Re: Distribution packaging support?

Linux PCem is also fairly poor, so I'm not sure that encouraging wider distribution in its current state is a great idea.

Re: Development screenshots

A number of fixes get BeOS 5 working... mostly. You have to run using the 'Award SiS 496/497' system to get the mouse working, and there seems to be some kind of FPU issue.

Re: 3DFX emulation

I used Trip ( http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=2844 ) as a quick DOS-based Glide test - it has a couple of bugs but is mostly okay, and can run from a clean boot. Tomb Raider and GTA also work well for this. It's like i'm trying to do it to a 16-bit buffer, but as far as I know I have converted i...

Okay, I can reproduce this now, but it doesn't seem to be a result of any recent changes.

So maybe try ensuring that something is in the drive, assuming it ...

Re: Dynamic recompiler

The cache emulation is a massive horrible hack which does an extremely bad job of simulating a cache, hence the extremely vague settings. I was actually considering removing it altogether; I can't think of a way to improve it without completely destroying emulator performance.

The Windows desktop is massively affected by the somewhat crap cache emulation. I would expect performance in actual applications to be a bit more modest.
