Hey BetaArchive!

I just went to install Chicago 58s, and I used WDPSL (If you read my earlier topics). I do Auto Mode, and it gives me an error, along with messed up or black versions of background text and the Windows Logo.

Please Help!

Or use something more appropriate for such an old build, such as PCem. :p

VMware also works, but to an extent only.

I'm aware that a Linux version does exist, but I've heard of many problems here and there... so I would not recommend it.

The Linux version is plain garbage, really. Neither Battler nor Tom Walker are Linux users (actually, I think both of them dislike it) and so it's coded pretty shiftily and it's made with Allegro. It needs an overhaul and Linux-minded devs probably in a fork that would allow for a rebuild from the base and up.

I can't get it to compile on Arch Linux, and I have allegro's latest libraries and stuff.

- James: I don't dislike Linux per se (I use it after all on my dedicated server), I just think it's not yet ready to be the average consumer's home OS. :p

In any case, I am however unfamiliar with any Linux GUI API, that and ANY GUI changes need to be first discussed with the project's head, which is Tom Walker. It's going to take some time to even get some needed Windows UI changes done (such as a complete overhaul of the Settings dialog), let alone Linux stuff. :p

Edit: It's also probable, as is usual with Linux components, that they keep changing the Allegro API to the point of having to make code for each Allegro version.

Very possible. I'm sure that GTK+ is probably a better bet on native-Linux anyway; or going the qemu path and making everything command-line oriented.

Or make a PCem that does Linux OSes instead of DOS/Windows. Like that would ever happen... 8-)

Linux OSes are supported on PCem, although few of them have been tested compared to DOS/OS2/Windows/WinNT, this is because they are not of high priority at the moment, but we would like more testers and bug reports as well as improvements from them.

QEMU does this already well.
