What is zerox86?
zerox86 is a PC emulator for the Game Consoles Worldwide (GCW) Zero handheld game console. Its purpose is to allow you to run old DOS games on your GCW0. It is based on the DSx86 PC emulator for Nintendo DS game console. I began porting DSx86 to GCW0 in May 2013. See my blog for information about the current status of zerox86.
What hardware it emulates?
The current status of the emulation is as follows:
- CPU: 80486 processor, including the protected mode features (for running DOS4GW games) but without virtual memory support. The emulation runs at a speed of around 40MHz 80486 (which equals a 80MHz 80386) machine.
- Memory: 640KB of low memory, 4MB of EMS memory and 16MB of XMS memory.
- Super-VGA graphics, with a maximum resolution of 640x480 with 256 colors.
- SoundBlaster 2.0 (including AdLib-compatible FM sounds) sound card.
- US keyboard.
- Two-button mouse.
