I installed Dosbox 0.74 and I'm unable to properly play Prince of Persia past level 5 because the keyboard does not respond accurately to fast key presses. the game gets twitchy and demands good reflexes past level 5 to counter sword attacks, but quick moves are not registered 30% of the time if they are alternated too quickly (shift - arrow up - shift) I'm guessing consecutive presses under 30 miliseconds are skipped which always results in enemy hits.
I used to ace this game back in the 90s. figured I'd give it a spin over at http://www.playdosgamesonline.com but it sucks big time, the applet emulator stutters, glitches and freezes constantly. I figured I'd try dosbox and it seemed great until the game action got twitchy. I'm on an intel i5 with 4gb of ram, 64bit windows 7 pro and a 1gb vram ati chip. Dosbox cpu speed is 3000 cycles, frameskip is 0.
