Because I’m pathologically incapable of doing a simple bugfix update, I also slipped in a new feature: a simulated numeric keypad to help out players with Macbooks or Apple Wireless Keyboards. In a nutshell:
If you don’t want to hold down Fn all the time, you can also toggle the numpad behaviour on and off with Cmd+U or
I’ve also (re)introduced paste-to-DOS, which had been around in pre-1.0 versions but was cut for being too buggy. You can now paste single or multiple lines of text at the DOS prompt, letting you easily enter command sequences and complicated paths.
In a future release I'll expand this feature to let you paste text into any DOS application - I can see that coming in really handy for text editors and parser-driven games.
Finally, after some constructive pushback in the comments for the 1.2.1 release, I’ve also reverted Boxer’s default location for the games folder back to [your home folder]/DOS Games/. I appreciate better now how many users regard the Documents folder as sacrosanct—unfortunately, OS X is pretty short on good places to put the-kind-of-objects-that-game-ROMs-are. (This will probably be revisited again when Boxer goes through app store submission, which will be Real Soon Now I Promise.)
