Re: Letterboxed mode games

MotoRacer (16:9 mode) and MDK use black borders with 4:3 resolutions.

Games with support for 640x350 EGA mode with 16 colors (almost 16:9 ratio) like the original SimCity.

Re: Minor bugs

I believe that's because DVD-ROM is not yet emulated in PCem Well, it does work with host drive (real or emulated). It doesn't work with load ISO option. If relative paths ever worked, it was only by accident. This has never been supported. You're right. It only worked by manually editing the cfg f...

Minor bugs

I was wondering if it's possible to fix for the next release these minor bugs: -When active "Remember size & position", the main window always appears some pixels below from the last position. This seems to happen only in the version available for download, not if compiled from the source code. This...

Re: PCem requests for a Win9x Project

For my project to maintain its current build standards, it has to be portable. Which means not relying on third party software that requires a manual install (eg: daemon tools). DOSBox handles this by taking all mountable images up front, and then switching through them via a hotkey (ctrl-f4). It w...

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...

This project is a hobby, not a work.

It's an open source project as well. If someone wants to add something it is possible to download the source and modify it.

Re: Host machine survey

It is possible to include the fastest virtual CPU that is possible to emulate with the physical one? Or include a FAQ or pin a post with this information.

Mine is i5-3210M (2 cores / 4 threads at 2.5 GHz) and I am able to emulate up to Pentium@75 at almost full speed.

[Request] Visual Player 2.0 SB16 support

Visual Player 2.0 was a MOD (Amiga module) player for DOS. Sound Blaster 16 support is broken (no sound is output). In DOSBox this issue was corrected in commit r3850 but no new stable version has been released since. Changes in DOSBox code can be seen here . Is possible to port this code into PCem?

Re: Remember size & position option

Every time I open the VM, the main window appears below the last position with the increase of some pixels. The machine window always opens in the same previous position. If I don't move the window and keep opening and closing the program, the window goes off screen. I am using Windows 7 x64 with a ...

Time synchronizing

I have noticed that time synchronize depends on the emulation speed. With a Pentium 75 (which I emulate at 100%) I get a 2-3 seconds delay from host, but with no increase. With a Pentium 200 (62% emulation speed) I get a 10 seconds delay increase every minute. Is this the expected behavior? I have t...

Re: v14 feature freeze end of Saturday 17th of March

I don't think it does. You're probably creating an image over some fragments. For me, it didn't take 2 minutes to make a 40gb today. what takes longer though is moving all those smaller images into the bigger ones since there's no real easy img-based tools to do so and WinImage drag-and-drop isn't ...

Re: v14 feature freeze end of Saturday 17th of March

Does the last commit speed up the creation of hard disk?

In PCem 10, in a 5400 rpm hdd, create a 2 GB disc takes 30 seconds, while in PCem v13 (since v11 i think) takes 2 minutes.

Creating new hard disc

PCem v10 seems to create a new hard disc much faster than newer versions.

In a 5400 rpm hdd, create a 2 GB disc takes 30 seconds, while in PCem v13 (since v11 i think) takes 2 minutes.

Is there any reason for this change?

Re: Pre-v13WIP compat list

On Pcem 12, Destruction Derby (Diamond 3D / S3 Virge, Windows 95) using 512x384 resolution results in a vertically stretched image.
Terminal Velocity with S3 patch: missing hud and textures.
I don't know if this still happens in 13 WIP.

Re: Dynamic recompiler

Hi and thanks for this great emulator. I've been using it since v9.
I noticed in Award SiS 496/497 that any CPU at 16 or 33 Mhz fails to boot with recompiler enabled.
