I want to write games for old systems and embeded systems (arm board etc.). The main OS want to write for is MS-DOS(more specifically dosbox). As for embeded systems (in terms of hardware) i am looking for the cheapest i can find.
Does anybody know where i can find tutorials for the above? Also, is there a download site for the ol ides (borland turbo c etc.)

Thank you for your time

For DOS programming, there are still a number of tutorials around that cover the old mode13h and the techniques used back then. A Google search for DOS Game Programming shows several hits that look like a good place to start.

As far as compilers go, I've seen Turbo C 2.01 available for download in a few places, but I don't know what the legal status is. Your best bet might be the DigitalMars C/C++ compiler, the latest version of which still supports DOS16 and DOS32. DJGPP also supports DOS32, but I haven't touched it in over a decade so I have no idea if it's even maintained anymore.
