Windows 98SE on a 486? Jeez
It works reasonably well, my only qualm is 98 takes up at least 200 meg of disk space. If you don't have a bios that supports LBA, it isn't worth using. 8-)

Mouse problems in v15

I am emulating an Acer 386sx25n with dos 6.22 and have an issue with the mouse. One of my games is telling me I need a Microsoft compatible mouse to run. I have tried the Microsoft ps/2 and Microsoft Intellimouse options with no luck. Any ideas, or am I out of luck? Thanks.

Re: Adding cd support to dos 6.22

It worked, but on a 386 with 512k(?) memory as opposed to 640 on a 286. Possible memory constraints. Thanks.

PCem and Intel vs AMD processors

I am looking into replacing my laptop and was wondering if there was a difference in performance between Intel and AMD chips with PCem. I am partial to AMD but will consider Intel if they are faster, more reliable or perform better with PCem. What are your thoughts?

This is probably just my misunderstanding of the hardware. I have an atapi drive from an old laptop and am trying to use it with PCem. I use an atapi ide to usb adaptor to connect it to my laptop. I tried a pentium overdrive mmx 200 bios and looked for a boot from usb option but could not find one. ...

Re: Is it possible to remap keys in PCem?

There is no end key on the keyboard, the manufacturer left it off to save space. The right cursor key may be the end key. It's hard to read. If it is, would I need to press the fn key to activate? [edit} That's it. Nevermind, although it may be useful to remap keys.

Is it possible to remap keys in PCem?

I think I am in a unique situation. I can install PCem and run it on a notebook, but there is no end key. Thus when PCem is capturing the keyboard input, I cannot press "control end" to release and return to the host. I can borrow a suitable keyboard but it would be inconvenient to bring the noteboo...

I've been trying to configure PCem v15 on Fedora 30 and running into some issues. I keep getting stuttering sound when installing Windows 98 SE. I have tried several roms but have not found any satisfactory. Has anyone found a rom with good sound quality? Or is this an issue unique to Linux?

Re: No sound in V15

Okay, I deleted the machine and recreated it. The the sound is back, but stuttering. I think when a device is removed in the client, PCem does not reinstall. I'll try changing drivers and other roms to see if it fixes the stuttering.
