Re: r328: OS/2 Warp 3 format error; CD access crashes PCem

Don't install quemm. or emm386 or anything else like it. try to keep the configuration as PLAIN and SIMPLE as possible. More like, the bug in PCem needs to be fixed. Again, I did I=B000-B7FF on real hardware all the time and never had these problems. Only in PCem does that cause problems. PCem's me...

Re: Bugfix patch: host mouse pointer behavior after fullscre

By all means, give it a try--I personally have only had the issues after using fullscreen, but what you describe sounds very much like something that this patch might fix.

Re: Bugfix patch: host mouse pointer behavior after fullscre

Apologies for the bump, but I'd like to know if anyone has applied this patch and had any sort of experience with it worth mentioning, for good or ill. I and a couple of other people I know have found it to be successful at clearing up the host mouse glitches that we've noticed occasionally during a...

Bugfix patch: host mouse pointer behavior after fullscreen

Attached is a patch for win.c which should fix several annoying glitches I've noticed that sometimes cause the host mouse pointer to disappear, freeze, or behave badly after switching into or out of fullscreen mode. The bugs only come up under certain circumstances and on certain host configurations...

Re: PCEm and Real MT-32

I'm sure I speak for many when I say that your "insanity" is one of the better things to come along in the emulation scene in many years, Tom. ;) You've single-handedly brought the current state of PC emulation up to something respectable. It's actually been quite something to observe the progress y...

Re: Dynamic recompiler

I don't have Linux set up at the moment and therefore can't actually put this to the test, but I know a lot of people who will be thrilled about this (even to the extent that they've been waiting on such a development to really dive in and start using PCem), so many thanks on their behalf. Excellent...

Re: Dynamic recompiler

I see. For what it's worth, I've greatly enjoyed having the setting there to mess about with, hack or no hack. I'd be sad to see it go, even if its value is more as a semi-novelty than an actual respectable feature. Thanks for the info.

Re: Dynamic recompiler

Understood. Speaking of which, if/when you ever turn your attention toward improving the cache emulation, would it be feasible to make it settable to actual values, instead of simply "a little/some/a lot", etc.? It's a relatively minor thing, but it is somewhat jarring in contrast to the highly accu...

Re: Dynamic recompiler

rflego, now that the bug has been fixed, are you getting a consistent 100% or a consistent 30% when you run the MMX 233 on the Windows desktop? If 100%, can you try a bunch of high-intensity games and applications to see if anything you do ever makes the execution dip below 100%? You do appear to ha...

Re: Request new compilation

Oh, I see. Not the kind of "random dialogs" I was envisioning, but you're in luck, as I once had the same issue you're having now and it's actually quite easy to fix. Here's what's going on: some versions of the gnu compiler appear to have a bug wherein when a pointer within a certain type of struct...

Re: Request new compilation

I actually tried to build the latest build, nerd73, using the kit you're talking about, and I ended up getting a build done successfully, but it had some really weird issues with the drop down menus (couldn't select the new MMX processors or 3DFX, they simply weren't there, along with some weird is...

Re: VHD support

In theory, you should be able to use a build with SA1988's NE2000 emulation patched in to do exactly what you describe with no major difficulty. I haven't waded into networking at all, but plenty of people here seem to have gotten it to work, which should be sufficient to set up any kind of file tra...

Re: Dynamic recompiler

Wow! You weren't kidding. Your execution speed for sound playback is dropping from about 1.0 to 0.15 MIPS, and recompiled speed correspondingly from 100 to 15 MIPS, just by your opening and closing of the config. I'm nowhere near familiar enough with the recompiler to know how to interpret that, but...

Re: Question about the audio

I totally agree, Tom. Actually, I consider the audio stuttering upon slowdown to be a feature, not a bug. I strongly value accuracy and authenticity, so I like to avoid running below 100% whenever possible. It's very convenient to have an unmistakable cue to alert me to the fact that that's happenin...
