Re: Question about commit 8c60f50

0x1fc000 has been there for years before I picked up the GD5429 again, and I try to modify as little code as possible for each change. Also the currently emulated cards don't support 4MB anyway.

Re: PCem and new Intel CPUs

Either of those CPUs should run Pentium MMX + Voodoo 2 at decent speeds. I'm currently using a 7700k at stock frequency, and most games will run 100% with a 200 MMX and Voodoo 2, usually the CPU can be clocked higher. I don't think the additional core count of the 8700k is going to make much of a di...

Re: 430/VX with AWE32 crashes emulator on start

Btw, what is your view about using intrinsics in Pcem? https://software.intel.com/sites/landingpage/IntrinsicsGuide/# Fine as long as there's a fallback for when not building for x86 - that's not a reality currently but I do want to make PCem more portable for v15.

EDIT3: Aside of the crash, the implementation of the filter is definitely broken. Printing the coeffs for frequency 45454 gives this result:
I'll take a look and try to fix, if yo don't do that faster than me.
Could you explain what exactly is broken about it? It looks (and sounds) okay to me.

Re: 430/VX with AWE32 crashes emulator on start

Rev 1037 fixes the out-of-bounds access that I believe was causing the crash. Rev 1038 initialises the filter to something sensible on emulator startup.

Re: [Patch] Packard Bell Legend 300SX

Committed at rev 1031.

I think that this (or the seemingly identical 316SX) is the first PC I ever used.

For the record, this system has an OTI-067 onboard, uses an ACC Micro 2036 chipset and a UM82C862F SuperIO chip, none of which are currently emulated.

Re: 430VX and Win98/ME now crashes PCem

I've finally been able to reproduce this! Fix in rev 1019.

For the record, what is happening is that an unidentified driver (possibly for a tape streamer?) is executing commands on a non-existent drive 3, and does not handle unexpected FDC behaviour very well.

On a side note, I don't know if you have some reference for the ATAPI commands.
Numerous - the official ATA/ATAPI specs are freely available, and much more reliable than relying on a random wiki.

Re: How music is emulated in PCem (MIDI)

Do you have AWE32 selected for both sound effects and music in Duke's setup? I know there's a bug there, setting sound effects to SB16 will work around it. The 'MIDI out device' setting is for General MIDI output via port 0x330 only. PCem will emulate the real AWE32 synth for games that directly sup...

That's no use I'm afraid - the stack appears to be totally corrupted :(

Thanks for sending me the binary. I'm guessing though that it isn't the same build that you generated the above backtrace with, as none of the addresses match. Could you post a backtrace from the binary you've sent me?

Re: 430VX and Win98/ME now crashes PCem

That looks like a potentially useful backtrace; pity there aren't any symbols!

If you can't get a build with symbols, could you send me the binary that generated that backtrace? I may be able to figure out what's going on from that.
