Sorry this is a 'dead' project. I spent months on it (as did Matt). It's actually released and on AmiNet but it's too slow to be of much use.

There's nothing else I can do to optimize it using C++, it needs some very cool 68060 ASM to make it faster.

Fired up Championship Manager 97/98 on my A1200, it's not actually that much slower than the Champ Manager 2 port we got all those years ago!

Of course, I'm only messing around, both are unfortunately unplayable. But, just like mame, it's fun loading up the games/ROMs and seeing how far you can get.

Theres a fake86 - portable open-source SDL-based PC 8086 emulator on the net, which probably would run better than DosBox on Amigas. Even it is only a PC-XT emu, it contains soundblaster+adlib emulation, which other Amiga emulators does not, so I think there is a question for NovaCoder what he thinks, if this would be worth to try to make an Amiga-port of this.

Is there a way to make the emulation work with some kind of hardware midi emulation? Is a midi player which we can plug into the midi out port of a midi interface?

If we get Vampire apollo boards for A1200 soon, maybe this project could have happy end... Lightning speed on demos published.

Yes, possible, someone I know very well just brought an MT-32

It think it would take more than the Vampire......a bigger FPGA and it's possible, 400 MIPS would do wonders. I tired it under WinUAE on a fast PC and it ran very nicely.

There's also a port called DosBox Turbo which has been optimised, maybe this would be a better fit for 68K.

Hi Nova, compiling fake86 is very easy and fast.
I took me 5 minutes. But it doesn't work for me. Only black window opens.
Maybe it will work for you?

Yep OK, I'll give it a go.

Is it SDL based?

I've got some new SDL builds for you to try BTW

Nice.

Yes.
Note: It uses threads from libx11. I coudn't find it so I commented XInitThread().

I thought I'd release my final version of DOSBox AGA, this version has been further optimized by removing support for 486 and 586 CPU's.

It's still very slow but it might be possible to play some of the older PC games.

When we get a super fast FPGA CPU then this emulator will be totally awesome for Amiga users

I also added CAMD MIDI support to this release but I'm not sure if it's working properly.

Great work, it will be very useful when FPGA accelerators will be in our Amigas.

I tried changing the 'frame skip' option to 10 and was able to get Eye of the Beholder running (slowly)

Could you try something like Prestorik 2, Blues Brothers 2, Pinball Dreams 2?

It works better with slow moving games like Dungeon games, strategy games, adventure games and golf games.

It's not going to be much fun with fast moving games like platform games, driving games or pinball games.
