just got a gpd win, and all i wanted was to play 3d dos games on it..and i've been hugely disappointed so far.
now,i set dosbox (standard,vanilla version)with the same settings i use on my desktop pc (I7 with 16 gbram, win 10 x64) by setting cycles to "max" cpu to "dynamic", removed any scaler, and leaving everything else as it is.
for what concerns 2d games, no problems here. the issues arise when i try 3d intensive games, especially those with svga support such as Fatal racing and duke nukem 3d. Both of them runs slow, very slow, like if i was using my old pentium 75.for some games its almost playable (duke nukem, blood etc) some other stutters so much that is like watching a slideshow.if i set those to 320x200, removing any sort of svga setting, they run at 60 fps.
The gpd win has a Atom X7 Z8700 64bit Quad Core 1.6GHz, and from what i read and possibly understood, dosbox doesn't support multicore, but only one core,.,and that core better be damn fast or else..
now, i'm aware that i could get duke nukem 3d on steam and whatnot..but what about those games like fatal racing, big red racing and other 3d dos games that will never be ported ? is there a way to make dosbox run faster on this cpu?or a patch or a different build ?
