Looking for interest from programmers relating to DOS Abandonware

Posted 27 June 2014 - 03:58 AM

Would anyone be interested in doing some programming of old DOS abandonware and bringing some old gems to a new generation?
I know there are some emulators out there but they can be complex and confusing to alot of people (if indeed they work at all).
Im not a code writer or programmer but have wondered if it would be posible to re-write some of the old classics for the Android platform.
If not, could some send me step by step instructions on setting up a quality emulator like DOSBox on my LG Optimus L5.
Hope to hear some news soon so I can revive the days of Doom,Quake and Railrod Tycoon, along with afew Dungeons and Dragons based games and old 4-bit strategy gold.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I would tread carefully. I am certain those IPs are still watched by their respective owners.

Yeah but around 60% of abandonware is either from developers who are no longer around like SSG or have had their copyright listings expire and not be renewed.
Im sure some would need to be looked into before being undertaken,but most would not.
