Re: 3DFX emulation

I think we're going to have to wait for someone to actually buy a Ryzen before we know if it's worthwhile or not. My gut feeling is it's _probably_ worth waiting for the second generation at least. I'd expect though that if you buy a big i7 you probably won't be disappointed. gen_angry got some pre...

Re: 3DFX emulation

Adding SLI emulation is a major development for PCem. I have never run a PC with an SLI configuration, so I am eager to use this feature when the time comes. So, we finally DID have our surprise for v13 after all Sarah! ;) Adding SLI to PCem would seem to raise the question of buying an Intel or AM...

Seems this program is leaning me more and more towards a Ryzen Build. I am interested to see what the next chips from AMD bring.

Re: Black Dahlia says not enough free space

Used a Pirate first CD and it installed without any trouble or fixes or patches. As far as I can tell once installed the game is running just fine so likely some problem with the disc and you are all right not a PCEM problem.

That one just works for some reason seems everything is working as it should and the original .exe is now working as well. Now I got a crash after trying to boot from the HDD but I will mess around with that a bit and see how it goes before starting a new thread.

If you got a computer that can run SLI emulation I am definitely envious. LOL, no, of course I don't.

I am excited to hear that 500-600 Mhz could be reach on modern hardware. That is about as far as you really need to go beyond that I find Virtualization picks up the rest of the slack for Windows games at least. Hell a 450 Pentium II should really be fine.
