    [Guide+Video] How to Play PC Games on Android with DosBox Turbo
    Note: If your device is unable to run ExaGear try Dosbox Turbo, it will run similar games.

    What is ExaGear?
    ExaGear is a complex emulation engine app that allows you to play many classic PC games on your Android device. It features one the most powerful emulated systems on Android and is relatively easy to setup. Official games have controller sets specially adapted for gaming on your mobile device. In addition many unofficially supported games are playable with the help of customs controllers and apps. The following guide will explain how to setup and play Games with ExaGear.

    Emulated PC Gaming System
    CPU: 1Ghz Pentium 3 (Core # Varies)
    GPU: 130MB Wine DirectDraw
    HDD: Emulated to the size of your devices internal storage.
    RAM: Emulated to the size of your devices RAM

    Note 2

    Games are Not included! (Some Assembly Required)

    How to Play Classic PC Games on Android with Exagear RPG/Strategies
    1)Install the
    ExaGear RPG or ExaGear Strategies app on your Android device. Open the app from the device for the first time to unpack data and create the default Exagear folders in the internal storage. A basic set of instructions will be shown prompting you to transfer game data to the device. No Games are included with the app. ExaGear is offered as a free trial for 3days after a game is first started. Once the trial expires you can purchase a controller set or use short 10 minute gameplay sessions.


    2)A)Select an Officially supported game from the "Officially supported Games and controller types:" list below and view the recommended controls for that game.

    Or

    2)B)Select an Unofficially supported game from the
    Launched game list here and select a game that might be playable but could require additional modifications and controller setup covered in the, "How to setup Unofficially supported Games and Controls:" guide below.

    Freshly install the selected game on your PC with the latest patches, I recommend
    GOG DRM free games but older CD/DVD versions work fine but may need NOCD games fixes. After fully installing and patching your games ,locate the install folder(s).

    Officially supported Games and controller types:

    ExaGear RPG
    Current controls are customized and adapted for:
    • Arcanum (Argentum controls are recommended)

    • Fallout 1, 2, (Ferrum controls are recommended)

    • Jagged Alliance 2 (Alluminium controls are recommendedl)

    • Might and Magic VI, VII, VIII (Magnesium controls are recommended)


    ExaGear Strategies
    Current controls are customized and adapted for:
    • Disciples 2 (Helium controls are recommended)
    • Heroes of Might and Magic 3 (Helium controls are recommended)
    • Panzer General 2 (Helium controls are recommended)


    • Civilization 3 (Cuprum controls are recommended)


    3) Plug your android device into the PC with the USB cable and locate the "ExaGear" folder you created when running the app for the first time. The ExaGear RPG and ExaGear Strategies apps share the same "ExaGear" folder located in the root directory of your internal storage(Default location). If you wish to use an external SDcard for storage, create an "ExaGear" folder on the SDcard. Place your games folders into the "ExaGear" app folder in either location and your games be will automatically detected by the app. Please stand by while the game data transfers to your android device, this may take sometime....Wait for it. Once complete you may disconnect the USB cable. Alternately you could download the game data directly to the device and place it into an ExaGear folder with a
    file explorer program.


    Possible DVD\CD\GOG Default game data locations:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\ (Game or Company Name)
    C:\Program Files (x86)\GOG Games\ (Game or Company Name)
    C:\Program Files\ (Game or Company Name)
    C:\GOG Games\ (Game Name)
    C:\Sierra\ (Game Name)


    4)Locate and start the Exagear RPG/Strategies app from your android device. Click "Show unsupported executables.." to show .exe files for games not officially supported. You will need to Select the .exe and controller type for the game you wish to launch, select trial or buy the controller set to launch it. You can edit the exe's default run config by selecting the three dots. Here you can change the default Resolution, Color Depth and Controller type. Once you've selected your defaults the game will load, please stand by..




    How to setup Unofficially supported Games and Controls:
    Review the Exagear RPG/Strategies list of Launched games here and choose a game you wish to play. The column titles are in Russian and contain useful information for setting up your games. See the picture below for reference and translation.
    Spreadsheet translation columns:
    -C= Version, D= The Game, E= Suggested exe rename, F= Resolution, G= Color Depth, H= Language Encoding, I= Comments/Notes

    -Refer to column E, you may need to rename the unsupported game exe(s) to one that is supported.
    -Locate the game data folder, make a copy of the exe file and rename it.
    -Changing unsupported exe names can enable the game to be launched with ExaGear.
    -Refer to column I, you will need to
    Download a dsound.dll here and place it into your game folder. Sound.dll Archive here.
    -Refer to column F & G, you can change default Resolution and Color Depth from the run config menu. From app main click the 3dots by the exe name and set default values for games.

