The PC-98DO won't run VA software. I don't know what happens when you try to run VA software on it, but I'm sure there's no harm in trying. You can easily test it with an emulator by using a disk image of a VA game will running in a non-VA mode.

Another thing about the PC-98DO and the reason I never got one is that you can't add a Soundboard 2. The specs in 98 mode are very low as well, though it should run plenty of early 98 games.

Thank you Kazekirifx. I will certainly try to emulate this first using hardware specifics and these disk files.

A couple of questions I have:

1. What would be the best emulators to use for both PC88 games and FM-Towns games for Windows?
2. At some point I guess I may seek out another actual PC88 computer rather than staying completely with my two PC98 machines.

Would a PC-88 FE or FE2 play pretty much anything: PC88, PC88SR, and PC88VA software?

Thanks again for your time,

-Thomas

PC88 = M88
FM-Towns = Unz

Just go grab the Neokobe emulator pack and you're set to go: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1161
