Windows 9x games emulation?
« on: July 21, 2021, 02:04:14 PM »
I'm thinking of adding 9x games (windows 95, window 98, windows ME) in my attractmode ((or build) is this what it's called).

Should I use an emulator?
Dosbox
Dosbox-X
PCem

Or just try to make it work in windows 10?

You have a serious machine to be able to do that....


Note though that emulation like that is really still hit or miss. Sure you can add them. I add native games to my system using scripts. Know though depending on the games you want to use there maybe modern versions of that games out there...For example Command & Conquer: Red Alert can be played on a modern machine without and emulations or "hacks" Heck even Doom can be  run that way now.

If you are interested about that you can IM me...
If you want to try to set up with windows 95 98 ect then you can answer here on the thread..but like I said that is hit or miss and can be difficult at best.
People want life easy..then complain about it

I see. So, emulating windows 9x games is really not a thing if you're using windows anyway. Thank you.
