Re: PCem and New Intel Laptop CPUs

Also remember - booting Windows 9x will make the current recompiler (and interpreter!) struggle. always. there's no computer that can, so don't judge cpus from that instead, run Quake in DOS as that won't upset the recompiler. For me drop under 100% for that, I have to make fictional 333+mhz Pentium...

Re: v14 compatibility & bug list (WIP)

I don't like being asked when my projects would be done and out either. Overentitlement is demotivation and derailing a compatibility list thread for WHEN PCEM is extremely rude to begin with.

You don't need the SDK, just the runtime installer

I don't have much experience with the Plantronics other than using it as a CGA with overscan borders (which seems to be missing emulation on about every other card).

Re: Multiplayer on PCem

if anything i'd only bother to play TCP/IP stuff rather than any IPX tunneling (or any tunneling. the out of syncs could be the worst) and it would have to be on a server I entrust - which is not many game servers these days!

Re: Is drive sound emulation possible?

OK I've made floppy sounds now and i've done it this way: - there's two samples used for the head moving, and 2 samples used for the step, and 2 sounds used for the motor (which right now only turns on when seek is called and loops 6 times then stops) - fdc.c has a bunch of stuff_floppy_seek calls ...

Re: Would like to add my own ROMs to PCem for personal use.

Any accelerated graphics take a ton of dedication to emulate as well and that Quadro mentioned is several generations of technology progress. The best OEM computers you can equate PCem's support to are the Falcon Northwest Mach V systems up to around Dec 1997 (Award-based PMMX233 w/ Obsidian V1s) wi...

Re: Is drive sound emulation possible?

I actually sampled a PD sample of a table saw and sampled an old keyboard (with heavy cleanup). My mics are too noisy to sample my real drives. One idea for floppy sound I have would be playing sounds from different positions in a long floppy read sample according to what sector's read/written to. i...

It's more "Emulates two Voodoo cards and connects them" SLI is short for scanline interleave in that it renders with the other Voodoo card every other line.
