From the "news" item:

a great way to test out the NEW DOSBox 0.71!!! You will need it, because the game won't run on any older DOSBox versions[/b]
ORLY?

I've had it running for some time now on an older CVS version. You had to futz with the SVGA settings, but it could be done.

Either way, though, glad to see it is now supported in the official build with 0.71. :)

OK, OK... after all the new DOSBox versions are basically upgrades of the original program so everything a new DOSBox can do could be done with the older version - with changes implemented. I mean, when enough changes are made the next official release of it is made.

I guess that's just from the gamer's (read - computer abuser's) point of view, not from a coder's (read - computer user's) point of a view.

There are many more people using DOSBox then changing it's sorce code to improve it.

Now now Nodal, just because he officially dissagrees with the US policy and acctually activly does something about it, he's still one of the people who had a great impact on the way chess is played today.

There's even the Fischer's system, which is widely used in most of chess competitions: for every move you get a certain amount of time back on the clock (see programme 22 on your chess clock).
