Reply To: Disk emulation in RAM


I did not try the DosBox-X, it’s for Windows, and there is currently a problem with my PC… So I don’t know how RAM disks work there.

The advantage is that there will be no multiple data overwrites on SD, until finally RAM image will be saved to disk.

Come to think of it, maybe it’s not needed much for games. And Magic DosBox is aimed for games, of course.
And it seems to be difficult to implement, so maybe the result doesn’t worth the efforts.
That was just a suggestion, don’t pay too much attention to it. 🙂

The only *game* I know that constantly writes data to disk is “The Legend of Kyrandia” series – when it plays voices, it stores temporary *.voc files on HDD.

Such “hardware” RAM disks should be more useful for complete PC emulators, like Limbo, when installing heavy things – Windows etc.
So maybe it’s not really needed for gaming emulator.
Sorry for taking too much of your attention, and thanks again for nice program! ?
