Re: Audio Lag with PCem 11 (was able to repro in latest source)

I have just checked doom with 627 and i did run on p75, if there is any lag now, i cant really notice, it is way better.
Everybody, lets check, you will see , i think the lag on doom is gone.
BTW to anyone, do you mind to tell me which line in which file is responsible for sound buffer length?

Re: Early win 95 game in high res EXTREMELY slow

i run it on mmx300 , much better and smother but bit slower as PCem did 65%, on p166mmx i have same speed as on this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rc_4XY6Y7vM but of course not so many FPS. Game requires minimum p60 and i run it on p100 and on standard settings it run flawlessly, so p60 migh...

Re: Early win 95 game in high res EXTREMELY slow

I got it , thanks. The full version is only 80megs, rest from cd thats audio tracks. Full version allow me to run High resolution, i was wrong assuming it wil have 800x600 resolution, it is 640x480 but it uses high resolution textures. On max detail, and so on , using p166mmx PCem , even on my shity...

Re: Early win 95 game in high res EXTREMELY slow

I installed the shareware version of the game, and for some reason it wont allow me to check High resolution in menu. Maybe thats the shareware limit, game is nearly 500mb and my PAYG transfer from phone is gone, so i cant get full version. could you check the SW version and can you set high resolut...

Re: FPS to 50% in Win98

Glad to hear that, MASH, but it is not really a problem, it is PCem design and it should be like that. In the future , maybe graphics cards could be emulated on second thread, that would also bring up performance but only while using primary display, would help if riva TNT will be emulated or some o...

Re: FPS to 50% in Win98

Mash, Your host CPU have 2 threads to use, PCem using only 1 thread so u got 50% of cpu usage, when you run anything on voodoo u will get up to 100% . My i5 2140m works on turbo 2.7 non stop, when i do test on win98 p120mmx running quake 2 time demo 640x480 with voodoo, PCem performance is about 100...

Re: Audio Lag with PCem 11 (was able to repro in latest source)

Your Guesstimate is almost ok. but my gues is about 0.3 sec on p75, but yes there is small lag on doom. But remember one thing, You can not compare PCem to dosbox , by any means, Dosbox barely emulates any hardware, and when it does it makes shortcuts by simulating some behaviour, it was designed to...

i also have not seen any problems with stealth 3D, You said that you got that mono option in bios settings on, and your bios just does not seems to Save the changes, You said that. I think something might be wrong with your bios settings or file or something. dont know, really.

Re: To start using 3dfx.

To Arkl1e, Omarsis81 is right, sound sluttering is only happend if your cpu can not emulate 100%, you have i5-4570 @ 3.20GHz so p166mmx should hopefully work fine and always at 100%. I m using Diamond stealth 3D 2000 as of yesterday and it does not cause me any problems. I m not an expert at all, bu...

If your display adapter is , "standard VGA" or "VGA display adapter" or similar , that is the problem, win95 have no drivers for virge dX,...
