Re: v13.1 released!

With this release I get an SDL2.dll not found error at start up, doesn't happen with 13.0.

edit: I know I can fix it by downloading the DLL (which works), just not sure if this extra requirement in 13.1 is intentional.

Re: Patches for wxWidgets/SDL2

The new SDL UI is part of the official release now? That's nice for us Linux people :)

Re: Recommended settings for bog-standard i286

The XT (original PC) line had 8 bit expansion slots, the AT (286 lines) had 16bit, which are backwardly compatible with 8bit. 386SX systems also had 16bit because everybody still used 16bit expansion cards when the CPU was released. I wondered about the video speed settings myself - I just select wh...

Re: [HOWTO] Linux: Mount & create pcem images

As an addition to this, it's really easy to create 1.4/2.8mb floppy images and mount them. First create the image: dd if=/dev/zero of=floppy.img bs=1440k count=1 (change to 2880k for 2.8mb) Then create a DOS filesystem on the image: mkdosfs floppy.img And then mount wherever you'd like: sudo mount -...

I was trying these, not just saying they don't work :p

This driver seems fine, thanks:

Re: Best option for Windows 3.11 and high res/colours

That driver doesn't run at all (I guess it's for NT). But the 2nd one I downloaded last night was definitely for Trio64 and not Trio64V and it was limited in the same way.

Re: Best option for Windows 3.11 and high res/colours

That's the same as the one I had. I found another one dated earlier, and it was the same limitation. I'm not sure there are any 3.1 drivers that support the higher colours/res.

Do you have a link for the right drivers? I can't find anything else.

Re: Best option for Windows 3.11 and high res/colours

I downloaded the only Trio64 drivers I could find, version 1.70.04. The highest it will do is 64k colours at 1024x768 - anything higher than that res is limited to 256 colours.

I thought I'd tried that. Is it in Win 3.11? I've seen that a lot of the cards do higher res/colours in Win95 etc than Win 3.11.

Best option for Windows 3.11 and high res/colours

I've not had much luck configuring Windows 3.11 with anything above 800x600 and 256 colours. I've tried various drivers, but with a fair few graphics cards emulated that should support higher resolutions and colours and lots of different drivers for each card, I'm not sure what's best. Can anyone su...

Re: [Linux] GUI discussion

I used strace to find out where it was looking for roms, as it ignores the directory it's installed in. It searches under ~/.pcem/roms Another issue is that it's case sensitive and so it will miss any filenames with capital letters in them. I got around it by sticking the roms on a FAT partition and...

Re: [Linux] GUI discussion

When did you experience crashes? It'd be great if you can reproduce them so I can fix them :) I regularly merge in the latest from mainline so it is up to date. With the new interface changes I don't seem to be getting any crashes. The only weird thing I noticed is when you click to close the windo...

Re: [Linux] GUI discussion

After the fix this compiles and runs on Arch Linux. A couple of crashes sometimes when changing the config, but the actual emulation seems really stable.

Quick question - is it based on the current development version or patched on the last release?

Re: [Linux] GUI discussion

I've added the missing MIDI-changes to the Allegro-version. However if you want to use the wxWidgets-UI you need to run configure with --enable-wx Ah I was probably compiling it with the wrong config option then. It fails to link now though, same with and without the wx option :) pcem-hdd.o:(.data....

Re: Issues with EGA emulation

Yeah I had more problems on both PCs so realised it wasn't just the OS/host system.

Hopefully the issues can be sorted out, but I guess it's low priority since VGA replaced it.

Re: Issues with EGA emulation

On the desktop (where it works) I have nvidia graphics. On the laptop where it freezes it is Intel integrated. I'll try switching them.

The thing is others work without issue - CGA, VGA are fine.

Issues with EGA emulation

When I run pcem 12 on my desktop (Haswell i7) I can use EGA. It takes a long time to start up but then presents colour tests and boots. But on my laptop (Kaby Lake i7) it freezes, and just shows an empty grey window and uses 100% CPU until killed. The config is identical in both cases and the rom fi...
