Re: Tartar (Doom DOS port)

Is voxel support a possibility in the Tartar port? It seems to work on a related and early version of Eternity in DOS, but it requires a mid-level Pentium or better (tested with attached code that is unsupported/not finished). The FPS drops during gameplay. Thank you for making the Tartar port …

Console menu in batch file format

Attached is an archive with a batch file for showing a console menu in DOSBox. This example menu can be further adapted for starting other games and specifying emulator options. It also has an example for running STRINGS.COM (DOS command line utility to ask for user input). This utility may be …

Re: DOSBox-X branch

Attached is code to implement a gamma level modifier for cases where the input color depth is 8 bpp. It was only tested against 32-bit color output and in VGA, but may work in other cases. It is for testing only and based on the assumption that the modified red/green/blue values are 6-bit values, …

Re: How to run BAO Tower?

It is not safe to use disk utilities (such as scandisk or defrag) on the image in DOSBox emulation: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?p=117084#p117084 I would delete the disk image copy which was modified by any disk utility. It is also a good practice to keep a backup copy of the Tower disk …

Re: How to run BAO Tower?

Thank you for the excellent recommendations. I think the nice advantage of FS4 and FS5 is that the propeller aircraft can be controlled with a keyboard. The jet aircraft in FS5 seem a bit more difficult to handle with the keyboard only. The use of flat textures also holds up better.

Re: How to run BAO Tower?

That is wonderful news! :) I am very glad that you have the sim working since it is one of a kind. I believe it also allows a connection to one fs5.1 client via the serial emulation, although it may not be an essential feature. I recall the sim has a readme about it and the use of share.exe to …

Re: How to run BAO Tower?

I would make a copy of the Tower disk image as a backup. Then I would use the copy and imgmount it like done previously, but this time allow access to the Windows directory for W31 where the sound works (DOSBox would start in a local directory, along with a subdirectory for Windows). It should be …

Re: How to run BAO Tower?

Glad to help. :) It is possible to transfer the files by OSFMount, given it is compatible with the host OS. I believe there is another software that has the transfer function, too. The other way is to start DOSBox by the mount command on a local directory with the sb2 files, along with mounting the …

Re: How to run BAO Tower?

Does BAO Tower rely on the SB16 CSP device which is not emulated in DOSBox? The voice from the tower works from a bootable W31 image. I tested with ems=false, umb=true, xms=true, sbtype=sb2. Autoexec.bat is empty file. Config.sys has two lines only: device=c:\setver.exe device=c:\himem.sys The SB …

Re: DOSBox-X branch

Attached is code to implement a gamma level modifier in the 3dfx Voodoo emulation (non-opengl software path only), as in DOSBox-X. It likely requires manual application of the patch since it was formed in a modified build. It also has a feature that implements a gamma level for non-3dfx cases where …

Re: DOSBox-X branch

A multithreaded version of the software rendering path in the 3dfx Voodoo 1 emulation patch is compatible with DOSBox-X: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?p=1099414#p1099414 It has different code for the PCI emulation, but it is not difficult to adapt. It requires moving lines of code while not …

Re: DOSBox-X branch

I am testing the recent patch for an increased baud rate on a serial port. Since it may affect the modem emulation: static Bitu INT14_Handler(void) { .. switch (reg_ah) { case 0x00: { ... Bitu baudrate = 9600; uint16_t baudresult; Bitu rawbaud=(Bitu)reg_al>>5; if (rawbaud==0){ baudrate=110;} ... …

Re: Good DosBox on tablets?

Retroarch has another port of DOSBox for Android: https://www.libretro.com/index.php/category/dosbox-pure/ https://docs.libretro.com/library/dosbox_pure/ I haven't tested this qemu port for Android: https://virtualmachinery.weebly.com/ https://github.com/limboemu/limbo https://www.reddit.com/r/ …
