I just got an experia arc. I am illiterate when it comes to games. Any chance you could show how to get the game onto your phone please?

I don't have the means to create a video of that, but I'm happy to assist over this thread.

you will need some sort of file manager for android. I use ES File Explorer.

first off, use google and find a free software app that can create .iso images from a disc. Nero is one that I know works.



then copy that .iso file to your sd card.

On mine, I made a folder called dos to put batch files in (will explain that as we get to it) and an iso folder to put the disc images in.

/sdcard/dos/iso/tng.iso

I keep the name as short as possible and all lower case...keep it simple.

download and install the aDosbox 0.2.5 version found here:
http://androiddosbox.appspot.com/

edit the dosbox-0.74.conf located in:
/sdcard/app-data/org.hystudio.android.dosbox/.dosbox

change these lines:
memsize=8 (change to 16)
cycles=auto (change to 2600)

at the very bottom end of the file add:

mount c: /sdcard/dos
c:


now save it as: dosbox.conf

when you launch dosbox there are options to configure it to use a custom .conf file,
you will want to point it at the dosbox.conf you just altered.


now run dosbox.

bring up the keyboard type in:
imgmount d c:\iso\tng.iso -t iso (then hit enter)

then type:
d:\ (hit enter)
install (hit enter)

this will install final unity. I installed it to the dos folder which is c:\ in dosbox.
so it ended up in c:\sttng

all you really need to do after this point is launch the game.

I made a batch file to automatically mount the iso image and launch tng. This is also in the Dos folder on the sdcard.

I made it on my pc then just copied it over to make it easier.
It's called tng.bat

the text in it is:

imgmount d c:\iso\tng.iso -t iso
c:\
cd sttng
sttng

so all you would need to do now is launch dosbox and type in:
tng

then the image will mount and launch the game.

this works for all the other games as well.

Found out if you disable music and bump cycles up from 2600 to 3600 judgement rites runs much smoother and audio popping goes away

Re: STTNG: A Final Unity.....on my phone!

This is fantastic, got AFU working on my Samsung GS2. No sound though, what am I doing wrong?

Re: STTNG: A Final Unity.....on my phone!

did you auto detect or manually config your audio in AFU setup?

did the sound test pass in the initial install?

the dosbox setting for sound is:

Port: 220
IRQ: 7


Nice phone btw. I wanted one, but the Triumph was my only high end option on Virgin Mobile.

Re: STTNG: A Final Unity.....on my phone!

Auto detect. I did think that might be an issue, I didn't really pay attention to the install process, it was taking a while. I'll reinstall and look more closely.

Yeah it's a great phone, I had to do some negotiation to get it from Vodafone. I threatened to leave, so they gave it to me for free since I'd been with them over a decade. Finally the system works for me!

Re: STTNG: A Final Unity.....on my phone!

Sorry to bump this, but I got AFU working on my Nexus 7, and it's running quite nicely. The midi music is a bit stuttery, but the vocals are fine. It's running smoothly, and it's easy to use since it's a point-and-click game.

Thanks to Borjis again, still very useful advice two years on!

I'm really impressed that it's possible to run a 1995 DOS game on my swanky tablet computer. Makes you feel a bit more optimistic about digital preservation etc.

^^^^^

Thanks for the update! Will have a go on my HTC Desire HD to see how it works if I ever get the time. Ideal for taking away on holiday to play with on the deck chair.

I so wish the thread resurrection was to announce that there was a way for this to work on an iPhone.

Re: STTNG: A Final Unity.....on my phone!

Ah yeah, doubt that'll happen any time soon. You could obviously get it working on a Windows 8 tablet without too much difficulty, and it's simple on Android.

Re: STTNG: A Final Unity.....on my phone!

Haha I love that this thread was resurrected.

I recently bought a Nook HD+, if any of you are on the fence because of price,
you should pick one up at barnes & noble. The 16gb version is only $ 140 and
some office max stores are only charging $ 99 (in store only)

I picked up the 32gb model for $ 180, still a great price.

It is 9 inches and retina display!

I have 25th anniversary, Judgement Rites and A Final Unity all working flawlessly.

and btw, these games ALL run WAY better with DosBox Turbo on the android market.
you might have to tweak individual .conf files for each game to get them running just right.

Re: STTNG: A Final Unity.....on my phone!

Yeah I'm using DosBox Turbo too. It's really easy to set up, and you get to manage the individual conf files in a nice interface. I need to sort out Judgement Rites and 25th Anniversary next. How are the controls for the battle sequences? They were hard enough with a real mouse and keyboard!

Re: STTNG: A Final Unity.....on my phone!

not easy...i think a single tap is photons and fast double tap is phasers.

I end up spending a lot more time on those battles than I did playing
it on a pc.

oh and you can get much better sound if you disable the turbo audio.
it's always on by default and the voices sound horrible at that audio rate.
