err..exactly where is this option? cannot find it in "configure"

I'm afraid that option is only available in the latest build revisions that you have to manually compile yourself.


which i am unable to do.

not even pcem-x has it?

Re: Interstate 76 nitro pack crashes to desktop if run with glide

Failing driver installation, delete glide2x.dll from your i76 directory. It shouldn't be there normally, ever. (I can only imagine a pirate repack doing this for some "working fixed dosbox daum version" rather ignorantly) that's the problem..is nto a pirated version or anything, is the ve...

"disable filter" and "reinstall opengl" are blind advice as they have nothing to do with the Glide driver not finding the card it's programmed for. Reinstall your Voodoo2 drivers. The error message shows the Glide2x.dll from the V1 drivers is still there and should be replaced w...

Re: Early win 95 game in high res EXTREMELY slow

I can assure you it's this slow on the real thing. This thread doesn't sound like a PCem bug to me; it's more of a misled perception issue. Not all games ran smoothly in their period. A very very nice example of this is Jane's US Navy Fighters. A 1994 3d engine has so slow texture mapping you'd nee...
