Unless you’ve been hiding out in a cave these past few weeks, you’ve almost certainly heard of Netflix’s The Witcher show (or at least that song, Toss a Coin to Your Witcher). One of the most breathtaking sequences of the show is in its first episode – a fight between Geralt of Rivia and the grumpy (and armed) folk of Blaviken. If you were wondering how it was done, Geralt himself is here to fill you in.
Riot’s Legends of Runeterra is now open to a wide audience, and while the response has broadly been a positive one, there’s been one major sticking point among PC players: frame rate.

DOSBox SVN r4311 is released. DOSBox emulates an Intel x86 PC, complete with sound, graphics, mouse, joystick, modem, etc., necessary for running many old MS-DOS games that simply cannot be run on modern PCs and operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Linux and FreeBSD.
