DSx86 does not have an inbuilt command interpreter (or shell), so you need to also download a DOS program that provides the command shell features. Currently the only supported shell is 4DOS version 7.50, freeware by Rex Conn & JP Software. The only file you absolutely need is the 4DOS.COM program, but if you have space on your SD card you can download the auxiliary files as well.
The recommended place to put these files on your SD card is /data/dsx86/4dos/ directory, but also /data/dsx86/, /4dos/ and root directory will work.
|ftp://jpsoft.com/4dos/files/||JP Software's FTP site. Select the files you want.|
|4dos750b130.exe||Windows installer for the whole package. NOTE! Unless you want to install 4DOS on your PC, do not run the installer, instead use any unzip utility to extract the separate files from this archive.|
See the DSx86 Compatibility WIKI for the most up-to-date list of games currently working in DSx86.
