DOS PC Emulator for Raspberry Pi Released

[size=180]DOS PC Emulator for Raspberry Pi Released[/size]

Homebrew Coder Pate who first off released a DOS Emulator for the Nintendo DS, then moved onto the Android has now posted a release of his DOS Emulator for the Raspberry Pi. For those who dont know a Dos Emulator lets you play old PC Games such as Doom, Duke Nukem 3D, Theme park and similiar games from that period, in short an excellent way to play old games on a new device that was never intended to run the game.

The current status of the emulation is as follows:

  • CPU: 80486 processor, including the protected mode features (for running DOS4GW games) but without virtual memory support. The emulation runs at a speed of around 20MHz 80486 (which equals a 40MHz 80386) machine.
  • Memory: 640KB of low memory, 4MB of EMS memory and 16MB of XMS memory.
  • SoundBlaster 2.0 (including AdLib-compatible FM sounds) sound card.
  • US keyboard.
  • Two-button mouse.

I never knew about a DOS emulator for the DS. This one or the Raspberry Pi looks easy enough.

It will be interesting to see what comes next.

Does this mean we will be able to use Windows 3.11 on it?  :113:

Huh. If I had a Rasberry Pi, I'd look into this, but sadly, I do not. To be honest, I don't even know how to get DOSBox for the Android going, as much as I probably need to learn.
