Re: CD rom images will not load and freeze the GUI

I'd assume this is the WX mouse locking problem with the window focus, reproducible by doing this: - open a CD-rom or shader manager window - Tab to another window - Close another window - Witness your mouse get stuck in the center of the PCem window i tried that and the mouse won't get stuck..it j...

Is that image from a game?
Can you mount those images with another emulator outside PCem? Like Alcohol or Demon Tools?
its a demo cd found in many magazine of 1996.

image works fine with vmware and yes, even with 86box no problem

With some motherboards in PCem I have to set the CHS translation setting manually, even though in the real hardware "Auto" was enough. Try this.

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.

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

"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 with V2's. Delete you...

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...
