    Make sure you've increased the cycles per second to make Dosbox use more of your CPU. What happens is, as you increase cycles, lag decreases, until your CPU can't keep up, where your lag increases once again. Find that sweet spot and stick to it.

    I've already mentioned cpu cycles setting. Past that, all you can do is play SDL games.
