Re: Some performance changes after upgrading to V13

Earlier Pentium timing was too fast. The P166MMX performed more like a P2 300 earlier (and it shouldn't have)

Re: Battle Chess Enhanced CD-ROM for DOS, version 1.00

Oddly I can't seem to reproduce this on AMI486 with Cx486 on recompiler with the Tgui9440 and CDchess configured for Trident and DOS 6.22. How's your CONFIG.SYS? Since you've got DOS 6.22 you could try running MEMMAKER for luck. EDIT: couldn't reproduce it on SIS496, 16mb nor interpreter either. I a...

Re: v13 - Mouse Issues

Ensure you're still using the proper mouse device in the config, since the addition of the Mouse Systems 3-button mouse can bump this.

In addition, using Vsync with the OpenGL backends will cause mouse delays.

Re: Finishable games

Please don't derail the thread about starting wikis (which I disagree about given their huge maintenance overhead) and emulators. My intent was a screenshot gallery of linked game endings after finishing a game within PCem to verify their playability in the simplest briefest way possible.

Finishable games

Simply a list thread where a game is fully finishable from start to end without major issues. It's not a compatibility list. Games without endings need not apply. Potential spoilers ahead.

I'll start:

Re: v13 released!

Maybe more as an option. Replacing working components with SDL is a huge YMMV for Windows users, and there's the potential to take advantage of OpenAL's EFX stuff to simulate a pc speaker against a metal case+positioning (As well as doing that for future sound effects of drives working)

Re: PCem 13 first impressions

V2 SLI unfortunately doesn't help Q3's texture thrashing all that much. r_picmip 1 is still advised. The next step up (Voodoo Banshee 16MB) would be far better for Q3 at r_picmip 0 Another note on the V2 SLI is that it dioesn't implement the screen filter at 1024x768 so there shouldn't be any perfor...

Re: Ensoniq AudioPCI Sound Issue

I've noticed and mentioned the crackling since it was committed. It's more obvious on OpenAL Soft than Creative's OpenAL driver.

There are some cases where the crackling should be real though (Epic dos games)

No. There is no hardware passthrough anywhere and it's unlikely you'll ever find an ISA Sound Blaster in a machine that can run PCem well.

Re: Descent 3 Demo Graphical Issues

I don't see graphical issues here - I just see an unfortunate decision to use the Virge for a game it doesn't have the caps for. This is obviously not the emulated Voodoo cards.

Also D3 didn't have a 1997 demo. Its earliest demo is from October 98.

Of course it's a 2D effect (Direct3D supports 2D blitting on 3dfx), and on PCem's V2 that picture wouldn't even show up (I get the desktop instead, which may be a clue that it's rendering the screen but not switched to the V2) Also i've been playing through Half-Life with a PMMX233+SBPCI128+V2SLI an...

Re: Windows 98 FE to SE upgrade crash

Was able to reproduce this on Winchip Interpreter with Virge........on an older build from 3 days ago.

Interestingly it doesn't happen with the Windows Me upgrade disc on Win98.
Doesn't seem to happen with the current tree anymore, or at least i'm not able to reproduce it again.

Yep the transparencies in Puyo Puyo 2 are now fixed.

There's still odd palette corruption when it fades in that though. It's a DirectX2 game (and the game does have a compatibility option to work around the palette bug)

The stock S3 Trio64 driver with Windows 98SE and also the DirectX 5-provided S3 Trio64 driver (on Windows 95).

These drivers reported 1mb back in mid-October.


EDIT: Scitech Display Doctor also erroneously reports it as a 2MB card.

This must have been some sort of regression since the October commits between the 16th and Nov 1st. It'll show all the resolutions it shouldn't do and crash the emulator when you choose one of them.

Re: [Request] Number Nine 9FX Motion 331 Support

Filtered YUV video acceleration and faster memory. You should be able to get away with using the 64V+ bioses at least since they're meant to be Trio64 compatible and I haven't really ran into any issues with my dumped 64V+'s bios with PCem's Trio64 emulation. (However... do not use the 64V+ drivers!)
