Re: Speed improvement

How the emulator works, I have no idea, but you can take a look at the C code if you know something about programming. As for the speed improvement, the owner of this project said that after this current release (after Apr 20th) she will start working on that subject, but that's gonna take some time...

Re: [BUG] 720kb floppy detection with DOS FORMAT

Does it happen on all computers? I found a similar bug on the SiS 486
It seems the low density floppy emulation is kinda buggy

Re: Are ISO+OGG (or similar) CD-ROM images supported?

I don't think PCem would support OGG, but I never tested it...
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)

Re: [REQUEST] CD-ROM speed

I've committed a rough implementation of this to rev 1110. Seek times are a very rough model, transfer time is impacted by the existing ATAPI & SCSI emulation, but performance should be roughly correct, particularly for the lower speed drives. Thank you, thank you, thank you! However I will only wi...

Re: 3DFX emulation

Looks like Half-Life Doy, why didn't I think about that? But anyyays, question time - what's the latest game you've tested so far with PCem? For me was Hitman: Codename 47 (2000) - It has good framerate, however there are random crashes not related to PCem (it seems it works best with nVidia cards)...

I'm asked to reset PCem when I only want to change the monitor type in Hercules (eg. from green to amber). Is really a reset needed here?

Re: Win3.x splash image appears too fast?

Maybe because the slowness is due to the HDD reading (the slpash image is a big BMP file iirc) and the VGA has nothing to do here

Dear Sarah: I noticed you have been working with the CD-ROM lately, I take the opportunity to make a small request. Maybe you don't find it useful, but I'd appreciate if one's could select the speed of the CD-ROM reader: some selectable speeds like 1x, 2x, 4x, 8x, 16x and MAX, to compare and feel ho...

I don't doubt about what you said, I only mention a possibility, but since you already tested with 4.77 mhz there must be a PCem's bug

Works here.
You should try: running the game in MS-DOS 5 to 6.22 (you are in 7.0). Or mounting and image in PCem and not using a host unit

Re: CPU ID:NEC V20 instead of Intel 8088 on PCEM / 86box

No, NEC V20 is not emulated, PCem is closer to 8088 than NEC V20 according to this post viewtopic.php?p=3504
This must be a minor bug in the way PC Tools detects the CPU.
MAYBE you set the clock above the 4.77 and PC Tools thinks you have a NEC V20?
