Is it even remotely possible, even theoritically, that a Sound Blaster/Pro/16 emulator be made for users of ANY sound card to be used in actual Dos?
For that matter, is it possible to create a Dosbox for Dos? A program which can emulate sound cards floppy drives emulation etc. for Dos? Does this sound crazy or is it possible?
1. Because Dos can be installed on any x86/amd64 architecture.
2. A fully functional FreeDOS is now available for those who don't have Dos software.
3. A Dosbox-in-Dos emulation can make use of current super fast and multi-core processors.
4. Ability to boot into Dos, at fast speeds with current processors (maybe the fastest booting OS in a modern system), forget about registry mess-ups and maintain multi-configs in dos and have the luxury of emulating of a Sound Blaster using any PCI Sound Cards or built-in audio codecs.
5. It'll be fun (maybe not for the developers, but for us users! 😁)
6. Ability to run resource -hungry dos games in modern systems at full speed. (In fact, these games might be crying asking to slow down the superfast speed! 😁)
Sometimes, on a free weekend, when you're tired and bored to even play some games, you might be thinking like what I have just written above. Please ignore this idea (read boredom blabbers or day dreaming ideas) if it sounds like plain nonsense! At least you guys can understand that I'm bored. Other sites may be offended that there's a crazy guy on the loose! 🤣
(No, this is NOT an (delayed) April Fool crap. It's just an ordinary crap! 😁)
7. And oh, also the ability to introduce an actual software based slowdown on fast systems, with more scalability than ICD.EXE alone would be nice, too!
In the end, just a Sound Blaster or Pro emulator with built-in good slow down utility and a VESA compatible driver is all that I need in a modern system.
