    cool, anyone have any reports of any games being playable at full or near full speed? It mentions Keen 4, if that plays well, I'll be very happy

    I have Oregon Trail. Dont remember if it's a DOS or Windows game though. Is there a version of PC's Oregon Trail that would work on this, or some other way to play it on DS?

    EDIT: I know it's on DSi but we only have the original DS.

    2nd EDIT: Nevermind.. Looking at the description of the emulator, i highly doubt it will run well enough (if at all)

    More and more games are getting playable and some are showing more stuff for those that aren't playable yet. I'm hoping he can get Galactix working. It's a fun little shooter game [​IMG].

    These links should be part of that news post.

    DSx86 Homepage which has the current emulation specs and the downloads.

    Also, the current GBAdev Discussion Thread

    http://dsx86.patrickaalto.com/

    put DSx86.ini in /data/dsx86/
    put 4DOS.com in /data/dsx86/4dos/

    then once the shell is loaded c:\ is the root of the flash card, so navigate like dos to your games


    Btw I can confirm that Lotus III : Turbo challenge works.

    OMF, Outrun, Trolls, Jazz Jackrabbit 1, Highway hunter, Zone 66 do not though.
