Re: Problems with some Origin games

I don't like to speak for her, but... we never get an update this soon! You will need to make your own build if you want to test the new fi...

Re: I have a question about resources from other PC emulators.

I'm not understanding.
What do you mean by resources? You want to inject source code from other PC emulators to PCem?

Re: Problems with some Origin games

I'm trying to install Wings of Glory and the installer alone is giving me trouble.
VCPI compilant? What is this? Maybe part of problem.
I'm running it from Windows 98 SE DOS, I will try to run from pure DOS later

Re: Help - PCem no romset found problem

Sure, only the EXE won't work because v13 needs some widget libraries.
Copy all v13.1 files onto a v12 working PCem. That's what I did and works

Maybe ver 13.1 has case sensitivity. Are you running the Linux version?

Re: CDROM on older machines

First, I'm not sure what you call "older machines" all PCem machines are more than 20 years old...
By default, PCem assigns D: to the CDROM... but that can be easily configured in the menu
For what I know, IDE controllers do not have an independent bios

PCem networking made easy

Most of us are having problem connecting the newly network card (I couldn't either).
Couldn't be easier for playing multiplayer games to emulate the "serial link" cable? Most DOS and early Windows had that kind of connection and in the host side connect both computers over WiFi

Like I said, Verilog or programming FPGA programing is very different than C, there you program 0 and 1, transistor, nothing like C. I don't think Sarah nor anyone would benefit from that FPGA code

I don't have any plans to emulate nVidia stuff. Banshee/Voodoo 3 are fairly likely, along with the new recompiler. Though I'm toying with doing a smaller v14 release early in the year, with the new recompiler coming in v15 towards the end of the year. Haven't made any decision on that yet though. D...

Re: Pre-v13WIP compat list

The only way to make 1:1 behavior is to open the chip and with a powerful microscope and/or camera capture every transistor, like the guys at http://www.visual6502.org did. I believe then you can build an emulator with Verilog or VHDL
