Re: v17 compatibility & bug list

Thank you for your efforts and dedication, Sarah. I have a lot of fun with the newest version. :) One thing I noticed is that as soon as I start MS-DOS on WIndows 98 SE, the emulator freezes.

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 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?

Thanks for testing! I found another bug:

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.
