    I see that you are talking about dosbox.
    You must see the compatibility list: https://www.dosbox.com/comp_list.php?letter=A
    Even in my 10 years old PC most of the supported games run fine. If they slow down I use ctrl-f11 ctrl-12 to up down the speed.
    You can enable ems in the config dosbox file under [dos] using ems=true

    I have downloaded doom2 and it plays perfectly even on my stupid w10 laptop.
    Here is the settings specific for doom2 (note I did not use those just my regular dosbox 74-3 version) :

    Code:
    [sdl]
