Hey. I'm trying to run Descent. I have a PIII 1.0GHz, 384mb ram, nVidia GeForce2 MX 32mb. That should be more than sufficient for running Descent on Dosbox, I would think. But I can't get the game to run with decent fluidity. I've experimented extensively changing cycles and frameskip with no luck.
Descent II runs on Windows very smoothly with resources to spare. The only thing I can think of is that the resources Dosbox uses are taking away from the resources Descent has to use. But it shouldn't have that dramatic of an effect, should it? I'm fairly certain that my system should be handling this a lot better, given the specs. Can anyone help me out?
