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.


Yep I thought it ran Tomb Raider pretty well, I'd like to see what my 80Mhz 060 could do with it.  I did have a quick play with PCTask but it looks like a bit of a bitch to setup.

Nice Ports on AmiNet!

Nah, PC-Task is dead easy to set up. Create a hardfile and tell it to use it. Set the memory you want available and set the screenmodes - that's it.

It's the MS-DOS that's a pain....

I never realized PC Task had to much potential...

So aside from my awesome KCS Power PC (NEC v30 powered) XT PC board, did anyone else make an internal PC board for Amiga's?

Speaking of which, would it not be neat if the MKII could pass a VGA output through it and allow for Amiga 68ks apps that would allow the VGA display to appear on it's own Screen in Amiga OS 3.x?

 I.E. Have an internal Rasberry Pii with it's display and input controlled from within Amiga OS...

Oh to dream.

Maybe you could run the Macintosh version using an emulator.

Have not tried that.... Lately I've been installing hordes dos games on my linux box. I'm up to like 6 gigs and counting. I  would prefer to get them running point and click... I have alot of icons and shortcuts to create...

When most dos games were out, I missed playing most of them because I was running a bbs 24/7 on my main pc at the time... I mostly used my amiga 500 for myself and the pc for the multi node bbs... Its funny to see how much I missed.

I forgot to ask... Does anyone know a good joystick that works with dosbox?

Will an old school one that plugs into the sb joystick port work? gotta check the back of my machine but I think it has this port, otherwise will a usb joystick work with dosbox? I never used a joystick much on a linux box.

Umm there were some bridgeboards, but aside from KCS the other most common, and for A500, would be Vortex ATonce (I suppose..?).

Compared to KCS hmm.. ATOnce has a 286 instead of 8086 but also worse graphics emulation capabilities, AFAIR. I think installing it was also a bit more complicated as I THINK you also had to bridge it to somewhere. BUT it was mounted over CPU so maybe it's possible to have both KCS and ATOnce.. at once x). And I think Vortex had no RAM of it's own. (there was a "Plus" version with memory on board)

Sorry for offtopic.

Cheers, the KCS has sound blaster and adlib support too.

It looks beautiful, but winuae is misleading. It may run on winuae at 30 fps, even in aga mode but if you take it on a real A1200 it will run on 1 fps. You know what I mean? :-)

Well, he didn't say it runs 30 fps (don't see anything saying that on the shot aswell).

WinUAE can run with pretty real speed as long as it's set up properly.. :d If it's set to run "fastest possible" then oh well :p

Even if its for winuae only, or for amithlon, its still a great adition to classic amiga os.

If your running a dedicated emulation system, you can add thousands and thousands of
dos games to your fun box.

Keep up the great work novacoder!
