Re: [Bug] Show desktop in Windows 10 crashes the emulator

Mr. Gen_angry, honestely i dont understand why people think performance on d3d could be faster?, it is only display inteface , it plays a role as a virtual monitor, it does not use any 3d or other complex instructions it only displays static image. as far as i remember ddraw was always much faster i...

That is Hard Drive indicator, it is implemented only if using Direct Draw display, if you switch display to Direct3D then it will disappear. it is very usefull, when it does blink means that emulated HD is writing or reading data. some people dont like it, i think it is absolutely necessary to know ...

You dont really need to download any Patches and service packs for win95 to be working correctly, and if you install 95/osr2 then you have pretty much everything you need.

Re: Can we make PCem much faster?

basically there is no problem, just Wonder why it does slow down. is it b cos emulating software cant manage? or game engine is badly written? maybe there is some strange loop? Wonder , does it do same in real hardware? on real p200 with voodoo?
But generally there is no problem, game runs fine.
