Re: i7-3540M or i7-3632QM better for PCem performance?

PCem performance as far as I know is single threaded, so you'd be better served with stronger single core performance. They're both from the same generation so the 2 core might be the better bet for squeezing more out of it, but the difference might even be negligible. I don't know much about the i7...

Re: Thank You SarahWalker for PCem

I've appreciated PCem as the simple solution to a Dosbox alternative that would actually work properly with a number of things. I've always had a harder time trying to set up similar programs and came out with limited success. Here though, it seems things are a little more streamlined and the only t...

Re: PCem USB support

Yeah, but I would at least be interested in emulated USB as far as removable mass storage devices go, since that would end up being a simpler way (for me) to rapidly add or remove files from the system than I already use and probably gives me more flexibility while I'm at it.

Re: PCem infrared emulation

Something with absolutely no real use is going to be minimal priority over something that would actually do something or...

Re: Future graphics card emulation

Frankly the only graphics emulation I care about is getting enough distinct cards with different standards to provide complete compatibility for hardware-3D games. That's the spot where modern systems struggle to run programs the most. I always consider the goal of these kinds of emulation projects ...

Re: Any possibilities of emulating voodoo 5 ?

I'm fairly certain games that were available from the time the Voodoo 5 came about are playable on modern systems in other ways that don't require emulating an entire machine. There might be a few edge cases, of course, but for the most part it seems like you don't really need full-on machine emulat...

It only has to do with 3DFX. It's not going to change anything that isn't related to rendering 3D through a 3DFX card. Dithering and scanlines are also not the same thing.

I'm running the game in a 486/66 under DOS 6.22 and the mouse is perfect.
If the problem is because is running under Windows, I bet it is real behavior
I tried it in Dosbox and it works fine there.
I don't understand why this happens in Windows 98.

Re: DOS games testing list

Have you already tried manually selecting the options according to PCem's configuration, if the game even has manual configuration? Not that I'd expect this to be the problem, but sometimes autodetection is wrong for one reason or another.

And either way, programming isn't a limitlessly transferable skillset. Programming by itself offers nothing, you need to know what you're intending to do in detail, you need to know the relevant language(s), etc.

I think the divide overflow thing is usually caused by running a game on a cpu that's too fast.

I don't know why it would be doing it on the pentium overdrive, since that's nowhere near...

Merely selecting an option in PCem isn't enough. More than that, you need a DOS mouse driver active to use a mouse in plain DOS like that.
