Version 5.4.3 | Release Date: 2015-08-30 | Download

In some circumstances, Dapplegrey still losts the Games List content. When a copy of the Games List is available, the Games List will be restored immediately, which results in the message „The Games List has been restored“, when Dapplegrey starts. Until now, it was up to the user to save a copy of the Games List. Yet, if Dapplegrey starts and it does not find a copy of the games list, it will be saved automatically now (assumed the games list is still intact, though).

Remembers custom drive C: setting within the Toolbox Games now.

Version 5.4.2 | Release Date: 2015-08-22 | Download

The menu item "Run this game with..." has been rmvd from the "OSBox" toolbar item, because it caused the bouncing beach ball if called from within the User´s games list. This Option was seen as a simplified version of the "Drives" -> "Drive C:" setting, which is recommended instead.

Version 5.4.1 | Release Date: 2015-08-12 | Download

The Game Info Window, where you can set the game informations like category, developer, publisher, and so on, displays the correct *.ICO file now, if such a file for the current entry is available at all. If a game comes with a number of *.ICO files the icon to be displayed can be set with the menu item command "Icon file to be displayed" found in the Games menu item.

Version 5.4 | Release Date: 2015-08-02 | Download
In the "Application Support" Area of Dapplegrey, deleting files has been revisited a bit.

The user-made DOSBox Applescripted Wrapper port found at "A self-contained DOSBox system for OS X" at VOGONs will be recognized, too. But be aware, the internals of this AppleScripted DOSBox version doesn’t work from within Dappegrey. With Dapplegrey, you can use this port as usual to run games you’ve added to the Dapplegrey’s Games List.

This version enables again the "Kill DOSBox" menu item found in the "DOSBox" menu of Dapplegrey.

Version 5.2 | Release Date: 2015-03-01 | Download

No longer mixes the games listings when the user enters the Return key while editing game descriptions or AUTOEXEC.BAT lines.
Restoring and Saving copies of the User’s Games list has been revisited. Dapplegrey no longer delete the User’s Games list originated in version 4.x , but offers this list in the Restore dialog now as well.
Selected keyboard layout will be used now. Previous 5.x versions had not set the keyboardlayout to the one the user selected before. Does still not work with the Daum build, tho’.

Recognizes the new DOSBox Daum Build dated Jan 3, 2015, which can be found at http://ykhwong.x-y.net

Adds a new menu item in the DOSBox menu, „Open DOSBox in Finder“, which is useful if you see the Finder message about an „unidentified developer“ at the attempt to run DOSBox from within Dapplegrey. Use this menu item to open the DOSBox in the Finder, and run it once by using the Ctrl-Click method.
