PCem 8.1

Category: Utility
Year: 2014
Description:This is Pcem 8.1 with almost all the BIOS files. The only one that is missing is the acer386 ROM. I've added a simple hard disk, and a version of MS-DOS for testing along with a couple of games. This is the best retro-pc emulator, bare none. Emulates IBM PC/XT, AT, clone 386, 486 based systems.
Manufacturer: Tommo Walker

Not running DN3D. Running Duke Nukem 1 from 1991. Using the Award 430VX PCI as downloaded. Shows only 48% in title bar at dos prompt. When running Duke1, shows only 27% in title bar. Can't find any way to change this. Running on Pentium 4 WinXP HT processor and this CPU is causing emulator to take up over 55% CPU utilization.
Changed to AMI 486 Clone (and 386 clone) and now works great in both. CPU utilization is now negligible. Shows 99-1001% in title bar. I will be trying this for running old office software.

What system are you emulating? the 386? lol it won't emulate DN3D really good... make sure in the title bar, that the % is high at least 101% so you are getting the true speed.
For Duke3D, try the AMI 486 DX2/66, it should be able to handle duke3d just fine.
Also can you share your floppy duke?

Nice PC Emulator. Already setup, which is great, because I could not get the bare bones program from Tom's Page to run. This works on my WinXP PC. Made a floppy disk image of Duke Nukem and installed to the HDD from the A drive. Installed ok. However, the performance is really poor. Very jerky motion. Tried varous setting changes, but nothing helped. Too bad, because I have been looking for alternative to Dosbox. Guess I'll just continue to use my old Digital PC (66MHz 486) for my old Dos programs.
