Re: IBM XT - How to set up hard drive

Thanks.

I read that the error I had was in relation to the MFM controller which PCem doesn't emulate yet. Is this true?

IBM XT - How to set up hard drive

Hi, I am trying to set up a hard drive for my IBM XT machine so I can install PC-DOS 2.0 + Windows 1.01 on it, but seem to be getting the "No fixed disks present" message when I run FDISK. Someone on VOGONS suggested getting a copy of ide_xt.bin and ide_xtp.bin, so I downloaded a copy at https://cod...

Re: Can we have an OS X port, please?

Actually, my problem was that I didn't add any ROMs yet for any system and it works now. Strange that PCem crashed instead of it giving the usual "no roms detected, exiting" message. I guess I can join the community proper.

Re: Can we have an OS X port, please?

I'm afraid that I couldn't get it to work with Wine. I'm still having the same problem this person is having; it crashes immediately upon startup, and the logs show that this is a page fault. I even tried different engines.

Can we have an OS X port, please?

I have a Mac 2012 system running OS X 10.10, and I read about PCEm on another forum. I decided to download it, but out of all the versions on offer (Win and Linux), I decided to use PCEm on Parallels Desktop 10 and have no problems with it except one . With this, I was able to run DOS 5.0 but becaus...

Re: SHIFT keys don't work properly

Doesn't Wine exist for OS X? If yes, get it and try running PCem under it. Edit: It does: http://wiki.winehq.org/MacOSX . PCem works fine under wine as I tried on Linux. I use Wineskin which is basically Wine for OS X, and I am having no such luck so far. No matter what engine I use, the emulator c...

Re: SHIFT keys don't work properly

- Katakis: That is caused by slowdown too. If it runs slowly enough, it will occasionally just not respond to some keys. It's an even bigger problem for me because I type very fast and in PCem in some circumstances, I need to slow down otherwise it fails to pick up some of the keys or some of the k...

Re: SHIFT keys don't work properly

- Katakis: The reason is simple. Slowdown due to Parallells which means PCem itself is being run under virtualization, and then of course PCem itself also being slow, and it all together results in repeating keys. Repeating keys? No, I mean if I try to change to the B: drive for example, I would ge...

I forgot to mention that the SHIFT keys work normally outside PCem. It's only PCem that's affected.

SHIFT keys don't work properly

Hi, I have just discovered this wonderful program and I am always looking forward to the next release. I am using PCem v9 under Parallels Desktop (I own a Mac, and there still isn't an OS X version of this emulator). I have set up a machine which imitates my first 486, that had MS-DOS 5 and Windows ...
