DosBox Turbo on Android
« on: March 16, 2014, 11:16:54 PM »
Anyone got any experience with it?   I'm trying to run Star Trek A Final Unity on it, and it's super slow on my HTC One S.  Runs fine on my PC.  I would have thought the HTC would have enough juice to power it (dual core 1.5ghz) so I think it's just the settings.   If someone is really familiar with the app, I would appreciate some pointers - otherwise I will be tweaking till the cows come home.

Space Quest, Monkey Island, Police Quest, Kings Quest, Indiana Jones series, Legend of Kryandia, etc etc... they're all great.   I'm hoping that running this stuff on my phone will let my kids enjoy these old games.  I'm not sure that they'd be too interested in them on a regular PC.   I  haven't played any of the Star Trek games, so I'm really looking forward to this one.

twice....   people are even running windows 98 through dosbox.   That's my next step.  I need to get Star Trek Away Team running on this thing.   I'm really looking forward to when phones are fast enough to run things as good as a modern desktop computer.   It's not perfect for Star Trek A Final Unity, but its pretty good.  I want perfect though.
