Re: [BUG] International keyboard layouts

Of course, PC / XT and AT use incompatible keyboards, but I think that machines with AT and PS/2 keyboard should behave all the same. I wonder if their keyboard controllers of the AT + machines which aren't working don't have standard output and/or their BIOS performs additional processing or are se...

Re: [BUG] International keyboard layouts

On 8088/8086 machines loading keyb with /E parameter to force enhanced keyboard fixes most problems except:
- Alt-GR & key #45 still missing or not working.
- Left arrows become backspace.
- Numeric '/' types '-'
- Maybe something else, I tested character keys only.

Re: [BUG] International keyboard layouts

Windows ME has the same problems under VirtualBox 6.0.8 while Windows 95 OSR 2.5 and Windows 98 SE are fine.
I'm guessing that WME does the same on real computers, after all MS was ditching DOS support with Windows ME

I guess you're using MSYS2 MinGW 32-bit. The console shows MINGW32 after your username, like: user@domain MINGW32 ~/PCemv15/src

You can't compile PCem from MSYS2 MSYS.

try to use make clean before compiling again

Re: [BUG] International keyboard layouts

I was doing some research, it seems that one of the international keys has the same scancode as a different US key :? so I think PCem may have to use different scancodes according to the OS locale, at least under Windows. Then if I'm correct this isn't a PCem bug but a feature not yet implemented. T...

[BUG] International keyboard layouts

There's something wrong with international keyboard layouts: incorrect, missing and duplicated keys. Recent 'keyboard_at.c' changes could have caused additional troubles ( https://pcem-emulator.co.uk/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3250#p12329 ) but the strange WME behaviour was present at least since v1...

OK, I seen the updates to 'keyboard_ac.c' so I did a few more tests, KEYB SP with a PS/2 keyboard works in MS-DOS 6.22, with a XT keyboard works too but with an AT keyboard does not work. The same applies for KEYB UK but on this case seems to be wrong only the key at the left of '1' which types the ...

For me MS-DOS 6.22 is wrong too:
The attachment 2506190035.png is no longer available
Edit: I compiled PCem five weeks ago, I will update it now and test again.
Edit 2: Only 'makefile.in' was changed since last update…
Edit 3: KEYB UK is not working 100% properly either.

No, it doesn't work correctly.

Re: Old Award 286 Hi/Lo 32 kbyte Bios

That's fine, WinHex is really useful to work with emulation related files, BIOS, disk images and so on.
I tried the 2suw001 BIOS on almost all available 286 machines without any success, perhaps it needs some feature present only on the original chipset :(

How did you combine both files?

Re: XT IDE not recognized

With "roms folder" do you mean one copy on each machine subfolder like c:\pcem\roms\ibmxt\ide_xt.bin and so on?
Try to copy it directly to roms subfolder like c:\pcem\roms\ide_xt.bin to make it available for all machines because it's compatible with many models.

It's interesting, I never tried non parity modules because my PCS386SX was upgraded when my Olivetti dealer was already making their own generic computers and they fitted 8x1MB Samsung parity SIMMs and really I don't know what it has before. Olivetti OEM modules could be made by Samsung too but I'd ...
