Re: "Disk I/O Error" when switching machines

No LBA. If by absolute path you mean the exact location of my HD image, then yes. Maybe posting my config would help.

"Disk I/O Error" when switching machines

I didn't have this problem before, but I have one particular 1GB hard drive I told about containing Windows 95. It works perfectly, but if I switch to a different machine, its CMOS settings detect the HDD if I set the type to "[IDE] Standard IDE", yet I get slapped with a "Disk I/O error", which see...

Re: Problems with some Origin games

I will add that no matter which chipset/video card you use, the mouse cursor in Crusader: No Remorse goes as far as the middle of the screen and does not move further down.

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.

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?

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.
