Think that i will try dos box. I created this thread because when i googled i found many emulators and instead of the usual advertising gimic "ours is the best" i wanted personal opinions because the number of people using a particular emulator to me says more than any amount of advertising.
I tried duke nukem in dosbox but it ran too slow but in qemu with dos 6.2.2 it ran lighting fast. It might be because of powernowd. Quake ran at decent speeds in qemu. dosbox has a ways to go. It works for simple games. but graphically intensive it chugs.
What quake version do want?
For quake1 or quakeworld there are modern Linux/*BSD clients, try fuhquake, zquake, ezquake, fquake (maybe the best for newcomers) and JoeQuake for single player or speedrunning.
For quake2 there's quake2forge, quetoo, etc.

Does anyone know if that would work?
