    Can the Ds play DOS games?

    You can play Scumm based dos games (like Monkey Island) with ScummVM DS. [​IMG]

    There were some rumblings/initial work done on a dosbox port but nothing came of it as far as games are concerned.

    There is however SCUMMVM (monkey island, sam and max and so on) and a lot of the dos/windows 95 era FPS titles (hexen, heretic, quakes, doom, duke3d, rise of the triad, wolf3d just off the top of my head) a fair few ports (elite has something happening and there are a multitude of remakes) and some of systems which the games appeared on as well as dos have been emulated quite well.

    Man I would kill to play a few old wargames through something like DOSbox.

    I'll likely have access to a more powerful hand held devise sooner than a means to play it on a DS though.

    I would love to get a Pandora handheld so I can emulate all the past systems, but I don't think It will be available in retail stores and I wouldn't never spend $300 online.