    How to Add custom controls
    -Many games are playable but not yet officially supported by ExaGear.
    -Setting up custom onscreen controls or using Bluetooth/OTG devices can help make games playable on your device.
    -I recommend adding custom onscreen controls with the paid
    GameKeyboard + app Here:
    -Follow the apps setup instructions
    -Customize the onscreen controls
    -Reduce the transparency to better see the game with the onscreen overlay.
    -Enable Non-Blocking mode so that the onscreen controls won't block ExaGears touchscreen input.
    -GameKeyboard + Screenshot with Arcanum Setup.



    How to Patch and Play Games with ExaGear RPG/Strategies:

    How to use Fallout Mods with ExaGear RPG
    -I recommend using the GOG versions of fallout 1 and 2 but the CD and DVD versions should work fine. I don't believe the steam versions work.
    -Locate your Fallout 1 or 2 game data folder in order to begin patching it. Get your copy of Fallout 1 or 2 setup with the latest patches and win9x compatibility by following the below instructions.
    Note:The below setup instructions for Fallout 2 and the Restoration Project will get the game working on Android but may cause it not to run properly on your PC. To reverse this just go back to step 3 in the following setup instructions and overwrite the "Windows 95-98-ME" files with the newer "Windows XP-VISTA-7" files from Killaps Fallout 2 manual patch folder.
    Note: Patching your game or installing the restoration project will require you to start a new game of Fallout.


    Fallout 1/Fixt Mod
    Download Fallout Fixt patch Alpha 6.7.2 FIXES ONLY from the main page here.
    Note: Launch Fallout Fixt from the FALLOUTW.exe file.
    Note: The Alpha 6.7.2 FULL CUSTOM install version of the patch caused some issues stick with the fixes only patch for ExaGear RPG.
    -Goal of Fallout Fixt: "To enhance, fix and improve the Fallout 1 experience. This includes fixing bugs, restoring features, modifying balance, adding features, and many fixes to text/dialog. In addition to that, all other available mods and patches are rolled into Fixt, meaning that Fallout Fixt is the only thing needed for "the best" Fallout 1 experience. As of the most recent version, this mod fixes roughly 150 bugs still present in the unofficial patches, and adds roughly 170 features. In addition, there are hundreds if not thousands of text&dialog fixes."

    (Optional)Download and extract my custom Fallout cfg files here then copying and paste it into your Fallout directory. These config files correct the game path for the sound data files. If you have issues with the game launching and crashing try this.

    Fallout 2
    -If you wish to play Fallout 2 I recommend installing Killap’s unofficial fallout 2 patch.
    1)
    Download and Extract the Unofficial patch, open the folder.
    2) Open the extracted patch folder, copy the "data" folder and paste it into your Fallout 2 install directory. (yes to overwrite the files)
    3) Open the "Windows 95-98-ME" folder and copy and paste these files into your Fallout 2 install directory. (yes to overwrite the files)
    4) Open the “Batch_work’ folder and copy and paste these files into your Fallout 2 install directory. Run the "master_dat_fix_up.exe" file (A window will popup, wait for it..)
    5) Next this is EXTREMELY important, in your Fallout 2 install directory delete a file called "patch000.dat"
    6)
    Download and extract my custom Fallout cfg files here then copying and paste it into your Fallout directory. These config files correct the game path for the sound data files.

    Fallout 2 Restoration Project Install Guide:
    -If you wish to play
    Killaps Fallout 2 Restoration Project with Exagear RPG then do the following.
    1) Download and Extract the manual Restoration patch(
    latest version Here), open the folder.
    2) Open the "main" folder and copy and paste these files into your Fallout 2 install directory. (yes to overwrite the files)
    3) Open the "Windows 95-98-ME" folder and copy and paste these files into your Fallout 2 install directory. (yes to overwrite the files)
    4) Open the “Batch_work’ folder and copy and paste these files into your Fallout 2 install directory. Run the "f2.bat" file (A window will popup, wait for it..)
    5) Next this is EXTREMELY important, in your Fallout 2 install directory delete a file called "patch000.dat"
    6) Download and extract Mash’s older resolution patch
    Fallout2 Hi-Res Patch v3.06 here: Paste the contents of the folder into your fallout 2 folder and replace the files.
    7)
    Download and extract my custom Fallout cfg files here then copying and paste it into your Fallout directory. These config files correct the game path for the sound data files.


    Fallout Tactics
    -Show the hidden BOS game exe, it launches normally.
    -Use the ‘Ferrum’ controls.
    -Set the game to run at 800x600 16bbps before running the exe. from the main menu.


    Enjoy wandering the Restored wasteland with Exagear RPG.

    Arcanum
    Set the game to run at 800x600 16bbps before running the exe. from the main menu.

