VEMM.SYS is targeting the VL82C202 chipset, not the SCAMP.

The desktop and mobile Pentium MMX chips are exactly the same performance-wise.

Re: Bitbucket deleting all Mercurial repositories on June 1, 2020?

It's not exactly encouraging is it?

Another option would be to host the repo here. I need to look into how to do that.

Re: Bitbucket deleting all Mercurial repositories on June 1, 2020?

Oh wonderful. I'd missed that announcement. Initial reaction is that switching to Git is probably the least painful move, but I've not really had to give this much thought before now!

Re: Development screenshots

Worked on the Mystique a bit more, so here are some more screenshots. I have to admit I'm getting slightly fond of this weird stipply card, which is probably a sign of major illness or something.

Re: Adverts for emulated hardware

Going back to Commodore, here's a July 1993 advert for the 386SX machine I just added. This is pretty close to the end for them, I think only the CD32 launched between the time of this advert and Commodore going bust the following April. The 386SX machine is pretty obsolete by this point (hence the ...

Re: Adverts for emulated hardware

I have a few gaming and comp magazines from the mid 90s stashed away somewhere at my parents, will have to fish them out at some point. I do have a few scans from Commodore though: Commodore Ad 1989 More Commodore, 1989 Even more Commodore, 1989 They had IBM PC clones out, not sure why they went un...

Re: Adverts for emulated hardware

-Is there really a difference between enhanced Grand Theft Auto and not? I never tried it. It looks like the software version in 15/16/24 bit colour, but faster and with texture filtering. 3DFX GTA apparently only exists because DMA Design were sent a card and hadn't done anything else with it when...

Re: Adverts for emulated hardware

I never had a GUS. Maybe it's because of this ad. I would read about all sorts of GUS-related issues in lots of readmes and etc... so no regrets. Same here, I had an SB16 and SB 2.0 back in the 90s. While I do now have a GUS, and in the right game it's excellent, I doubt I would have enjoyed the se...

Re: Make Multi-Threading Possible on Guest CPUs

No matter how many threads you create on the same subject, this remains and will always remain impossible. It's not me being mean, that's simply not how computers and emulation work.

Re: Adverts for emulated hardware

I couldn't find any adverts for the Gravis UltraSound or AdLib Gold. I did find this awful one for the Ultrasound ACE though. I wonder why no one bought the ACE.

Re: Adverts for emulated hardware

It definitely does emulate the CH Flightstick Pro though.

I wanted to post a Sidewinder Gamepad advert, but I couldn't find one; just the joysticks and the weird Freestyle Pro.

Re: Adverts for emulated hardware

It's difficult to say whether PCem emulates a given controller or not, most are pretty generic. I think I can claim Gravis Gamepad emulation though.

Re: Adverts for emulated hardware

A couple of months later and both V2 and Banshee are £99. Also note the Sound Blaster PCI128 at the bottom right, with one of those nasty cheap 4.1 speaker setups.

Re: Adverts for emulated hardware

For more context here's a PC World advert from November 1998. V2 prices are clearly dropping, but there are still some V1 cards available. The G200 seems overpriced to me.

Re: Adverts for emulated hardware

Finally for Voodoo 2 here's a Techworks advert from Christmas 1998. From memory Techworks were the company that kicked off the late 1998 V2 price war - 12MB V2 cards dropped from £249 to £99 in the space of a couple of months. This basically killed the £99 Banshee as a viable product.

By contrast Creative have the hang of things in this November 1998 ad.
