Re: Networking discussion

SLiRP just lets you use TCP/IP from emulated system (and even that has some limitations), so it's not really that useful with PCem (unless you want to test old web browsers). The emulated system behaves as if it was behind a NAT router, so incoming connections aren't possible, and you can't use any ...

Re: PCem build guide

For recent Windows versions there's also npcap, which seems a bit better maintained than winpcap/win10pcap (just make sure to install it in winpcap-compatibility mode).

Re: [Bug] Windows 10 display scaling mouse issue

I find PCem much more usable on high-DPI screens than VMWare Workstation (since it can't do any kind of scaling unless you go full-screen, which means everything is tiny).

Re: Expanded Memory Boards for 8088/8086 machines?

Are you sure? IMHO, SCP Gazelle could access 896Kb of RAM, and Altos 986 could access almost 1024K. Of course, neither of these machines was PC-compatible :) PC-compatibles are limited to 640k (which IIRC wasn't enough to link Microsoft's linker, so they had a special machine with 1MB addressable R...

Re: [HOWTO] Linux: Mount & create pcem images

If you want an easy way to mount partitions from a disk image, use losetup like this: losetup -P /dev/loopX /path/to/disk.img You'll get partitions as /dev/loop X p1, /dev/loop X p2 etc., which you can then mount directly (mount /dev/loopXp1 /mnt/whatever).

Note that this isn't strictly true - there were beta drivers released for Windows 2000 that let you use a Voodoo card to connect a secondary display and use it for Windows desktop.

There actually was a beta Voodoo2 driver for Windows 2000 which let you use a Voodoo2 to run a secondary monitor, but I have no idea if that supported windowed 3D acceleration (the driver only supported DX - it had no glide/OpenGL support).

Re: Settings and other UI improvement proposal

Regarding floppies and CD-ROMs: how about having them in the settings dialog and in menus for quick access? VMWare does something like that, except that the quick access there is through the statusbar icons (which I wouldn't mind either - VMWare uses them both to show the status and activity).

Re: Networking discussion

There is some network traffic, but it averages around 60kB/s down and 10kB/s up, so nothing special.

I am using win10pcap instead of winpcap, but I hope this doesn't make a difference.

Re: PCem v11 mouse issues

The host mouse doesn't matter - it's not passed directly to the guest. I think PCem emulates a two-button mouse, but if the OS for some reason thinks it's a 3-button one, you'll get jumping.

Re: PCem v11 mouse issues

That sounds like driver problem in the OS - cursor jumping around like that usually happens if the driver thinks it's a 2-button mouse, while it's getting data for 3 buttons (or vice-versa).

Ctrl+Alt would be nice, since that's what VMWare uses. Note that capture/release only happens if you press and release Ctrl+Alt - if you use any other key together with them, release isn't done (also, this means that in VMWare at least the VM receives the Ctrl and Alt down scancodes before the keybo...

If you find a 32-bit Windows 10 install, it might work without any emulation - the file is most likely a DOS program, and Windows 10 still supports that in 32-bit version.
