I did some ports for q1 and q2. But i think most of the ports wouldnt be that difficult to get running, im guessing gl4es is already running since pitiseb has had hw for awhile. That would make it even easier to port some engines i.e q2, hexen 2, d1x, d2x.
Im guessing someone will come along...
levi, I was just trying to give a opinion to contribute to the discussion (elw3 was made the same point sbout price per performance). Then i though pitiseb misunderstood what i wrote thinking i was asking what was the point of box86 on arm. Im not trying to put down anything he is working on or...
I understand the technical reasons why you would need box86 and if for some reason arm was only hardware option you had to run x86 stuff on. Id be ore inclined to spend a lost less on a higher performing x86 pc.
has this been the highest performing arm device youve played on?
maybe it would be useful as a compile server, but it does seems strange to spend more for arm to then simulate x86 apps. You could probably buy (or get for free) even an older x86 machine at a much lower price.
@ptitSeb are you using the multi core in box86 or is it single thread?
I dont use the Dosbox EX, but the dosbox that Pitiseb released. So im going off using dosbox direct and not with any special frontends.
If you are getting an cdrom iso from archive org then you need to mount it.
imgmount D <path to iso> -t iso
mount C <your dosroot path>
search the D: for...
the most obvious use of swap Ive personally had is with my NSA320. When copying a large file once it filled the physical memory it would stop. Adding the swap file fixed the problem.
most modern machines dont really need it, but smaller devices it still has a use.
My launcher can be used for a GUI (it was used with the pandora version in the past). Id be willing to looking into any issues or any reasonable changes to make it better if its something you want to consider.