    -
    Unofficial Arcanum Patch v091225 worked with android
    -Index of
    Arcanum Mods and Patches here

    Diablo 2(LOD)
    -Rename the Diablo 2 exe to fallout2.exe (Optional)
    -You will need to place one of these additional sound files for Exagear RPG/Strategies
    -
    Download and place this sound.dll file into your Diablo 2 game folder.

    Troubleshooting:
    -If you experience issues loading saved games try creating a new game and make sure your data is in the internal storage. Android 4.4..x Kitkat introduced a number of read write restrictions for apps files not located in the downloads folder. The app developer is working to sort out such issues but fixes could take time. Contact the developer here if you have purchased the app but can't play a game properly on your device @
    support@eltechs.com or from the links on
    Play store page here.



    -Support for image files is still being worked on.

    DosBox Turbo Win9x Installation guide:

    1)a]You will need to have the DosBox Turbo app installed on your Android device. Run the DosBox Turbo app and open the settings menu from either the pull down menu at the Top or left side swiping menu. Go to “DosBox Settings/Advanced DosBox Config” check “3DFX Glide Support” and “Manual Mode”. You must restart the app before these changes will take effect.

    DosBox Turbo Play Store Link:

    b]Attention Dosbox Turbo Users there have been some recent changes to the default directory paths. Due to these changes you will now need to change the directory path back to the old default or place the dosbox config into the new location in step 7. You can change the default location now by selecting “Config location” right under where you selected manual mode. You will see a directory path similar to the one below. Note the beginning of the path can vary depending on the type of device used.

    Default manual mode config file directory path:
    /
    <path to sdcard>/android/data/com.fishstix.dosbox/files/dosbox.conf

    On my Note 2:
    /storage/emulated/0/android/data/com.fishstix.dosbox/files/dosbox.conf

    Remove the part from between the dosbox.conf and the root directory of your internal memory(Aka the primary external SDcard):
    Before:
    /<path to sdcard>/android/data/com.fishstix.dosbox/files/dosbox.conf

    After:
    /<path to sdcard>/dosbox.conf

    On my Note 2:

    Before:
    /storage/emulated/0/android/data/com.fishstix.dosbox/files/dosbox.conf

    After:
    /storage/emulated/0/dosbox.conf

    DosBox Turbo Win9x Gaming Package Downloads:

    2)a] Version 1.0 is the most stable but lacks Win9x CD/ISO support. Use this version to Play games that don’t require the use of CD’s i.e. mounted ISO images.

    Or

    2)b] Version 2.0 is less stable due to the Win9x CD/ISO support. Use this version to Play games that require the use of CD’s i.e. mounted ISO images.
    Notes:
    -The CD Rom support makes emulation less stable and can cause error messages when starting win9x with DosBox Turbo.
    - If you experience errors simply exit and restart the app.
    -To use ISO files they must be located within a folder before transferring them to the HDD.img.
    -If the ISO is not located in a folder it will attempt to fill the HDD image and won't work correctly.
    -There are alternatives to installing game data from the ISO.
    -You can use the WinImage program to extract the ISO’s contents to a folder.
    -This can be added to an HDD image and the setup exe run from inside of an emulated win9x environment.
    -Many classic games can be run with a Game Fixes, that will allow you to play without the CD.
    GameBurnWorld No-CD Game Fixes

    Or

    2)c] Version 3.0 runs slightly faster since its based on win95 but only has DX8.0 support and therefore doesn't run as many games as V1.0. Use this version to play games on a slower device that don't require DX9C support.


    3) Install the free 30 day trial of WinImage and run the application. Be sure to use it before 30 days passes. This program will allow you to open and save your game data to your empty hdd .img files.
    WinImage 9.00 Download:

    4) Open your downloaded package and look for the hdd folder. Inside you will find the empty hdd images files to store your games and ISO’s. Extract the default hdd-2gb image file and open the folder.

    (Optional) If you wish to change the size of the image file you are using, then you must also change the name and drive geometry in the dosbox.conf file.

    Default hdd line in the dosbox.conf file:
    imgmount d: /sdcard/hdd-2gb.img -t hdd -fs fat -size 512,63,64,1023

    Change the hdd name and drive geometry in the dosbox.conf file:
    imgmount d: /sdcard/hdd-1gb.img -t hdd -fs fat -size 512,63,64,520

    Driver Geometry:
    2GB image: 512,63,64,1023
    1GB image: 512,63,64,520
    512MB image: 512,63,32,520
    256MB image: 512,63,16,520

    (Optional) If you wish to store the hdd onto an SDcard instead of the devices internal memory, then open the dosbox.conf file and change the following.

