PCem speed drops, no problems before

I am running Windows 98 on my AMD Ryzen 5 6-core. I didn't have any problem with speed while running the operating system through elementaryOS, with the following settings: Machine: [Socket 7] Shuttle HOT-557 CPU: Intel Pentium 120 Memory: 32MB Display Device: S3 Virge/DX, Fast 16-bit Device: Sound ...

Re: Unable to compile PCem v16 for Linux

What caused the error in the first place was me individually installing gcc first in the Ubuntu repository instead of build-essential first.

miraMiracle: "And by the way: did you compile PCem that it works before?"

I had LMD installed on my Mac machine and compiled v15 there, and I had no problems

Unable to compile PCem v16 for Linux

I am attempting to compile PCem v16 on my new system (AMD Ryzen 5 3600, 16GB RAM, nVidia GeForce 1650) running Ubuntu 20.04. I always followed the instructions in the Readme-LINUX.txt file, and I seemed to compile previous PCems without any problems, but that was done on a different system, but PCem...

For some reason, I have the same problem in PCem. Managed to fix that by quitting and re-starting the emulator.

I don't see a pattern here.
The date of the releases so far was:

April 20, 2018
May 19, 2019

I thought there must be some kind of pattern there. As for the release, I may be right, I may be wrong.
Besides I was joking, hence the "lol" at the end.

Re: How to connect a folder in PCem to my own Computer?

I'd use WinImage to create a new disk image then transfer the driver file onto the image. Then when you boot up your OS within PCem, you will be able to drag the driver file onto the desktop or just load up the driver from whatever drive the disk is in. (eg: if you created a 1.4M image with the driv...

Re: unable to compile PCem under Linux

Good news. The main problem was with PinguyOS 18.04. It would not let me compile PCem in a Terminal without complaining about broken dependencies, and when I tried to install those ones, it gave me more dependencies to worry about, and then it went on and on until I just gave up. Even when I tried w...

It is a quicksave file where I saved before the point before I have to walk to the teleporter.

In Mission 13, you are supposed to free Sgt. Brooks from WEC prison, and then follow her through the teleporter next to her cell so that you return to base. But when you play this game through PCem, nothing ever happens even though it is activated. I don't think this is the result of a configuration...
