The current Dosbox runs fine the MS-DOS games.

Yes, but limits to windows 3.1, and the new branch accepts win 95 and 98.

I think this interesting.

I suppose the new version will run slower(?), because I presume it has more detailed emulation? (Well, that's usually what happens with newer emulator versions, particularly with increasing CPU power being available.)

At the moment there are endianess problem in cga-ega mode. Dos protected mode is slow and buggy.
vga mode runs quite well.
Some optimizations are possibile

Great to hear what you're working on. Thanks!

Do you think the emulation will run well enough to run
Doze95/98 productivity apps?

Thanks again,

PJS

Sorry for the long delay. As explained in another thread i had some problems with HD, Windows and so on...

Dosbox is working for a large number of games (VGA only). EGA, CGA and Dos extended mode still have problems.
Found some endianess issue. The dosbox x author will address the endiness issues as son as possible.

Thanks for the update! Hope the author helps with the
endian issues, it seems like so few x86 guys care about
running on anything else these days.

Thanks again,

Hello everyone,

Fixed some endianess issue related to certain graphics mode.
Fixed some color issue on VGA ega emulation.

Still some work to do. IDE emulation is a little slow (debug is active atm). HD image have issues for certain .img type and size. Actual version is 082.10

Don't know if you know it already, but have you look at the patch that at the time Corto implement for the "standard" version ?
It included various speedup and optimizations for lower machines such Sam440 and so on, perhaps these optimizations could be used also for the X version ...

Diffs source are included in the main archive:

Hello Saimo,

i'm aware of the patch made by Corto. The patch have been sent to the author and he will "study" these optimization to include those, eventually, in the future.

By the way, DosBox-X is quite different in some aspects regarding the original DosBox. The graphics part has been significantly modified. This is way other Endian issues popped out.

I love DOSBOX.Is great to run MSDOS games.But at which speed will it run DOSBox-X 0.8.82.2?

I want to install Windows 95 or even 98.

And run 3D shooters as well

Which are the improvements on this version?

The DosBox-X aims is to be more compatible than other emulators, supporting as more hardware as possible.

http://dosbox-x.com/demoscene-compat.html
http://dosbox-x.com/msdos-compat.html

As for the speed this should be the same as DosBox 074.
This version uses SDL2 acceleration on Amiga OS 4.

Note that DosBox-X is actively developed and tested, so we can expect to see improvements in the future.
