Re: nglide without DosBox - glide2x.ovl?

I'm afraid that's not possible, the NTVDM approach has been ditched by every wrapper author many years ago (I myself didn't even bother implementing it). Nowadays full emulation is the only reasonable approach. Sure, it will eat all your CPU cycles, but it guarantees it will work for many, many yea...

nglide without DosBox - glide2x.ovl?

Long story short, I'm trying to play Carmageddon 1 on Linux via a Windows XP 32 bit virtual machine. It works beautifully with dgvoodoo but dgvoodoo doesn't support fixing the aspect ratio. Running DosBox inside this Windows VM for nglide doesn't work (it's far too slow), dgvoodoo gets 50-500fps at ...

Re: nGlide and DOSBox

Seems to depend how much is on screen, but at the start of the race with all the cars it's between 10 and 15fps, that is at 1680x1050 though. It never uses more than 10% CPU (Though the i7 probably isnt great for single threaded stuff as it registers as 8 CPUs, I don't know whether this is the probl...

Re: nGlide and DOSBox

What are the steps to get this working with Carmageddon and DosBox? I can't tell at all if it's set up correctly. I downloaded CosmicDan's dosbox build, then installed nGlide. When I run carmav it just goes to a black screen. If I press keys I can hear the sound effects, but the screen is just black...
