Re: CDROM on older machines

Ah, I thought PCEM must be injecting something since as you say the BIOS on those machines can't see anything. First, I'm not sure what you call "older machines" all PCem machines are more than 20 years old... By default, PCem assigns D: to the CDROM... but that can be easily configured in the menu...

Re: v13.1 released!

I'm liking this release. There's compatibility issues, but so far only with games that had issues in the first place.

Gamin' like it's 1998! :D

Gonna see if my brother can find his Warcraft II CD and case.

Re: 3DFX compatibility list

Homeworld 1 appears to play flawlessly, as far as graphics and glitches go. However: * The in-game menus drop down to single-digit FPS. * A Pentum MMX166 appears to be on the low end for playing it - My CPU couldn't run the emulated MMX233 faster than 60-70% during gameplay, and lagged near the end ...

Re: Interstate '76 - Missing triangles

More info: * The colours can be funky on startup. Changing the resolution works, as does changing it back. 1024x768 always has colour problems. This may be a palatalization of 16 bit to 8 colours. * The first time I76.exe is run, an exception is returned. Any runs after that will start and work corr...

Re: Interstate '76 - Missing triangles

Which renderer are you using? If Direct3D or Glide, what driver version and DirectX are you using? If Voodoo2, Did you limit 2MB memory in Glide? If it's I76's terrible terrain pop-in and occasional road poly Z-fighting you're referring to: that's a real thing. Software. No, it's not that. I'm well...

Re: Status of Assembly?

I like the general idea of WebASM, but think it's too tied to the ideas and needs of webpages. If there was some sort of generic, retargetable ASM that could be optimized per-platform that was aimed at speed first... But I don't know enough about ASM to say how feasible it is. Certainly, it would be...

Interstate '76 - Missing triangles

The bug: Playing I76 for a few minutes results in missing and mis-placed triangles. This is carried over from previous versions of PCem. The config: gameblaster = 0 gus = 0 ssi2001 = 0 voodoo = 1 model = 430vx cpu_manufacturer = 0 cpu = 9 cpu_use_dynarec = 1 cpu_waitstates = 0 gfxcard = px_trio64 vi...

Guide to getting networking working?

It's been a long time since the 90s. Also, Win98 SE doesn't detect any network card, and I don't know how to fix it. I selected "Novell NE2000" in the configuration. No driver I try works.

I am on GCC 4.7.2, so is there any way to tell which libraries I have which might be causing this? I'm on Windows 10, and have a habit of doing things like installing the June 2010 DirectX 9 SDK and user redist so I can play old games. :)

PCem is a simulator as well as an emulator; where an emulator just tries to emulate outward behaviour, a simulator tries to model exactly what happens in whatever you're simulating.
