I recently discovered the wonders (and pain) of Double Buffering in DOSBox
I am a bit of a stickler for smooth scrolling in my games, so i always run DOSBox on my CRT monitor at 60hz, as this is smoother that the 85hz of it's native rate. If i turn on Double Buffering, the games run silky smooth on my setup, but as it states in the conf, it does slow things down. I have a 2.1 MHz core due CPU with 4GB ram and am running Windows XP.
Does anyone know of a conf setting, trick, hack, black magic/voodoo spell or any way to have Double Buffering on but retain the speed? I'm happy to sell my soul if necessary 😀
I have tried turning off all scalers etc, but it still is slow, do i just need a faster CPU?
