63MB of RAM is way too much for most DOS games. In fact, some old games might refuse to run if they detect such high amounts of memory. Also, 12000 cycles is too much for Mechwarrior.

DOSBox-0.74 with the default settings (except for the mpu401=uart) should run Mechwarrior without any problems.

Ctrl+F9 will kill DOSBox.
