Re: Change of resolution with Voodoo 2 card + Pentium III emulation ?!

Also techncially possible != practically possible. I doubt today's Ryzens can do an Athlon Thunderbird w/ V5... note that there's certain emulation communities that deny the existence of non-intel x86 cpus in computer history, which leads to misinformation that pcem can't go beyond p55c and that it...

Re: Change of resolution with Voodoo 2 card + Pentium III emulation ?!

As for Pentium III... Katmai extension requirements in video games weren't until around 2005 so there's not much 'need' for that. P3/P4 minimum specs were usually more for their performance targets, and supporting Athlon users was still important. It's probably technically more likely to hack in K7...

Re: How do i install a patch to PCEM V15?

I never done it, but I guess you have to download the source code, replace the patch files and compile it.
Here is a good guide: http://pcem-emulator.co.uk/phpBB3/viewt ... ?f=3&t=845

If I remember correctly, the Voodoo 3 can run on even a Pentium I, no mmx.
Yes, but why would you run a Voodoo3 on a Pentium I? A single Voodoo2 would yield the same results (I think)

I have an Intel 4790k at stock clock and runs a Pentium MMX 200 quite well Can your i7-4790k do anything other than the pentium mmx 200? and also do you have the hyperthreading off? apparently PCem works better if hyperthreading is off.

Here it seems to be the chipset of the XPS 466V.
It has to be one of the chipsets already emulated, as there is no new chipset in this patch

I'm currently looking and trying to understand "pc87306.c" - I noticed that all entries with pclog are commented with a double slash. Did you forget to remove those comments? Because they are not compiled and that logging is very useful

Thanks for testing! I found another bug:

When I toggle fullscreen (Ctrl+ALT+Page down) and go back to window mode again, I can't activate the menu in sam and max (F1) anymore. Can you replicate this behaviour, too?
Try using different renders: eg. OpenGL, Direct3D, etc
