JohnTalenPossible problem emulating the 8259 PIC on my local machine for v86. Looking into it further. [15:22]
.... (idle for 19mn)
it's apparent the downloadable v86 and the one on the site is completely different. [15:41]
....... (idle for 34mn)
It's in the restorative process of both Windows images. Other images work fine. [16:15]

SketchCowExcellent.
So, JohnTalen
devesine_: First did the painful porting attempt with what became JSMESS. Now retired.
Vito`: Did even more painful porting and specifically making compiling flexible. Now retired.
DFJustin: Has been overseeing things since the beginning, heavily connected to MAME and does lots of great work
bai: Does a lot of work on the project from every angle
jvilk_: Wrote the filesystem in javascript system we use, just jumps in in emergencies or updates
SketchCow: Some asshole
Everyone else has stuff they're helping with. A few are just observers.
db48x: Doing the Emularity, and a ton of other works
[17:15]

Vito`SketchCow: is there any movement on vlc.js lately? I just ripped some Quicktime Cinepak files from a NASA CD from 2001 that it'd be neat to stream without re-encoding
Can't play them on modern Quicktime
[17:27]
baiyeah actually j-b messaged me the other day, they're doing a week long hackathon next week to get it working [17:28]
Vito`hot damn [17:28]
baithey bid on the wrong horse when they decided to prioritize the PNaCl build, heh [17:29]
Vito`haha [17:31]
SketchCowI was JUST going to add this
But I didn't know about the hackathon
Regardless, my position was:
... they see the future
... it's just when they can join it
So help them, but it's them
[17:40]
baiyeah, I told them Id make myself available during that time, and we could pull in whoever else (meaning azakai) as they had questions [17:46]

john__SketchCow: did you have any other emulators besides v86 you would want to use? [18:48]
***john__ is now known as JohnTalen [18:49]
SketchCowvice.js
Those are the two big missing ones that I think are of high enough quality to use.
[18:49]
JohnTalenokay thanks. [18:54]
SketchCowv86 is way more important. [18:56]
JohnTalenare there specific app images you wanted for both those emulators? [18:59]
***db48x has quit IRC (Read error: Operation timed out) [19:03]
JohnTalenSketchCow: thank you for the intros.
SketchCow: what did you specifically want done with vice.js?
[19:04]
SketchCowIntegration into the emularity [19:07]
JohnTalenok [19:08]
baiwelcome to the collective. you will soon be emulated. [19:10]

JohnTalenare there going to be bootable win95 install or general image disks on archive.org?
meaning, downloable images...
[21:27]
db48xJohnTalen: in general there could be anything
JohnTalen: but if you take a look at https://archive.org/details/softwarelibrary_win3_showcase you'll see how we intend to set things up
the metadata tells the emularity to load both the current item and a specific windows 3.1 disk, mounting one as the C: drive and the other as d:
D:
we then run a batch file that starts windows and then the application, but that part's not really relevant to anything other than windows 3.1
[21:32]
JohnTalenYes, I noticed that 2 hours ago when I tried the win95 demo disk for windows 3.1. nicely done! [21:39]
db48xthank you :) [21:40]
JohnTalenyw! :) [21:41]
db48xfor v86 it could also be a linux boot image and some linux program, or a bsd boot image plus..., etc
we'll even happily let people boot up the installers, even though it won't be super useful for them
[21:41]
JohnTalengonna have to get windows at some point. linux tools are very much lacking when it comes to optical drives, in fact it's downright hissed upon. [21:46]
db48xoh? what are you doing with your optical drive? [21:54]
JohnTalenbrilliant, microsoft's windows 10 pages are severly broken.
well, i want to make windows 95/98/(etc al.) images. need to make boot disks too. linux has mkisofs...that's about it.
[21:55]
db48xah
there are probably images you can download from archive.org
[21:57]
JohnTalenyeah, that was my earlier question.
making isos are easy. making them bootable. well. that's arcane art not tied to any search engine web pages.
linux for linux. easy.
[21:59]
DFJustinhttps://archive.org/details/MicrosoftWindows9500004404Microsoft1995 [22:03]
JohnTalenDFJustin: thanks.
nice.
do i need a key for it?
[22:04]
DFJustinprobably [22:05]
JohnTalenwell, even to see if it gets into gfx mode is a plus. [22:05]
db48xJohnTalen: oooh, I misunderstood your earlier question :D [22:06]
JohnTalencurrent images are questionable at best. they are at-desktop burns.
db48x: :)
[22:06]
DFJustinhere's a boot disk if you need one https://archive.org/download/MAME_0.185_Software_List_ROMs_non-merged/MAME_0.185_Software_List_ROMs_non-merged.zip/MAME%200.185%20Software%20List%20ROMs%20%28non-merged%29%2Fibm5170%2Fwin95b.zip [22:14]
JohnTalenthank you.
prolly won't be useful as i've already used a boot disk for 95. what i was looking for was a bootable cd.
[22:16]
DFJustinprobably doesn't exist since win95 era pcs couldn't boot from cd [22:19]
Vito`probably explains why my Win98 CD here also includes a boot floppy [22:22]
.... (idle for 16mn)
JohnTalenhm perhaps slip streaming was only partial to w98. it's been a while. [22:38]
