Re: I tested ~100 DOS games (v14)

Time Paradox won't work with sound no matter what i tried. Music works with AWE32 (pcem v15), but with sb or sb16... I can't hear anything, yeah. And even with AWE32 I don't have speech (freezes when I want to take the stone in the first screen - not the worst timing, though :P). Can maybe somone e...

Re: PCEm V14 great implementations and future capability suggestions

Antoher suggestion: When I want to change hardware, I have to go to Misc, Machine, Configure and again Machine. Is it possible to add another Option (picture) or at least a key combination so this process is a little bit faster?

Re: Which CD-ROM driver do you use ?

Yeah, oakcdrom.sys and mscdex seems like the most compatible combo. A lot more games from my list work now perfect. Thanks! :)

Re: I tested ~100 DOS games (v14)

Unfortunately, this didn't change anything. Strange bug. Thanks anyway.

Is it maybe because of the fn key on my laptop?

Re: I tested ~100 DOS games (v14)

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?

Re: PCem is still open (background process)

Thanks for your answer JosepMa.
The same happens even if I use notepad.exe in place of pcem.
It's still open as background process? Are you sure? I never have had this problem and I start a lot of programs via batchfile. That's the reason why I reported this problem in the frist place.

PCem is still open (background process)

When I open pcem with a batchfile (like "start /b PCem.exe --config ".\DOS.cfg") and close DOS 6.22 with X (not shutdown), pcem is still open in the taskmanager (background process). Is it possible, to fix this problem?

Yeah... your CPU is weak. ^^ Sorry, but you need to have one of the best CPUs to emulate Pentium 233 MMX at full speed. :(

DOSBox vs. PCem – What plays DOS games better/more accurate?

I know it's hard to compare those two emulators, because DOSBox doesn't require actual BIOSes and doesn't use cycle accurate CPU timings. But how good is the dos emulation on pcem right now? What's better/worse compared to DOSBox? What would you recommend?
