Re: v16 released!

I've mentioned it on the IDE HDD thread already, but when the game is run from a RAM drive it is flawless, like on my real Pentium 233 machine. This is a major bottleneck, and does not behave like a period correct IDE HDD drive, please fix that. So... you are playing Duke 3D on PCem on a Pentium 23...

Thank you!

IDE HDD emulation is still slow and stuttery as heck.
With what games do you notice that stutter?

That will most likely be with only one or two cores active though. For V2 SLI running flat out you're going to end up with 7 active threads, at which point you _will_ need to overclock!
How do you end with 7 cores?
1 for the CPU, 1 for each Voodoo2, so far I count 3 threads

Well, stock is 3.60 ghz of course it won't work, but the 9900k reaches 5.00 ghz without overclocking, so I took that 5.00 ghz as stock

Re: How to connect a folder in PCem to my own Computer?

Just a heads-up... I had the same question - was looking for a quick way to transfer small file sets from host (Windows) to guest (PCem or 86box), so I came up with my own hackish solution. It requires a driver (ImDisk Virtual Disk) and doesn't take care of the other direction (guest→host), but it ...

Re: Nox Game (Westwood) Low Performance

By the year 2000 the average processor was the Pentium 3, so the emulated Pentium 1 was too outdated for that year.
You can try to run the game with the FIC motherboard and a K6-II or K6-3 but don't expect 100% emulation speed

Intel and AMD 486

In PCem does the Intel 486 work the same as the AMD one? Here is an interesting one: Duke Nukem 3D v1.3D (latest Shareware version) If I start the game with the Intel 486 it all seems like it crashed BUT whenever I changed the processor from the Intel 486/66 to the AMD 486/66 the game runs fine. htt...
