If you ever emulate C64 or Ti-99/4A games, I'll be sure to notice.

I understand that those listed will show the tracking of where you've been, but I want to be sure that every DOS game I have will work with the gamelink since I have a lot of them thanks to GOG.
Yes any DOS game will work with Game Link and be playable within Grid Cartographer 4.
The system sends the video and input data between DOSBox and GC4 and doesn't know what you're playing. I've tried it with a bunch of games from GOG.com and elsewhere. It supports high-res VESA modes and joystick games like TIE Fighter.
For example, here's Blood:
However there are only certain games that will support automatically tracking the player. The list is currently:
* EYE OF THE BEHOLDER
* FORGOTTEN REALMS - UNLIMITED ADVENTURES
* MIGHT AND MAGIC
* MIGHT AND MAGIC II
* MIGHT AND MAGIC III (coming in next version)
* POOL OF RADIANCE
* WIZARDRY 6
.. and I have plans to support even more games (and eventually other emulated systems) in future v4.x updates.
For old RPGs that I don't support you can still benefit from Grid Cartographer 4. The ability to play games side by side with the map is still incredibly useful even if you have to 'count steps' to draw the map. In fact several people asked me to add an option that disabled auto-tracking so that they could draw the map without 'cheating'
