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.
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.
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 !
