..no takers...tee hee
Late to the party.
The dosbox post appeared a couple of hours later in rsgbtech. Been using
it for years, even ran it on my Macbook Pro back in 2007.
Like Jim, you've nothing useful to add then.
Oh go on then, I've got a few minutes to spare.
You got the serial port mapping to real serial ports although it can be
a little bit temperamental (watch for errors in the monitor window). As
KBV already covered the CPU throttling to limit the speed. On Windows
Networking is non-existent although it mimics Novell ipx over ip, useful
if you want to run something like multiplayer netwars or other
Runs on a Mac under OSX. Serial port worked OK with USB serial adaptors,
think I was using a Prolific based one at the time which needed some
kernel drivers loading. I don't currently have a working Mac to test it
on, my MBP died with a GPU fault after 7 years.
It also runs on RPIs and other ARM machines. Some of the older Motorola
programming stuff is very temperamental but can be made to work (also
covered in rsgbtech). The GP300 and GM300 programmers works fine but the
mc-micro and radius M110 not so.
If you create a folder with your down programs you can unzip/move
whatever using your native OS commands then when you start you can mount
mount c /home/mouse/dosdrive
Then they will appear under drive C: in dosbox.
Add this and any other "autoexec.bat" commands to the end of dosbox.conf
to have them load when you boot it.
Some experimenting with
for full screen output or double-size windows, useful if your graphics
resolution is 1920x1080.
So nothing useful to add really apart from it looks cool running on a Pi
Where Morse meets House.
