Re: unfinished PowerVR PCX emulation stub

LOL, even my RIVA TNT emulation is more complete. at least that does VESA, and somewhat tries to emulate the card.

Re: [PATCH] CPU REP fix

Latest Arch Linux Live CD doesn't boot

While PCem-Experimental can boot the CD, but not the kernel, due to only emulating the Pentium, vanilla PCem fails to even boot the CD from the BIOS!

Re: FredPJ's feature suggestions

Well, I wrote the nVidia emulation, and I think that code is relatively clean. It can only do VESA though, as development has stalled at trying to get the Win9x drivers to work. I tried submitting that code to you in the past, but you rejected it after seemingly barely looking at it. That's why I st...

Re: Security issues in PCem [possible emulator escape]

I'm pretty sure PCem isn't the only emulator where this sort of thing is possible, and very far from the most popular one. I will fix these issues, I'm just saying that this isn't something really worth worrying about that much. Actually, the only other emulator that's had these issues is ZSNES. A ...

Re: v10 released!

The two AMI BIOS'es only support PS/2 mouse, but PCem gives the Advanced/EV a serial mouse, hence why it doesn't detect it. And yes, for some reason, some PCem crashes can be nasty. Especially when 64-bit PCem for Windows crashes, it will slow down the entire host input event handler until it is fo...

Is there any way I might be able to look at the original instruction sequence and the code b...

Re: ati VGA Edge-16 test 800x600x16 colour mode failure

This appears to be a case of Windows programming some weird register to specify the SVGA display height that PCem doesn't take into account. It fails in MS-DOS too... so it's something about this ATI mode. I guess somewhere in vid_svga? No, it would be in the ATI-specific source file. Remember, eac...
