Re: PCem is still open (background process)

The only incidents i've seen it 'stay open' is when closing off a 256mb machine and quitting really fast probably during dump. This has bit me a couple times between rapid compile+test+change+compile cycles during development.

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

It's possible - if you're willing to write code and program the chipsets they expect. You can't simply just drop any rom in and expect it to function.

Re: VHD support

I'm starting to try it and it's been working good so far!

Couldn't mount my larger VHDs beyond 32gb though :( but i'm surprised at the dynamic vhd support in this early, which is very handy for fresh setup.

Re: Is drive sound emulation possible?

I haven't been working on it since that video though, procrastinplanning on the CD-ROM sounds at the moment, and there's the GUI integration ideas. The hard drives could really use a mute button and while i'm proud of how my floppy drive sounds are still, i'm not sure if it could be versatile enough...

Re: Fix Makefile.in for build

Anything to avoid autotools on Windows is much appreciated. From my experience, autotools has been nowhere near the "it's easy just install run autotools" experience expected around linux circles - at least for the old MinGW32 toolchain I use anyway, which probably has its own "just use X upgrade yo...

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.

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 ...

I would think the joystick is taking over, immediately playing and not letting you hit space bar for keyboard play.

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...

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.
