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

Not a photoshop.

This is A Final Unity running on my motorola triumph via Dosbox for Android. aDOSBox ver 0.2.5

Loading takes a minute and it runs like its on a 386 but it works, including cut scenes.


I made an .iso image of the cd, copied to the micro sd card and voila! I got star wars rebel assault to work too in the same way.

Here's 25th Anniversary & Judgement Rites.

Both play smoother than Final Unity.

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

Lol...
I already theorized about this several months ago and knew about Dosbox for Android.
I just never got around to do it on my phone.

Congrats.
At least now we can have QUALITY games that suck the battery.

good question! I actually have not tried that yet.

for the interplay titles:
It's turned off in the screen caps but there is a virtual joypad on screen with 4 fire buttons and left right up down. I use that, although to tab key from the screen to the bridge you have to bring up the android keyboard for a second.

Also, have to minimize the game, to open a scanned image of the star maps when warping to a new mission.

The speech audio is kinda popping in JR but of the three games 25th is almost flawless.

I expect these to improve on the next release of aDosbox

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

OP, did you have to tweak any settings in dosbox.conf or elsewhere to get it to play Final Unity smoothly?

I am on a dual core evo3d and everything is barely moving

Thanks!

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

change the memory to 16mb.

cycle way down on the cpu cycles until the audio stutter stops. (around 2600 cycles worked on my phone with a 1ghz snap dragon cpu)

thats about as good as it gets for now. It is slow and cumbersome...barely playable I'd say at this point. star trek 25th almost runs perfectly though.

on another note:
with scummvm these games I tried run flawlessly and I mean absolutely perfect:
Full Throttle
7th Guest
The Dig

I'm hoping the next release of aDosbox will squeeze more cpu power through. There's plenty of cpu cycles in these higher end smartphones to run these games well, as demonstrated through scummvm.
