4X games for PocketPC?

#1 Post by Grizzly » Sun Apr 30, 2006 11:05 am

Hi!

I love games like FO or MOO and I already tried to play MOO 1 on my PocketPC with DOSBox. But I only get strange graphic problems. Seems to be a VGA problem because on QVGA there is no problem.

Is there another 4X game for PocketPC?

I have just recently found 2 posts about Pocket DOS:

Master of Orion on Windows Mobile!!

So a while back (== a good few years!) I loved playing a certain PC game called Master of Orion (Remember it??). Now I came across the CD's for it the other day, and i was wondering if there was any way that I could get it to play on my phone (Orange SPV M5000 - basically the imate JasJar) - the phone runs Winsows Mobile 5 and I was thinking there has to be some way to get those old DOS games to run on it.

Well, I just learned that you CAN play Master of Orion on your Pocket PC! Let me say that again: you can play Master of Orion on your Pocket PC!!! The miraculous piece of software that makes this possible is called PocketDOS.

I tried to played Master of Orion with pDOSBox 2 Beta. But it is pretty slow. :(
Now I've found Pocket 4000 A.D.http://www.pocket4000ad.com/
I didn't tried it yet but the manual looks promising. 8)
