Re: Is PCEm the only emulator of its kind?

But all of those have one difference to 90s PC: They don't have a million and a half hardware combos, made by dozens of different companies, almost all of which had dubious adherence to spec. Hope not to go too off-topic: well, actually if you have a look at the most recent Winuae, you'll see that ...

Re: "Unable to control A20 line" or "A20 Line already enable

Just confirming that this is a regression compared to PCem v10.1 on the same system, where A20 seems to be handled correctly. EDIT: Okay, this is getting weird. I was finally able to get HIMEM.sys working on PCem v11, but only on a certain BIOS in a certain very specific setup. Specifically, if I u...

Re: Is PCEm the only emulator of its kind?

DOSBox is easier to get into. WinUAE and Amiga Forever will get you up and running with Commodore nostalgia in less than a day, depending on how quick your download purchase goes. PCSXII and your LAN connection to your PS2 will probably have you running same-day as well. But all of those have one di...

Re: Can any of these controls work on Voodoo 2.

It's just because I don't have a real computer with a voodoo 2 card nor a emulator that has Voodoo2. Because I never tried them out yet because I didn't have these hardware with me at the time. It's just that I never experienced using a voodoo 2 on a Windows 95. So you're insisting it works, despit...

Re: Can any of these controls work on Voodoo 2.

Then why don't you try then and see for your self. It is not their job to prove your assertion. You've not so much as posted a video or even (that I've seen) a picture showing this supposed config working, and given that cell phones are almost ubiquitous, I find it hard to believe you couldn't.

it doesn't mean it isn't emulated.

Re: Trident graphics (from downlods); display messed up

You should use a more modern video card to pair with a voodoo, like one of those PCI S3 Trio cards or ViRGEs. (Trio is a bit more compatible since some games will default to Virge's bad 3D first, missing out on 3dfx initialization) FYI: S3 Trio is purely 2D (like everything else on the list), S3 Vi...

Re: Trident graphics (from downlods); display messed up

I'm currently running 3DFX with a Paradise Bahamas. So basically, I should make sure I have a 2D VGA card installed, and a 3DFX Voodoo? Is the Paradise Bahamas 2D, or 3D? Not sure how pressing the need is, but maybe a quick setup guide might help people? Particularly people who don't particularly re...

Re: 3DFX emulation

Ok, I've written shaders before, but I dunno how hard this would be - I understand the 3DFX is software-emulated? How hard would it be to emulate it in shaders? There's some effort to write a filter shader, it looks like. Edit: Er, I'm not offering; sorry if any mis-understanding. I'm up to my eyeba...

Re: Trident graphics (from downlods); display messed up

Ok, I think I got this. Install Win98SE with a video card for SVGA, and select 3dfx Voodoo in the config. That'll make it available to games which use it? And it's rather sad that GoG's version of Interstate '76 doesn't work with Windows 98. I suppose there's economic sense in just maintaining the v...

Re: Setting up PCem for the first time - CD drive?

CD-ROM is configured through the Settings->CD-ROM submenu. If you want to boot off CD then you'll also need to emulate a machine that supports that - I think only the 'Award 430VX PCI' does that. You'll also want a video card better than a Hercules. Drive G: (the daemon tools drive) is selected in ...

Ok, so I want to install Windows 98 in PCem.

I'm a complete newbie at PCem (although not to emulation in general). What do I set so it'll det...
