Overview:

Amiga 68k port of DosBox v0.74.

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 and AmigaOS.
Unfortunately this special optimized 68k port is still very slow on real
classic hardware.


Requirements:

1) An AGA Amiga.
2) 68060 processor or better.
3) 64 MB of RAM.
4) AHI installed and configured (see links section below).
5) CAMD library installed and configured for native MIDI playback (see links
   section below).
6) Some old PC games or demos.


Features:

 * SDL based port
 * Native MIDI support (CAMD)
 * AHI Sound support

 
Configuration Options:

The 'closewb' setting can be used to close the Workbench.
The 'displaytype' setting can be used to set your display mode (PAL or NTSC).
When running from the Shell you must specify a stack of at least 300,000.
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).


Performance Considerations:

1) The number of cycles you set for the CPU emulation is critical, too high
   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 you should really be using BlizKick, Apollo users
   should be using RemApollo.
4) Fast File System isn't, use PFS3 instead.
5) Use v4.18 of AHI as the later versions are too slow on real hardware
6) If you are using Paula, stick with the 'FAST' 8 bit Mono/Stereo++ modes for
   (AHI prefs).
7) A 16 bit sound card *might* be faster with a 16 bit mode (AHI prefs).


Limitations:

1) No network support.
2) No physical CDROM support.
