Re: Moderator violating Community Standards

in Milliways
You see, the better application is not just the faster one, to me it seems clear that one of the goals of PCEm was longevity . In order to achieve longevity in software, you cannot rely too much on hardware specific functionalities, because if for some reason hardware architecture drastically …

Re: Moderator violating Community Standards

in Milliways
From my personal experience, the moderation here is hard but very fair, I have experienced this in some occasions. They are fair and they generally give the chance to explain or justify your case. The moderators are much, muuuuch, much better than the MacRumors xenophobic moderators, for sure. I …

Re: QEMU MESA GL/Glide pass-through on Apple M1 macOS

I saw your post before, but I chose to wait until I was in a better position to give a proper comment (on my Mac instead of my phone). First, I want to congratulate you for achieving the results I was expecting for the M1 with regards to emulation of these games. These benchmarks & games running are …

Re: QEMU MESA GL/Glide pass-through on Apple M1 macOS

OpenGlide tends to have issues with fog, chromakey and transparency effects, but it is all we got for anything non-Windows for Glide wrapping. Yeah, I see that. When I am attempting to play FIFA 9x (98 RTWC and 99) on DOSBox-X with high level voodoo emulation (glide passthrough) this happens. …

Re: QEMU MESA GL/Glide pass-through on Apple M1 macOS

I'm bloody amazed at this progress. I knew the M1 would be heaven for emulation. These results are exactly what I was expecting for the current iteration of M1 - and soon @ WWDC next week we might see the next generation of M1 with 32GB RAM and more cores unlocked. New benchmarks will be required …

Re: IRC channel recommendations, and maybe a VOGONS IRC?

in Milliways
Well... There's still a need for a good IRC server. Freenode is not viable anymore either. Back in my days I was in two brazilian IRC servers, the major ones (BrasNET and BrasIRC) and sometimes around freenode, DALnet, and some other I can't remember right now. But that was 15-20 years ago.

Re: Bruninho's Virtual Machines (Windows, Linux, Mac)

Updated DOSBOX-X to the latest revision and I am still unable to play FIFA 98 RTWC/FIFA 99 with sound on. Whenever I want to play with sound, I get sound stuttering after the loading phase from previously selected match, and as soon as I get to the match kick-off the game just freezes while the …

Re: no more iMac Pro

in Milliways
You can still run old OS X through QEMU, so it's emulation. It is still lightning fast with a M1 Mac. 8GB is enough for very old OS emulation, 16GB is obviously better but not necessary. I don't care at all about Windows 7, 8 and 10, only about 3.11 and 98SE. XP is only useful if there is Glide …

Re: Bruninho's Virtual Machines (Windows, Linux, Mac)

Right, I'm slowly getting back into the business. I am trying to show up occasionally on #dosbox (irc.freenode.net) and #macgarden channels as a new habit, with both my older VMs (Win 98/mIRC and MacOS9/Ircle). Meanwhile, some light browsing with Browservice to help the developer improve its …

Re: Bruninho's Virtual Machines (Windows, Linux, Mac)

Not much news these days. UTM has released a new version to try out, and DOSBox-X is still improving. Meanwhile I am just tidying up a macOS 9.2.2 VM. I have set up a raspberry pi 3B to run two services: Browservice and Cameron Kaiser’s Crypto Ancienne. The first one provides “modern browsing” in a …
