Re: Getting UniPCemu up and running

in PC Emulation
Hi again! Here's some results from Tilck testing (with Bochs BIOS). UniPCemu actually manages to boot this a little bit further than PCem/86Box, but ultimately the boot sequence ends up in a kernel panic, with an error message adorned with #TS and #GP . That the #TS exception is there means it's …

Re: QEMU 3Dfx Glide Pass-Through

in PC Emulation
Nope I don't think I've encountered that particular one. But if you're using vmware-svga, then you do need to install a virtual USB mouse. (nusb36e.exe from vogonsdrivers, and the switches "-usb -device usb-mouse" for qemu) Also note, the SDL/Glide window is a separate thing from the actual desktop …

When I run NFSIISE (3dfx version) in Win98 on host Ubuntu 20.04 I got this: glidept: DLL loaded - glide2x.dll glidept: DLL unloaded glidept: DLL loaded - glide2x.dll trace: _grGlideInit@0 called glidept: 0cce1fa-06:06:22 Jul 19 2021 build WRAPFX32 wr2x_trace: _grSstQueryHardware@4 wr2x_trace: _ …

Re: Very old Linux native games on modern Linux

in Milliways
Jo good points, source compatibility is where it's at. I think I read some years ago that the binary compatibility was made a fast moving target in Linux on purpose, so that Nvidia would have an incentive to open source their drivers. Idk if that's true but that would explain some of it... On Linux …

Re: QEMU 3Dfx Glide Pass-Through

They can & they haven't. It's not impossible, but as I said the wrappers do come with some extra maintenance burden (mismatching wrappers won't work at all). In the old thread there actually were some binaries on offer for a while, but they ceased to work if you only update the main qemu binary. …

Re: QEMU 3Dfx Glide Pass-Through

When I run ./qemu-system-i386 with win98VM and try run NFSIISE (nsf2sea.exe 3dfx exe file) I got error - Sorry, the file glide2x.dll must be installed for NFSIISE for 3Dfx to run. (in Win98VM files already in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM & C:\WINDOWS\) Hi, that simply means the glide2x.dll stub wasn't found. …

Thanks for sharing & Happy Birthday Bruno! You're such a youngster still :D So...for Ubuntu, you used that build-dep trick hopefully? Well it's not a cure for everything ofc. I'm not sure if I understood your setup (how the vmware vm fits in the picture). But there are many things I don't understand …

Re: Do you dislike the British?

in Milliways
My favorite phrase "it's more complicated than that", seems so apply quite well... That said, the problems are usually rooted in the government and not the people. I really don't want to delve into politics too much, but colonization didn't stop with the British. It's still going on today, just in a …

Re: QEMU 3Dfx Glide Pass-Through

in PC Emulation
Hmm I already had my hopes up this time would be different, but apparently not. iddqd iddqd ... nope doesn't work :( Oh well, worth a try. Remember, ruthan is still waiting for his sparring buddies at win-raid, should any of you guys feel like venting off. Worth considering. Let's try to steer this …

Re: QEMU 3Dfx Glide Pass-Through

in PC Emulation
Bruno yeah I know, I was being a little cheeky there, I guess it was lost in translation... You have very good points and the major pain point is exactly what you just stated: The target audience vs. what's on offer. The only projects that come to my mind that don't offer binaries are HyperDbg and …

Re: QEMU 3Dfx Glide Pass-Through

CybeREX, as we have learned Google is your friend (sorry, I just had to). Yeah that's obviously something to improve upon in the docs, there is just that one word about it and it's not in the repos. So CybeREX you're in a good position as a test subject here :D Here's the link: https://qa.debian.org …

Re: QEMU 3Dfx Glide Pass-Through

in PC Emulation
Thank you Bruninho for taking the time to gather that list. Now there's something concrete to deal with. Couple of comments about the Linux part: For Linux apt users kjliew gave a great tip in the earlier post with "build-dep". That's one of those things that maybe common knowledge, but would still …

Re: QEMU 3Dfx Glide Pass-Through

in PC Emulation
OK I think I understand your stand a little better now. Better docs for everyone! But if the only option that is offered is building from source, that's already bit of a giveaway that it's going to be a bit on the advanced side. Maybe it's not necessary to learn all of C++ to get it going, but still …

Re: Getting UniPCemu up and running

in PC Emulation
Yes for ISA definitely some bridging is needed, but I'm woefully ignorant on these matters so can't really advise. Btw perhaps VGA will work once the OS drivers take the wheel, but I've not managed to test it. Still would be nice to have it from the get-go. Please note that the PCI ID numbers …

Re: Getting UniPCemu up and running

in PC Emulation
Thanks! Yes that's actually what I meant: Isn't the PCI configuration space the responsibility of the 440FX motherboard? It's possible that I just don't know enough about PCI (so for me it would be interesting to see how this SeaBIOS log would look like in a real physical hw that has only PCI), but …
