Re: Award 430VX BIOS converted to Award BootBlock BIOS

Thanks for that, leilei. It now works.

I have no idea why flash.bin was created in the first place.

Award 430VX BIOS converted to Award BootBlock BIOS

So, I am trying to play a game using a specific configuration (430VX, P120, 16MB) which I had no problems with for days. But then, the game locked up because the Award 430VX BIOS got changed to the Award BootBlock BIOS. Now I don't know anything about this BIOS, but it has given me nothing but troub...

Why not just open the image file, drag the folder in there, and save it. Works for me.

Re: v13 feature freeze end of Friday 13th October

Can anyone tell me what feature freeze exactly means? I always assumed that Sarah wouldn't add any new features/bugs start of October, but it seems that this is not the case.

V13 freeze on Friday the 13th, which also happens to be in October.


Great, perhaps PCem can have codenames which Sarah can put in the title bar to make sure we don't forget. I was going to put some examples here, but I am not creative enough?

The more features the emulation has over v12, the better...

...and the more crippling my disk space will be.

Re: v12 released!

i remember that Tom was in charge of PCem before v10 (?) before you took over. Did he feel that you had more knowledge of PCs than him, or what? I saw him developing an Acorn Archimedes emulator which I already downloaded, but never got to try it out myself.

Probably something you been working on we don't know?


Sarah admitted that she did SCSI emulation for a different project, and maybe implementing this in PCem is the surprise.

Re: PCem build guide

Thanks, but the last of the instructions, where you type $ make -f Makefile.mingw doesn't work. Does the command only apply to Linux, or does dreamer mean cmake -f?

If so, it says it is expecting a directory, not a file.

Re: v12 released!

Are there any plans to release a stable version of PCem every three months instead of yearly? It would be useful for those of us who have trouble compiling the development builds. I can't find a file I need since every web site that points to it are dead.

You're right, what goes on between you and Battler is none of my business.

So a while back, you may have seen my thread asking why there was no port of PCem for OS X. Someone suggested that I should run it through Wine. I am using Wine to run emulators like VICE, EightyOne, WinUAE, and PCem; and all of them run under Wine very well. So, you might be thinking "But Kata...

Re: PCem v12 and Sound Lag

In src/ibm.h, there is a line that reads "#define SOUNDBUFLEN 48000/20". The first number indicates the bit rate, while the second is the number of milliseconds that pass before the sound is played.

Try reducing the second number down to 10 or 15, then compile again. See if this works.
