DOSBox 0.71 released

Try the latest version in their download section. The DOSBox Guide will be updated soon.

Monday, July 30th, 2007 - Qbix A bugfix release this time, but we couldn't resist adding a few new exciting features:
  • Added a new recompiling cpu core which is easier to port!

  • Added a x86_64 and a mipsel_32 recompiling core.

  • Fixed hangups on certain platforms after long gameplay of several games.

  • Fix several joystick bugs.

  • Improved cdrom support. (fixes for audio, iso and detection.)

  • Improved SVGA and VESA. (detection and display)

  • Fixed a few textmodes and improved ansi emulation a bit.

  • Fixed pcspeaker and certain types of soundeffects.

  • Added undocumented mousebackdoor.

  • Made mount and imgmount a bit easier to use. (ioctl by default, support
    for ~ and ~username, auto size guessing for images)

  • Fix a few compilation problems on various hosts and a general code

  • Several small fixes that improve compatibility.
The compatibility should be the same as 0.70 aside from the games we fixed. (see the Changelog for details)


Master of Orion II Digital Download on Atari.com

Finally, Atari announces the Digital Download version of Master of Orion II. And I have to remove my earlier rant about their price. They had a technical problem this morning - the price of the download version of MOO3 was displayed.

Atari offers MOO2 for very fair $9.95.
