Re: Raspbian can't compile v15

I've compiled from the windows release's sources. I don't like sharing binaries and I recommend compiling it yourself (apart from that gcc version fumble... it's easy!!!)

Also i'm expecting the RPI4 to do 486DX40. Being VERY optimistic here... hopefully the VCVI's driver doesn't bottleneck as hard.

Jim Power broken

Apart from the problem that it's Jim Power, V15's dynarec seems to get a divide error on start. The interpreter works, though there's also a freeze issue, which probably could be a real issue. The freezing also happens in V14 and is less frequent on lower clock speed (i.e. 25mhz), but I don't have a...

I know. It worked pretty well for a while but the laptop eventually started locking up after logging in.
The behavior would be XP throwing a trap exception before the boot splash could even show up.

I know some bioses, as early as 486dx2s, can boot from usb.
The earliest BIOS USB booting i've seen were chipsets for Pentium 4 systems.... Are you sure you're not confusing with a floppy-based bootloader? USB wasn't a thing at all in the 486 era implied. CD booting wasn't yet a thing either.

Re: CD-ROM problem of PCem V15

The K6 is not the source of your missing CD-ROM problem and is unrelated to this thread. Taking an installed Win9x from one motherboard to another will bring up IDE issues which would require either removing/reinstalling all device drivers, or (sometimes easier) a full reinstall. Relatedly, I did no...

Real behavior. Win95 will actually throw protection errors on CPUs that fast! There's a patch for it, but generally it's easier to install Win98 (or better) instead.

Re: Die Hard Trilogy won't start up (DLL error)

My PSX emulator preference is Mednafen. It's also a very good Saturn emulator too. Both are for faithful accuracy reasons with no hi-res cruft to sidetrack like about everything else before it (pSX and SSF being exceptions, but those are closed source)

Re: Linux Users: Any good roms out there?

The stuttering has nothing to do with roms. Check your sound buffer length and execution percentage (it'll stutter when dropping below 100%). Emulating a PMMX233 would call for a 4GHz desktop i5 for example

Re: v15 compatibility & bug list (WIP)

Is it the gold version or Nitro Riders/Pack? The Glide renderer in that only seems to behave well with V1's with older drivers (and has led to a bug report incident before with a V2 which turned out to be real behavior)

Since the M II is quite literally a 6x86MX rebrand with better voltage/heat (according to all those CPU collection sites out there anyway), it was rather trivial to do this. It's mostly dupes of the higher 6x86MXs with that last CPUID bit changed to reflect "M II / IBM 6x86MX", done by trial and err...

Re: Raspbian can't compile v15

Unfortunately that's the latest choice I have through the Raspbian distro. I could try older GCCs at least probably as there's gcc 4.4-4.9 and 5 packages.


EDIT: Installing gcc-4.9 and editing src/makefile to point to that allowed it to successfully compile and run :shock:

Can you just drop this on top of v14?
Should be fine, but if you have any existing '430vx' configs using IDT or Cyrix processors, you'll have to readjust them all since AMD was added to the Socket 7 list.

If you've got a CD-ROM drive in the guest, you could probably make a folder with your stuff, use mkisofs with that folder via a batch file to refresh the ISO and mount that.
