DOSBox 0.74 v2.0 A320 Open Dingux and Ben Nanonote OpenWRT

Updated versions of DOSBox 0.74 for  A320 Open Dingux and Ben Nanonote OpenWRT.




What's New?

Swapfile = Better performing Dynamic Recompiler
Make sure you are using swapfiles on both A320 Open Dingux and Ben Nanonote OpenWRT.
This allows larger dynamic recompiler caches and as a result much faster code execution and DOSBox is on a whole a lot more stable. Civilization plays super fast now! :)
Also included are some fixes to the dyna-rec from d_smagin's DOSBox port to GCW-Zero.

A320 Open Dingux
Changes to the dosbox.conf including increasing default memsize.

Ben Nanonote
The 'del' key ('red arrow' + backspace) is now working - was mapped to something wrong.
Volume control using the keyboard now working. There is a new entry in the dosbox.conf to accommodate a default value.

nanonote_volume = 50


Other changes to the dosbox.conf including enabling the soundblaster.

You can create a 64MB swapfile on the Nanonote's NAND using the following commands:


# dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile bs=1024 count=65536
# mkswap /swapfile
# swapon /swapfile



Alternatively you can create a 64MB swapfile on the Nanonote's microSD using the following commands:


# dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/mmcblk0p1/swapfile bs=1024 count=65536
# mkswap /mnt/mmcblk0p1/swapfile
# swapon /mnt/mmcblk0p1/swapfile

To enable the swap after reboot you will have to re-run:

swapon /mnt/mmcblk0p1/swapfile

Or you can make it auto-mount using the /etc/init.d/ system.
