OSNews, Generic OSes No, your eyes aren't deceiving you - we have actually have not one, but two news items on hobby/small operating systems on the same day! You thought the day would never come again, but hey, here we are. You're welcome. Now, what are we talking about? FreeDOS - a test release has been, uh, released for FreeDOS 1.1.

Downloaded ZDoom and got all my Doom's running perfectly at 1920x1200 ;)

As I mentioned, the purpose was to get the Steam Doom pack to work, but their config was with DosBox and Ultimate Doom lagggeed massively and basically just crashed.

Well, I assume they tested it, but dunno, would have to check closer. By default DOSBox usually comes setup only for 16 MB of RAM (max. 64), which is sometimes too low. But I can't imagine DOS4GW swapping like mad or anything, so who knows. cycles=max or core=dynamic or whatever may or may not improve the situation. (Search on DOSBox's forum.)
