Yes, I really miss a AmigaOS version, there was one for v0.58 and was
really nice :)

With DosBox on Pegasos2 it's possible to play with alot of Dos4Gw gamess too!
Also on Pegasos G3 it go quite fast ... and it's cool to use TurboPascal 7 under the box

Nah... DOSBox is in Windows and Linux version and it's much faster because SDL library on this systems is faster (I hope not long:)). Use it on real PC is IMHO a little stupid.

Maybe I could compile AOS 68k version but I don't have a cross compiler. If you have it I will send you source code.

So far, I've managed to isntall and run:
Crusader: No Remorse, Magic Carpet, Star Wars Rebel Assault II, Alley Cat (yay!), Loom CD.

Crusader and Magic Carpet are mind boggingly slow on a Peg 1 G3. ;) Loom CD works, but without the CD audio track. I managed to install Mechwarrior 2 and Fade to Black but I'm not mounting the cd properly. :(

It's pretty neat. This version actually likes SFS partitions too.

Now if I can get it to mount a CDrom correctly so I can get full support...

Not really if like most people you have a new pc that doesn't have ISA soundcards or SB emulation that works. DosBox in this case allows you to play those old DOS games like Turrican, Cannon Fodder 1/2 etc and to be able to see and hear the sounds/music.

I wanted to say that using DOSBox on emulated Amiga is stupid, not on Windows or Linux.

It will be difficult because maybe problem exists in powersdl.library but I will look into DOSBox and check it.

Well, I find it handy to be able to run old DOS apps directly on a window
in AmigaOS. I don't want to boot in Windows or use MS-DOS.

Oh well, bugger this, I will use the old version of DosBox if you're
so negative about it...
