Dosbox for nspire?
« on: November 21, 2012, 11:41:58 pm »
Would it be possible, in theory, for Dosbox to be ported over to ndless? It uses SDL, which has already been accomplished on the nspire. I was wondering if the source code could be used for old dos programs such as Zork.
Hmmm.... I wonder how to do this.....

This has already been discussed on this thread. http://ourl.ca/17257 That would be doable, but it's presumed to be really slow.

Also Zork already got ported natively to Ndless anyway (http://ourl.ca/16483).

However, nFrotz only loads .z files... there's no support for .z3, .z5, or .z8 files which are the most common for me, at least.
