That’s right, to the power of three. Three new videos, multiple games within each. Press the Back button and return to normal life, or hit the read link and see how deep the Pickle jar goes.



  1. Dark forces looks nicee.

  2. Holy Cow! Guess what I’m going to download when the pandora comes out…

    looks like dosbox… any chance of us seeing good ole warcraft 2?

  3. N.B. On the forum thread, Pickle says that this is the Pandora running overclocked at 850 Mhz, with DOSBox set to: dynamic core, MAX cycles, 22050 sample rates.


  4. Dark Forces! Time to find the box and cd in the basement! πŸ˜›

  5. I would love to see The Elder Scrolls I – Arena and The Elder Scrolls II – Daggerfall

  6. I read 486 and 3.1 is maybe… So this leaves out Age of Empires I requiring
    # Pentium 90 or higher processor
    # 16 MB RAM
    # Microsoft Windows 95 operating system or Windows NT Workstation 4.0 with Service Pack 3
    # Local SVGA bus video display (with 1 MB VRAM) ?

    I know the obvious answer is NO… But I’d like kinda ask… It’s my first game… It sounds like the pandora dos box can run JUST before my first game… Sigh πŸ™‚

  7. Don’t mean to spam but… I read some people asking for warcraft II… What about this (looking) nice project called Wargus? Never tried, but it looks like an easy way to play Warcraft II on the pandora WITHOUT dos box’ed headache!

  8. @Knop: me too, although Arena needs like 15000cycles to run at a good speed and Daggerfall needs 20000cycles. I think there is a possibility for Arena but I don’t think we will ever be able to play Daggerfall at a decent speed…

  9. Dark Forces may be the limit of DOSBox, but QEMU and WINE could eventually be fast enough to run games that require up to a 200mhz Pentium. But that’s a ways off.

  10. Age of Empires I was a window was it not?

  11. “Dark Forces may be the limit of DOSBox, but QEMU and WINE could eventually be fast enough to run games that require up to a 200mhz Pentium. But that’s a ways off.”
    Bullshit, QEMU would have to emulate a complete operatings system.
    And WINE will NEVER(!!!!) run on the Pandora, since it isn’t X86-Architecture.

  12. What are the prospects for Dune 2 and X-Com?

  13. Oh my god, do you think Dungeon Keeper might be runnable? This would be so awesome…

  14. Blub, this has already been discussed and Exophase seems to think that it’s possible.


  15. Blub, you’ve completely missed the point. WINE is x86-only only because it doesn’t do processor emulation – it’s job is to implement the OS system calls portably. If Qemu is used to do the x86 emulation, and hands off the system calls to an *ARM-native* WINE then it doesn’t have to emulate the OS at all.

    Note this is only an *idea*, nobody knows if it’s feasible yet.

  16. FPS back then just isn’t like it is now..

  17. Madelman said he got Windows 95 running on the GP2X with Bochs and FreeDOS.

    Still, that doesn’t mean it’s worth doing on the Pandora for gaming. You will get a slightly faster slideshow.

  18. Nice, I would love to play the 7th guest on pandora πŸ˜€
    It worked on a 486sx with 4MB and dos 5.0, more videos pleeease !

  19. http://www.gp32x.com/board/index.php?/topic/48726-qemuonarm/
    It has been discussed a lot, I’m pretty sure Laurent did get a beagleboard for his idea. But we probably won’t have anything by Pandora launch, and DOSBox is performing surprisingly well.

  20. Hey, someone mentioned my favorite old game. I would really love to see the 7th Guest game emulated! Best game of its time!

  21. @blub and others
    Check this out:
    There’s your proof it can be done.

  22. Nice, realy nice!f
