Re: Screamer 2

Version 0.70 now runs Screamer 2 amazingly fast! I even get about 25-30 fps in high resolution mode (using dos32a). Really impressive. The setup still gives a black screen, though, but I wonder if that is due to IPX or CD or something like that...

Re: Universal Binary for OS X?

There is no such thing as a Universal binary of SDLMAME. You compile it customized and optimized for your own processor on your own machine. Note that the first release did not enable compiler optimizations, and between that and OpenGL mode the current builds are between 5 and 20 times faster on G5 …

Re: Universal Binary for OS X?

Aww, no love for the OS X version, it seems. :( Well, not from me either, I must confess... I still don't want to install Windows via boot camp to run speed tests (going to wait until Vista). However, I have recently downloaded a universal binary of something called SDLMame (some sort of Mame port …

Re: 0.65 messing up my icons.

It can't be a windows feature .. It IS a Windows feature and there are other application which do this. I believe it is appliations which actually resize the desktop in order to cover it with their window, instead of applications which create hardware surfaces separate from the desktop, but I'm …

Re: Universal Binary for OS X?

I personally think that the all-in-all speed issue is more important than the dynamic core, though. As you can see in my posts above, I suspect that there somehow is a huge speed difference, regardless of core, between the OS X and XP versions (with XP being a whole lot faster). I haven't installed …

Re: Screamer 2

Ok, so this topic is very old, but no resolution seems to have been found, and the game still refuses to run with the "no PCI bus detected" error even in the new DosBox 0.65. Also, if you try to run the game using Dos32A 9.1.1 you get the following additional errors: Dos/32A warning (9003): real …

Re: Universal Binary for OS X?

I seem to remember something about Apple optimizing OSX for a small memory foot print over performance optimizations. Then again, maybe the x86 version of Darwin isn't as well optimized for the hardware as it is for PPC. Hmm? Everywhere I've read about OS X performance since I got my Macbook, …

Re: Universal Binary for OS X?

Is there a Macbook Pro user out there with boot camp who can do speed comparison tests between XP and OS X? The latest stable Windows DOSBox on my 1.83 Macbook w/ 1.5 gb ram is WAY faster than either the lamers or punk build. I played a few games: Red Baron, Shuttle, Might & Magic Xeen, and they …

Re: Universal Binary for OS X?

Thank you for confirming that the "punk" version is busted. I guess all we can do now is to wait until what was deemed wrong with lamer0's patches has been sorted out, because whatever he did, it apparently works, and whatever the "punk" people did, they failed. Is there a Macbook Pro user out there …

Re: Universal Binary for OS X?

Well, the keyboard is really a minor thing. The performance is more important, imo. Has anyone else with a Macbook out there tested this yet? I don't know how these Core Duos work yet, but it seems that though the activity monitor reports DosBox as taking 70% CPU resources, only about 50% of each …

Re: Universal Binary for OS X?

Ok, a bit further testing... No matter what I do, regardless of core type and number of CPU cycles, I cannot get the OS X version of 0.65 to stop sound stuttering (the best I could do was to get 0.5 seconds of silence every 2 seconds). Also, the 0.65 OS X version crashes using dynamic core on the …

Re: Universal Binary for OS X?

Yup, it was just posted to MaUpdate as well: http://www.macupdate.com/download.php/14973/DOSBox.Universal-0.65.dmg This isn't official, though, is it? The application icon doesn't match the PC one and it apparently can read its preferences from the Library instead of a standard .config file like the …