    Default hdd line in the dosbox.conf file:
    imgmount d: /sdcard/hdd-2gb.img -t hdd -fs fat -size 512,63,64,1023

    Change the SDcard path to the HDD image:
    imgmount d: /mnt/sdcard1/hdd-2gb.img -t hdd -fs fat -size 512,63,64,1023

    or

    imgmount d: /mnt/extsdcard/hdd-2gb.img -t hdd -fs fat -size 512,63,64,1023

    or

    imgmount d: /storage/extSdCard/hdd-2gb.img -t hdd -fs fat -size 512,63,64,1023

    5) Now that WinImage is installed you can open the empty hdd.img’s by double clicking them, dragging them into the open WinImage program, Or find them from the WinImage menu file/open.

    6) Locate your fully installed games such as DRM free GOG games, ISO images or extracted game data. Drag the folder(s) containing this data into the opened hdd image files. Save your new hdd.img and close the program.

    7) Plug your Android device into your PC with the USB cable and open your devices internal memory. This is the area that opens by default from your computer with the USB cable, all your android data is located here. Transfer the hdd.img, c.img, and dosbox.conf, files into this space; note that none of these files should be located in a folder.

    8) Once the data is on your android device you can disconnect the USB cable. Now you can start the DosBox Turbo app and play your retro PC games on android, have fun.

    9)(Optional)Get the free Hackers Keyboard from the Play Store. It has a better layout for playing games and includes directional keys.



    How to use Version 2.0 with CD/ISO support:

    1)Start the Daemon tools program by click the desktop icon.
    2)Tap the Icon that will appear in the bottom right corner.
    -Select “Device 0: [E:] No media”
    3)Find your ISO image and select it
    -Auto play should now start your CD.
    Note:To use ISO files they must be located within a folder before transferring them to the HDD.img.
    -If the ISO is not located in a folder it will attempt to fill the HDD image and won't work correctly.



    Use this to Play Games like, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II.This video demonstrates how to mount the ISO images using Daemon tools@1:28..

    Fallout 2 Regular
    -If you wish to play Fallout 2 I recommend installing Killap’s unofficial fallout 2 patch.
    1) Download and Extract the Unofficial patch, open the folder.
    2) Open the extracted patch folder, copy the "data" folder and paste it into your Fallout 2 install directory. (yes to overwrite the files)
    3) Open the "Windows 95-98-ME" folder and copy and paste these files into your Fallout 2 install directory. (yes to overwrite the files)
    4) Open the “Batch_work’ folder and copy and paste these files into your Fallout 2 install directory. Run the "master_dat_fix_up.exe" file (A window will popup)
    5) Next this is EXTREMELY important, in your Fallout 2 install directory delete a file called "patch000.dat"
    6) Download and install one of my custom Fallout cfg files by copying and pasting it into your Fallout directory. These config files correct the game path for the sound data files.
    a)Config With Video & Ambient sounds: This can improve screen scroll performance with and increased art_cache_size=256. You can also manually open the fallout2.cfg and change the value. I recommend 256, 512, or 768 (default=8).
    b)Config without Video & Ambient sounds: This increases performance by removing ambient and video sounds. If you experience crashing when the videos play then, you will need this file. Note*NPC conversations will still have spoken dialogue.
    Note: Fallout 2 should be played at the default resolution of 640x480, with a 8bit color depth in basic graphics mode for best results. Using higher resolutions with 16-32bit colors or using DirectX9/Direct draw 7 graphics modes can cause the game to become unplayable.
    7) (Optional) You can also install Mash’s resolution patch: to increase your screen size.
    Note This may impact game performance but allows you to see much more of the map at once.

If you have a fast device place the config file from the "Config With Video & Ambient sounds" into your Fallout 1 install folder. If you have a slower device, or experience performance issues, then place the config file from the "Config without Video & Ambient sounds" into your Fallout 1 install folder. Once you have all the necessary files in the Fallout 1 folder copy and paste the entire folder into the Root directory or your Android device, this is the default location that opens when you plug in the USB cable and explore the device.

    Download Fallout 1 & DosBox Turbo Config files. Notes:For all devices, 256MB mem, cycles set to default Max, Auto.exe:
    Config V4.0 For all devices, 256MB mem, cycles set to default Max, Auto.exe :

    Optional) Install the NPC patch: This allows you to edit your NPC follows weapons and inventory, like in Fallout 2. Download, extract and place the "Data" folder into your fallout 1 directory.
    NPC mod Download:

    5)Look Inside the Fallout 1 configs folder. The second folder called "DosBox Config" has a modified Dosbox Turbo Auto exe Config File. You will need to copy and paste it into the root directory of your Android device along with the Fallout 1 folder. Make sure you have done step 1 or this will not work and you will have to recopy the file after redoing step 1. The Root directory is in the internal memory, the default location that opens when you plug in the USB cable and explore the device. Now you are ready to launch the DosBox Turbo app from you Android device and begin your adventure into the Wasteland.

