Re: Dosbox. What have you got running.

On FastDOSBox, windows 3.1 is pretty smooth (well like on 386 @ 25Mhz). I spent couple of hours on Windows 95 (OSR2) but got unlucky at the end of the installation process.
Not sure it makes sense to run Windows 95 on a RPi anyway.

FastDSOBOX 1.5 is just now available on the Pi Store.

It will bring you a better experience than Dosbox 0.74.

Re: DosBox @ 1920x1080

Hi,

I just finished today FastDosBox 1.5, it fixes this issue by using dispmanx.

FastDosBox should be available (hopefully) in a few on the Pi Store after their approval.
