Re: NSSI 0.6.0.45 hangs in PCem v11 r518

I downloaded the program, and effectively it crashes at detecting the copro. Of course, selecting an SX 486 works fine.
Strange, I tested with a Pentium MMX (430VX) that also has a on-die copro and detects it fine

Re: PCem v11 mouse issues

Ok, I stand corrected. The releasing of the emulator to the host OS works fine with the press of the middle button on Windows 8. It happens that I was using the Diablo III mouse with the default Windows driver, and pushing the middle button writes the character "v", now I installed the manufacturer'...

Re: Will this cpu improve performance on pc-em?

so i was wondering,since my mobo supports only socket lga 1150,and i have a chance to buy an I7 Intel I7 4790 3,6 Ghz,will the performance improve a lot,or there would be a barely noticeable improvement? If you can, buy the K version, the 4790k. You can easily overclock it to 4.5 ghz as mine I can ...

Re: CPU Speed PCem vs Real CPU

I'm not answering your question directly, but I have a question myself. Does PCem have a built-in FPS counter? Is what I have circled in red? Because it says 0 frames/sec and (612) then I interpret is 6,12 fps?

PCem is quite CPU demanding, I'll give you that, but I tried SC2K with a Pentium MMX 233 and it runs always at 100% with all in game speeds.

It's quite easy. Clicking on the lego with the wrench you'll access the video options. Once there, make sure it says "Hardware"

Re: Lego Creator Freezes when using S3 virge/DX acceleration

I selected the Mach 64 as the 2D video card and you have you check Voodoo Graphics in the Configuration Box, once in Windows you need to install the drivers for both cards. You can choose any other 2D card you may like, as long as it has the working driver (Voodoo won't work with standard windows dr...

Re: Lego Creator Freezes when using S3 virge/DX acceleration

Yeah, that's the latest driver. I played LEGO Creator again, and, yes... running it in Harware mode crashes the game, I must have played in Software before. You can play using the ViRGE DX in soft mode, or another video card (I tested the Mach 64) plus the Voodoo in Hardware mode and works fine. But...

Re: [PATCH] CD-ROM improvements

As a matter of fact, ISO files are the worst extension IMHO since they can only contain one track and many games of the late 90's have more than one track (data+audio tracks), so ISO files can't handle those games.

Re: Lego Creator Freezes when using S3 virge/DX acceleration

Do you have the latest drivers for the ViRGE? Also, the game asked to install some codecs or plugins. Did they install correctly? Do you have the DirectX required to run it?
Are you running Win 95 on the 430 VX chipset?

Re: Development on Voodoo2 or 3 and OpenGL output.

First off, I'm not part of the development team, but from what I've been reading, and from the expierience I had using PCem, voodoo 1 emulation consumes a lot of CPU power (I have a 4790k and it can barely handle it). So, having Voodoo2 or 3, would requiere the latest Xeons to work, so I understand ...
