eXoDOS is a DOS emulator for games. I have not used it.

http://exodos.the-eye.us/

Welcome to eXoDOS Version 4.0!

eXoDOS is an attempt to catalog, obtain, and make playable every game developed for the DOS and PC Booter platform. Striving to find original media rather than using scene rips. This collection uses a combination of Dosbox and ScummVM to play these older titles on modern systems. All required emulators are included and have been setup to run all included titles with no prior knowledge or experience required on the users part.

This pack includes 7,000 DOS games. The focus is on games that were either released in English or are fairly easy to play without a knowledge of the native language. This is not every DOS game ever made, however it is a very high percentage of all commercial releases. There are thousands of freeware, homebrew, and shareware games that will continue to be added in future packs.

The games have already been configured to run in DosBOX. Games which are supported by ScummVM will give you the option at launch as to which emulator you would like to use.

I got this from 'One Man's Quest To Collect Every Classic PC Game In Existence'

https://kotaku.com/one-mans-quest-to-collect-every-classic-pc-game-in-exis-1839432488

It takes several hours to download, YMMV.

The games are in the metadata files; you have to download the whole shebang and run setup.bat, then Launchbox. Read the eXoDOS Manual.pdf for details.

To clarify, the games themselves are in /exodos/games on the web site; the metadata dosbox and Launchbox need are in the !dosmetadata.zip and XODOSMetadata.zip files. The file names in the PDF are slightly different than on the web site.

When my download finishes I'll try to install and run it.
