Re: PCem v9 won't run...

I added libstdc++-6.dll, I don't believe any others should be required.

Re: Oak OTI-067 graphics card problem...

It doesn't identify itself as anything other than 'Acer' but I'd guess it's probably a Phoenix.It's pretty closely tied to the specific system.

If you REALLY want to run it then I'd suggest buying a 386SX/25N and dumping the BIOS yourself. Otherwise just emulate one of the other 386 systems...

Re: Oak OTI-067 graphics card problem...

I will look at this, but please stop using random BIOSes with the Acermate. It does not use an AMI BIOS, and running a BIOS on a chipset it's not designed for can cause all sorts of weird problems.

Re: Acermate 386SX/25N emulated machine does not work!

The Acermate machine works fine if you have the correct ROMs. If you're using the ROMs that are floating around the net, they are completely wrong.

The PCI 486 clone has been deliberately disabled due to emulation issues.

Re: Slow playback (Wave, midi, cdaudio)

actually my host speed is 3.3Ghz with 8GB of RAM (quite powerful) My machine is a similar spec. PCem currently averages about 80 host cycles for one emulated instruction, hence the upper limit is about 40-50 MIPS, which when emulating a 486-class CPU works out as somewhere between 66 and 133 MHz de...

Buy a faster host machine. PCem is slow.

The speed indicator in the title bar is an indicator for this sort of thing.

Re: S3 render fix patch

I won't accept the patch as-is, as it's a hack rather than a proper fix (the S3 blitter has no knowledge whatsoever of the current display depth - that's a property of the RAMDAC, and isn't even on the same chip on 864 boards). I will look into the issue though.

Re: 2 issues with LBA2

Looks like LBA2 requires segment limits to be emulated; it copies a 640x480 bitmap to A0000, which is accessed through FS which has been given a limit of 0xffff bytes, and appears to use the faults triggered as a a result to switch video memory banks. This explains the limited amount of video shown ...

Also, was a pclog.txt file generated? If so, could you post the contents here.
