DOS emulator brings Raspberry Pi back to the ’90s for Doom LAN parties #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

DOS emulator brings Raspberry Pi back to the ’90s for Doom LAN parties, from engadget:

Who can forget the first time they obliterated their buddy with a BFG9000 during a spirited Doom game? Raspberry Pi coder Pate wants to resurrect those good times with an rpix86 DOS emulator that opens up the world of retro PC games like the aforementioned FPS pioneer along with Duke Nukem 3D, Jill of the Jungle and others. It works by creating a virtual machine your Dad would be proud of, based on a 40Mhz 80486 processor, 640KB base RAM, 16MB extended memory, 640 x 480 256-color graphics and SoundBlaster 2.0 audio. Of course, the Pi is worlds beyond that with a 700Mhz ARM CPU, 512MB or RAM and HDMI out — so, most enthusiasts with one of the wee $35 boards will likely be all over hacking it to play those classics.
