No one? lol, ok, for those interested, I'll just leave this here:

Been playing around with it for most of the night, managed to copy an image of Windows 95 over to Aemula by modifying its format parameters and appending the header. Unfortunately upon trying to boot it it gives me the error "Windows does not run on MS-DOS 7.0 or Lower", which is strange because I used to boot from it in 6.22. Oh well, I'll keep trying.

iDOS 2.0.1 question -- Does anyone know if you can assign two keystrokes to the same "joystick" button? I'd like to use one button to trigger both ALT and Q (quick combat command in the AD&D gold box games).

I also want to give it a try and bring some of my old classic games to my Aemula app. I started with Dune 1, for which I had to create a > 256MB image, since the game files are around 400MB. The game also loads on the phone but the music seems to lag. In addition, since the game is usually mouse-controlled, I cannot interact with the game environment. What can I do? I also got two other games (Flying Tigers and a german game called Eishockey Manager) which used to run on dosbox but do not load in Aemula. Flying Tigers leaves me with a blinking command line cursor, Eishockey Manager does start, but I cant go past the loading screen, since it requires a left click. Also the colors seems to be strange.

Does it run any better on the new iPad? I got iDOS when it first came out and once the excitement wore down, it was sad realizing the worthwhile games ran horribly slow.

Playing right now: Peggle Nights, Plants vs Zombies, Death Rally, Shadow Era, Angry Birds, Anomaly Warzone Earth.

It would help to know your definition of worthwhile games, as that is a completely subjective criteria. That said, I have access to a third gen iPad. I tried running Elder Scrolls arena on it, and after cranking up the cycles enough, it ran at the same speed as it does on my netbook (via DOSBox). That said, the controls are too demanding without being reworked for the device, IMO.

All I wanted was to run the original Command and Conquer.
