dosbox now running on Nokia 770!





Download at http://pupnik.de/dosbox.html

Changes: Packaged to .deb, updated to 0.72+ cvs with new alignment fixes. Support for xkbd autostart. Mouse auto-calibration should work in some games - drag stylus slowly across all four corners of the game screen.

Update Feb 16: New N800/N810 version up - should install without dependencies - fixed N810 keyboard problem - should install on OS2007 also (not tested).

Update Feb 27: Thanks to ukki we now have Rubybox! a dosbox frontend launcher specifically for maemo/ITOS.

Rubybox requires two ruby packages:
ruby1.8
ruby1.8-maemo
To install these on OS2008, click on the following link to the .install file for the GPL Systems Repository (repository containing ruby) then in application manager go to the section 'programming' and install the ruby packages.

http://pupnik.de/rubybox_0.1.deb

Update March 04: New dosbox bundled with vertical/left-hand-side keyboard map. You can now change the .xkbd map by editing /usr/bin/dosboxkbd to point to whatever .xkbd layoutfile and -geometry positioning you want.

Just found some ~major~ speedups in dosbox.conf...

PC speaker working fine.

Sb16 emulation working (but Adlib/OPL3 FM synthesis is very cpu intensive, as is to be expected).

UMB/XMS/EMS working

Dosbox mmap2() can't allocate more than 2MB of ram for emulated PC

8088/8086 compat. games tested (Alleycat, UltimaIV) run nice and fast, and look beautiful with advmame2x smoothing scaler.

80286 games tested so far are unplayable.

(edit) Dosbox 0.70 is unplayably slow so far.

Update: I've gotten dosbox 0.70 running fast now, (the auto cycle option was causing problems) but the VGA emulation is broken - garbage on screen.

(edit) "Fast" means roughly equivalent to a 4.77mhz 8088 in overall performance. If you can write a Just In Time compiler for x86 onto ARM, that'd help a lot.

Download this

http://pupnik.de/dosbox_maemo_065_001.tgz

and extract with

tar xzvf dosbox_maemo_065_001.tgz

I think you'll need to grab this to run it

Let me know how things work for you. Favorite games, dosbox.conf tweaks.

I'm not the best at this, and I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but when I try and run it from xterm I get the error:

/media/mmc2/dosbox_maemo_065_001 $ dosbox --conf dosbox.conf

/bin/sh: dosbox: not found

What a lame free hosting site. I uploaded that a couple of hours ago.

It's a library that allows sdl apps to use networking.

To obra, i should have mentioned in the README that the dosbox executeable has to be placed on your root filesystem.

The nokias can not run programs off the mmc card (or SD card, AFAIK).

So i just put dosbox in my home directory and put my dos games on the mmc card. Then i mount the directory with the dos games inside dosbox.

Stop by #maemo chat on irc.freenode.net for faster answers.
