Re: Any discussion on Slot 1 P3 Emulation?

It shouldn't be that much more difficult to implement a rough model of P6 timing than it was for the K6. I simply haven't done it yet. Pentium III is more about the speed required to do it. I have no real expectation of ever getting a usable 450 MHz P6 emulation, let alone the 733 requested here. On...

I'll get round to it when I get round to it. Bumping will not achieve anything.

SSE2 is required. I honestly don't know if it would still work on WIndows XP - it might do!

It's not exactly encouraging is it?

Another option would be to host the repo here. I need to look into how to do that.

Oh wonderful. I'd missed that announcement. Initial reaction is that switching to Git is probably the least painful move, but I've not really had to give this much thought before now!

Worked on the Mystique a bit more, so here are some more screenshots. I have to admit I'm getting slightly fond of this weird stipply card, which is probably a sign of major illness or something.

Re: Adverts for emulated hardware

Going back to Commodore, here's a July 1993 advert for the 386SX machine I just added. This is pretty close to the end for them, I think only the CD32 launched between the time of this advert and Commodore going bust the following April. The 386SX machine is pretty obsolete by this point (hence the ...

I never had a GUS. Maybe it's because of this ad. I would read about all sorts of GUS-related issues in lots of readmes and etc... so no regrets. Same here, I had an SB16 and SB 2.0 back in the 90s. While I do now have a GUS, and in the right game it's excellent, I doubt I would have enjoyed the se...

Re: Make Multi-Threading Possible on Guest CPUs

No matter how many threads you create on the same subject, this remains and will always remain impossible. It's not me being mean, that's simply not how computers and emulation work.
