This release should hopefully increase compatibility even more and add some more speed especially with dynamic core.
Some of the changes are.


* Improved x86 dynamic core, more stable.
* The usual cpu/fpu emulation fixes and speedups.
* Soundblaster 16 and opl3 emulation added.
* Internal mixer updated with interpolation and volume support.
* Intelligent MPU-401 emulation added.
* ISO/Disk image mounting support.
* Custom chipset emulation for cga,tandy hercules modes.
* Improved pc-speaker emulation.
* Improved GUS emulation.
* Added a keymapper.
* VGA/VESA Bios fixes.
* IPX networking support.
* A zillion internal dos fixes/updates.
* New ddraw rendering output and new render functions.
* Raw adlib/midi capturing.

yes.
Arena isn't working (or its taking a very very very long time to load)... i'm stuck staring at a black screen.

I believe the music is much better in sim city 2000 now, but I'm not sure.

That's all fine and good, but now Duke Nukem 3D is even much slower with it as it was with prior versions...
What remains as only Windows 98 to play it in now...

Umm, actually no (forgot about that possibility :whistle: ). I guess I'll try that out, if Duke3D won't crash in Windows XP because of being a Dos game.

Nope, with VDMS it's fast enough now, but the sound is crappy and choppy so slows the game still down. Windows 98 will still be better.
