Does NO$PSX works on Windows 98 ?

Post by New Nova » August 23rd, 2020, 4:04 am

It says it all. I want to know if there is a version of NO$PSX that could work on Win98SE with 800MHz Celeron and 180MB of RAM.

Or any psx emuator with TTY output on this kind of platform.
Thanks.

Last i tried NO$PSX and Win98SE, it worked on my IBM ThinkPad T42 laptop (Intel Pentium M Dothan / 1GB RAM).
Not sure what it could give with your specs, give a try and let us know ? :)

Ok, I changed config because the BIOS just freezed, and my win98se was kinda corrupted.
So, Fresh install of Win98SE, specs :

AMD 1.15GHz (as I searched)
512MB of RAM
64MB VRAM video card

When I launch NO$PSX it shows FATAL - Unexpected error

Any help ?

What's the point in trying to run an emulator on a Win98 machine?
If you dropped the real hardware idea you're better off running it on a modern computer while setting up PsyQ on a WinXP virtual machine (or using both PsyQ and the emulator on the same virtual machine).

NO$PSX works under Windows 98 SE for me fine. It's a bit slow, but that's on a Pentium 3 at 400 MHz. It's fine for doing tests though with homebrew stuff.

It might not be compatible with the AMD instruction set since it was purely written in Assembly code by NO$CASH and he might be taking advantage of certain Intel based opcodes.
