Re: Java Emulation

in PC Emulation
I didn't know about JavaOS, but I'll do you one better: at a certain point Sun (before they were required by Oracle) actually developed chips that could run Java JVM bytecode natively! ARM chips did the same, for example the J in "ARM926EJ-S" stands for Jazelle which was a special mode the chips …

Re: Old TCP/IP networking

in PC Emulation
But the key phrase there is "on the same network segment" i.e. a LAN. I'm talking about a WAN, where UDP packets will absolutely get dropped if you spam a bunch of them in quick succession. The same effect DOES happen on a LAN if you send a lot of multicast/broadcast packets, which is also something …

is speed even relevant tho? we have 1, 2.5, 5gb ethernet now. your encapsulating an ipx packet system designed for dos games on 10mbit on home lans running bnc with t connectors and loads of packet collision. I dont think it matters about speed of udp over tcp anymore knowing what the target was …

I think you might run into trouble using UDP. Even though IPX didn't guarantee reliable delivery (same as UDP), in practice it was fairly safe and a lot of games that used it assumed there would be no (or at least very little) packet loss. They also tended to "spam" lots of little packets very …

Re: DOSBox + Linux + CUE/BIN = FAIL

I agree . However, this is likely not the issue in this specific case, as if the cue file and bin/img file are in the same directory and the cue file gets read, but the bin/img file does not, the directory permissions are not the issue . The permissions of the bin/img file could be a problem, but …

Re: DOSBox + Linux + CUE/BIN = FAIL

Good to check just in case, but in this specific case, the error suggests that the cue file is being found and read, but the referenced img file isn't . In the limited tests that I have run, the mscdex error is not shown if the cue file is absent (not there or wrong path) or inaccessible ( …
