Shedbuilt's Shareware Palooza images provide everything you need to transform a $10 single-board computer into a DOS retrogaming powerhouse. We've taken care of the tweaks necessary for a great DOSBox experience - all you need to do is flash an SD card, plug in a monitor and clicky keyboard and get down to business.
Built using the latest SVN revision of DOSBox with various performance and compatibility improvements.
We've taken care of configuration so you can get right down to gaming.
Our images are free to download and can run on SBCs costing as little as $10.
Built on top of the hackable, ARM-native Shedbuilt Linux distribution.
Right out of the box, Shedbuilt Shareware Palooza is filled to bursting with DOS gaming goodness. A total of 22 shareware and freeware classics are pre-installed and ready for action. Drop in your own games to complete your DOS nostalgia battlestation!
Thanks to Jason Carr's LaunchBox for MS-DOS Special Edition 2.0, jumping into any of the pre-installed classics is as easy as selecting a menu item. You can sort titles by genre, developer or release year and adding your own games is a breeze.
The enhanced DOOM source port Crispy Doom is pre-installed and configured to play the shareware episode, Knee Deep in the Dead. Just type
crispy-doom into the Linux command prompt to enjoy the most influential PC game of all time or
crispy-doom-setup to set up a multiplayer game. Can you host a LAN party with a handful of $10 SBCs and an Ethernet switch? You sure can, and it's awesome.
Shareware Palooza images based on Shedbuilt System 2 are available for a variety of budget ARMv7/v8 single-board computers from FriendlyElec, Shenzhen Xunlong, and Shenzhen Libre Technology. Please visit our download page to select the appropriate image for your board.
