I am impressed at Robin Hood progress. I am wondering if Robin hood could be possible can DosBox be improved to be equal in power to modern hardware and play all DOS games just fine like modern PC or that one is exceptional impossible?

Try dosbox under WinUAE under maximum speed and if it is slow then…
 
  Host CPU                                Emulated CPU
  Pentium Pro 200 MHz            286 6 MHz
  Pentium II 350 MHz                386SX 25 MHz
  Pentium III 1.0 GHz                  486 66 MHz
  Pentium 4 3.0 GHz.                Pentium 133 MHz
  Core 2 Duo 3.3 GHz                Pentium II 300 MHz
  Core i5 4xxx 4.0 GHz              Pentium III 500 MHz

And where at max would V4 be in that list?

None of those x86 machines would be considered "Modern"

Isn’t it easier to play them under shapeshifter ?

PC titles have the most game titles on Earth. What possible thing shapeshifter can provide that is better than PC when it comes to game title?

Putting aside that question, between that list was shown to me where does V4 stand if DOSBox was maxed optimized? Can it run at 500 Pentium speed or where it goes in the bar? Hopefully, will get the answer soon.

This is a question only Gunnar can answer.
