i think if you have it set up properly it brings you to a command prompt and launches the game from there. haven't used it in a while, but check the wiki and give it another shot. it's a little tougher to set up than other software. have you tried it with a game though? put the game in its own folder, and make sure you make a dosbox config file and a keymap file for that game, then run a script that launches dosbox with those files as arguments.

again, just going from (sloppy) memory here.

It works but its pretty much useless.
Naaa, it's not. You can play Alter Ego with it, as long as it doesn't work on any C64 emulator, it's better than nothing :)
