Hey guys, let's start a thread on listing working apps and games.
My testing environments are as follows :
IPaq 2210, o/c to 530Mhz, Bochs 486DX plugin
Prince of Persia (VGA), fully playable
Gold Axe (VGA), very slow
A-Train (VGA), slow, lower part of the screen has been chopped
Warcraft 1, slow, mouse doesn't work
Cannon Fodder 2, freeze after showing the "Virgin" logo
Settlers 1, mouse doesn't work, lower part of the screen has been chopped
Simcity, playable only in monochrome mode (I have set the EGA bios detection)
King Quest 6 (some display corruption)
King Quest 5 (same as kq6, only works from mounted CF card as C
Eye of the Beholder 2 (fully playable)
Might and Magic Swords of Xeen (fully playable)
Lure of the Temptress (fully playable)
Dark Seed (lowest part of the screen is covered by keyboard, otherwise good speed)
Elder Scrolls: Arena
Elder Scrolls: Daggerfall
Leisure Suit Larry 1 VGA / 5
Might and Magic 3
Eye of the Beholder 3
I have a Jornada 820 running PocketDOS with the DOSBox emulator. I have a game called Jill of the Jungle which loads and runs but very slowly.
For Pazu: How did you get Atrain to work, I have tried that one under 1.09 and it fails to load at all. It did load but went straight to exit. I added Files=20 and Buffers=20 to the config.sys but that causes the game to fail to load. Under 1.08, it loaded, just exited also.
The CPU plug-ins should be used as a last resort if you're not able to load software using the built-in emulator. The DOSBox and Bochs CPU plug-ins are several orders of magnitude slower than the built-in emulator.
There are several versions of ATrain, as I remember. I havent do any changes to autoexec for file and buffer, just use all defaults. Mine need to install the game in PocketDOS to select sound and video settings in order to play.
I can play Might & Magic 3 using this newest version of Pocket DOS. I can't get Xeen to work though. It tells me I dont have any ems memory and I set it to the max setting. Any tips on what I am missing?

I'll get off games here for a bit.
Back & Forth 2.11
Word Perfect 5.1
Lotus Magellan all work fine
Lotus 1-2-3 v. 2.2 works OK, I think, but one of my spreadsheets wouldn't load so I'm not sure
However, the app I consider most critical is Lotus Agenda v. 2. This will work IF Expanded memory is turned off, making the program work pretty slow. If expanded memory is turned on in the program, it proceeds to trash the database that's open. Expanded memory worked OK in PocketDOS 1.08.
Also, there have been a couple of times where I've had to press each key twice to register the keystroke.
