Re: [Patch] CGA monochrome & selectable mono display

Are you sure you did this right? In your commit, I see you made the code directly put palette indexes into the 32-bit color buffer which I'm not sure is right.

Well, I guess eventually this could be modified to be done on a per-card level, though that would introduce code duplication.

Re: Config manager

Shouldn't the config parser do sanity checks, and either auto-correct values to valid ones or show a message box and then terminate the emulator? It would certainly be better than a potential crash.

Re: [BUG] Windows 95 desktop corruption with S3 Trio64

The whole long list of Trio64 bugs/glitches I just mentioned, affects not only the Number Nine and Phoenix Trio64 emulation, but also the Phoenix Trio32 emulation and the Paradise Bahamas 64 (S3 Vision864) emulation, which is no surprise since all of them use the same emulation core, which is Sarah's.

Re: PCem v12 and Sound Lag

- Katakis: He said the emulator runs on 100%, so the emulation speed is not the problem here. I think it has to do with old GCC and the probably more buggy OpenAL library it has.

Re: PCem v12 and Sound Lag

It might be the really old GCC Sarah is still compiling with, since it does seem that her builds have this lag, while builds compiled with newer GCC (eg. 5.x or 6.x) do not have that lag.

But in any case, the 9FX Vision emulation is not really complete from what I know as it seems to differ in ways from a stock Trio64.

Re: Awards do not detect floppies

Known bug with the SiS 496/497 BIOS used by PCem, which is revision 1, as well as a few other Award BIOS'es. For some reason, it expects a 720k drive to be 40-track instead of the correct 80. For the SiS 496/497, revision 3 of the BIOS fixes the problem.

Re: Support for 5.25 fd-formatted floppy

You don't need to. Just look under image information in WinImage. In fact, we can safely assume it's two sides and with 512-byte sectors, so all we need to know is sectors per track and the image's size in bytes, then the rest can be calculated.
