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

I pray with all my heart that DOSBoxAGA ACTUALLY becomes a reality!! By bringing DOSBox into classic Amiga NovaCoder would have given it a new VERY LONG life span indeed :):)
 
Playing PC games through AGA is SWEEETER than ever!!

Yep it will take a lot of work to make it fast enough to be worth releasing.

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.

PCTask is super simple to set up.

You can even use the "isomount" script from Aminet to install it without even needing a floppy... you can use the images 1.44mb from bootdisk.com..

Thank you so much for that link, I'll give that a go on my amithlon box :)

6) Where can I get the free version? In Aminet it is a demo only.

Look closer :)

* jaws drop * What would it's speed be like on a real A1200?? If the speed is actually the same as the speed in WinUAE from youtube...can you release it now? You have actually done what majority consider not possible!!! I would LOVE TO PLAY ULTIMA 7 on my A1200! I would love to play DOS games on my A1200!!! 20 GB HD is no longer sufficient for me!!

What speed are you emulating at? I.E. in real Amiga terms.

No sorry guys, lots of work to do to make it quicker before I'll release it.

Matt is also working on a dynamic 68k core, that should also help the speed up when it's ready to be plugged in.

* wipes droll * I can hardly wait. I am wondering NovaCoder....I know I am dreaming....oh God I know I am dreaming. But is it possible..just curious out of the blues curious can I install Windows 98 Me on this? Because if it can do Windows 98 Me on a 20 fps or even 16 fps I can finally have a single MMORPG game on my A1200..but..but if it cannot do that..and just be able to run DOS games on it..I am ok with that. I am happy with that. I have no objection with that :D :D :D :sealed:

There is a source fork out there that allows for 98 to run and for Glide emulation, but I'm very much sure that is a bit much for a meager 680x0 to handle no matter if it's running at 80Mhz or not.

AROS could in theory do it though. I've ran 98 at a nice speed in AROS, but it was standard DOSbox and did not include all the bonus and much needed features of the forked edition.

I'm only hoping to reach 386sx speed on my A1200, in other words fast enough to be able play great games like Wing Commander 2, X-Wing, Ultima Underworld etc.  

Obviously if it ever got up to 486 speeds on real hardware then that would be awesome but it's way too early to tell at this stage.
