Re: v15 & new recompiler update

I feel that after a certain point you no longer need to be emulating machines, because basic virtualization will cover those bases for everything but the "it's slow" part. There shouldn't be much in the Pentium 2 age that needs an "accurate" emulator to be able to do everything it needs to do. I di...

Re: Old Award 286 Hi/Lo 32 kbyte Bios

I guess that joining the bios file is a wrong idea. The bios will look for another file that doesn't exit
There is already a couple of motherboards/computers that work with two file bios

-Loading a DVD image from host drive works fine, but if using the ISO load option, in the guest it appears as a CD audio or it's not displayed.
I believe that's because DVD-ROM is not yet emulated in PCem

Re: PCem 12 and slowmotion issue

That's the most likely reason. Other possibilities are that it's idling while waiting for vsync, and it's mostly running the PCem-unfriendly Windows 9x idling code.

Re: PCem requests for a Win9x Project

Good idea, but I don't think I'm understanding how it may work. Let's say we have a C dynamic partition with only Windows 9x and then another partition where a specific game is installed? If that's the case, then we'd need at least two images for each game. One for the CD-ROM image, and another for ...
