Re: [Request] Add the new AMI NEAT 286 BIOS from 86box

Fenix77 only joined last September, so wasn't around for the original nightmare. So it's not unreasonable for him to not be aware of any of this. But in general, the entire 'fork' experience was very unpleasant, and there's a reason everyone involved (with the exception of SA1988, who has been reaso...

Re: [Request] Add the new AMI NEAT 286 BIOS from 86box

I don't remember saying that you're not allowed to mention it. Just that given the history, it's quite likely to piss me off, so caveat emptor.

Re: [REQUEST] ATI Graphics Ultra Pro

And once Sarah has done that, Sarah has a list of things to add/work on that's longer than a really big fucking long list. So feature requests will largely be ignored for the foreseeable future.

Re: PCem and laptop i7 8550u CPU

Performance won't be brilliant, the 8550u only runs at 1.8 GHz. I'd guess around Pentium 90 or so would be about as fast as you could get.

Re: [Request] Nvidia Riva 128 , TNT, TNT2 ,Matrox video cards

One day? Maybe. But it would be several years out - emulating even one of these cards would be a vast amount of work, and I have no plans to work on any of them in the foreseeable future.

Re: 266MMX slower than P70

Because neither chip actually shipped? Desktop Pentium MMX peaked at 233, 266 and 300 MHz chips don't appear to have ever been sold. There is a (rare) _embedded_ PMMX 266, but that appears to be the same Tilamook core as used by the Mobile chip.

Hi, new here. Thanks for adding me. I have a lot of them, please bear with me, they're pretty straightforward. I'd use a wiki, but can't find one. 1.) Do MMX Pentiums take more CPU to emulate? Yes - they're slightly faster than non-MMX Pentiums of the same clock speed, so they will take more host C...

Re: FPU 80-bit accuracy

Only on x86 - non-x86 platforms have to use softfloat. Since PCem also runs on ARM (as of a couple of days ago), portability isn't an academic question anymore and an x86-only solution isn't viable.

Re: [Patch] VHD support

(Hopefully) set the HDD type when the MFM controller is selected, and the user loads a VHD with one of the supported geometries. (Does this actually do anything elsewhere in PCem?) It's mainly a hint to the user when setting up machines. Some of the early MFM controllers only support a few hard dri...

Yes, you need to run setup on the AT diagnostics disc and configure the hard drive there.

Re: VHD support

I _think_ that you need to modify hd_file() - if the image is a VHD, then skip the call to check_hd_type() and HdSizeDlg, and instead load the CHS data from the VHD footer.
