It’s cool, but no phone support yet. Games themselves run on my phone fast enough.

Dosbox works just fine on Android. No idea about iPhone.

Works great on Linux-based handhelds, too.

Does it also work with iPadOS 17? Because I tried Fallout 1/Diablo 1 once in the browser and it would not work :(

Wow I remember playing lost vikings in my uncle’s desktop when I was a kid

I don’t know where they get off skipping Commander Keen Episodes 2 & 3. Literally unplayable!

This is pretty much my childhood… Love it! :o

Is there a way to turn the web page into something like a desktop app?

If it’s a PWA yeah, there should be an install button in the hamburger menu of your browser

So... DOSBox?

lol yes, actually! Thank you. (This steam deck is the first non-mac computer I've had since my Dad's old DOS computer, and I've been too busy with life to actually try and figure some of this stuff out. I assume it's all probably fundamental to you, but not to me yet.)

So you can just the link to that page (in a browser) via “add a non Steam Game” to your steam deck?
