Can I install Windows XP and have internet connection in DOSBox? I am just curious. Because if I could then DOSBox is as close as VirtualBox for MorphOS PPC as I can get heheh! That means I can play MMORPG games on MorphOS under DOSBox Windows XP.
I was able to run XP on BOCHS emulator - but the speed was underwhelming, even on a G5 2,7 GHz. The Virtual PC on OSX PPC is a much better option for this task. As for the net connection - I'm not quite sure of the BOCHS, need to test that... someday :). Works on Virtual PC though.
As for the speed - I've found few of my old videos showing how it performs. Now:
Booting (and basic usage of) Windows XP on Bochs:here
Running Heroes 3 demo on Windows XP/Bochs:here
Running Heroes 3 demo on Windows 95/Bochs:here
Are you sure your MMORPG is less demanding than that?
