Kurz: Amiga Portierung von DOSBox


Amiga 68k port of DosBox v0.74.

DOSBox is a DOS-emulator that uses the SDL-library which makes DOSBox very easy to port to different platforms.
DOSBox has already been ported to many different platforms, such as Windows, BeOS, Linux, MacOS X and AmigaOS.

Unfortunately this special optimized 68k port is still very slow on real classic hardware.


1) An RTG Amiga with a fast 68060 processor
2) AHI installed (v4.18 recommended)
3) 3.1 ROMS (3.0 ROMS may cause it to run slowly)
4) Some old PC games or demos


* RTG SDL port
* MIDI support
* AHI Sound support
* Fullscreen and window mode support

Configuration Options:

The tooltype 'CLOSE_WB' can be used to close the Workbench (3.1 ROMS recommended).
The tooltype 'RELATIVE_MOUSE' can be used to capture relative mouse movement (only for fullscreen modes).
You must run DOSBox from the Workbench, running from the Shell is not supported.
The AHI device used will be the one configured in your AHI Prefs (Unit 0).
You will need to install the CAMD library if you want to use an external MIDI device.
The DOSBox log file will tell you which core it is actually using (may be different to the config setting).

Performance Considerations:

1) The number of cycles you set for the CPU emulation is critical, too high will stall the emulation
2) The fastest core to use is 'simple' but it's also the least compatible and may crash
3) If you have a Blizzard you should really be using BlizKick, Apollo users should be using RemApollo
4) Fast File System isn't, use PFS3 instead
5) Use v4.18 of AHI as the later versions are too slow on real hardware
6) If you are using Paula, stick with the 'FAST' 8 bit Mono/Stereo++ modes for (AHI prefs)
7) A 16 bit sound card *might* be faster with a 16 bit mode (AHI prefs)
8) Running in a window with an 8 bit screen mode will be slower


1) No CDROM support
2) No network support
