    Working on the key layout customization, hope there is enough time left for the next update.

    To be on the safe side you should stop doing your online banking in DOS.

    Does that mean, that you think it will be pulled? :eek:

    I love this. It is so authentically sluggish on my 3G. If only there was a monochromatic mode. *sigh

    Has anyone tried The Elder Scrolls: Arena? I'm playing Oblivion atm and came across this in a previous post.

    Hmm, I'd been hoping someone might bring out X-Wing/Tie Fighter, or Wing Commander: Privateer, at some point. Could be worth a try on this.

    I imagine complicated keyboard controls might get a bit fiddley though :p

    I hear you. I just wanted to clarify that the buttons could at least be remapped.

    Hopefully the virtual joystick support will give us a proper thumbstuck when it's done.

    Since neither Dig Dug nor Ms. Pac Man are abandonware (both still owned by Namco) then probably, unless they remove the games. Furthremore if file sharing allows code to be side-loaded into the app Apple will probably pull it for violating the "no arbitrary third party code execution" rule (that isn't passed through Apple and offered as properly licensed DLC (where applicable) first)

    So yeah, get it while it's hot.

    Well, work which should be done right now and at the very first is to remove the bundled games.

    I had actually already tried Tie Fighter earlier. It starts up and seems to run at a fairly decent framerate but then it asks for a joystick configuration which the app doesn't support yet.

    Thanks:)

    Code is not ready yet, and iDOS is the latest version. I'll let you know should there is any update.

    Sure you can - but it won't have any severe consequences, particularly not if your desktop is a Mac.

    I can confirm that Unlimited Aventures works (including UASHELL to run hacked modules), as well as Eye of the Beholder 2. I tried Pool of Radiance and it works, though I need to find my manual to remember the keystrokes to do things (they were different than the later Gold Box games).

    Sound is a bit sluggish, even with frameskip turned up all the way (standard DosBox function keys work), but the games mentioned run at close enough to correct speed.
