I am on GCC 4.7.2, so is there any way to tell which libraries I have which might be causing this? I'm on Windows 10, and have a habit of doing things like installing the June 2010 DirectX 9 SDK and user redist so I can play old games. :)

Re: questions about pcem

PCem is a simulator as well as an emulator; where an emulator just tries to emulate outward behaviour, a simulator tries to model exactly what happens in whatever you're simulating.

If you have access to the original hardware, try reproducing the issue with the exact same drivers as on PCem.

You could also try later and earlier S3 Virge drivers in PCem. :)

I think that the problems we currently encounter is caused by random use of lower/upper case letters for the rom names.

Re: Linux

Probably not much use for it at this point - At that era of Linux development, its main use, IIRC, was for servers. And PCem 12 doesn't have internet. :)

A source build might; someone might chime in on that.

My guess would be that later graphics cards emulate DirectDraw using Direct3D.

You might want to fix your quotes. :) I think +300MHz and good overclocking improvements are entirely reasonable for the Ryzen refresh, agreed. Motherboard updates (software and hardware) should also help current Ryzen hit its peak; RAM support is spotty. Windows 10 also needs updated multi-threadin...
