  1. Pity… If only somebody <wink, wink> ported it to something else than allegro4, it seems it would be quite useful also on OS X

    1. SDL? Is it really any better? I have an existing project I need to move from Allegro4 to at least SDL. SO many things, so little time, and I’m all too easy to distract!

    1. there is an AT diskette set for AIX 1.3 … I’ve even installed it on a PS/2 model 80 a zillion years ago. It was horribly unstable on there too. Just like Xenix with TCP/IP, it’s not the emulators fault it sucks.

  2. From PCem website:

    Updated v11 binary – anyone who’s been having problems with Voodoo emulation should re-download.
