.

As yet, I've not found an easy way to do that with Boxer.

Boxer is an attractive and easy way of launching the games, but as different games make different requirements demands of the processor, graphic cards and audio hardware Dapplegrey gives me the customisability that I need.

The fantastic thing about Boxer, on the other hand, is that it's already preconfigured to optimal settings for many popular DOS games. No need to mess around with any settings.

It's still very possible to tweak your per-game settings and much easier to do so (than Dapplegrey) with the upcoming 1.0 release.

Dapplegrey certainly has its place but Boxer is really the most user-friendly frontend for DOSBox.

The problem with Boxer is that it hasn't been updated in half a year, is still tied to the old and much less nice Dosbox .72. I like the interface of Boxer better, but Dapplegrey is updated like every other week.

As of the 10th, Boxer now uses DOSBox 0.73.

(Not to hijack Dapplegrey's comments section, but...) Boxer is still in active development and as Foofoorabbit observed, recent betas now include DOSBox 0.73 - however, an official release is still some time away, and the betas lack niceties like localisation and rigorous testing. You can follow Boxer beta versions from the blog on the Boxer website.

Has anyone tried this and compared it to "Boxer"?

No other DOSBox front-end holds a candle to Boxer. Boxer is bar none the best. And while the efforts from other developers are valiant, at the end of the day, Boxer still has the right idea -- making the Finder the actual front-end.

I don't want to rain on the Dapplegrey developer's parade (afterall, I'm sure some people like the Dapplegrey launcher), but there's something a lot more sexy about letting users create their own game bundles complete with icon and documentation, launched from the Finder.

I really love this app, and have been using it for a while. The one thing I have to say I would like to see you package it in a dmg rather than a zip as its easyer to deal with on my windows boxx (witch is where I sometimes download the newest verison from), Other than that love the app, wish you made a Windows/Linux version of the app! :)

Nice Dosbox GUI. The interface is a bit messy but it really gets the job done. Dapplegrey also has the simple merit of being in active development. Most of the other GUIs don't see a lot of updates these days.
