My unbiased opinion First i'd like to say that I only just recently tried Dosbox Turbo because Andosbox has never failed me. There are plenty of reviews of people bashing Andosbox because they are too cheap to buy the Gamekeyboard. I pay no attention to them because Gamekeyboard is useful for many things besides Andosbox and really deserves to be a separate paid app. Then there are those that say Dosbox Turbo is much faster...this bothered me a little bit because i would like Arena and Daggerfall to run a little faster (i've already optimized everything as much as possible). So i got the latest dosbox turbo...Is it really that much faster? It did seem to be a little faster but not by much...also doesn't seem as stable and the other problem is that their gamepad sucks and no wonder it is free. Andosbox wins overall. Both are way too slow compared to a normal desktop with dosbox. Can't really say i can enjoy Arena/Daggerfall with how sluggish they are on android. One last thing.. Right mouse click much easier to do on Andosbox which is kinda necessary for attacking in these games.
Games run fast and smooth! This DosBox program is easy to use. The old action platformers by Apogee play great with the optional GameKeyboard. The only thing lacking is a front-end game manager to keep individual settings for each game. Keep up the good work, Locnet!
Missing menu button I did an android update on Friday, and I noticed since then the small floating circle I hit to bring up the menu is gone.the hidden buttons are there but the only buttons that work are the keyboard and hide buttons ,the menu button doesn't work.so how do I get the men now to change inputs ?
Lack of features, compat w/ many games Lacking features and compat of dosbox turbo. Some imes are blocked to make them more money as well. **Edit: The developer decided to call me a liar. I'm not purchasing anything else from them either, because customer relations matter.
Both good and bad sides Unlike DosBox Turbo, this DOS emulator managed to emulate a CD-ROM very well, so that I could run my favourite program, which needs to be fueled from CD. This gladdened me immensely. However, my air mouse doesn't work that well, and I couldn't get Win3.1 to run properly, which was easy in Turbo. (Probably I need to set some parameters correctly, which takes time to figure out.) So I have decided to use both emulators for different purposes.
Best dosbox yet! I still think this is the best dosbox yet seeing as how I can get it to run simcity 2000 ceaser 2 doom 2 Duke nukem 3d settlers 2 Warcraft 2 all with no issue but the onscreen controls from adosbox made my fps games much easier to play which this does not have but all my games run awesome on this version as compared to all the other dosboxes I've tried turbo gdosbox adosbox dosbox and dosbox turbo and this one definitely runs my games smoother but I have a Motorola Xoom so having a onscreen mouse in my fps games like adosbox had would be a great improvement or make it so swiping the screen forward back left and right mimick a mouse also they digital keyboard makes it impossible to change the weapons as you would with a classic keyboard and figuring out the sound setup for my games is nearly Impossible but I would gladly pay 30usd + for a version of dos or even windows 95 something that could give my Motorola Xoom the same punch a old Pentium 2mmx 233 MHz and handlibg I would pay a lot for it and I'm sure I am not the only one who would but I am going to be spreading the word for you guys you have a lot of potential and I want to see you guys really tap into it...but awesome dosbox
