Err, no. :) High-end would be a P200MMX (with 32 MByte RAM); this way you can watch all the MMX-only late-DOS demos and intros

mmm, to be honest p200mmx is a bit slow for dos\mmx-only stuff, something like p2-350 will suit better but it also suffers from pascal crt bug. so win32 versions to the rescue! :)

about dos\486 compo - agreed, that will be a nice challenge I guess! ;)

by the way, yet another dos demo in progress :)

Yeah, DOS rulz ... Do you target oldschool machines, too, or make demos for dos but running on modern hardware ?
Just make more DOS-demos, that will determine any possible platform for any possible future DOS-compos

ahem...vbe20+mmx (so something like p233mmx or even p2), and yes, that's the reason (hi dosbox!) why I also doing win32 version (in fact it already can be built by just using diffirent target in makefile ;)

This thread needs more 8088.

Isn't obtaining a 286 also kind of a bitch? Myself I've seen only one in the wild once (sometime around 1991). But maybe I'm wrong here.

On my 286/12,5/VGA some dos-demos are working ok, but there are a lot more intros/cracktros that are working fine. Some with adlib and mostly static scenes or vga-effects that do not require a lot cpu power are working good and not to forget "Crystal Dreams works even with 286/10/VGA/SB!"...sorry for that "insider"... :)
probably offtopic, but I just found out: hitting "run" in turbo pascal 7 within dosbox crashes dosbos.

For a longer time there were no real oldshool releases with a target on old machines or old os, like DOS:XT-MDA/CGA, AT-EGA, 386/486 VGA and WIN95/DX6: PI/II SVGA/3DFX.

I really like stuff like that, but they are hard to find:

and here fantastic on voodoo1, looks like fully antialised and performance is stunning!

Not over here. Maybe it's the program you wrote that is crashing dosbox.
added on the 2017-04-19 04:40:07 by trixter trixter
nope, it doesn't crashes, dosbox just treats ctrl+f9 combo (which is used in Turbo Pascal as "run" command) as "close emulator" :)
added on the 2017-04-19 06:01:15 by wbc\\bz7 wbc\\bz7
(afaik it can be remapped, press ctrl+f1 and remap to other combo)

Your original text implied it was somehow TP's fault. Yes, I use a custom keymap config when I program in dosbox.

Oh wow, can't believe I only just found this thread..
I'm in for DOS demos... been releasing for the last three Syntax parties. However they've all been quick party-coded entries.

Need to spend some time actually writing some proper code. Would love to do something 16bit, just need to dig up some old hardware.

https://youtu.be/re40EEKHAqU?t=4m41s EGA/XT what is that demo/intro? can ot be found here?
Possibly Nyan Cat for the IBM PC. Or any of the other countless prods you find when searching for "nyan".
that's cool. thx!
