  1. Latest SVN of DosBox on NT3.5x,9x,NT4

    After banging my head on it for a week I finally gave up on Mingw. Latest ver I can compile DOSBox that works on Windows 95 is v4.9.3. Anything later and there's an illegal instruction error. The good news is that today I switched to Mingw64 w/ gcc 7.1.0 and as long as I use the msvcrt.dll from Windows 2000 then DOSBox works! I've attached a static binary of the mingw64 build. It's still a WIP Also I did some tests with hxrt in DOS (in vmware) in the thread for anyone that's interested. Next step is to drop kick the mingw guide and update the mingw-w64 guide and then verify that all dependencies are working.
  2. https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=55706&p=616322#p616322 I'm working on a guide for compiling DOSBox. The above thread includes an attachment with builds for NT3.51 and NT4 of the DOSbox SVN from 9-18-2017 using SDL 1.2.15 Compiled using VS2008 with LegacyExtender. The MinGW builds are older, don't have working ddraw and only work on 95-NT4 with Active Desktop installed. Plan to update the MinGW builds soon.
  3. Last Versions of Software for Windows 98SE

    DOSBox for NT3.5x,(9x,NT4 with and without Active Desktop)-2000 https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=55706&p=612195#p609435
  4. All, I'm working on a guide to compile DOSBox. Currently I have a guide that covers Visual Studio 2002-2017, next will be MinGW on Windows and then Linux. Guide: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=55706&p=611833#p609435 I've attached the binaries to the first post. I'd appreciate it if you could test the releases and offer any suggestions. Currently this guide is only intended for compiling the official DOSBox source. No third party patches. The NT3.5x to Windows 2000 binaries were compiled using VS2008 with Legacy Extender The XP and Vista+ binaries were compiled with VS2017.
  5. Qemu 1.0.1 on Win2k

    Just zero out the last value. Yep I forgot about the 64bit processor requirement for the latest versions but AFAIK the host OS can still be 32bit. Here's a slightly older release if you still can't get it to work: http://vpsland.superglobalmegacorp.com/install/qemu10-i386-for-win2k.exe
  6. Qemu 1.0.1 on Win2k

    Hexediting qemu.exe (or any qemu executable) and replacing "freeaddrinfo","getaddrinfo", and "getnameinfo" with "gethostname" should work fine....at least it did last time I tried it. KQemu isn't supported any more with later versions of Qemu only IIRC Qemu 0.9x supports it so you are really better off with Vmware Workstation 7/Player 4 (using blackwingcat patches) if you need speed. AFAIK Vmware Workstation 8/Player 5 are not yet working on Windows 2000.
  7. KernelEx 4.5.2

    Qemu Manager v7.0 works in 98SE/ME/NT4 (with some modifications). Using that I booted up Tiny Core Linux v4.0.2 in 98SE today and loaded up Chrome and FireFox v7.0.1. So you can probably load up a 256mb RAM XP with IE8 installed under that and just use it for web browsing. See bottom post: http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewtopic.php?p=248386#248386
  8. PE Tool for creating patches

    Are you guys doing any kind of debugging or is this just guesswork? Example: http://www.ndis.com/ndis-debugging/virtual/vmwaresetup.htm
  9. http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewtopic.php?t=12102 I've tested the latest browsers on various versions of Windows in the above thread. If anyone has anything to add then post it here or at the linked thread. The TODO is listed in the second post.
  10. Crysis 2

    Since it runs on XP it should also be able to run on 2000. Try running the game and for any errors you receive then use Blackwingcat's KDW wrapper to fix those errors.
  11. Deus Ex 3

    I haven't tried it yet but considering it works in XP it should work in 2000 as well. IIRC Steam still works on Windows 2000 so you should be fine there. As for any other dependencies then just run the game and when you receive an error then use Blackwingcat's KDW Wrapper to solve the dependency issues. Just like with any PC game you should really go by the recommended requirements and not the minimum. You could probably get by with a dual core but it's really meant for quad or more. As for the graphics\videos they aren't OMG amazing since it's multiplatform but they are good enough and not worth complaining too much about although just like most multiplatform games you'll see alot of textures that aren't that great.

    WildBill, Could you offer a link to a bundle of all of your updates? Would make it easier for people new to the thread.

  14. You can actually use 2.0.4 on Windows 2000 but you'll need to download some modified files from Blackwingcat's website. Personally I'd stick with Vmware Player v3 which works on Windows 2000: http://win2kgaming.site90.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=553
  15. You can disable the licensing service. It won't affect functionality in any way it's just there for tracking your licenses. (and of course there are better ways to track licenses anyway).
