  • Vale: What is DoxBox? I never heard of that site
  • Lloyd: It is an emulator software that simulates an IBM PC compatible computer which runs older operating systems. It is generally designed to run old applications/games.
  • Vale: How do you get Doxbox?
  • Lloyd: You can either search for other download sites, or, just by simply going to the official DosBox website to download.
  • Vale: Thanks!
  • Lloyd: No problem :)