    6)(Optional)Get the free Hackers Keyboard from the Play Store. It has a better layout for playing games and includes directional keys.


    Using Virtual On Screen Buttons:

    -In the DosBox settings menu check “Overlay Buttons”.
    -Open “Button/Controller Maps” and choose “Add button Mapping”.
    -A new label will appear, click it “Map custom Button (x)”
    -At the top select 1 of 4 custom buttons to map
    -Now select “Dos key mapping” and assign a key to the button.
    -Once done select ok and repeat this for all 4 buttons.
    -A good setup for playing fallout would be:
    -Btn A=space, Btn B=b, Btn C=I, Btn D=s
    -space=end turn, b=change hands, i=inventory, s=skill index,
    -There is a Fast Forward button at the very bottom of the “Dos key mapping” menu, scroll down all the way.
    -Map this key and you can hold it down to increase the cycles.
    -This helps to speed up long load times, but note it will distort any audio that is playing.








    Fallout 1&2 QEMU Android installation guide(Free App):


    QEMU Version:
    Fallout 1&2 are now Fully playable on Android with all the sounds and music from the original game.
    With the use of an Android X86 emulator QEMU, you will learn how to install and play your own copy of Fallout1or2 on Android.

    Games are Not included! (Some Assembly Required)

    Recommended System Requirements:
    CPU Quad- Core, Dual-core 1.2Ghz+, equivalent or better.
    GPU Adreno 220+, Nvidia Tegra2/3/4, equivalent or better.
    2GB, 1GB, 512MB. My Config asks for a min or 256MB & shouldn't be run on a device with less than 512MB.
    8GB disk space

    Minimum System Requirements:
    1Ghz Single-Core CPU with 512MB of Ram
    GPU Adreno 220
    4GB Disk Space

    Note:If you only meet the minimum requirements, then see Step 6 and use the optional Fallout2 Config without Video & Ambient sounds.

    Tested Devices: Note2, HP TouchPad, Galaxy s3, Galaxy s1 i9000

    How to install Fallout on your Android device:

    1)You will need Fallout 1or2 the game fully installed on a PC (Not provided here)

    Download QEMU Emulator for Android:
    2)a]
    Version 1.0 for Playing Fallout 2 Regular QEMU Download:

    Or

    2)b)
    Version 2.0 for Playing the Fallout 2 Restoration Project QEMU Download:

    Note: Version 1.0 is more stable but will not work properly with the Restoration Project.

    3)Getting Fallout 1 & 2 setup to Play on Android:

    Fallout 2
    -If you wish to play Fallout 2 I recommend installing Killap’s unofficial fallout 2 patch.
    1) Download and Extract the Unofficial patch, open the folder.
    2) Open the "main" folder and copy and paste these files into your Fallout 2 install directory. (yes to overwrite the files)
    3) Open the "Windows 95-98-ME" folder and copy and paste these files into your Fallout 2 install directory. (yes to overwrite the files)
    4) Open the “Batch_work’ folder and copy and paste these files into your Fallout 2 install directory. Run the "master_dat_fix_up.exe" file (A window will popup)
    5) Next this is EXTREMELY important, in your Fallout 2 install directory delete a file called "patch000.dat"
    6) Download and install one of my custom Fallout cfg files by copying and pasting it into your Fallout directory. These config files correct the game path for the sound data files.
    a)Config With Video & Ambient sounds: This can improve screen scroll performance with and increased art_cache_size=256. You can also manually open the fallout2.cfg and change the value. I recommend 256, 512, or 768 (default=8).
    b)Config without Video & Ambient sounds: This increases performance by removing ambient and video sounds. If you experience crashing when the videos play then, you will need this file. Note*NPC conversations will still have spoken dialogue.
    Note: Fallout 2 should be played at the default resolution of 640x480, with a 8bit color depth in basic graphics mode for best results. Using higher resolutions with 16-32bit colors or using DirectX9/Direct draw 7 graphics modes can cause the game to become unplayable.
    7) (Optional) You can also install Mash’s resolution patch: to increase your screen size.
    Note This may impact game performance but allows you to see much more of the map at once.
    Download Fallout2 Hi-Res Patch v3.06

