i can boot win98 and launch diablo ii
i have some other questions pending.
it run slow, can i increase the ram up to 64 of default?
i can launch the diablo ii version i downloaded from the youtube video in russian version but if i try to launch my diablo ii version an error occurs (impossible to launch without cd or something)
could i have the widget i saw in your video? i didn’t understand how to use it
thanks11. June 2018 at 16:03 #6047
Yeah, it’s running slow for me, too. Must be a Win98 thing. I’ll try the Win95 image, and see how to update the drivers properly.
I’ve linked the profile further above, it’s the one I made for Diablo 1, you can also find it in the .mgc section. All you have to do is copy&paste your current mounting commands into this profile’s expert settings.11. June 2018 at 16:09 #6048
thanks you for your tests…
i look forward to them 😀
i used your conf file yet, but they didn’t appears11. June 2018 at 16:12 #6049
there is the 1.13d patch for diablo II, do it runs with win95?
also is it possible to use the plugy mod?11. June 2018 at 18:34 #6050
Another way could be run a kite version of xp12. June 2018 at 15:36 #6051
Alright, something in general. Here’s a really cool site for anything Win95-on-Dosbox related:
Insanely good tutorials, complete driver downloads, it’s great.
Next, I played a bit with the Win95 image from the Roland Deschain xda thread. It’s working perfectly fine when I mount it on Windows Dosbox, it starts in 16 bit mode, and I can launch Diablo 2. In Magic Dosbox, it doesn’t recognize the drivers. No luck installing S3 drivers so far, either. But I’ll keep trying. 🙂12. June 2018 at 16:45 #6052
i already saw that site.
i downloaded the drivers there
how about xp under dosbox? maybe a super lite version…
it could solve a lot of problems12. June 2018 at 19:06 #6054
WinXP won’t work. It doesn’t even work on Windows Dosbox sadly.
Maybe something can be done about svga_S3 emulation in MagicDosbox, but the issue may be related to Android. Sources are the same as Windows. ?12. June 2018 at 20:23 #6055adminKeymaster
If you want try it amd find differences then best is to try linux dosbox, because android rise from linux. Mdosbox is modified, maybe you can try andosbox.13. June 2018 at 11:42 #6056
It’s not working in both Andosbox and Dosbox Turbo, so there’s probably something wrong with the initial Android Dosbox sources. And also with the image itself, because it is possible to make Win95 work on Android.
I’ll keep trying…13. June 2018 at 13:22 #6057infernoxzxParticipant
Hi! “Windows XP” probably does not work for “DosBox” because of the “NTFS” file system (“DOS” does not support “NTFS”), hardware incompatibility (hardware)22. June 2018 at 9:18 #6062
someone has news?
bye22. June 2018 at 10:02 #6063
could be possible to use xp on android via bochs or limbo? have they high performance?22. June 2018 at 10:10 #6064
No chance. The biggest problem is that there’s no Glide/Direct3D support, so anything has to be software emulated, and will run painfully slow. I think you can install and launch Windows XP in Bochs/Qemu, but only as a proof of concept. You won’t be able to actually play anything.
I’m checking on the Win95 install again.22. June 2018 at 12:41 #6065
Still no luck. It’s working on my PC, but I only get a black screen when I boot it on my phone. Safe Mode is working, though. ?
