Re: v13 released!

I don't have any plans to emulate nVidia stuff. Banshee/Voodoo 3 are fairly likely, along with the new recompiler. Though I'm toying with doing a smaller v14 release early in the year, with the new recompiler coming in v15 towards the end of the year. Haven't made any decision on that yet though.

Re: Pre-v13WIP compat list

Yeah, it's just bugs. It's a relatively complex card to emulate, so there's likely to be various bugs/omissions/mistakes/typos - particularly in rarely used features or combinations of features.

Re: Status of Assembly?

Not feasible for PCem's purposes I'm afraid. PCem needs to generate object code directly for the host CPU on the fly for performance reasons.

Re: Status of Assembly?

You could probably hack the emulator to remove any references to any of the recompilers, which _might_ get it running on ARM (assuming there aren't any other issues there). Performance would be absolutely dreadful though. One of my aims with the new recompiler is to make is easier to port to other a...

Re: v13 - Mouse Issues

You can build for OS X the same as for Linux -. /configure then make. The required libraries are available in brew. I haven't put out a Mac binary because the Mac version isn't quite at parity with the Windows & Linux versions - in particular there's no Cd support.

Not quite sure how that would be possible, given that the MFM AT Fixed Disk Adapter was added in v13.

Re: request save state feature

Save states would require quite a lot of code restructuring to make feasible, so they're unlikely to happen any time soon.

Re: [Request] Gravis UltraSound PnP Support

The InterWave chip is somewhat more complicated than the original GF1, so there will be quite a bit more work there. The GUS PnP also has an instrument ROM on board that will need to be dumped.

Re: PCEM -> Crusader Regret CPU Dynamic Recompiled problem.

I'm intending to rewrite the recompiler next year for v14. So I don't see any point spending time working on improving the current recompiler if it's going to die before the next release anyway.

That's the same low pitch problem I was hearing in KQ3 - your version of KQ2 must be using the same code. That's now fixed and will be in the point release I'm doing this weekend.

I've found a bug which causes the KQ3 sound to be far too low pitched. Still can't reproduce any issues with KQ2 though - could one of you record a section of bad audio and post it here?

Re: PCem 13 first impressions

Toshiba T3100e is indeed broken in the released binary. It looks like a bug introduced by GCC's profile feedback optimisation - compiling the same source without -fprofile-* doesn't show the bug. I'll try to put a fixed binary out at the weekend - I don't have the energy for it right now.

There is no toolbar on Linux - this seems to be a limitation of wxWidgets/SDL2. It's a popup menu instead, right-click in the main window.
