It is OpenGL for UT2003. Where have you been in the last 2 years?
I never saw this thread, i could overlook it, but maybe it was even mentioned in this thread, it would be nice link al related threads and post in 1st post, they really are in couple of other topic.. That is part which i really dont understand, you are doing promotion this way, but in otherhand you dont want to promote it by releasing complete builds, to make it much easier to use.. to get much more users / fame / attention.
I don't have a great desktop CPU to show off the better part of PCem. I halted desktop upgrade indefinitely. My best CPU is on thin & light laptop, the Ryzen 2500U, but PCem is hopeless on any mobile CPU
Im not using laptops, simply because of headaches from their noise, unless they are fanless as your 15W Ryzen could be.. but after that they were usually quite slow, especially at GPU side.. and when i really work, i need lots of windows and monitors real estate, so when i using laptops, i have it on stand and 2 external monitors beside, external mouse and keyboard, so its desktop like regardless, only noisier and transportable. During travelling, when i get free plug in train or on business trip in hotel (but again typically connected to TV screen because simply bending in front of a laptop without some stand is far from ergonomic), it make sense, but other in all other circumstances, handheld style gaming device is better and at hotel could be often connected to TV too.
I dont thing that Ryzen 2500U is something too much slow, if Geekbench score is not lying, its ~ half of not so old Core i7 7700K performance, at least for the while in turbo, before throttling etc.
I dont thing that people are shy to post PCem numbers, i thing that they dont need to, because you can simply google, results of real HW which is emulated, on old site. If is not emulated at full speed, it make no sense to emulated such HW and you need to emulate something slower, which you can run at full speed. Its like resolution and details in games.
Regardless, i would like to see comparison of these on same HW.. i dont mind if PCem framerate would be 5 FPS, unplayable etc, this is reality. I even would make such benchmark, if would have working build of both.. I added some virtualization results to my Dos Fast CPU + GPU benchmarking thread (sheet), there is even some Qemu, but because of Qemu bug, i never was able to run 640x480 or higher resolution: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1QPf4V … t#gid=919349920
Im not telling that PCem has not bugs, for example its loading Q2Dos for minute or two, there has to be something wrong with disk subsystem, i did some benchmarking and i got realy strange results, maybe it is fixed in new version, maybe not.. I have to check their forum.
Perhaps I was so wrong and those games are indeed playable with Core i9 9900K, all one needs is 30fps, anything more is superficial.
30 FPS means playable, what is big thing, yeah its console quality, its Doom quality (35FPS lock).. i dont mind more, that is why i have nice 144 Hz monitor, but i also like sit and play and not sit and trying to make game whole setup running for very long time.
I think we are there now, it is no longer just a dream with QEMU, and only with QEMU for now
Maybe, or probably, but how many people can enjoy it? People have problems to build it, its not unstreamed in QEMU, there is lots of quite stranger and more alien thing, unstreamed for while. When late its not easy to setup it right for Glide.. and if im not wrong anything with OpenGL is not public.. So you are there, we are not, few of us is there maybe with Glide. BTW made someone here some compatibility matrix, what is working and what is not?
I dont thing that you need to make lots ofvideos yourself, you only need to make package easily to use to users, i sure that somebody will make some video and compatibility list.
I dont thing that idea of virtualization of Win98 machine, is not welcome - its not Amiga overpriced HW old problem or some you have to use real HW etc.. Such people would ignore these thread, whole virtualization stuff, Dosbox etc.
I would say that is communication problem, simple to use things are usually successful and vice versa.. and they could be very complex inside, which should remain for most of users blackbox.
Geforce 6 line still has official Windows 98 support, with physical Win98 you get up to X79 board with still good enough for new games 6 six core + HT Core i7 for gaming and native PCI sound card, which is working in Dual boot in Dos / Win98.. if dont need Dos Sound you can get even higher, i dunno where is the limit, even Z170,Z370 is able to run Win98 fine... I have whole thread about it:
X58/i865/V880 - Yamaha7x4/AureaV1/2 pure Dos7.1- compatibility list/research/ ultim. drivers configs, WIP- gurus needed
and there are clever people which would be probably able to make some bridge to make Dos sound working with every MB with PCI slot..
PCie-to PCI, PCI to ISA, # of slots multipliers - bridges, risers, backplanes, research, especially for DOS, WIP.
As your pushing on SW side, they are pushing on HW side. SW site has to ultimately Win, but we are not there yet, because of bugs and missing features.. Virtualbox and Vmware, had not 3D support in Dos / Win9x and good Dos sound.. and already wrote lots about Qemu and linked and reported couple of annoying Dos bugs and 3D is very hard to get working and PCem is slow - but still the best.
Im old goal oriented goatman, i care about facts and freedom, not about egos+prejudices. Hoarding=sickness. If you want respect, gain it by your behavior. I hate stupid SW limits, SW=virtual world, everything should be possible if you have enough raw HW.
