DOSBox is a DOS emulator that uses the SDL library. It emulates CPU:286/386 realmode/protected mode, Directory FileSystem/XMS/EMS, Tandy/Hercules/CGA/EGA/VGA/VESA graphics and SoundBlaster/Gravis Ultra Sound card.

Changes in MorphOS version:
- improved stability
- some speed increment

RunDOS is a tool which allow you to start DOS software by clicking on the icon on Ambient. Now you can set the option to quit DOSBox after quit from the program you started with RunDOS.

You can get the archives from here and here.

What kind of speed does it do with a Pegasos I 600Mhz? Does it reach the speed of a real 386?

One could guess it has something to do with what you're emulating..? :)

"RunDOS is a tool which allow you to start DOS software by clicking on the icon on Ambient."

Awesome! Something similar for UAE would be truly awesome as well :)

The speed depends on what you emulate...

The Settlers works nice on G4, it's playable even in svga (But the scrolling IS slow...)
Also Laser Squad, Lotus 3 and Skyroads work very nicely, and that's about all I've tried :-)

Stunts4D is fast, Need for Speed is slow on Peg I G3 600 if that helps you getting an idea :)

Has anyone bothered to inform the DOSBox people that (a) their links are broken, and (b) the Amiga68k version has been dropped?

At the moment, their information is wrong - presumably because no one has kept them informed regarding the port - and Amiga68k users end up looking all over the net for a version which does not exist.

Maybe you could follow up on this and contact the dosbox people.

In reply to Comment 8 (Golem):
I could, but all I would feel entitled to do is upload the old 68k port to Aminet - stating that it is no longer supported in the readme -, and contact the DOSBox people telling them their link is broken and should therefore be removed. I could also tell them about the old unsupported port having been uploaded to Aminet.

Since I'm neither a MorphOS user nor part of the porting team, I would not want to get involved in asking the DOSBox people to update their MorphOS port information. That's the job of the porting team, right?

That's the point I'm making: it's time for those who happily use open source to port to their OS, whatever OS that may be, to recognise their responsibilities to the whole open source community and give something back, even if it's just up-to-date information on their ports.

Take even the announcement above: no link to the homepage, or the original project homepage, just a couple of direct links to the binary archives. Please folks, get your acts together and show a little competence, then perhaps the non-Amiga community may actually take this scene seriously once more, rather than just regard it as something to be laughed at.

This is not intended as a flame, but as simple constructive advice.

Actually, I can't even do that as I don't have the source code, and so I can't redistribute it since it is GPL'd.

Hmm, Well I have a Pegasos2 (G4) so I can't directly answer that question =)
But I find FastTracker2 useable w/o fiddling around with frameskip here.
You probably could use it on a slower CPU with some tuning aswell.

Uhhuh, try loading a 16 channel FastTracker 2 module and play it at 22050Hz or even 11025Hz? It doesn't even run full speed on my Pentium 4!

Well, I'm more into old-school chippies so I don't need so many channels here =)

I do have the old DosBox archive, maybe I should just upload it to Aminet?

I'd like to know how to listen to MP3 on your Amiga while playing The Settlers.

Us 68k users (esp. Amithlon) really need a port of DosBox 0.60+, because the 0.58 version runs very few games (as it lacks emulation of the protected mode).
