    Thumbs up PSP Dosbox (early beta) Released

    Crazy C has given me the go ahead to publically announce the release of his port of Dosbox v0.60 to the PSP, heres some info about Dosbox:

    DOSBox emulates a full x86 pc with sound and dos. It's main use is to run old dosgames on platforms which don't have dos.

    Heres what Crazy C posted about this release:

    This patch, when applied to dosbox 0.60 and linked with these library functions, arwin's p-sprint and SDL (with 8-bit surface patch), gets dosbox running on the psp. Later versions use an array too large to fit in the PSP memory for indexing memory pages while this version has high level emulation of dpmi. I've tested simcity 2000 and tie fighter and they run although very slowly, a lot of optimization will be need if this will be usable. Note that stat fails if the root of the memory stick is what is being checked therefore it cannot be mounted. Mounting ms0:/psp works fine though. Also there is currently no mouse or joystick support.

    Thanks to Guyfawkes for making the eboot and Crazy C for another great PSP release.

    Pretty cool. I got just past the title screen on police quest, I'm gonna try hugo's house of horrors next. I use dosbox quite often, and this would be a wonderful app if it progressed enough, with mouse support, an on-screen keyboard, and remappable keys. Very promising!

    i wonder if there are any freeware (meaning 100% legal games) that we could chuck in with this and make a release that auto starts that one game.

    tis cool though

    Put a text adventure on there, cause there's not going to be too many games you can control with psprint.It'll be some practice for psprint. Actually, I'm going to install Zork... Is it freeware?

    This would rock if it ran at a decent speed and had mapable keys and a software keyboard.

    This is great but I hope the speed will improve in newer versions. If you want legal free games check out www.abandonia.com
