DOSBox
« on: May 03, 2007, 03:54:22 AM »
This thread is about the DOS emulator, which can be found here:

www.dosbox.com

What is it? It runs all your old DOS games in a virtual machine, which allows you to play your old-time favourites even though you're at Windows 2000/XP/2003 (*snicker) / Vista / Linux / Mac / Whatever.

I have already been using it for over 2 years now, but with the latest release, 0.70, I suddenly noticed how fucking smooth everything runs. :o I actually have been able to play through Tekwar for a while (until I got bored lol)

I also tested a emulated IPX connection between two DOSBOX sessions on my laptop and my computer, and played some ROTT against myself. Just awesome. I guess the old duke3d.exe, sw.exe, and blood.exe files shouldn't run painfully either anymore. (But that's for later)

Gonna try the modem emulation sometime soon too. If interesting enough, I'll post some screenshots. I always wanted to know how it would feel like firing the 'SERIAL GAME' button in the setup executables of the old BUILD games. :)

I use DOSBox for all the Build games besides Duke3D, WWII GI and NAM. It works great with Blood :)

I think it can be used to play build games online in cooperation with Hamachi. Would be awesome to play RR Rides Again on DM with all the vehicles  ^_^

The recently released version 0.70 works really well for games like DN3D. (y)