    Fallout 2 Restoration Project
    Note(Important) The Fallout 2 Restoration Project requires a faster device to run than a regular install of Fallout2. A fast Dual or Quad core device with 2GB+ is Recommended
    -If you wish to play Killaps Fallout 2 Restoration Project on Android then you must do the following.
    1) Download and Extract the manual Restoration patch, open the folder.
    2) Open the "main" folder and copy and paste these files into your Fallout 2 install directory. (yes to overwrite the files)
    3) Open the "Windows 95-98-ME" folder and copy and paste these files into your Fallout 2 install directory. (yes to overwrite the files)
    4) Open the “Batch_work’ folder and copy and paste these files into your Fallout 2 install directory. Run the "f2.bat" file (A window will popup)
    5) Next this is EXTREMELY important, in your Fallout 2 install directory delete a file called "patch000.dat"
    Fallout 2 Restoration Project Manual Version Download:
    6) Download and install one of my custom Fallout cfg files by copying and pasting it into your Fallout directory. These config files correct the game path for the sound data files.
    a)Config With Video & Ambient sounds: This can improve screen scroll performance with and increased art_cache_size=256. You can also manually open the fallout2.cfg and change the value. I recommend 256, 512, or 768 (default=8).
    b)Config without Video & Ambient sounds: This increases performance by removing ambient and video sounds. If you experience crashing when the videos play then, you will need this file. Note*NPC conversations will still have spoken dialogue.
    7) Download the citylimit49_mapper here and place it into your Fallout 2 follder. Run the exe to extract the files. (yes to overwrite the files)
    -Look in the Fallout 2 folder for the F49+.exe file that was extracted and run it. It will fail to patch the mapper but will patch the Fallout.exe and allow us to play the restoration project. All done have fun.


    Fallout 1
    -If you wish to play Fallout 1 I recommend installing the Dos Patch and launching the game from the Dos exe file.
    1)Download and install Fallout 1 the game on your PC. I got it from a free promotion @ GOG
    2)Download and extract the Fallout 1 Dos files below. You will need to add these Dos files into the fallout 1 folder installed on your PC. Copy and paste them directly into that folder.
    fallout1.1+Dos Patch download:
    3) Download and install one of my custom Fallout 1 cfg files by copying and pasting it into your Fallout 1 directory. These config files correct the game path for the sound data files.
    -There are two different config files. The one without video & ambient noise is for slower devices that just meet the Min system requirements or have performance issues.
    4)Optional) I also installed this NPC patch from the no mutants allowed website. This allows you to edit your follows weapons and inventory, like Fallout 2. Download and extract these files into the Data folder in your fallout 1 directory.
    NPC mod Download:

    4) Download and Extract either the 2GB or 1GB empty HDD.img files to an easy to find location on your PC. Bigger is Better, for improved stability! Default is 2GB.

    5) Install the free 30 day trial of WinImage and run the application. Be sure to use it before 30 days passes.
    WinImage 9.00 Download:

    6) Open the empty HDD.img by dragging it into the open Winimage program. Or navigating to it from file/open

    7) Locate your fully installed Fallout 1 or 2 game folder. Transfer the Fallout game folder into the HDD.img and save it. This should include Killaps Patches and Mash’s resolution patch. I would recommend playing at 640x480 if you have a dual core device. You can attempt 800x600 or 1024x768 if you have a quad core device. Single core devices should use my No Video or Ambient noise Fallout cfg.

    (Optional) You can install one of my custom Fallout cfg files by copying and pasting it into the Fallout directory.
    a)Config With Video & Ambient sounds: This is recommend to improve screen scroll performance and sound compatibility.
    b)Config without Video & Ambient sounds: This has the same sound tweaks but further increases performance by removing ambient and video noises. Note*NPC conversations will still have spoken dialogue.

    7) Save your new HDD.img and close the program.

    8)Copy and paste your new Fallout2 HDD.img into the SDL folder in your downloads.

    9)Transfer the sdl folder to your devices internal memory. This will be the location that opens when you plug in the USB cable.

    10)Transfer the libSDL.apk to your device and install it. Note* you may need to Enable 'Unknown Sources' from Settings/Security/Enable.

    11)Run the libSDL.apk and start windows. Skip scan disk if it comes up.

    12)Play Fallout2 on Android and wander the wasteland.
    (Optional) Interface Apps:
    (Optional) GameKeyboard app that lets you make onscreen buttons and choose the keys:
    (Optional)Get the free Hackers Keyboard from the Play Store. It has a better layout for playing games and includes directional keys.




    Notes(Important)

    SDL cfg File:
    -Located in the sdl folder you will find the sdl.cfg file. This allows you to edit the instructions given to the emulator.
    -You can edit and save changes to this file using notepad.

    -Here is the default line for the sdl.cfg file.
    /sdl -L . -m 256 -boot c -hda c.img -hdb HDD_2Gb.img -usb -usbdevice tablet -soundhw sb16


    -You can increase or decrease the Memory –m 128 or 256 or 512+(recommended)
    -The Default is 256MB for compatibility.
    -Set the emulated Memory size to half of your total system Memory size. So if your device has 1GB of DDR use the 512 setting.

