Homebrew Coder Pate who first off released a DOS Emulator for the Nintendo DS, then moved onto the Android has now posted a release of his DOS Emulator for the Raspberry Pi. For those who dont know a Dos Emulator lets you play old PC Games such as Doom, Duke Nukem 3D, Theme park and similiar games from that period, in short an excellent way to play old games on a new device that was never intended to run the game.
The current status of the emulation is as follows:
- CPU: 80486 processor, including the protected mode features (for running DOS4GW games) but without virtual memory support. The emulation runs at a speed of around 20MHz 80486 (which equals a 40MHz 80386) machine.
- Memory: 640KB of low memory, 4MB of EMS memory and 16MB of XMS memory.
- Super-VGA graphics, with a maximum resolution of 640×480 with 256 colors.
- SoundBlaster 2.0 (including AdLib-compatible FM sounds) sound card.
- US keyboard.
- Two-button mouse.

Short HD video of the demo mode and some actual (bad!) gameplay by me. Dreamcast was hooked up to my LCD monitor via a VGA box. The Sega Dreamcast was a console released in late 1998. It replaced the Sega Saturn. The Dreamcast was discontinued in March 2001. This was the last console ever produced by Sega – they purely publish games now.
One of our DBAs at work decided to go on sabbatical. Part of the company policy is that if you do go on a sabbatical, you have to leave your company laptop behind.
Nick returns to the office on April 1st, so we thought we would play a little joke on him. We are going to say that we had to give his laptop to someone else. In its place, he now has a Commodore 64 sitting on his desk. Check out the photo below!
We didnt have a Commodore 1084 monitor to hand so we had to use a 17″ TFT screen. Obvously, the C64 does not have a VGA or DVI output! Luckily I had a VGA box going spare. This allows you to connect a composite video device to a VGA monitor.
