: The video frame is empty, actually transparent, and the hard drive is extremely noisy/busy, and my computer slows down incredibly. I can't control-alt-delete, I have to cold boot the computer to restart. I am not running any programs at all,and loading the bare minimum of drivers.

This is absolutely bizarre.. 95 and 98 shouldn't be so different.

I'm installing Win95 on a machine as we speak. I'll let you know what I find.

do... but I can't imagine it is. This emulator should run full speed on a Pentium (at least I hope so!) and I have a PII-266. But this is pitifully slow - perhaps not working - on my system running Win95 OSR2.1.

I'm not sure where you get what it 'should' do... my docs state that on my P2-400 it's only a little faster than a real TI, and it fluctuates madly. ;)

What I would *like* is full speed on a high-end Pentium.

What is proven *possible* by V9T9 is full speed on a high-end 486 (so, low-end pentium under Windows, say).

But the emulator is nowhere near that point.

:everything off the Net that I need. But anyhow, it should work on Win95 on a PII266 at full speed.)

I anxiously await your VDP core to speed up rendering Bitmap mode. ;)

: P.P.S. Next build of MESS, v0.36 beta 9, should have full keyboard support in the TI99-4/A driver. Also, Raphael Nabet fixed a small bug in the TMS9900 core. Perhaps you might want to investigate.

He and I don't use the same core, though.. not even close. I've looked at the MAME 9900 core before, to see if I could find anything funky, and I like mine a *lot* more. ;)


Been there before, but thanks. ;)
