Reply To: DOSBox-X builds


it could help with this since it support
“Support for long filenames and FAT32 disk images (DOS 7+ features)”
here are some cool features of DOSBox-X that is still really active in development.
Also since modern phones are powerfull, maybe a 3dfx voodoo emulation could be used in software? I would test that out if possible.

Notable features in DOSBox-X
Although based on the DOSBox project, DOSBox-X is now a separate project because both have their own separate schedules and development priorities. For example, the main focus of DOSBox is for running DOS games whereas DOSBox-X goes way beyond this. At this time DOSBox-X already has a great number of features that do not exist in DOSBox. Examples of such features include:

GUI menu bar and built-in graphical configuration tool

Save and load state support (with up to 100 save slots)

Japanese NEC PC-98 mode emulation

Better compatibility with DOS applications

Support for more DOS commands and built-in external tools

Support for CPU types like Pentium Pro and MMX instructions

Support for IDE interfaces and improved Windows 3.x/9x emulation

Support for long filenames and FAT32 disk images (DOS 7+ features)

Support for TrueType font (TTF) output for text-mode DOS programs

Support for printing features, either to a real or to a virtual printer

Support for 3dfx Voodoo chip and Glide emulation (including Glide wrapper)

Support for cue sheets with FLAC, MP3, WAV, OGG Vorbis and Opus CD-DA tracks

Support for FluidSynth MIDI synthesizer and Innovation SSI-2001 emulation

Support for NE2000 Ethernet for networking and modem phone book mapping

Support for features such as V-Sync, overscan border and stereo swapping

Plus many more..

While the great majority of features in DOSBox-X are cross-platform, DOSBox-X does also have several notable platform-dependent features, such as support for automatic drive mounting, Direct3D output and starting programs to run on the host (-winrun) on the Windows platform. These features cannot be easily ported to other platforms. More information about DOSBox-X’s features can be found in DOSBox-X’s Feature Highlights page in the DOSBox-X Wiki.

DOSBox-X officially supports both SDL 1.2 and SDL 2.0; both 32-bit and 64-bit builds are also supported.
