Re: CD rom images will not load and freeze the GUI

I've been having a similar issue. It's the whole reason I registered with this forum. Using v14, in either MS-DOS 6.22 or Win98SE in DOS mode, tried with multiple CD drivers, everything is detected correctly, but trying to access the disk causes PCEm to crash. When I boot Win98SE fully it works jus...

Re: Puzzle Bobble and Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure fail to detect CD-ROM

Indeed, I get the same error with Puzzle Bubble. It says it cannot recognize the Audio tracks. I opened the Windows 95's CD player and the Audio Tracks don't play right, I believe there's the problem. The Audio Tracks are properly dumped, as they sound fine in a modern computer. PS: I even lowered t...

Re: CD rom images will not load and freeze the GUI

Is that image from a game?
Can you mount those images with another emulator outside PCem? Like Alcohol or Demon Tools?

Re: 3DFX compatibility list

Bear in mind that Serious Sam: First Encounter requieres minimum a Pentium II and is recommended a Pentium III @ 550 mhz

I didn't say GF2 needs to be added to PCem. I just said that both games work fine with GF2 64mb. If we get past Voodoo2 that will be a success.
Ok, I misunderstood. Voodoo3 is very likely to be added to PCem, however, the performance is near the Voodoo2 SLI we currently have

New computer? HP Brio 8014 - Help needed

I acquired this HP Brio 8014 computer which is 430VX chipset based with a Phoenix BIOS. I think this might be a good add to PCem since there is no computer with the 430VX chipset. Is had a nice Brio splash screen ;) I know Sarah is busy with the recompiler, but is there anyone else who could make a ...

Re: 3DFX compatibility list

Can you add Serious Sam: The First Encounter (2001) and Serious Sam: The Second Encounter (2002) to the list. They work on both Win95 and Win98 with Voodoo2. The only problem is that game is very slowed down because it needs a more powerful graphic card like Nvidia GeForce2. Wow, we are light years...

For games with Audio tracks you'll find BIN or WAV format, but not OGG. It is a very bad idea to preserve games with lossy audio tracks

Re: PCem system requirements

Btw, what are Mobile Pentium processors for? Mobile Pentium processors were designed for use in notebooks. They don't use the Socket 7 format, so in real life you can't put those Mobile processors in the current 430VX mother. I guess Sarah put them in PCem for a little more of speed, but I hope she...

Re: v14 compatibility & bug list (WIP)

Maybe should you add in the "Not bug" category "Pictionary " and "Hitman: Codename 47" (this later game has crashes with Glide, but works fine with Direct3D)

I've committed a rough implementation of this to rev 1110.
