Retro: a PC/XT emulator

A friend of mine just pointed me to Retro, a PC/XT emulator written in Java.

It’s got a few games ready to roll, which is cool. While not a full featured as dosbox, it does feel significantly smaller, compared to jdosbo’s 2mb image. And since it’s browser based, it’s not like it’s all that difficult to check out.

About neozeed

What is there to tell? I’ve loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX… I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since…!

  1. As for Java PC emulators there's JPC (jpc.sourceforge.net) too, but Retro is targeted at the PC/XT… a real niche product.

    I hope some XT emulator will eventually get hard disk and floppy emulation working like the real thing.

  2. Yes JPC is great but i've some crash with it and there is no real support and community 🙁

    Bad point because this product is realy a good piece of software !
