Re: v15 on macOS - fail to compile

I'm glad it helped you! If that concerns several files it can be easier and faster to edit the Makefile instead, I noted that the provided Makefile.osx64-wx-sdl2 already has the switch -Doff64_t=__off64_t in CFLAGS variable: CFLAGS = -D__unix=1 -DPCEM_RENDER_WITH_TIMER -DPCEM_RENDER_TIMER_LOOP -Dfop...

Re: Raspbian can't compile v15

I didn't have any major trouble to compile PCem, the worst part was to build wxWidgets, it took a lot of time because I had to use a single thread to keep the my Pi cool. That's because I'm using a Pi 3 B+ with the official touchscreen and its corresponding case without active cooling, using all cor...

Compiling PCem for Windows from Windows Subsystem for Linux with Ubuntu

In part for fun and in part because MSYS is very slow I tried to compile PCem under the WSL and it's at least 3 times faster than MSYS. Of course I got an executable for Linux. Now I'm trying to cross compile it for Windows but I get an error about OpenAL: root@cp1:~/pcem# ./configure --host=x86_64-...

Of course, PC / XT and AT use incompatible keyboards, but I think that machines with AT and PS/2 keyboard should behave all the same.

Re: [BUG] International keyboard layouts

On 8088/8086 machines loading keyb with /E parameter to force enhanced keyboard fixes most problems except:
- Alt-GR & key #45 still missing or not working.
- Left arrows become backspace.
- Numeric '/' types '-'
- Maybe something else, I tested character keys only.

Re: [BUG] International keyboard layouts

Windows ME has the same problems under VirtualBox 6.0.8 while Windows 95 OSR 2.5 and Windows 98 SE are fine.
I'm guessing that WME does the same on real computers, after all MS was ditching DOS support with Windows ME

I guess you're using MSYS2 MinGW 32-bit. The console shows MINGW32 after your username, like: user@domain MINGW32 ~/PCemv15/src

You can't compile PCem from MSYS2 MSYS.

try to use make clean before compiling again

[BUG] International keyboard layouts

There's something wrong with international keyboard layouts: incorrect, missing and duplicated keys. Recent 'keyboard_at.c' changes could have caused additional troubles ( https://pcem-emulator.co.uk/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3250#p12329 ) but the strange WME behaviour was present at least since v1...

Edit: I compiled PCem five weeks ago, I will update it now and test again.
Edit 2: Only 'makefile.in' was changed since last update…
Edit 3: KEYB UK is not working 100% properly either.

That's fine, WinHex is really useful to work with emulation related files, BIOS, disk images and so on.
I tried the 2suw001 BIOS on almost all available 286 machines without any success, perhaps it needs some feature present only on the original chipset :(

With "roms folder" do you mean one copy on each machine subfolder like c:\pcem\roms\ibmxt\ide_xt.bin and so on?
Try to copy it directly to roms subfolder like c:\pcem\roms\ide_xt.bin to make it available for all machines because it's compatible with many models.

It's interesting, I never tried non parity modules because my PCS386SX was upgraded when my Olivetti dealer was already making their own generic computers and they fitted 8x1MB Samsung parity SIMMs and really I don't know what it has before. Olivetti OEM modules could be made by Samsung too but I'd ...
