Re: v15 compatibility & bug list (WIP)

Is it the gold version or Nitro Riders/Pack? The Glide renderer in that only seems to behave well with V1's with older drivers (and has led to a bug report incident before with a V2 which turned out to be real behavior) The CD decal says "Interstate '76 Nitro Pack". And thanks; will try that. I'76 ...

Re: v15 compatibility & bug list (WIP)

You can see how much CPU time the Voodoo threads are taking in the PCem status window. The percentage before the frames/sec line is the FIFO thread (though I think this is a grotesque overestimate, and counts the time this thread waits on the render threads), the two percentages below frames/sec ar...

Re: Pentium MMX 200 emulation problem

Ok, so your graphics card is basically irrelevant here - PCem doesn't use it. OTOH, your CPU is very old. Even at 5-7% uplift IPC for a single core per generation, an equivalent Intel 9X00k CPU beats it by +34-50%. The 9X00k will probably also run at around *4.5-5.0 GHz (so +28-31%), and use modern ...

It is possible to include the fastest virtual CPU that is possible to emulate with the physical one? Or include a FAQ or pin a post with this information.

Mine is i5-3210M (2 cores / 4 threads at 2.5 GHz) and I am able to emulate up to Pentium@75 at almost full speed.
Good idea.

Re: Host machine survey

Ryzen 7 2700X
16GB DDR4
Windows 10

Clocks from 3.9 to 4.0 GHz running all cores.

Edit: It runs up to a Pentium MMX 233 at full speed or very close to it. It could probably also handle Voodoo 2 SLI, but I've been distracted by other hobbies instead of getting that working.

Ah, I thought PCEM must be injecting something since as you say the BIOS on those machines can't see anything.
