Re: 64bit question

Thanks grinvader, good info! Just like 16-bit 8086 code won't run in 32-bit mode, 32-bit code won't run in 64-bit mode. OK, I was afraid of that, that the CPU working in a different mode when running a 64bit OS. I tried bsnes yesterday, looks good, I like the idea about trying to make a accurate emu...

64bit question

64bit cpu's are backward compatible with 32bit cpu's, so shouldn't the 32bit code also run if it is compiled into 64bit anyway? Or are there lots of other things that I don't know that is different in 64bit, like function calls are different, MMX/SSE stuff are different maybe...? maybe it's pointles...

Re: Ubuntu 11.10 64bit mplayer/mencoder compability problem

Official docs, coupled with hard work from people who spent weeks dissecting the stuff. Not very suprising response Is there any way that work and knowledge can be shared. Or do they wish to remain anonymous and silent to not be interfered by nintendo too much? Is the sourcecode all there is to rea...

Re: Ubuntu 11.10 64bit mplayer/mencoder compability problem

It would be fun if you would just rewrite it in x86-64 asm anyway just for nostalgic reasons, but, I dunno, wish I could help with development anyway. Would be interesting to get into the chips programming, I'm an electronic engineer and always had interest in hardware. I have always wondered how yo...

Re: Ubuntu 11.10 64bit mplayer/mencoder compability problem

Maybe it would be a good thing to cure cancer and aids. I understand it is not and easy thing todo, I see that zsnes has damn much asm in it. zsnes was something that led me to get interested in asm programming myself. I made a simple IRC client in asm for win32 once. But I have not programmed for ...

Re: Ubuntu 11.10 64bit mplayer/mencoder compability problem

Ok thanks, I was just thinking. Is assembler programming really needed with todays computers anyway. Couldn't those parts be rewritten in C instead, since computers are so damn fast these days, writing in assembler isn't really necessary. It's also possible to write C-code so that it takes use of M...
