Works With 0.74 (2017-03-08 06:04) tooly111
Game works perfect in 0.74. You just have to disable the mouse driver otherwise it will crash on a black screen. To remove the mouse driver use mouseoff.com which can be found here:
http://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?p=143507&highlight=mouse#143507Run%20%22MOUSEOFF%22%20before%20playing%20the%20game.

So turn the mouse driver off before loading the game file. ie. type:
mouseoff.com
buster.exe

These are some of the main settings I used:
[sdl]
fullscreen=true
fulldouble=false
fullresolution=original
windowresolution=original
output=ddraw
autolock=true
sensitivity=100
waitonerror=true
usescancodes=true
priority=higher,normal
mapperfile=mapper-0.74.map

[dosbox]
machine=svga_s3
captures=Captures
memsize=16

[render]
frameskip=0
aspect=true
scaler=normal2x

[cpu]
core=auto
cputype=auto
cycles=auto
cycleup=10
cycledown=20
This game works fine in DOSBox 0.74 ! (2013-01-24 11:08) coolhaken
This game will crash If there is a mouse driver loaded in memory
but no "Mouse System Serial Mouse" detected.
We know DOSBox doesn't support that actual.
So it works fine if "Turn Off" the mouse driver.
There is a small TSR named "MOUSEOFF" wrote by ripsaw8080 can be found here :

Run "MOUSEOFF" before playing the game.
0.70 and older only, and still not really playable (2011-08-27 23:23) barbarian_brother
On 0.73 or 0.74 Dosbox versions, game doesn't even load.
On 0.70 and older versions, game loads, and seems to run correctly but...only seems :
-score is freezed until you miss a ball (no refresh)
-yellow tokens don't lighten the weapons icons. You can't use bonuses.
