Maybe try FastBOX a special build of DOSBox for the Pi http://gaming.capsule-sa.co.za/?gamepre ... nd-risc-oscornpie wrote:Hi, I am trying to play dos games via rpix86 over vnc. My vnc server is on tightvncserver and my client is vnc viewer on ios. When using rpix86 over vnc the window has 2 small screens in the larger window ( the rest of the window is see through-aside from the border of the window ) that have completely messed up colors. For example when I try to run wasteland everything is a shade of green or is black kind of like a gameboy, but the console it's self has very colorful letters. Can anyone tell me how to fix this?
He is not using a MAC that was my pointredhawk wrote:I'm well aware of that but it's also a fact that DOSBox supports more than the x86 platform after all it runs on the Pi's crappy ARM processor.
I would imagine that DOS emulation does exist on the Mac probably not as DOSBox but definitely as some kind of open source / paid program.
The color issues are probably due to the fact the Open Gl apps (Rpix86 does use a gl framebuffer) don't do well with vnc. I'm surprised you didn't get a solid black screen. If you are running rpix within lxde well it doesn't work well on that level it works best from the command line.cornpie wrote:It's not just wasteland it's the entire rpix86 even the terminal is all strange it seems to work via x11vnc but as I have stated the entire raspberry pi runs incredibly slow on it. I also tried it (x11vnc) over an ad-hoc network to see if it was just internet traffic, but it didn't seem to matter.

Have you tried to play the game local on a monitor or TV? To see if it is the VNC software or if the game is just slow.cornpie wrote:Update: I found this app called issh which would let me connect to x11 but I don't know how to,setup x11 on the raspberry pi.
