Re: [BUG] International keyboard layouts

I can only confirm your findings (at least about ami 386 and xi8088)

It's clear that the keyboard emulation that was added on that commit that we identified, is making these systems use an incorrect key mapping.

Re: [Feb 2018 ed.] PCem MSYS2 build guide (with wxWidgets)

Official pcem is not compiled with MSYS2. it is compiled with the other mingw and not using the exact same versions of the dependencies.
You need to use the dlls that are in msys2.

@omarsis81: more information is needed to know what are you doing wrong. Given that not even hg worked for you, maybe we should first verify that the environment is correctly installed.

Re: PCem crashes when running AWEUTIL /EM

Mmm. I am currently testing this and, while it does report an error ( ERR014: Feedback path error), it does not crash.

I haven't worked on the emulation for some time, so I cannot say if I could fix it, but I might look at what it does to report that error.
My version is AWEUTIL 1.32

But if you have, the problem that you report on v12 only happens with Direct3D. Switch to OpenGL and you'll no longer have that problem

PCEm does honor the default device, but only at startup time. Currently it does not react to changing the default output.

Re: "Disk I/O Error" when switching machines

What might happen is that either the bock size configuration when adding the disk to PCem, or the BIOS detected parameters do not match with those used when the disk was created.
Please, check the values in the PCem disk setup from the working machine and replicate those to the other machines.
