Re: Shutdown Or Close Window

Yeah, that is what I do with my fake Windows 95 machine. In future versions of Windows (from Windows 2000 onward), the PC shuts down automatically.

Re: Error: No ROM Basic System Halted

That makes sense. I didn't experience this error before, especially when I used the same BIOS back in the day.
Many thanks!

Error: No ROM Basic System Halted

I am trying to install MS-DOS 6.2 and Windows 3.1 on my 250MB HD. AMI WinBIOS boots up fine and I was able to start the installation program for DOS. Within the program, I chose to configure all the unallocated space on my HD and then it asks me to restart the system so that installation can continu...

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...

unable to compile PCem under Linux

I am a new Linux user that switched over from macOS, and I am trying to compile under Pinguy 18.04 (which is based on Ubuntu 18.04). I made sure that I had sdl2, wxWidgets, and OpenAL installed first. But when I enter "./configure --enable-release", it returns with this error: 'C compiler cannot cre...

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

[BUG] Crusader: No Remorse - teleporter does not work

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...

managed to compile and run PCem - some issues

I decided to post a new thread about this as I believe the "Mac OS X" thread is there for discussing problems with compiling. So I was able to compile and run PCem v14 on macOS 10.12, but when I run ./pcem, I get the messages "Menu item not found: 1403" and "Menu item not found: 1404" and it cycles ...

Re: request save state feature

They can be useful for games like Grand Theft Auto where you are forced to complete an entire section (which is quite long) for the game to automatically save your progress.

Sarah, DOSBox Daum Cafe already has save state support. You could look at the code and try to implement it in PCem.

The PS/2 option seems to work (mouse = 2), but the problems with the cursor is still there, no matter what Render options I tried (OpenGL, Direct3D, and Software are available, OpenGL 3.0 is not.) I don't use VSync at all.

In v13, mouse support seems to be broken. When I used the previous stable release, the mouse supports worked perfectly fine under both MS-DOS and Windows 95, when using the "Microsoft 2-button mouse (serial)" option. But in v13, Windows 95 does not detect the mouse at all, and the mouse works in MS-...
