Dos demos under virtual pc

category: general [glöplog]
 
The sound has died on my old laptop, so i'm now without a decent way of watching dos demos. So I was wondering if anyone has had much success running them under vmware/virtual pc/whatever?

I've tried this before with vmware and dos 6.22, and got some old stuff like hplus working ok, but the video was waay too slow to be acceptable. Any suggestions on ways of improving performance, getting sound working etd?

Thanks unlock, thats a good start :)

looks like vpc is ok for some parts, not so good for others. I suspect vmware is the same if i can get the video working at ok speed.

I'll see if we have vpc here, and give them both a good going over. I suspect many problems will be caused by the nasty hardware tricks used in many of the old demos, but if some of the old greats will work at all I'll be happy.

If I can get some stuff working with these, I'll write up another article when I get chance.

Huh, seems I'm not very observant :) Just looking for the email address of whoever wrote that article, and finally realised it was you :)

Did you look any further into it (using gus emu for e.g.)?
