Yeah when I'm using my new comp (HP-Pavillion, AMD Athlon 2.2 GHz, WinXP
), I have no choice but to use DOSBox. The only trouble I have with DOSBox is that it simply eats
all my CPU, else it's just too slow. Other than it, it's a close second to an OS that actually supports DOS (like the Windows 9x series, or better yet, DOS itself
Anyway, when it comes to running old games like that, my best computer is my Compaq Presario, 900 MHz, WinME. It plays DOS games like magic without the need of any emulator, especially with the modern MIDI card breathing new life into it, but the trouble with this comp is the ME explains everything.
It's been fried for years, and unfortunately at this rate I have no option but to either replace it with a comp with similar specs, or move on.
Way things look, if I do get that used laptop, I'll run it on a Win98/GNU Linux dual boot, though it just makes makes more sense to go for a modern processor, so I'm not completely
stuck back in time.
