Katakis, you may need to refresh the web site or clear the browser's cache The front page eventually updated for me, but as soon as v13.1 was released, but I didn't need to refresh anything.

Re: v13 - Mouse Issues

I use OS X too but I also have access to Windows. So it hasn't bothered me much. OS X* is my primary OS I use, and I normally run Windows programs through Wine. If Wine isn't able to take the heat, then I use VMWare Fusion to run them natively. To get back on topic: I ran PCem v12 and previous vers...

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.

From the menu. select Misc > Machine to bring up the PCem Machine, then go to Settings > Configure. Click the tab that looks like a gray speaker. The options drop-down box should include a SB PCI 128.

Re: v13 - Mouse Issues

There should be a linux binary, why bother with Wine in the first place? Because I am using OS X, not Linux. Wine for OS X is called Wineskin, and it has a GUI built-in to it, and it only allows you to make use of .exe or .msi files, not native Linux applications. As far as I know, there are a few ...

Re: v13 - Mouse Issues

I just found out that it was a problem with Wine, not PCem. Changing Wine's screen mode to X11 instead of Mac Driver makes the mouse go fast, but it tends to jump to a random position as I move it. Also, I notice that the host mouse cursor appears out of nowhere even if I pressed CTRL-END to release...

Re: v13 - Mouse Issues

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.

I have a config attached if it helps.

v13 - Mouse Issues

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-...

V13 freeze on Friday the 13th, which also happens to be in October.
Great, perhaps PCem can have codenames which Sarah can put in the title bar to make sure we don't forget. I was going to put some examples here, but I am not creative enough?

Re: v12 released!

i remember that Tom was in charge of PCem before v10 (?) before you took over. Did he feel that you had more knowledge of PCs than him, or what? I saw him developing an Acorn Archimedes emulator which I already downloaded, but never got to try it out myself.

Sarah admitted that she did SCSI emulation for a different project, and maybe implementing this in PCem is the surprise.

Re: PCem build guide

Thanks, but the last of the instructions, where you type $ make -f Makefile.mingw doesn't work. Does the command only apply to Linux, or does dreamer mean cmake -f?

If so, it says it is expecting a directory, not a file.

So a while back, you may have seen my thread asking why there was no port of PCem for OS X. Someone suggested that I should run it through Wine. I am using Wine to run emulators like VICE, EightyOne, WinUAE, and PCem; and all of them run under Wine very well. So, you might be thinking "But Katakis, ...
