Yes, I used DOSBox because it keeps the original 256-colour palette. Also in fact the latest registered version of Executor seems to yield the best performance results with the Warcraft Demo (with the exception of the wrong palettes that is).

Recently I discovered LairWare's shareware Macintosh port of Ultima III, and it runs fine in Executor, even in DOSBox:

I've tested this with v1.3 available from the archived copy of Lairware's website. The port features high-resolution graphics, animation and sound effects, also optional music. The unregistered shareware version allows to play freely except you can't enter the land of Ambrosia.
