NTVDMx64 for Win7/8/10 x64 (Announce)

There is also:

http://www.reactos.org/

which seems to be a direct port of NTVDM to 64-bit Win 10 / 8 / 7, but I can't get it to compile to try it out. Is anyone able to compile this successfully on Win 10 x64?

I have successfully used NTVDM in 32-bit Windows 7, and it runs textmode 16-bit DOS applications, but does not support any graphics whatsoever.

What would help SO much is if there is a FULLSCREEN 9x16 text mode capability for native 64-bit windows, which there seems to NOT be.

The only way I've gotten fullscreen (ie, 720x350) DOS 80x25 text to work correctly is using Win 7 32-bit and the changing the graphics driver to generic VGA. Using any Intel drivers, etc will NOT work for fullscreen at all. It seems to be artifically disabled, fullscreen mode is intentionally disable on x64 Windows and all Intel graphics chipsets. A real pity.
