Just created this thread to help people getting UniPCemu up and running. Reply with any questions you may have.
The very basics:
- Most settings can be easily adjusted through the settings menu(all when the yellow startup text displays itself(clickable). After it disappears, the used BIOS is loaded, hard disks mounted and hardware settings are locked down(much in the same way you can't switch out hard disks or hardware in ISA/PCI slots while the system is up and running).
- The locked down settings in the settings menu can viewed in the settings menu, but choosing them isn't allowed(due to said locking down of the setting), returning to the originating menu's top item as the focused item(having a > in front of it with the active font/border color on the text).
There are a few settings which can only be changed by manually opening the settings file(mostly TCP server settings). Other connection settings can be changed normally as documented by the Hayes modem's commands. They should also be able to work with software supporting Hayes modem commands to set it up(e.g. Telemate or the like to run AT&Sx=n to set the phonebook and quick dial number x(0-9 range only) to value n). All phone dialing numbers support 3 kinds of dialing:
- 12-digit IP address( :[port] can be added). This is a normal x.x.x.x IP address to use.
- Normal hostname(with optional :[port]).
- Single digit for dialing the phone book.
The phone book dialing option can be used both as ATDn, ATDTn, ATDPn and ATDSn. Provided it's a single digit.
The BIOS settings can be programmed by following the following steps:
1. Setup the floppy disk and hard disk as required, using the steps described in the UniPCemu manual(wiki).
2. Either boot the Compaq Deskpro 386 system after normally formatting the hard disk and installing MS-DOS on it, or use a floppy disk image.
3. Use the Compaq Deskpro 386 diagnostic/setup disks to configure the BIOS, or use a plain MS-DOS boot floppy with gsetup on it(you can grab one, then use e.g. WinImage to put gsetup on the disk) to configure the BIOS in a more simple way. By default, disks with more than 40 tracks won't work with booting from the Compaq BIOS(it only recognises 40 tracks, requiring being setup for 720K drives to recognise 80 track drives properly).
One normal(non-server) settings can only be modified by manually opening the settings.ini file(all others can be modified using the settings menu):
- listenport: The port the server listens on for it's serial modem and dial-up server.
