Re: Best OPL emulation settings

I can't hear any discernable difference between NukedOPL and real hardware, fwiw. This may depend on a concrete music or sounds. What is your sound hardware and its system settings. Not only software's settings. Should be used blind comparision, anyway, and there are such plugins for music players. …

Re: DOSBox 0.74 CPU Benchmark

The first pass has to translate the code then run it, subsequent runs don't need to translate if the memory hasn't been changed. Speedtest by 2 runs (2 identical strings in a batch file) by the recommended procedure gives results differing <5% on my machine/OS and 0.74. This % is similar to random …

Re: DOSBox 0.74 CPU Benchmark

With dosbox 0.74-3 I have 1124.7 instead of 803.4 with the first pass. Why these differences ? It's better to try a real game as Doom or Quake and in case you'll get significant (>10%) instable benchmark results there, - to ask about strange emulation behavior in a specific theme or development …

Re: Dosbox 0.75?

in case there is a good reason why 64 bit versions of DOSBox aren't more prevalent They are expected to coexist with x32. The best would be place x32 and x64 SVN builds together alike dosbox-x does. And maybe to place a note about more possible issues of x64 build with the recommendation to try x32 …

Re: DOSBox speed vs real DOS PC?

some data is there DOSBox 0.74 CPU Benchmark https://www.dosbox.com/wiki/Performance It's an approximation which supposes a similar enough code. Doom and Speedtst performance should be useful for most games. Quake is more useful for late 3D games.

Re: Noisy old computers ?

As computers and machinery become more advanced they become quieter and silent. There are formal medical standards about safe level of noise at working places. Also there are personal tastes and preferences. There is nothing more. They want to have more performance and meanwhile cheaper - this …

Re: DOSBox 0.74 CPU Benchmark

To be fair, the performance delta between 32-bit builds in Quake at 320x200 doesn't seem as dramatic as that shown in the Speedtst scores. 0.74-3 gets ~212fps, 32-bit MinGW SVN build gets ~220fps, 32-bit VS build gets ~245. The VS build is about 15% faster than 0.74-3 and is 11% faster than the …
