Since version 1.4 the Galaxy trilogy is supported including some mods like keen 7-9 unofficial. They will also eventually add all modification tools possible, making this the ultimate way to create mods of the original games as well. Also with the Dosbox fusion engine, which is Dosbox on steroids it will be possible to play any game on CG.

The DOSBox Fusion Engine is disabled since requests by main developers of the original project. It can build with that support enabled though.

Mod Support

Keep in mind that the list contains mods that are playable with both the Galaxy and Vorticon internal engine. The Dosbox Fusion engine will be able to play any mod without limitations, since nearly any DOS game will be running. If it will be supported, is another thing, but as pure dosbox environment it runs. We're are working on special support an easier access.
