Hello, I've recently setup PCem with Windows 98SE, any tips on the optimal drivers, setup specs etc. for playing games like European Air War, Jane's USAF, and M1TP2? I'm new to emulation so if I'm missing something obvious, forgive me.

When running the Windows 98SE installer, you might want to force ACPI support. It is recommended to do so when you are installing Windows 9x in a VM, to prevent 100% CPU utilization even when the VM is idling. I'm not sure if this would help with PCem as well, since that is a full emulator as opposed to a hypervisor. But play with it, it might improve performance. 🙂

ACPI is forced at install time by starting the installer with the following command at the command prompt:

setup /p j

Good luck and have fun!
