I appreciate the effort Jason did in writing this blog and trying all of that out, but I'm frankly surprised that he didn't find out that SciTech Display Doctor is freeware these days. A little bit of googling would have turned that up pretty quickly.

Although to be fair, apparently, the legal status of version 7.0 beta, which is said to be the only version that works with recent versions of VirtualBox, is less clear. I can't link directly to the article that talks about it, since it shares a download link and a legally ambiguous license key for that version.

Trying to compile 0.74-2 with Visual Studio 2017.

All libs have been recompiled with 2017 to fix issues with toolsets, certain functions, etc.

I am getting these errors when it goes to link:

Code: Select all

Do I need precompiled libs for the gameblaster and tandy sound or is something else going on here?

Good question. I probably forgot to add the sa and sn files to the project file.
Go to hardware/sound in your project navigation and click on add. Add all *.c and *.h files from the folder hardware/mame. That should fix it.

Reminds me that I need to update my VS guide and test with the latest VS version.

I'm working on build instructions for 2017 as well as a full project package.
Pretty much just have to tweak a few settings as well as change include and lib folders to relative paths for the project package.

This is in preparation for my optimization "fork" which should yield a nice 20%+ reduction in needed CPU cycles. Guessing more overall as the last time I did this was years ago and only optimized a few of the source files.

You looking at trying out VS 2019 Preview?

Yup 2019 and need to update my guide with the mingw ones and then finish and upload the linux guide.
Then the OSX guide which should be fun since all I have is OSX in vmware but should be enough. Don't think you can cross compile for OSX from linux.

I just noticed that the Dosbox repository package on my Arch Linux (64-bit) system was updated and it seems to work nicely. Dynamic core works, and freezing/crashing issues with GTA are gone too. Thanks!

I normally do not use dosbox, but I randomly do a test and then I remember why I do not like it.

Yesterday:
iMac 17" 10.6.8 two ready to useable ports I got from the web:
- Biomenace 1-3
- MortalKombat3
Both have the same problem. They are far from being smooth like on the real machine.

Biomance: Vertical-Scrolling is 100% smooth on the real machine, in my DosBox-Port it stutters.
Mortalkombat3: Horizontal-Scrolling in Game stutters obviosly, and the vertical-scrolling when choosing the "difficulty" too.

Are these examples a configurational error, or are these inevitable?

Btw: Adlib sounds really bad too (LostVikings e.g)
CPU: PII 133-333 MOBO: SNI-D981 RAM: 512- FDD: Dualfloppy 3,5"HD/5,25"HD - 3,5"HD - 5,25"DD ISA-Catweasel HDD: 2x40GB - DVD
ISA(3): Audician32-S2Dreamblaster - GusACE PCI(3): Monster3D- Intel NW AGP(1): 3dfx V3-3000

useable ports? What do you mean? Did you use them with Dosbox 0.74-2 or with something else? Not to mention that these games likely need more horsepower.

Sound might be better in a SVN built (as mine in the signature)

That's what you get with 70Hz games on a 60Hz display, stuttering.
They are innevitible unless you create a new resolution in your OS with 70Hz (like 1920x1080 @ 70Hz) and run dosbox.
Yes MK3 needs more power.

Adlib sounds great in dosbox.
