Re: Are ISO+OGG (or similar) CD-ROM images supported?

Possible? Yes. Desirable? I think not. I'd rather not pull in OGG/MP3/whatever decompression libraries, as well as the relevant cuesheet handling code, when you can already load the images via Daemon Tools or similar and use them through that.

Re: OS2-4 Installation problem

OS/2 Warp 4 has the Trio64 drivers built-in, you shouldn't need to download any drivers for it.

Re: OS2-4 Installation problem

S3 Trio64 is probably the best for OS/2 at the moment. PCem supports two of these - 'Number Nine 9FX' and 'Phoenix S3 Trio64'.

Re: MacOS X

It's largely the same as for Linux. You need to install sdl2, wxmac and openal-soft through brew (https://brew.sh/), then run ./configure and make.

Re: Ryzen

Spectre/Meltdown mainly affect code that makes huge numbers of kernel calls, mainly IO heavy stuff. PCem doesn't really fall into this category, hence it shouldn't be too badly affected.

Re: Ryzen

I bought a shiny new Ryzen laptop the other day. Preliminary results - in software Quake under PCem v14, a Ryzen 5 2500U at 3.3 GHz gives about 2/3rds the performance of a Core i7-7700k at 4.4 GHz. Make of that what you will!

Re: [Bug] Window size changes when leaving fullscreen

This looks to be a result of trying to convert between Windows and SDL views of window coordinates. I've just had a go at trying to fix this and largely failed. I think rewriting wx-sdl2-display-win.c to only use the Win32 size & position APIs is probably the long term solution.

Seems to work okay here. Are your ULTRASND and ULTRADIR environment variables set up correctly? I was able to reproduce your error if either variable was wrong or missing.

Which drivers were you originally trying to get working? The drivers I've been using (CMS Game Blaster 720KB Driver Disk off vogonsdrivers) detect the card okay and seem to work fine.

Can't reproduce. What exact configuration are you using? What drivers? What do the 'VGA issues' look like?

Re: 8088/8086 machine bug with PC-DOS 2.x/3.0

Not a PCem bug. Pictionary tries to initialise the mouse via INT 33h. Your mouse driver would normally hook this, but you don't have one loaded. DOS 3+ will install a dummy handler, as will AT BIOSes. If you use DOS 1.x/2.x with an XT machine and no mouse driver then nothing will initialise it and P...

Re: Loading .iso causes PCem menus to not respond

A bit late responding to this, but this issue is the fault of bad UI design on my part. Once you've configured a CD-ROM drive in the configuration dialogue, it won't show up in the emulated machine until you've selected something other than 'disabled' in the CD-ROM menu in the main PCem window.

Re: Compilation fails.

What version of SDL do you have installed? Those errors imply that it's something prior to 2.0.4. PCem needs something more recent than that.
