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. Hi, just wanna to try my luck, was there any movement on this issue? Thx! Latest news was that the next revision of PCem (v15) is due ...

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 ...

Not sure if this a correct topic. The 1982 game Paratrooper not working correctly on any XT-class machine. It has no sound on an IBM PCjr and keyboard control problems on other XTs. The PC speaker in PCem v14 sounds also garbled a little in this game. We have to be very careful on the PCjr - many g...

I opned the model.c file and saw that both the WinBIOS and AMI486 clone use the same chipset, of course, both BIOS files are different. Now, the question is: If I dump a BIOS from a 430VX chipset motherboard, should it work as a replacement alternative for the "Award 430VX PCI" motheboard? I dumped ...
