Re: [Patch] 3dfx rendering accuracy

It only has to do with 3DFX. It's not going to change anything that isn't related to rendering 3D through a 3DFX card. Dithering and scanlines are also not the same thing.

Well, you could always try contacting someone who makes these sort of patches, I guess. It's just that it's a rule that you can't really go around posting material that isn't legally distributable.

I'm running the game in a 486/66 under DOS 6.22 and the mouse is perfect.
If the problem is because is running under Windows, I bet it is real behavior
I tried it in Dosbox and it works fine there.
I don't understand why this happens in Windows 98.
"dosbox" or "dos"? Important distinction.

Re: DOS games testing list

Have you already tried manually selecting the options according to PCem's configuration, if the game even has manual configuration? Not that I'd expect this to be the problem, but sometimes autodetection is wrong for one reason or another.

And either way, programming isn't a limitlessly transferable skillset. Programming by itself offers nothing, you need to know what you're intending to do in detail, you need to know the relevant language(s), etc.

Re: Jungle Strike from "Desert Strike and Jungle Strike" doesn't work

I think the divide overflow thing is usually caused by running a game on a cpu that's too fast. I think there's a patch out there, but a simpler solution is just to try a different cpu and see if that fixes it. I don't know why it would be doing it on the pentium overdrive, since that's nowhere near...

I wouldn't want to blame the video card, but the easiest thing you can do is try another mouse driver or mess with the settings of the one you're using.

Re: Mouse problems in v15

Merely selecting an option in PCem isn't enough. More than that, you need a DOS mouse driver active to use a mouse in plain DOS like that.

Re: Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure and Earthworm Jim for windows 95 play way too fast!

Fullscreen fast probably runs at 75 because most CRT monitors were capable of 75hz to begin with.

Re: What computer processor to emulate pentium mmx and up with PCem well?

Ironically, it seems that PCem's approach to emulation is more efficient than DOSbox in several different cases, and when you start approaching very fast system speeds that are too high to use PCem for, you may as well sacrifice the "accuracy" for a virtual machine, such as with VirtualBox. There's ...

I'm not sure what's preventing you from making these "Data only" images into hard drive images and then mounting them that way with the secondary IDE. I don't know what exactly you're doing with them but it can't possibly require permanent use of a removable disc greater than CD size, hot swappable ...

Not a lot for the most part; the main CPU load is the CPU emulation, and that's strictly single threaded. The only reason to go past 4 cores is if you want to emulate a Voodoo 2 SLI setup, as the Voodoo emulation can use up to 3 threads per card. This disappointing but understandable since it's har...
