Overview:

Amiga AGA 68k port of DosBox 0.74.

DOSBox is a DOS-emulator that uses the SDL-library which makes DOSBox very easy
to port to different platforms. DOSBox has already been ported to many different
platforms, such as Windows, BeOS, Linux, MacOS X and AmigaOS.

Unfortunately this special cut-down 68k port is still very slow on real classic
hardware.


Requirements:

1) An AGA Amiga with a fast 68060 processor
2) AHI installed (v4.18 recommended)
3) 3.1 ROMS (3.0 ROMS may cause it to run slowly)
4) Some old PC games or demos


Features:

 * AGA SDL port
 * MIDI support
 * AHI Sound support
 * Fullscreen and window mode support

 
Configuration Options:

You must run DOSBox from the Workbench, running from the Shell is not supported.
The AHI device used will be the one configured in your AHI Prefs (Unit 0).
You will need to install the CAMD library if you want to use an external MIDI
device.
The DOSBox log file will tell you which core it is actually using (may be
different to the config setting).
Some games need a mouse sensitivity of 200 (config setting) for some strange
reason.
The tooltype 'CLOSE_WB' can be used to close the Workbench (3.1 ROMS
recommended).
The tooltype 'DISPLAY_MODE' can be used to set your display mode (PAL or NTSC).


Performance Considerations:

1) The number of cycles you set for the CPU emulation is critical, too high for
your real CPU will stall the emulation.
2) The fastest core to use is 'simple' but it's also the least compatible and
may crash.
3) If you have a Blizzard/Apollo you should really be using BlizKick/RemApollo
to get most speed out of your Amiga.
4) Fast File System is actually not, use PFS3 instead.
5) Stick with v4.18 of AHI as the later versions without the 'FAST' modes are
slower.
6) Running in a window with an 8 bit screen mode will be slower.
 

Limitations:

1) No CDROM support
2) No network support
3) No joystick support


Version History:

0.74.009 - Initial release.
0.74.010 - Added back support for 486/586 CPU emulation.
0.74.011 - Fixed up mouse handling (SDL fix).
