* Dosbox getting Voodoo

Printer-friendly page Print this story   Email this to a friend
PC Games/Hardware/Microsoft
Dosbox may be getting significantly better soon: the team are working to put in actual Voodoo graphics emulation, getting a number of old games to run in even better graphics modes.

Right now DOSBox can?t manage Glide games by itself, and there is no such thing like a true PC emulator able to simulate the behaviour of the SST-1 chipset. The new engine by Kekko and the other contributors will dismiss the need to use a particular DOSBox build (originally created by developer ?gulikoza?) to access the Glide libraries on the host computer and the external wrappers (emulation layers designed to convert API Glide calls in native DirectX or OpenGL calls meaningful to modern 3D technologies) like OpenGLide or the Glidos commercial product based on it.
We wish them well in this!
