    Compatibility is getting better all the time. I just can't stop admiring this guy, even though he's working on two projects (DSi / DSTWO) at the same time, he never fails to deliver.
    Warcraft 1 is working to some extent, which was one of my favorite childhood games. Can't wait till he properly gets it running.
    Going to test if Bloodbowl works too, me and my friend used to play that alot.

    I can't wait till the day he gets Elder Scrolls Arena working. It is possible with the DSTWO.

    According to its PC requirements
    "386/25 MHZ, DOS 5.0, 4MB RAM, 25MB HD Space, VGA graphics card or better, Mouse, Soundcard "

    Yea, it should be playable at some point with the emulator. It might even run it now since he's added some new opcodes.

    That would definately be a nice list of games to have running.

    Warcraft
    Bloodbowl
    Elder Scrolls
    Throw in x-com too. (right now there's the issue of the looping geoscape and battlescape exe's)

    Heretic's now working.

    Archer Macleans Pool - Playable - Works, though no sound.
    Blake Stone - Playable - Works, though sound not fully working.
    Heretic - Playable - Works, though is a little slow.


    Also Arena isn't yet working (it currently gives a "not enough EMS" error at startup)

    I tried running Warcraft, it starts loading dos4gw but then gives me some opcode errors and it never runs it.
    Someone else having more luck with it?

    Yea, tried Elder scrolls Arena too and got the same EMS error.

    Could Doom Run on this?

    I think so, I believe most of the testing was in fact done with doom.

    Yes, Doom is used for a lot of his testing, and it runs (without sound last I remember) in DS2x86 as well.

    Well neither me or Master_Thief can get Warcraft to run atm. Maybe Pate tried a shareware version or something.
    I've tried the shareware version of Doom and got it running. Haven't tried the full version though.

    EDIT:
    Just tried Warcraft DEMO and it runs. So I'm guessing that's the version Patrick used to test it.
    You can get the DEMO here if you want to try it:

    Sorry if it's not the point, but can't you just use the doom emulator?

    I didnt see a thread for regular 'ol dsx86, so i'll post my excitement here=D

    I just loaded my XLs side-slot SD card up with the newest beta, and am now enjoying some Commander Keen via the sudoku exploit. The touch screen even works, yay=)

    Thank you Pate!

    ...now to test some more games...

    Yep, FINALLY an emulator that can be run through Sudoku. I don't know if it's just my SD cards or what, but loading is much quicker than running DSX86 from my DS2.
    One of the games I notice clearly taking advantage of the hardware is Prince of Persia 2: it chugs pretty badly unless you run it through SH, at which point it runs pretty much at full speed.

    I've seen him writing on his own page, that he got it to work on the Cyclo iEvo. I am not able to get it to work on my iEvo though. In the regular DSL-mode it works just fine, but when i switch my iEvo into DSi-mode it just hangs at the initialization of FAT. I'll tinker some more with it tomorrow.

    Arena requires 4MB of EMS memory and DS2x86 still only emulates 1.5MB of EMS. It does emulate 16MB? of XMS but arena doesn't support XMS only EMS. At least Moraff's World is working great (in 320x200 EGA and MCGA mode) and really benefits from the increased speed.

    Disabled the Homebrew layer comaptibility. I'm able to run it in DSi mode on my iEvo without problem. [​IMG]
