    i am using a galaxy fold 2 as i said earlier, so raw horse power shouldnt be a issue. Of course you can always push it over the limits, but i feel i dont get get much better performance then my exynos based s10+.
    the cycles are already set at 150% and yeah- didnt note a big increase so that part makes sense.

    Right, Fold 2 should have plenty of power. I assume you’re on a stock ROM, so you can’t apply performance governor, or do some other kernel tweaks. On my phone, being on stock Android 10 instead of rooted Oreo, I’m seeing a heavy performance hit due to Samsung’s own crappy cpu management.
    This can be alleviated though by using Samsung Game Launcher, along with Game Booster Plus (https://galaxystore.samsung.com/detail/com.samsung.android.game.gameboosterplus). Add Magic Dosbox as game to the Launcher, then configure GBP to run it in max fps mode.

    its not about frames per second. the game and emulator runs smoothly. The problem is that the game simply slowdowns, as if the emulator only gives the game or program x amount of power and more will cause it to software-maticly slowdown. On a normal pc it would give fps drops, but here i notice the more units i have on the map, the slower the game runs.

    That’s what I’m talking about. Dosbox will always run at a certain fps, but with varying cpu resources assigned to it by your phone’s cpu management, the emulated cycles will also go up and down, and the game will slow down occasionally.

    Another thing you can try is fixed cycles settings. Something like cycles=50000 or 80000 or whatever.

    Any idea how to get settlers 4 working? it says invalid page on mapeditor.dll after downloading some additional dll files it asked about, like msimg32, ws2_help, ws2_32.

    I tried the Win98 lite image posted by Rolanddeschain over at xda developers. It’s working,though quite buggy and unstable.
    Haven’t tried Settlers 4 myself. Does it run in PC Dosbox?

    i never tried pc dosbox. I noticed GOG versions of games can be quite some times incompatible with windows 95.
    Is it possible to have a mmx instruction set without using the svn core, by the way?
    Because i found the settlers 4 isos, but the game now wont start without a mmx core compatible cpu it says. And when using svn core that supports mmx, most games dont play and quickly give errors, including the settlers 4 that wont even go to the boot image.
    Any help or things i can try wouldbe appriciated 🙂
