So I had a great idea that someone could emulate an old PC system (soundcard, graphics card, mouse, drivers, 386/486/pentium 1 architecture) and put it all in an emulator for our spankin fast new computers. Then I did some searching and found out it had been done already w00t.
Now I haven't tested any of these but I will probably tomorrow. If anyone has used them before, wants to try them or knows anything about them then please give some feedback. They might all suck but it's worth a try. Cheers

There isn't a thing I can't run in DOS on here. (At least that I've encountered)

That I can see, but exactly what was ever good in dos that was THAT old?
I can play Doom on here just fine, anything older than that for PC dos, I don't even care to see. Cause before that, PC's sucked.......and Atari ruled.

eg Command & Conquer, Tie Fighter, The Secret of Monkey Island, System Shock, Ultima VII, Doom, Elite:Final Frontier, Warcraft 2 etc
Other stuff can run when you tweak the settings (eg Sam & Max works when you play it without sound). I just think it is a pain in the ass having to change screen resolutions, use slow down utils, change config.nt (config.sys, my old friend hehe) files etc just to make some of these classics run. I want an emulator to make it all quick and easy for me Oh well, maybe it's only me who wants to play these games again

The only thing I have problems running is anything utilizing DOS4GW.EXE (Such as Nesticle. But I canned that extremely innacurate emu long ago anyway)
I've tried some really old dos games that I've found lying around on CD's here (You know like PC gamer discs where they give you some super old game in its full version), and they run way too fast, unless you change the way it utilizes memory.
