    Default Dosbox to Dreamcast?

    Just scuttled over to the dosbox site and found this

    DOSBox is a DOS-emulator that uses the SDL-library which makes DOSBox very easy to port to different platforms. DOSBox has already been ported to many different platforms, such as Windows, BeOS, Linux, MacOS X...

    DOSBox also emulates CPU:286/386 realmode/protected mode, Directory FileSystem/XMS/EMS, Tandy/Hercules/CGA/EGA/VGA/VESA graphics, a SoundBlaster/Gravis Ultra Sound card for excellent sound compatibility with older games...

    You can "re-live" the good old days with the help of DOSBox, it can run plenty of the old classics that don't run on your new computer!

    DOSBox is totally free of charge and OpenSource.
    Could a port however slow be done?

    even if it could only play really old games it may be of some use?

    Dosbox is a little too heavy

    something like this might be a better starting point

    It'd be great to run some old dos classics again.

    DosBox would eat to much the ram up to be able to run anything ontop of it.

    I got it to compile. and it runs, but exits. probably because it dosnt find anything. this seems like a great port project ;D

    sorry for double post. ok, does anyone know of any file that would work with this? it just needs an exe to try to run. it has no menu or anything =P.


    Whoa, nm i just found out that it only supports like 4 games...

    Master Of Magic,Round 42, Moon Bugs, Styx, Exterminator, and Rollo and the brush bros.

    Some of the stuff it's known to run can be
    gotten here, it's where I first stumbled
    across it.

    based on the source it should play
    all the real early PC/PCjr stuff as long
    as no basic rom is required..
