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 [url="https://www.google.com/search?oq=dosbox+programming&sugexp=chrome,mod=18&%7Bgoogle:instantFieldTrialGroupParameter%7Dsourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=dosbox+programming&hl=en#hl=en&sclient=psy-ab&q=dos+game+programming&oq=dos+game+programming&gs_l=serp.3..0j0i30l2j0i5i30.64717.64945.1.65750.5.5.0.0.0.3.172.672.2j3.5.0.les%3Bcqn%2Crate_low%3D0-035%2Crate_high%3D0-035%2Cmin_length%3D2%2Ccconf%3D1-2%2Csecond_pass%3Dfalse%2Cnum_suggestions%3D1%2Cignore_bad_origquery%3Dtrue..0.0...1c.1.dWJI6XFQJLw&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.r_qf.&fp=f180bbae8d698c86&biw=1858&bih=995"]DOS Game Programming[/url] 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 [url="http://www.digitalmars.com/features.html"]DigitalMars C/C++ compiler[/url], the latest version of which still supports DOS16 and DOS32. [url="http://www.delorie.com/djgpp/"]DJGPP[/url] also supports DOS32, but I haven't touched it in over a decade so I have no idea if it's even maintained anymore.
