Re: Prehistoric man / Prehisoric 2, for MSDOS.

in DOS
Most likely you remember emulation or maybe some pirate emulator wrapper of the era? That might explain that. Is it possible that in 1996, there was some kind of pirate wrapper capable of running the snes version on a pentium 75? That pc is surely able to do it. EDIT: This is cool... according to …

Re: Prehistoric man / Prehisoric 2, for MSDOS.

in DOS
I don't know of any other version of Prehistoric 2 for DOS. But I do remember playing gameboy games via emulation on a 486 DX 40. Not in 1996, but around 2000 or so, which is not too far off. Perhaps you were playing an emulated version on your P75? I already thought about that, but I clearly …

Prehistoric man / Prehisoric 2, for MSDOS.

in DOS
Hi. (Move the post if this is not the place). I'm a bit confused... I remember playing "prehistoric 2" on my pentium 75, around 1996 or so. But the "version" I remember looked just like "prehistoric man" for the snes, even with the cool transitions when entering a cave, and the comic bubbles. …

Re: MS-DOS Game Engine

in Milliways
I tested PCem, an emulator that can be set to simulate very specific hardware such as CPU or video cards. So I set it to emulate a 286 12 mhz, 1 MB ram and VGA. The first time I tried the RSD GAme Maker did nothing, just went back to dos, then I realised It might be looking for a mouse, so I …

Re: MS-DOS Game Engine

in Milliways
Hi ! I can test on a real 286. No need for e-mail, Just download the engine: https://github.com/gandrewstone/GameMaker. And post if it works. You run: cd\gm\gm.exe, thats the main program. Then in the folder: cd\sharware\ you'll find test games, most of them should work slow, because they have a …

MS-DOS Game Engine

in Milliways
Hi I was planning to make a game for MS-DOS, and I wanted to use a game engine, instead of programming the game from scratch. I found RSD Game Maker: http://www.aderack.com/game-maker/index.php?title=Main_Page. It looks awesome, but it seems a bit difficult to use. The engine requirements are: 286, …

Re: Portable retro PC

I used to have a EeePC 900 (Celeron M 900MHz). DOSBox ran well enough to play Dark Forces at an acceptable speed so it was performing maybe like a 486DX 33. I also played X-Com UFO Defense on it and that ran well. Native Windows games of course ran very well, and I played Master Of Orion 2 and Star …

Re: Portable retro PC

I have no idea why you'd want to go back to VDMSound. That was what we used before the DOSBox developers created DOSBox to surmount the problems inherent to NTVDM and VDMSound. VOGONS even used to be VDMSound headquarters. My English is not very good, This is what i want: -Portable/handheld x86 (or …

Re: Portable retro PC

What do you think about these "ultra mobile pc's", could I use them for DOS games? I don't know if all cpu's are x86 compatible. 1-Amtek T700 https://encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSfX8_Agt7kBnJm7pOi6n_XdMevhhnFN43MDKWkKk-w2KoDSJpzdA CPU = 1GHz VIA Chipset. 2-Samsung Q1 http://www. …

Re: Portable retro PC

I want to play games that were made just for DOS, so to play them in a "portable" device, i'll need a "libretto" or a very powerful android phone. I'm also testing the android way, if someone has tested these games on android "dosbox turbo" i'd like to know. GAMES: Alone in the dark (1,2,3). Little …

Re: Portable retro PC

Thanks! Toshiba Libretto 100CT is perfect, just a bit heavy. I already own a pentium 200 laptop, but it is too big to take around, these libretto's look much smaller. EDIT: I saw you need IDE to USB or PCMCIA to USB2.0 to copy things to libretto HD, it is not too difficult :) Also the sound is an …

Portable retro PC

Hi i'm looking for a portable/pocket x86 PC. I found some boards similar to raspberry pi, with x86 CPU on them, But these cpu's are too fast. I wonder if there is a portable device with x86 cpu, around 100-200 MHz, in which i could install windows 98 or MS-DOS. Something like those PDA or little " …

Re: Optimize dosbox for PSP

c) You're not a very skilled programmer and are expecting most of the work to be done by other people. i'm not expecting most of the work to be done by other people. I just want to compile it, create an eboot and do all the work = to test how changes in the code improve or not the speed. I hoped it …

Optimize dosbox for PSP

Hi. I love dos games and i wanted to compile dosbox for psp by myself, to optimize it for a couple of games (erase all unnecesary emulation, sound cards, etc) I'm not a very skilled programmer, and i'd like a small guide to compile the eboot from source. Then, i'll just play with the code and try to …

Re: MS-DOS, audio CD, and some other trouble

in DOS
I'm not sure you're looking in the right spot. You are right, this window is inside "multimedia" not in "device manager". CD audio worked perfect with the option checked and unchecked. Volume is at 100%. I found some posts about conventional memory, I added this to config.sys: DEVICE=C:\...\EMM386. …

Re: MS-DOS, audio CD, and some other trouble

in DOS
Also, just to be sure: if you clear this checkbox in Windows 98, do you still get CD audio? (I should have asked this earlier.) You can get to this box by right-clicking on your CD drive in Device Manager. (Does that make sense?) audiofull.gif It does not look like that window, I have no volume …
