86box, PCem-X, PCem-experimental and PCem-unofficial

Postby SarahWalker » Mon 04 Jul, 2016 5:12 pm

There have been a lot of people asking questions about 86box, PCem-X, PCem-experimental, or PCem-unofficial.

These are NOT supported here! These are all unofficial experimental branches created by Battler, that I have had nothing to do with.

This forum is for mainline PCem only (ie the releases at [url]pcem-emulator.co.uk[/url]).

I'm actually considering making the repository private and password-protecting the Jenkins (and removing old binaries from my server), and give details only to people I can trust they won't ask for support with it here. Because it's evident that regardless of how clear I make things, people will insist on asking here.

This is why I can't wait for the code differences between PCem-Unofficial and mainline PCem to get reduced to the point when PCem-Unoffiical will no longer have a reason to exist.

That would be a pity Battler. I'd ban anyone who asks for PCem-u here, plain and simple.

I wonder why people do, anyway, even after the project has been renamed to PCem-Unofficial, which couldn't make it clearer that's, well, not official.

But well, in any case, PCem-Unofficial support is on either http://forum.softhistory.org or #pcem-x @ irc.ringoflightning.net / irc.rol.im . KiwiIRC link here.

Edit: Channel moved to #softhistory , same IRC network: #softhistory @ irc.ringoflightning.net / irc.rol.im . KiwiIRC link here.

Pre-compiled binaries are at our Jenkins located at http://polar.rol.im (it's no longer on port 8080).

Battler,I will hope PCem-X, PCem-experimental and PCem-unofficial will have Phoenix BIOS and faster processor (Pentium 3,4 or AMD).

How can there be Pentium 3 or higher when there's not even proper Pentium 2 emulation yet. The Intel i686 emulation in PCem-Unofficial is not really suitable for usage.
