[08:08:54] <sbx> Also, DOSbox is written in C++, which is not noted for its performance.
[08:08:59] <sbx> Is that true?
[08:09:17] <sbx> the part about performance
[08:31:15] <Colourless> the days of C++ having poor performance can be considered long gone
[08:39:39] <sbx> But DOSbox is a modern application. At first I thought i said "Ultima8 is written in C++".
[08:40:12] <Colourless> ultima8 was written in c++
[08:40:58] <Colourless> the most critical part of dosbox is the CPU emulation core
[08:41:07] <Colourless> which of course is written in ASM
[09:00:00] <wjp> a major bottleneck in dosbox is memory access
[09:00:51] <wjp> it takes quite a few dereferences to map a virtual address to a physical address
[09:01:11] <Colourless> assuming protected mode
[09:01:15] <wjp> yes
[09:01:51] <Colourless> protected mode even in virtual 86 mode under winnt is maybe only marginally faster

[11:22:42] <sbx> The Hong Kong mission in Deus Ex makes me think of Shadowrun. And it turns out, some of the developers have played Shadowrun.
