PCem is an LLE PC emulator.


PCem is a somewhat accurate PC emulator that is capable of running numerous OSes and many, many games. It has a dynamic recompiler in the works that gives accurate Pentium support, but this is experimental and it's only for 32-bit users. It can also emulate numerous 2D and 3D cards, even the S3 ViRGE, which no other emulator supports.

Operating System Support

{Note: List is incomplete}

List of OS that can be installed on it:

  • DOS
  • Windows 3/3.11
  • Windows 95
  • Windows 98
  • Select any x86-32 flavor of NT before Vista, it works.
  • Some older flavors of Linux (including Debian 3.0)
  • BeOS

Video Card Support

  • MDA
  • Hercules
  • CGA
  • EGA
  • VGA
  • A couple of Trident cards
  • Tseng ET4000AX
  • Tseng ET4000/W32p
  • ATI Mach 64
  • S3 Trio64
  • S3 ViRGE

There's also a branch out there that does basic VESA modes for the RIVA 128 and nothing else.

  • Adlib
  • Adlib Gold
  • Sound Blaster 1.0 through AWE32
