    So recently, getting back into retro gaming, I found DOSPad. (http://litchie.net/) It's a DOS emulator for the iOS. With iPhone 5s coming out, gaming on emulators could easily become much more advanced. Essentialy, you can play games like Duke Nukem 3D, Doom, Heroes of Might and Magic, and even freaking Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall.
    Here is a video how to get it and how to install games on it:


    I'll update this thread in a bit with all the links and a tutorial for those who couldn't follow the video. Keep in mind, you have to be jailbroken, but who knows? Someome could smuggle a dos emulator in the app store too =D.

    Actually it's been smuggled in several times in the past! DOS box was ported in several different forms. Problem is that once Apple realizes that users can add their own games they throw the app out.

    Yeah, I suppose apple wont change their policies. But you can smuggle your own files in any app with iFunbox. Hacked saves etc. Whats the difference if it's a game for DOS?

    Because at the end of the day, it's just an emulator. And the majority of people who play emulators just grab ROMs off the internet instead of making their own backups. Hacked saves are not the same thing as loading 100 GameBoy Advanced ROMs which are still being sold on Nintendo's eShop.
