I am currently writing a blog post for non-English forum about the PCjr/Tandy emulation in DOSBox. I would like some clarity in the following matters in order to give factually correct information:
- I already know that DOSBox can emulate the additional sound hardware of PCjr and Tandy computers (I am actually using it with Pool of Radiance at the moment). However, the documentation for DOSBox says that with tandy=auto sound setting this emulation is enabled only, when using machine=tandy setting. Is the emulation for PCjr/Tandy sound hardware also automatically enabled when using machine=pcjr with tandy=auto?
- Does tandy=no setting disable the emulation of the additional sound hardware with both machine=pcjr and machine=tandy or only with machine=tandy?
- Supposedly the PCjr enhancements of the cult classic Alley Cat don't work correctly on Tandy computers without unofficial patches. Do these enhancements work on DOSBox with machine=pcjr? If they do, do these enhancements also include the PCjr sounds?
Thank you in advance! 😀
