Re: CUE sheet troubles :/

It wouldn't. Compressed audio brings other problems like slow seeking, loss of quality, incorrect tracks lengths... Not with FLAC. It's lossless and bit-perfect. Seeking might be a bit slower than uncompressed WAV, but still orders of magnitude faster than a CD-ROM drive. This is why the CHD format …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

mt32emuqt is stand-alone munt. Is that different from regular Munt? We use the term "stand-alone munt" to refer to running mt32emuqt or mt32emualsadrv or mt32emuwin32drv and then configuring dosbox to output to that through a MIDI port. "Built-in munt" on the other hand refers to using a patched …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

If you're on a very slow CPU (I'm thinking of like 2GHz CPUs fron the 2000's), then stand-alone Munt is better, yes. Just for reference, I use mt32emuqt with a debian varient on a Raspberry Pi, and it's absolutely no problem on a RPi3 or above. I think they say the CPU is equivalent to a 2GHz …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

I remember munt being cpu heavy making it being a separate process a good thing. Has it become efficient enough to live in the same process with little impact or added as a separate thread? Games that actually support MT-32 are old enough as to not place any serious demand on cycle count. So unless …

Re: Welcome to the updated VOGONS

Well, there isn't in Linux with KDE. Also, if you don't have a font that supports the emojis, all you see is boxes. Forums usually have a fixed set of common emoticons (not emojis, just emoticon images that work everywhere) that people can add easily. Then if people want more than that, they can use …

Re: Tutorial: dosbox with Glide under Linux

There's a bug in this patch. In src/hardware/voodoo_interface.cpp, this: RENDER_SetSize(v->fbi.width, v->fbi.height, 16, vdraw.vfreq, 4.0/3.0, false, false); should be: RENDER_SetSize(v->fbi.width, v->fbi.height, 16, 1000.0f / vdraw.vfreq, 4.0/3.0, false, false); RENDER_SetSize() takes FPS as …

Re: Fix for memory allocation check

Not sure about which C++ version this is for. It might be for a relative new one. No, it worked like that since the beginning. This is the C++ standard document from 2005 for example: http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/papers/2005/n1905.pdf cppreference.com also always marks things as "C++ …

Re: Tutorial: dosbox with Glide under Linux

Next, we need to resolve the OpenGL includes inconsistency between MinGW and Linux. I am using Ubuntu. If you are on different distro, you got to figure it out yourself to locate the system gl.h. $ cd ~/src/dosbox-3858 $ mkdir -p ./include/GL $ cp -vf /usr/include/GL/gl.h ./include/GL/ Ok, now we …

Fix for memory allocation check

MEMORY::MEMORY(Section*) has a bug where it uses the throwing 'new' but then checks for null, which will actually never detect an allocation failure because an exception will be thrown. The attached patch fixes it.

Re: HDD image geometry detection bug

Right. I was hoping there could be some safe autodetection for this so that when running dosbox in Retroarch the user can just select an image to mount in the GUI. It's not possible to specify a geometry by hand there, you just select the image file. I guess I could kludge this by having the user …

Re: HDD image geometry detection bug

Hm. So for existing images that were not created that way, what problems would arise if dosbox used the head count from the BPB without having to verify it with -size? In other words, what if the sanity check would check if the BPB head count results in a cylinder count that works out fine compared …

Re: HDD image geometry detection bug

I'm not sure what the auto-detection you describe in PCem amounts to Oops, it's just file size based. It says so right on the label: https://i.imgur.com/xeqWoB9.png bximage itself tells me that the CHS of the image it creates is: CHS=20/16/63. So I guess that's either a bug, or it's expected that …