    -You can change the name of the HDD –hdb HDD_2Gb.img Note*It Must match the exact name in your sdl.cfg file.
    -Add additional HDD’s by adding sequentially lettered –hd(x) Like so
    - /sdl -L . -m 256 -boot c –hda c.img –hdb hdd_2Gb.img –hdc hdd_2Gb.img –hde hdd_2Gb.img… ect
    -The default is HDD_2Gb.img but you can edit the file with notepad. Just change the 2 to a 1, to use the HDD_1Gb.img, save and exit.

    Extra HDD for Virtual Memory:
    -I would highly recommended attaching a 1/2GB HDD used only for virtual memory. You can use the Virtual Memory sdl cfg line below.
    -Once you are running the emulator right click on the vault 13 desktop icon and choose properties, select the performance tab. -Next select “virtual memory” at the bottom, click “Let me specify my own virtual memory settings” and select the HDD you attached.
    -It will prompt you to reboot once you exit. Don’t reboot, choose no, and then shutdown and re-launch the emulator.
    -This will help to keep System Resources between 98-99% free. This helps to optimize the performance and improve stability.
    -You can check the performance by right clicking on the desktop vault computer and selecting properties. Navigate to the performance tab at the top and look for “System Resources:98%free”.

    Virtual Memory sdl cfg:
    /sdl -L . -m 512 -boot c -hda c.img -hdb HDD_2Gb.img -hdc HDD_1Gb.img -usb -usbdevice tablet -soundhw sb16

    Overclocking:
    -You will need to be rooted in order to Overclock your device. Increasing your CPU speed can have a large impact on performance and could make games playable on older devices.
    -Get a free overclocking app from the Play Store such as AnTuTu's CPU Master (free). Open the app and increase the speed in small increments of 100-200Mhz and then run AnTuTu's Benchmark to check stability and performance. Once you've found a stable overclock start up QEMU and have fun.

    Troubleshooting:
    -You must click the volume bottom before you can move the mouse.
    -To help maintain stability try and minimize back ground app activity while running Fallout.
    Note*Fallout1&2 runs reasonably stable. Reasonably stable = testers report gaming session of 1-3hrs.

    Tweaking the CPU Settings:
    Increasing the minimum CPU frequency may help to improve stability. You can use the free CPU Master App. Also set the CPU governor to Performance or on demand. Don’t forget to set it back to normal after your finished exploring the wasteland.

    CPU Master Play Store (free app):

    This is really awesome, great work! I wonder how this will run on my Nexus 7...

    Best of luck tweaking things and perhaps one day the RP will work on it. My unofficial patch should, since sfall isn't strictly required for it, like with the RP.

    Anyway, good stuff.

    Thank you very much, high praise indeed. I am a huge fan of your work :clap:

    This should run equal or better than on my HP Touchpad. Your nexus 7 has better hardware and software. You may need to raise the min CPU to ensure stability, only if it’s a problem.

    I actually have got it working with your incredible RP but not this version. I am unsure if the problem I am having is with win95 or the lack of direct X 9c. I was hoping to release that version instead, it loads faster too. I thought it would be best to release the most stable version now and work on the better one.

    With my win98 version (DX9c) I am able to run the RP. The problem with this version is that it is less stable but it loads and runs a little faster. I will send you a copy so you can try it with the RP but note you will need to remove Sfall.

    I have an HP TouchPad, which uses beta CM9 android software. At the best of times my device is only mostly stable, many audio issues. I may have solved the problem already but it hasn’t been tested. Please let me know how well things work for you on your Nexus 7.

    Thanks again for making the ultimate fallout fan patches. I have no idea how many times I have replayed fallout since you started work on your project. I am honored to be able to return the favor.

    While this is really a neat thing, in reality unfortunately it is pretty cumbersome to play without a mouse. If I could find a way to plug a mouse on my Galaxy S2 on the other hand...

    Anyway, great effort guys!

    Thanks for your feedback. Think about the next generation of devices running this. The screens keep getting bigger and brighter:D

    Bluetooth devices work fine, you need to pair them in android before using them. I use a keyboard, it works fine.

    You can also use Mashes resolution patch to increase the viewable area of the screen. This helps to navigate the map but the text is harder to see. 800x600 works well but impacts the performance.

    I've got some screen shots in this thread

    This is great!! But does it work on a Android Phone too?
    I tried it with Diablo 1 on my xperia active but it didnt work. I think its a problem with the SDL Config File.
    How I have to modify the SDL Config??
    /sdl -L . -m 512 -boot c -hda w95r.vhd -usb -usbdevice tablet -cdrom d1.iso

    Yep it works just fine on phones. I am going to add a link to my new Beta version which you can run Diablo 1 with sound, I already tested it. I fully installed the game by copying diabdat.mpq from the cd into the game folder and using a game fix from, Game burn world. Put it onto a HDD img and you should be playing in no time.

