AmpShell v1.3.8

A lean and fast DOSBox frontend, for Windows

The purpose of AmpShell is to make you run games in DOSBox with a simple double click. It saves the time and trouble you can have with DOS commands.


None, as .NET 5 is used. The application is shipped as a single executable.
For legacy Windows users, .NET 2.0 is used and required.


Fast Startup
Hate having to wait for something? That's why AmpShell is simple and stupid - so it can bootup faster than you can say 'snap!'

No Install
AmpShell has no dependency, and therefore no installer.
Just download it, and you are ready to go.

DOSBox is automatically found, as is its configuration file.

Drag and Drop
You can create a new entry by dropping a file or link into the main window.

Portable Mode
This program can also be used on a removable media, no setup required. To that end, a 'Portable Pack' (AmpShell + DOSBox preconfigured) is also provided.

Multiple DOSBox support
The emulator we all know and love has a lot of variations out there (DOSBox SVN, ECE, SVN Daum, DOSBox-X, ...), so that's why you can use another DOSBox executable and config files on a per-game basis if you need to.

Command Line options
In this mode, AmpShell will launch the game, and exit. The GUI will be not shown.
-g to run a game (with its name or main executable path) -s to run its setup utility -v for verbosity

This download is for the version that will find and use a pre-installed DOSBox so you will need DOSBox to already be installed. Get DosBox here
