Re: What computer processor to emulate pentium mmx and up with PCem well?

I have an Intel 4790k at stock clock and runs a Pentium MMX 200 quite well Can your i7-4790k do anything other than the pentium mmx 200? and also do you have the hyperthreading off? apparently PCem works better if hyperthreading is off.

Here it seems to be the chipset of the XPS 466V.
It has to be one of the chipsets already emulated, as there is no new chipset in this patch

Thank you for the quick reply Sarah!
I'm currently looking and trying to understand "pc87306.c" - I noticed that all entries with pclog are commented with a double slash. Did you forget to remove those comments? Because they are not compiled and that logging is very useful

Try using different renders: eg. OpenGL, Direct3D, etc

Official pcem is not compiled with MSYS2. it is compiled with the other mingw and not using the exact same versions of the dependencies.
You need to use the dlls that are in msys2.
