Re: Windows XP with PCem

Yep there's a lot of post-2001 3D going on here Another thing to note about PCem and the Voodoo/Voodoo2 is that it's strictly a secondary video device, and those were generally dropped for support after 2000 especially due to how NT5 (2000/XP) handles them in DirectX, and how OpenGL is implemented …

Re: Windows XP with PCem

I’m trying to run ER the game by Legacy Interactive in 2005.. from what I’m finding it is 3D... I think? So PCem won’t work for this? Too new. That requires something of a Geforce2/4 at minimum. For PCem's best, you should be thinking more of the timeframe before 2001. I think I’m reading that’s 3D …

Re: Windows XP with PCem

The main factor in the resolution support is the emulated amount of VRAM - The Voodoo configurator dialog defaults framebuffer and texture memory to 2mb, so bump both to 4mb, switch it to Voodoo2 and tick SLI (which emulates two Voodoo2 cards that interleave their memory together to form …

Re: Windows XP with PCem

Windows XP will "work" but it won't allow higher resolutions than what's already emulated. Also you'd have to be running a powerful enough CPU if you expect to emulate a Voodoo2 SLI (which allows 1024x768 and is currently the highest res 3d you can do in it). Also Windows XP doesn't support hte …

Windows XP with PCem

I’m looking for the best configuration settings in PCem to be able to play what I’m guessing would have to be 3D games at the highest color/resolution capable under PCem. Also, is Vista able to work in PCem or is that too new of an OS? I’m not very knowledgeable/new to PC components history so I …

Re: Current Best Video Driver for PCem

You're not going to be playing any games at 1600x1200 in pcem unless you just want to be difficult to prove a point (2D games). Stick with 16bit for the desktop and 24bit or 32bit at lower resolutions for the games that need it (not many). It's hardware and driver. VirtualBox and Vmware provide …

Re: Current Best Video Driver for PCem

Just try pcem with any video card that's supported and install the video card drivers for it and see what resolutions you have. The generic drivers are usually used if there is no video card driver for the video card as is the case with vmware,virtualbox or a real pc. The generic drivers use VESA …

Re: Current Best Video Driver for PCem

You'll want to emulate the ATI Mach64 for that. Disregard all advice intended for Virtualbox/VMWare. What are the highest color/resolution combinations I’m able to achieve with this? Display Doctor allows for 1600x1200 with 32 bit color. Would I be able to use Display Doctor with Windows 98 SE in …

Re: Easy PCem Export/Import

PCem v13's OpenGL 3.0 backend supporting shaders means you don't have to use Reshade. Also you should use v14 instead, v13 is no longer current. Assuming your hard drive paths are already absolute in your config files you shouldn't have a problem copying the cfg file into the configs folder. Yes …

Re: Current Best Video Driver for PCem

What about using your emulated VGA drivers? In Virtualbox, you need a "generic" VGA driver for Virtualbox because their emulated video card has no drivers for Windows 98. In PCem you can choose a video card that has drivers for Windows 98 (i.e.: any S3 based video card) and installe that video card …

Current Best Video Driver for PCem

I’m using SciTech Display Doctor with VirtualBox in order to have 32 bit color along with higher resolution and am wondering if I should go this route with PCem as well or if there is a better option for a Windows 98 SE system? To get the highest supported color/resolution possible. Thank you very …

Re: Easy PCem Export/Import

That probably depends on the version you're using now, but you should be able to find the info either in PCem itself (in v11 for instance it's under 'Disc' > 'Configure hard discs') or in pcem.cfg somewhere in the options that start with "hdc_". I believe it’s v12. So once I locate the file …

Re: Easy PCem Export/Import

All you really need to do is to define a system in the newer PCem, and give it the same settings as your current one. There aren't that many configuration settings to copy (taking screenshots of them helps). Watch for the name of the HDD image file - you can just plug the same hard drive image into …

Easy PCem Export/Import

With V13 of PCem I see now allowing the use of ReShade (which version exactly?) I’m wanting to upgrade from my current version of PCem. I was in hopes there was some way I could easily/quickly just somehow export my Windows 98 system in my current version of PCem and import it into the newer version …

DVI to HDMI

I’m wanting to know what I need in order to connect this PC (http://imgur.com/HmHdVUn) to an HDMI display. I have this adapter- (https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00B2HP9T2?psc=1&ref=yo_pop_mb_yo_pop_mb_pd_t2#nav-search-keywords). Thank you so much in advance. Will this work? https://www.amazon.com/ …

Re: WinG

Thank you so much for explaining the history of it. It sounds as if it worked pretty well for its purpose at the time albeit short lived. I doubt there are many titles at all that used it since DirectX took over so soon afterwards. I agree with you now that I know it’s purpose/lifespan. Thanks …
