Re: Windows 98SE Freezes on Attempting to Reboot

I'll have a look. As a workaround, try disabling power management in the bios.

Re: Question about lower level hardware emulation

They're pretty much all ignored.

The _sole_ exception is on 386DX systems using the OPTi495 chipset (AMI 386DX clone and MR 386DX clone), where the external cache control will alter memory speed when 'Waitstates' in the PCem configuration is set to 'System default'.

What model / motherboard are you emulating for that setup?

Re: dos program like prime95 to stress emulated CPU ?

Interpreter only implements up to 486 instruction timings, hence a K6 with the internal cache turned off will be performing roughly like a 486 at that clock speed.

Re: [Patch] Voodoo 3 WinUAE merge notes/patch

Also new combine modes (particularly for multitexture), general purpose scan-time buffer accumulation ('T-buffer'), rotated grid sampling for antialiasing...

It's the biggest set of architectural changes in the Voodoo line.

Re: dos program like prime95 to stress emulated CPU ?

Turning off 'internal cache' is a proxy for disabling the dynamic recompiler. PCem doesn't have any cache emulation.

No, that's expected. The fastest CPUs are there for completionists at the moment, they aren't really usable on current hardware.

Future sound card musings

Similar to the graphics card thread, here's some notes on possible future sound card emulations. As with that thread, nothing here should be taken as a statement of intent, I'm mostly just jotting down a few thoughts. This obviously does not cover every possible sound card, just the ones I'm most li...

Tested on a Shuttle HOT 557 with a Phoenix S3 Trio 64, Pentium 75 CPU, standard IDE drive emulation, it seems that some disk emulation routines generate errors when a lot of files are transferred.
Transferred from and to what?

Re: Combining Voodoo 3 + Voodoo 2 SLI

This won't work, you can't "combine" Voodoo cards in this way. There were switcher utilities to aid in having both V2 and V3/Banshee in the same system, but this was to switch between games running entirely on one or the other.

Soft power is only currently implemented on machines implementing ACPI. To date that's the GA686BX (using PIIX4) and VA503+ (using the VIA equivalent).
