    Hm, diablo 2 worked with normal core, do you have svn core off?

    For me , runs in normal core and dont put the CPU type on Pentium, causes freezes and crashes.

    I’ve set these two values under [cpu] in expert settings, works best for me:

    cputype=pentium_slow
    isapnpbios=true

    You can also try my Diablo 1 profile, it also works for Diablo 2. All you need to do is adjust the mounting in expert settings.

    Thanks guys,
    I tried all your solutions, however still with no luck. Here is what my custom settings are set to. I would love to try someone else is working images. however I don’t think that’s going to happen due to copyright reasons 😖 it’s strange that every other game I install seems to be working ok with no problems. I’d love to see how Diablo 2 works on my Rooted S10+snapdragon……..

    I noticed you said you installed the diablo 2 expansion. Diablo 2 only seems to run 1.05 or lower. Think it’s a direct x issue. You would need windows xp to run the expansion (1.07 is the lowest xpac version). So you can only run vanilla diablo 2 in MDB.

    Thanks, added it to the list. Looks like these new midrange cpus (Exynos 9610 too) are really very good for emulation.👍

    Hello everyone! I’m new to this nostalgia fun thanks to magic dosbox.
    I’ve benchmarked old tablet Google Nexus 7 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nexus_7_(2012)).
    Rom updated to: Android 7.1.2 (crDroid 7.1.2 20180618-grouper-v3.8.8)
    Result is 2894 realtics.

    Looks pretty slow but most dos games I’ve tested so far works very well:
    – prince of persia 1 and 2,
    – flashback,
    – wizardry 6 and 7,
    – robinson’s requiem,
    – the lord of the rings vol.1 and vol.2,
    – ultima 7,
    – lands of lore 1,
    – albion,
    – dreamweb,
    – prisoner of ice
    – ultima underworld 1 and 2

    The only ones that I’m not satisfied with for now are:
    – Lands of lore 2 requires low settings to work fluently,
    – Daggerfall – hardly playable on full screen and full settings. I guess it is about 15fps.

    Next step is to read how to run windows 98 and then diablo and fallout…but probably my tablet will die on these ;).

    No kidding, that’s actually pretty good, considering it’s a 2012 device. You should be able to play games like Warcraft 2 without any issues. Win95/98 will be rather painful to operate, though. But as a proof of concept, just give it a go. 🙂
