Re: Cannot access CD-ROM drive at all

Oh, I guess you're using MacOS...

BTW, the configuration of CD-ROM is below Disc -> Configure Hard Disk... on that dialog you may configure your hard disk (obviously) but also "place" your virtual CD-ROM on a specific IDE port, so you don't have to edit .cfg files manually.

Re: Extended ReadMe or PCem Hardware Documentation Project

In those computers (like that PC2086) that had only a (few) HDD model, I'd document the CHS settings. Also, keep in mind that the RLL HDD is not compatible with XT-IDE (=the computer CMOS or motherboard must not have any HDD configured). I don't know if you mean to say that the computer can have an ...

Re: Cannot access CD-ROM drive at all

Remember that nvr files changed place, maybe your old CMOS configuration has been replaced. Have you got into CMOS and verify that there are a CD-ROM configured there? Also, you can select now channel and master/slave position for your CD-ROM. If your BIOS don't support two IDE channels, you may nee...

Some issues with v11

I've been testing PCem v11 with some old configurations from v10, and I've run into some issues. - The "model" index has changed. A v10 config from a Compaq Desktop is now a 286 computer. - RAM sizes and floppy configurations also change, I don't know it that's because those configurations are inval...

Re: Building PCem

Maybe if he set up a cross-compiling environment.

The problem is that a makefile lacks the instructions needed to build some files. Maybe is he missing some libraries or there is a bug on that makefile?

Re: Help with reading disc?

It seems that you have a disc with a DOS (or Windows 16 bit) and a MacOS program. If you need to make a copy, any modern CD burner will do the job; if you need to make it work... well, you'll need an emulator or an old computer. Some things you can try: - Use it in a computer with Windows XP (32 bit...

Re: Joystick detection

The original joystick port for IBM PCs allowed two joysticks composed of two axis and two buttons, and that's the thing emulated on PCem. Some joysticks/gamepads "borrowed" connections of the second joystick to form a typical two axis/four buttons combo or even a four axis/four buttons thing (but th...

Re: Miscellaneous bugs / what am I doing wrong?

Sorry, but I forgot to mention that these issues happens both in Windows and Linux. I usually run PCem in Windows, but I've got only the proper tools to compile on Linux (so all tests on Windows run the standard 10.1 version and the tests on Linux run a later version). About the PC2086, I use CTRL+A...

Miscellaneous bugs / what am I doing wrong?

I've been trying to build some computers on vanilla 10.1, and I've run into some "features" of this emulator. Maybe they're bugs, maybe I'm doing something wrong... anyone can help? UI: Some VGA and sound cards have options to configure them. But choosing one of this cards (i.e.: a TVGA9440) and the...

Re: Another wishlist

I was thinking about other things when I wrote about the monitor, but not ghosting. Some things I thought: - If a mono monitor is connected, convert colours to shades of grey, amber or green. I think it would be easy. - Relating monitor and video card. A PC1512 could have been connected to CGA mono ...

Another wishlist

Because everybody is making their own suggestions, I'd like to add my wishlist. I hope ther won't be too much repeated items... Documentation synced with the release. The docs included are not up to date. Some examples: - The docs states that ibmat BIOS files are at111585.0 and at111585.1, when they...
