Re: PCem 12 and slowmotion issue

Sorry, i missed that, though it still sounds quite complex to me. Is that a problem of PCem? Or its smth complex, bad programming in thief + limits of pcem? Any chance it will be fixed in future? I read that Byzantine also have problems.

Re: PCem 12 and slowmotion issue

Take a look, Thief Dark Project:

https://youtu.be/Xw163cJ_OCk

Game is almost 100% but when these hitch ups happen it drops. Then i open menu which should run perfect, but its only 33% there and horrible sound. What's the problem?

Re: PCem 12 and slowmotion issue

I'm also getting some hitch ups when sound plays. Is sound emulation also intensive? What's the lightest type of soundcard? Sound Blaster 16?

Re: PCem 12 and slowmotion issue

Okay, i see.

To be clear, my 6700hq can do 3100 for 4 cores, 3200 for 3, 3300 for 2 and 3500 for 1

Re: PCem 12 and slowmotion issue

Yes, now I understood. Tried different CPU and my quake 3 started working like charm. Though ss2 is still working slowly :)

But, PCEM doesn't utilise GPU at all?

Re: [Req] Creative EAX emulation?

Half-Life has its own reverb/echo DSP system fyi, so EAX isn't necessarily required. PCem would need the EMU8000 feature finished first, since Live is also EMU based maybe it could be jerry-rigged with the OpenAL EFX stuff in the meanwhile (it might require separate buffers for opl/midi/pcm/pcspkr ...

Any chance we will see this one day? Imagine Windows 98 with Half Life (original build, not the steam one) and Eax sound, with reverb effects and so on... Same for Thief. WOW!

Yep, its working. But looks like it doesn't work with 3dfx. Instead it works in software mode and performance is unplayable.

Re: Thank you! (Dithering)

Also where you using Nglide inside the Windows 9x OS or outside the PCem emulator? You are missing the point. Nglide is for windows 7-8-10, wrapper which allows to launch glide games, but with modern rendering (no dithering). Also it won't help for really old glide games, dos era or too old windows...

Any explanation for % in titel bar? What does it mean?
https://pp.vk.me/c631929/v631929184/454 ... KNrBPI.jpg

I'm asking since it's always showing 98-101%, but if this means that my current CPU is fully emulated, its wrong since performance is far from good sometimes.

[Req] Maintaining aspect ratio in maximized window

So right now maximized window looks like this, https://pp.vk.me/c631929/v631929184/45356/H7pihP__Jio.jpg Its stretched. And the only way to have proper image is to manually resize window, or use fullscreen. Any chance to have aspect ratio lock option in windowed mode? Like this: https://pp.vk.me/c63...

Big big thank you on all these details. Really interesting. Wonder how close your current filter to un-dithering thing in real voodoo. You are saying PCem obvious "line effect" is a temporary thing? And about this default gamma being kicked up to 1.3/1.7 on 3dfx, causing its rivals to be &...

P.s. so on other cards of this time, in 16bit applications, dithering also existed, but was displayed as is, without filtering?)

Re: Thank you! (Dithering)

A real voodoo wouldn't expose the dithering as pristine and intact in the screenshot though, as it had a undithering filter on the DAC which gave 3dfx their characteristically blurry/waxy look. You'd only usually see those unfiltered, dithered pixels in windowed mode on a Banshee/V3/V4/V5, or scree...

Re: PCem Host System Requirements - Pentium MMX

I've got two PCS

One is laptop with core i7 3000mhz, 4cores / 8threads. Around 70 TFLOPS. System Shock 2 is showing 7 fps.
Second one is desktop with core i7 4500mhz, 4cores / 8threads. Around 95 TFLOPS. But System Shock 2 is showing 7 fps.

How can it be?

I just have no words to say :) That’s just miracle. Thank you guys, to all of you.

And with this “interlayer” between game requests and new hardware we are getting some changes in re...
