Wicked cool!!! I can't wait until this can run DOS games; been waiting for someone to do this for a while. I do have one question though: Can/will this emulator make use of expandable ram (i.e. Opera ram cart, EZ ram cart)?

Short list of games I'll be playing (hopefully) when this x86 emulator is complete enough to run them:

Times of Lore (CLASSIC!)
Any of the AD&D games
EGA Trek
Zany Golf
Zeliard......and
old school Duke Nukem


Keep up the GREAT work Pate!!!

Can it run Windows 7?

Sorry, it only emulates a 186 (basically a 286 without protected mode) so you are limited to Windows 2.11 or lower (that's 2.11, not 3.11). At least Windows 2.1x can take advantage of expanded memory once that is emulated (probably via ezflash 3 in 1 or similar).

Damn, Windows 2.1 - now THAT'S high-tech. I need this emulator.

Sarcasm aside, does anyone know if Maniac Mansion 2 would work? That game is pretty cool, and I'd love to play it on the go (then I'd have both games on my DS - I'm kind of annoyed the second one was only ever for MS-DOS PC and that we still haven't got the first one on Virtual Console. Have a motion-sensitive cursor with it instead of the annoying scrolling cursor, and it'd be perfect).
