Excellent dosbox port Ultima Underworld is PLAYABLE on my G2, which is frankly amazing. Support FM synthesis emulation, but slows down a bit. One "bug"/observation: The settings in /sdcard/dosbox.conf override
Fantastic that I can play dos games, but really needs a joystick overlay pretty bad...... Keep up the good effort!
How do you do joystick configuration in a game? You can't hold a finger in a corner and touch a joystick button at the same time.
Guys, while his business model may be questionable, selling gpl software is actually OK. The catch is, anyone can redistribute it for free.
Ridiculous Modified Source? Why are you releasing modified source? The same source should be released that was used to build the binary that is available to users.
Wolfenstein 3d runs no issue, no tweaking needed. Touchscreen worked as mouse control perfect. Great for old dos games. Still testng it.
Do not purchase this app. The developer is breaching the GPL. I urge you to not support this behavior.
GPL Violation This product is based on the GPL licensed DOSBox code, but the developer(or actually poster) is refusing to release the code as required by the GPL.
So far so good Optimus V Bought this to run X-Com and was amazed at how easy it was to get the game up and running. Runs fairly slow on the Optimus V, hoping updates will fix this.
