Root (linux)

\ Windows

\ DOS

\ AMIGAOS3.9

\ AROS

\ATARI

\C64


Linux runs it all. If you like software and trying things, linux lets you run everything... Windows too but its sexier with linux.

This is the first I have heard of this...
Any more info on this? This would be so awesome, running all my dos favs
from my amiga 68k....


It's already been ported: http://aminet.net/package/misc/emu/DOSBox_68k.lha
  Unfortunately it's an old and therefore less compatible version, and also illegal as the source code is missing. So I guess V0.74 will need to be ported from scratch :-(

Your PCTask video impressed me. However I have couple of questions about it to clerify things for me.
 
1) Did you USE any real x86 hardware or is this purely running from Workbench Amiga 68k a software emulation of x86 PC?
 
2) It seems the speed of DOS cursor is smooth at 040 but the game play framerate is bad, would the framerate increase to an enjoyable level if we simply have a 060 CPU instead of a 040 CPU?
 
3) Can I run any 3D game that was designed for DOS or any DOS games using PCTask on AGA and run smoothly with a 20 fps or even 15 fps?
 
4) Is it like DOSBox? Can it run any DOS game or application or heck even install Windows 95/98 on PCTask on a real partition on the Amiga??
 
5) Can I run everything through AGA into my Commodore 1084S monitor with PCTask?
 
6) Can I still register for it and where can I buy it??

1/ only software emulation

2/ Classic machines are full of bootlenecks : for exemple, AGA slowdown a fast 060

3/ 15 or 20 fps ? Hum, you are a dreamer !

4/ Windows 3.1 is working AFIR, but Windows 95/98 not

5/ yes

6/ PCTask is now free

1) COOL!
2) OK but can I at least run any 2D game if not 3D game at a good enjoyable speed with a 060 or this will never happen?
3) What if we upgraded to RTG or video card can then we run PCTask at a 15 or 20 fps? IS there away with AGA it can run at least at a decent speed to enjoy?
4) Thanks
5) SWEET
6) Where can I get the free version? In Aminet it is a demo only.

4/ WRONG! I fought through the pain and installed Win95 in PC-Task and it *worked*! Well it was painfully slow ;). Win 3.1 was OK speedwise.

Hiya,

It's running but not ready for release yet, still loads of work to do.

More details here -> thread

Nice video of pctask but if the frame rate during gameplay is so bad, its not really relevant....

I would really like to see warcraft,wing commander,xwing and tie fighter on an 060 amiga 1200.

I was surprised by how well it ran actually! Remember this is only a 68040 running (well, walking!) a 3D game under emulation.

Personally I use my beefed-up 50MHz 486SLC/2 A2386SX bridgeboard with 13.5MHz ISA bus. Only problem is no sound card I've found so far can cope with the overclocking of the ISA bus, but it made an appreciable difference in speed of Doom.
Ultima 7 runs nicely though, and Alone in the Dark is also good.
My next test is to replace the 386SX bridgeboard in one of my A1500s with a 33MHz 486SLC and see if the upped bus speed from 25MHz to 33MHz makes much difference. Means swapping the northbridge as well as the CPU, but because the bottleneck on the 386SX platform is the 16-bit memory bus, I think that extra 8MHz may make a difference.
