Re: [Bug] Crash-causing bug in instruction 0x86 on x64 dynar

I have concerns (about you, @TomWalker) as I have seen quite frequent pragmatic behaviors in your development, and you only tend to care about mainstream applications (games, common OSes, etc.) If you don't like PCem, then kindly fuck off. Tom has spent HIS SPARE TIME to give us such an incredible ...

Re: Dynarec execution rate plummeting drastically at DOS pro

Re: retrosoftware svn...... completely dead

Nice, thanks neozeed. : ) It's the least I can do in these 'dark' times... I'm sure the main repository will be up soon enough. Now I kind of regret not doing a full pull at some point beforehand. Or worse I deleted all the build versions I'd downloaded a day before the server went offline. :x :oops:

if you want to track, just run

Re: ati VGA Edge-16 test 800x600x16 colour mode failure

This appears to be a case of Windows programming some weird register to specify the SVGA display height that PCem doesn't take into account. It fails in MS-DOS too... so it's something about this ATI mode. I guess somewhere in vid_svga? No, it would be in the ATI-specific source file. Remember, eac...
