View Full Version : Okay, I really need help with this!

Okay, let's start at the begin,
On that post about what to do next we were talking about the speed of the n64-emulators, and the result: "a dos emulator is probably faster but hard to program because there aren't APIs like Direct3D and Opengl in dos". Now I decided to "try" to program a dos-emulator. A few years ago I had a little experience with Quickbasic 4.5, so I think that might be the best way to start. Now I need some docs/help how to create a N64-emulator in it. Thanks already!

Give it up. It will get you nowhere. You don't even have enough experience to do an n64 emulator.

/me falls on floor laughing his ass off

In DOS, using BASIC. Classic :D

/me wipes tears from eyes.

You can get N64 docs on the EmuTalk Downloads....

As Doom said, you don't have enough programming experience.

why would dos be faster ?

I never used a real dos... but afaik dos doesn't take much
resources.. :baaa:

Umm... I'm confused here a bit.
You want to emulate an N64 by emulating MSDOS?

That is you want to emulate something with NO OS, a simple BOOT system from a ROM using something complicated and clunky like MSDOS.. emulated MSDOS?

Are you wanting to make an MSDOS emulator?
Like This? (http://bochs.sourceforge.net/)

SculleatR: Ummm yes you have,
DOS = Disk Operating System
Windows is a glorified DOS that's mutated into.. God only knows! :)

I'm still not pleased with anything Microsoft has done lately. Maybe we'll be lucky and they'll get back to serving the customer :)

Cyberman: He wants to code a N64 emu, for the use
in dos. Not as DOSEMU. :)

And Cyberman, you should check your PM's more often. ;)
