MSDOS for Raspberry PI

MSDOS en Raspberry PI

Para todos los que quieran recordar viejos tiempos y jugar algunos juegos “pre-historicos” de las primeras épocas de los PC en MS-DOS como WOLFENSTEIN 3D, Kings Quest, Prince of Persia, Street Fighter II y aplicaciones tipo  Windows I, II y III ,Lotus 123  y muchas más, está disponible rpix86, un emulador de MSDOS que funciona sobre debían directamente y sin ningún ajuste externo.

El modulo de 4×20 caracteres utilizado es un experimento que vamos a publicar en unos días, comprueba si tienes correo en gmail, avisa con un sonido cuando llega y además mide la temperatura de la CPU, está programado en Python y está funcionando en paralelo a Wolf 3D

Que Hardware emula:

  • CPU: 80486 processor, including the protected mode features (for running DOS4GW games) but without virtual memory support. The emulation runs at a speed of around 20MHz 80486 (which equals a 40MHz 80386) machine.
  • Memory: 640KB of low memory, 4MB of EMS memory and 16MB of XMS memory.
  • Super-VGA graphics, with a maximum resolution of 640×480 with 256 colors.
  • SoundBlaster 2.0 (including AdLib-compatible FM sounds) sound card.
  • US keyboard.
  • Two-button mouse.

Developer’s Description

Simple usage:

  • To start, simply run rpix86. Start with rpix86 -? to get help for optional command line parameters.
  • To exit, type ‘exit’ on the command prompt, or press Ctrl-C.
  • During first run rpix86 will ask your permission to download 4DOS.COM command line interpreter from JP Software FTP site. Without it rpix86 will not work.

Known problems and missing features:

  • rpix86 does not support x86 parity flag or auxiliary carry flag. There is some special code in rpix86 to enable running some games that use these flags, but some games simply can not be emulated because of this.
  • Virtual memory is not supported. This means that Windows will not run in rpix86, nor any protected mode game that uses virtual memory.
  • Floating point opcodes are currently not supported, but this support will improve in future versions.
  • Only files and directories conforming to the DOS 8.3 naming scheme are supported. No long file name support.
  • Hardware mouse cursor is still missing in graphics modes. Many games use their own mouse cursor, which does work, though.
