Re: PCem v15 Sound Issue

I mean... yeah, of course it could be a problem with the real hardware as well. ^^; I just wanted to make SarahWalker aware of this. That's it.

Re: PCem v15 Sound Issue

@SarahWalker: While we are on this subject of sound problems... there is this one windows game called Obsidian (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obsidian_(1997_video_game) that has some problems with Windows Sound System (Sound Blaster 128 works, though).

Re: PCEm V14 great implementations and future capability suggestions

Antoher suggestion: When I want to change hardware, I have to go to Misc, Machine, Configure and again Machine. Is it possible to add another Option (picture) or at least a key combination so this process is a little bit faster?

Re: PCem is still open (background process)

Thanks for your answer JosepMa.
The same happens even if I use notepad.exe in place of pcem.
It's still open as background process? Are you sure? I never have had this problem and I start a lot of programs via batchfile. That's the reason why I reported this problem in the frist place.

PCem is still open (background process)

When I open pcem with a batchfile (like "start /b PCem.exe --config ".\DOS.cfg") and close DOS 6.22 with X (not shutdown), pcem is still open in the taskmanager (background process). Is it possible, to fix this problem?

Yeah... your CPU is weak. ^^ Sorry, but you need to have one of the best CPUs to emulate Pentium 233 MMX at full speed. :(

I'm pretty sure that's because your CPU is weak and can't emulate Pentium 266 MMX at full speed.

DOSBox vs. PCem – What plays DOS games better/more accurate?

I know it's hard to compare those two emulators, because DOSBox doesn't require actual BIOSes and doesn't use cycle accurate CPU timings. But how good is the dos emulation on pcem right now? What's better/worse compared to DOSBox? What would you recommend?
