Re: v13.1 released!

Hi Sarah, thanks for the release. I must have got lucky and downloaded the fixed SDL version just after you updated it :p

Can confirm that sound is behaving. Changing the buffer length on the fly works with no issues. Output gain also works. Thank you very much for this update!

Re: v13 released!

FYI - Msys2's comes from OpenAL Soft as linked above (and is outdated in a bundle) I should also mention OpenAL Soft doesn't support PCem's recent output volume feature. Crap, was wondering why the output gain didn't have any effect. Switched back to supplied OpenAL, which does work. Now that PCem ...

Re: v13 released!

The 50ms sound buffer option seems to be broken on the Windows release build of V13 (at least for my host pc). The 100ms buffer length works, but is pretty choppy. The culprit appears to be the use of the (comparatively) ancient OpenAL32 dll from Creative. I would suggest switching the release build...

Re: DMA Compile Issue commit 621d85d

You aren't doing anything wrong.

The DMA struct is defined in "ibm.h", and does not include the "stat_rq" member. It's either a typo, or Sarah forgot to update the DMA struct. I'm sure she'll fix it either way.

Re: Descent 3 Demo Graphical Issues

I just downloaded and installed demo 1.11.
Using my previously noted pcem configuration, it worked fine.

Re: Compile error (sound.c)

Sarah just added a new sound device, and the MSYS2 makefiles have not been changed (as Sarah doesn't (yet) have anything to do with those. In the OBJ portion of the makefile, add 'sound_audiopci.o' after 'sound_adlibgold.o'. That should work, judging by what Sarah added to the mingw makefiles. I wil...

Re: PCem MSYS2 build guide (with wxWidgets)

I changed cdrom-ioctl.c __MINGW64__ to __MINGW32__ so this compiled correctly. This modification was JosepMa's advice, thanks to him. https://pcem-emulator.co.uk/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=637&p=6624#p6624 I checked this makefile, maybe this will use system libraries (-ltiff -ljpeg -lpng -l...

Solving DDK issues under MSYS2

Hi all. As some may know, when attempting to compile PCem using MSYS2, cdrom-ioctl.c will not compile due to "ddk/ntddcdrm.h" and "ddk/ntddscsi.h" problems. The issue is that the DDK headers are moved and changed in Mingw-w64 compared to legacy mingw. To solve this, an #ifdef is ...

PCem MSYS2 build guide (with wxWidgets)

[EDITED 2017-10-14] [2017-10-15 Makefiles updated for revision ab5cef9] Hi all. I spent the afternoon banging my head against the desk trying to get PCem to compile with MSYS2. I finally managed it however, so I'm going to share with you the process. This will hopefully build PCem with wxWidgets/SDL...

Re: VHD support

The only difference between the IMG files that PCEM creates (they are raw disk images), and (fixed) VHD files is that VHD files have a 512 byte footer appended to the end of the file. My only worry with using VHD files with PCEM is if PCEM decides to write some data at the very end of the disk image...

Re: VHD support

Hi Sarah, I know this is an old thread, but have you had any further thoughts on adding official VHD support to PCEM? Even though it's not a supported format, fixed VHD disks already "work" with PCem, although there's no guarantees that there are no issues (there are probably slight disk s...
