Good implementation Great port. Was able to get my autocad 12 to work after i changed to vga mode. Still have issues with plugging in a usb mouse and having dosbox recognize it. Im using galaxy note 2 and it runs pretty fast. Its great to have dos on my amdroid since i grew up on dos. :) forgot. Onscreen joystick doesnt always turn off and more keyboard chars would b good like ctrl c. Better mouse support as well. But great program.
Decent and works on android notebook All most perfect but was bumbed out about the poor mouse support. I would suggest adding real support, not just touch. the direct keyboard seems to work for the most part. Also unlocking the Z drive so the Autoexec.bat can be edited would also be nice. On a plus I can run win 3.1 in this emulator. which opens up a huge app set. Sofar I have installed the win32's , ms office, ie 3, media player, quick time and the windows entertainment pack. All works and responds nice, minus the mouse issues.
Takes me back To when i was a wee child and my father (whom worked for Gateway at the time... If you remember them) Would show me the commands to fire up games i loved to watch him play. *cough*Doom*cough* The torch was passed that day, and today i showed him how to make Panzer General work on an Android device! Superb app
Perfect! Almost. Just needs some things. Good wk:D wow...almost as good as the paid AnDoxBox... except it needs a few things for it to be 5 star awesome 1. speed should be about as good as andosbox..it's CLOSE. but almost there. 2. PORTRAIT MODE. with the giant keyboard in the way..I can't play ADOM or my other classic rouge games or not many games for that mater. 3. CPU cycle option is a bit confusing. on a positive side. AWESOME JOYSTICK. it actually works!! Better than the AnDOSBOX developer separately charging for his joystick named GamekeyBoard.
Great work so far. Keyboard doesn't seem to load the built in one. Maybe make a setting that allows a default input method to be chosen and keep the choice saved. Hackers keyboard is what I would use but as-is, it pulls up my Samsung keyboard for my Note 3. Also, still force closes on quittng.
Great dosbox port but This app works great and almost flawlessly especially on my Tablet. though one complaint I has with, which I think maybe not the fault of the app, is that ctrl,esc, Function keys on bluetooth keyboard don't work with dosbox. I read that this is from android OS special keys, I read it is possible to solve at least on rooted devices, but haven't had luck. I hope the app developer can find way and take advantage of root permission to make dosbox respond to function keys and ctrl. one other feature I hope to see is a reset option, that restart dosbox after confirmation. the work around I do for ctrl and esc keys I set them in on-screen keys, but it is not ideal solution.
When app quits, DOSBox exits gracefully.
Add DOSBox configuration dialog which allows users to change some config during run time. Following
config are supported so far
- Increase CPU cycle
- Decrease CPU cycle
- CPU cycle up step specification
- CPU cycle down step specification
- Increase frameskip
- Decrease frameskip
Those changes are **NOT** written to dosbox-<version>.conf file. So when you restart aDOSBox, you lose the changes! In the future, this will be fixed.
