    Dapple 0.94a Released!

    By XXLEnigma,

    Dapple is a Apple ][ emulator for DOS.




    * CPU fix to SBC opcode, fixing "Jeopardy!" and, I presume, also "Spy Vs. Spy"? Released as hot update.



    * Removed "dapple.pgx" reading, replacing it with "dapple.ini", a text

    configuration file.

    * Also, "dapple.chr" files are no longer used (they are a big waste of space in other versions too, as they are only 2 bytes), and if you used a modified charset, you will have to set it again. I am sorry for this.

    * I have removed Detox from the distribution, but will provide it separately on Sourceforge. Additionally, a binary-only distribution shall coexist with the source-and-binary distribution for those who would rather not download the source code.

    * Additionally, tweaked the waitstate method, so the delay code is never executed if hold=0 (it ran once?), but I do not seem to notice any improvement.



    * Made setting 6656 byte drive buffer turn on the fast drive mode. It should have done this in 0.92, but clueless me forgot to do it.

    DOSBox v0.56 Released

    By XXLEnigma,

    A new version of DOS Box, a PC emulator with DOS for Windows, was released on Saturday. Here's the list of changes:



    DOSBOX:The program now has support for config files, read the README file for more information.


    CPU:Fixed/added some instructions, made string instructions interruptable.


    VGA:Small fixes and screenshot support was added.


    SBLASTER:Some more DSP commands and added some extra functions to the dma.


    PCSPEAKER:Cleaned up sound and added support for "RealSound" in some games.


    DOS:Rewrote most of the FCB calls and a lot of the file and drive handling routines were updated.


    TIMER:Improved the emulation of highres timers.


    MOUSE:Autolocked now when you click on the window with a game that can use mouse.


    DEBUG:Added support for better single stepping and better breakpoint and logging options. With this release the language file has been removed, you can now load one from the config file or a command line switch. Most of the other work has been done on internal rewrites, to hopefully be pretty close to compiling on big-endian machines.Let me point out here, DOSBox doesn't run any protected mode games, stop bothering us about those. In general this will mean games coming out after 1993, you can recognize most since they have

    DOS4GW.EXE in the game directory.