    Have fun:)

    Been watching your videos since you originally got Fallout 1 working on Android (DosBox Turbo).

    Just wondering if you've played around with the latest releases of DosBox Turbo (ie. 1.5.0)? I've been playing Fallout 1 on my Nexus 7 with DB Turbo 1.5.0 and its been butter smooth and I can play for hours without crashing unlike in QEMU.

    Seems that the performance of DosBox Turbo has been going up in each subsequent release, so I was curious if you've had a chance to test the latest release, as I think your original video was based upon 1.2.0 release.

    I actually saw this project and messaged them but never got a response so I just did all the work myself lol. It will run on your device, it was one of the tested devices. It will take a long time to load but game play should be reasonable.


    Thank You for watching and following my work Larry. You are correct in thinking that this method may be the future of PC gaming on Android. I actually gave the Dosbox turbo author some advice about fallout 1 and they did increase the memory size but I haven't actually tested it for sometime. Were you able to run the game without using my custom files? If so the author made the necessary changes.

    Like my fallout launcher for QEMU I need to create the same sort of thing but for Dosbox Turbo. I already started this project but put it on a shelf while finishing the QEMU version. The advantage to this method would be hardware video acceleration. I got the sound working but syncing the video and sound is tricky. When you up the cpu cycles the sound gets sketchy. If the author has made progress with the Performance & sound, then it will make my work easier.

    I see someone got half life working on DosBox turbo so it looks like lots of things are possible. He doesn't have sound but there is always some problem to overcome. I've got the sound working already, so I should message this guy and ask him a few questions.

    http://youtu.be/QEcVmPRiZEc

    Be sure that if/when I get this working I will make the information and custom files available to everyone. It will take the next couple months to workout all the bugs but I have made extensive notes in the creation of the img files and I hope all my tweaking will work in dosbox turbo.

    Updates!

    I got back to testing with DosBox Turbo last night. My fallout img file works very well in DosBox Turbo. I've got the S3 video drivers installed and the sounds seems to be very clear better than Qemu. The Author has made some great improvements with DosBox Turbo. The video of the guy playing half life seems to be done with the unsupported Voodoo video mode. Once this is released we should be able to run pretty much everything in dosbox turbo.

    Well now I have to test games, so its back to tweak town for me. Wish me luck:D

    This is great news! I wish I knew as much as you do about tweaking and getting things to work, but alas, at my age, my memory is already starting to fail me. =)

    I also saw that video of half-life running in DosBox Turbo, which is pretty amazing. There is another video of half-life running on a Samsung Galaxy S2 phone with DosBox Turbo, which is even more amazing than the one you posted! I wish I knew how it was done. I noticed in the DosBox Turbo FAQ site, the author indicates that running Windows is not a supported configuration, then he says that if you are going to try, he suggests using Win98lite. So I might give it a shot.

    AWESOME WORK! (yeah, i registered just to say that)

    anyway, there seems to have another windows-emulation solution around called "Winulator". maybe it could give us a good result...it's always good to have different options to check anyway

    also, a android port (not emulation, a port) of the first fallout games would be perfect! if baldur's hate made its way to ipad, we could hope something like that could happen.

    Ah yes I've made some improvements to Half Life emulation and got the sound working. However my HP TouchPad is a little too slow to pull it off well. I recently got a Note 2 and began my tweaking again. HL is pretty much playable on my Note 2 but I haven't put together a video yet. Anyone who wants to play HL 1 on Android will find everything they need in the description of my HL 1 video below. I will have updated links for the Fallout launcher soon, i'm still uploading files. I need to try killaps new Restoration patch Beta with my Win98 V2, if anyone has tested this already let me know if it works, thanks!

    Hi, Thanks for the comment! This is a very interesting looking app, that I have not tried. I will give it a go and see what I can manage to run.

    I think its safe to say that we won't see an actual port of Fallout for Android. Best we can hope for is mods and apps to run it. If the "Winulator" is fast and stable enough, that should be good for most older games.

    Looks like it is still under development and doesn't support many games yet. We'll just have to wait and see what happens with it.

    At Least all us hardcore Fallout fans can use this Mod for now 8-)

    Fallout 2 is pretty much perfectly playable on a Galaxy Note 2(quad-core, 2GB), so the next generation of devices will just make these methods better :clap:

    Fallout Tactics on Android

    Today I managed to get Fallout Tactics to Launch on Android but it wanted the cd, set backs...... :roll:
