What kind of system would be too slow for software midi? And how about software soundfonts?

I want to find this out because I was just having a discussion with someone about not being able to have winamp run in the background for mp3s on 486's, (they barely did it if it was the only program running) - and it got me to thinking "how low can you go with soundfonts and the microsoft sw synth? …

Re: Emulation speed issues with 86box

How can I enable it in pcem, there's no line for it in its' .cfg file? In the menu bar, you can choose Settings->Configure to find a checkbox right below the emulated CPU type (486). The line in the config file is "cpu_use_dynarec = 1". 86Box should have a similar setting (haven't used that since …

Re: Emulation speed issues with 86box

I can exceed a pentium 90 with dynamic recompiler - why was it turned off to start with? To be honest, I'm not 100% certain. But I think it has to do with compatibility/stability. Same reason why DOSBox has an auto core setting, I guess. In an older PCem I tested, the dynarec did not work …

Re: Emulation speed issues with 86box

I'm trying to run dos doom (it's a long story why, want to see how old mods run on older hardware) and the highest emulated cpu I can get running at 100% if about a 486dx25, on an i7-870 (stock 2.93ghz). Um, that's odd. Became single-core performance of current x86 generations that poor ? :?: I ran …

Re: Emulation speed issues with 86box

It really depends on the host due to the current dynarec, I mean, if you want a perfect 100% speed in the Pentium MMX at 200Mhz, you need that 4.2GHz machine. Changing that setting to 1 makes it run flawlessly. If I overclock my i7-870 to 3.9ghz should I expect to be able to run, say, a pentium 75 …

Emulation speed issues with 86box

I'm trying to run dos doom (it's a long story why, want to see how old mods run on older hardware) and the highest emulated cpu I can get running at 100% if about a 486dx25, on an i7-870 (stock 2.93ghz). On my i5 4690k at 4.2ghz overclocked cpu's all the way up to a pentium 200mmx run flawlessly at …
