Re: FPU 80-bit accuracy

Only on x86 - non-x86 platforms have to use softfloat. Since PCem also runs on ARM (as of a couple of days ago), portability isn't an academic question anymore and an x86-only solution isn't viable.

Re: [Patch] VHD support

(Hopefully) set the HDD type when the MFM controller is selected, and the user loads a VHD with one of the supported geometries. (Does this actually do anything elsewhere in PCem?) It's mainly a hint to the user when setting up machines. Some of the early MFM controllers only support a few hard dri...

Re: [Patch] Configurable Mac Address

Committed at rev 1186. I moved it from the global config file to the per-machine config, as that seemed the more logical place to me.

Yes, you need to run setup on the AT diagnostics disc and configure the hard drive there.

Re: VHD support

I _think_ that you need to modify hd_file() - if the image is a VHD, then skip the call to check_hd_type() and HdSizeDlg, and instead load the CHS data from the VHD footer.

Re: VHD support

Sorry, there's always a huge number of other things that need doing, so this request keeps slipping. Does anyone else fancy implementing it? It shouldn't need any real knowledge of the emulator code - all the hard disc image code is abstracted into hdd_file.c so shouldn't need to touch much other co...

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.

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'.

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.

2.4 with AHA-1542C fixed in rev 1162. I think that rev may have also fixed the IDE issue.
