Download dosbox-staging 0.75.0 (dmg)
Compatible only with macOS 10.15 (Catalina).
macOS uses its Gatekeeper feature to prevent users from running externally-hosted 3rd party software, such as dosbox-staging. See the section below to learn how to fix it.
The build is also available via Homebrew package.
brew install dosbox-staging
Development snapshot builds
You can always see what's cooking on the master branch :)
These builds might be slow or unstable as they are designed with developers and testers in mind: download instructions for snapshot builds.
§ Older builds
- dosbox-staging 0.75.0-rc1 (dmg) (macOS 10.15 or newer)
§ Apple Gatekeeper
Ctrl-click (or right-click) on dosbox-staging app, and select "Open". This time, Gatekeeper will show "Open" button like this:
Apple's Gatekeeper feature only permits the running of notarized software, one aspect of which involves developers making yearly payments to Apple.
As dosbox-staging is a volunteer effort, we are not in a position to make such payments and therefore ask users to bypass Apple's Gatekeeper manually.
Building from source
Of course you can always build dosbox-staging straight from the source. Send us patches if you improve something! :)
