Re: [Feature Suggestion] Language pack

My opinion: All the PCem options are really easy to read even if English is not your native language. Maybe a better idea would be to have better documentation on how to run PCem for "newbies" or how to read some options like those in the Stats But, if a language pack is included I wouldn't mind, ju...

Re: Patch: Toshiba T3100e

Nice add! Does the screen look redish too?
Maybe we could have something like Ctrl+Shift or Alt+Shift to simulate the Fn key

I believe this was fixed after v12 was released. If you wait a month or two v13 will be released

Re: questions about pcem

You're running the game from the CD and the game wants to write something to it and, of course as it a CD-ROM it can't write. Copy all the contents of the CD to a folder in the hard disk and run it from there

Is "Internal IDE" and is the only option in the old GUI, I don't know how to compile the new one, but if you didn't update it, that explains it. I'll have to wait for v13. Thanks!

Re: 8086 emulation

Most versions (if not all) that you get from abandonware sites only contains the files (not disk images) and cracked, so floppy protection can be easily circumvented

Music is in MIDI format. Maybe you don't listen to it because it has very low volume. (An already well known issue in PCem)

Re: questions about pcem

I think I figured out what happens with Earthworm Jim. This game has Audio tracks. I first ran the with the PCem's image option of CUE/BIN, and I believe the music begins to sound, but stops after 1 or 2 seconds. Then, I mounted the image with a host utility (Alcohol 120%) and chose PC'em option of ...

No problem! Windows 98 is OK for DOS gaming! But I'm not understanding what is your problem... Does Windows 98's setup shutdown when you try to install it?

Re: questions about pcem

Ok, get WinImage and a bootable DOS 6.22 disk image
Make the HDD image with PCem
Configure the BIOS
Boot PCem with the bootable disk inserted, run fdisk, format the HDD, make the C bootable by running SYS C: from the floppy drive
Quite cumbersome, but it is exactly as it was in the old days!

Re: questions about pcem

What kind of games would you like to play? DOS or Windows 9x?

For light DOS games an easy way would be to have a bootable DOS disk (you can get it from the internet very easly) and another drive (B:) with the game itself

You need to create a virtual hard disk (PCem has the option when you select the HD) Then you can open the IMA/IMG with any utility (I use WinImage) and inject the games file to the virtual hd or... you can mount a CD image with the game the same goes to to floppy images.

Re: [Patch] Epson PC AX3

In my screenshot it would work as pictured, I just though that for 386 and upper you would always want to enter a value in MB, I wasn't aware of those atypical motherboards.

I really love your radio button idea on all machines!
