ive looked into it a little and i have done what i think is right? set up a beebem directory. when i go to run the beebem exe it says dll files needed. i have got the dll files from here (sth) but i dont dare add them to my windows/system folder. is it safe? i take it everyone else here needed to do this?<br>
The other thing is. in my main bbc folder that holds all the files and folders, theres a beebem.exe in there and when i run that i get a little window with the bbc start up screen. it doesnt come up with dll files needed message like the other one in my beebem folder.(that i got from the intelbin older). <br>
i then click on load disc 0 and do the shift and f12 to run the test.sdd file but nothing happens?<br>
Its doing my head in! please help! I'll be quicker to get the bbc down from the attic! <p></p><i></i>

I still haven't added the files to my system folder but i think i'll try it over the weekend. i also tried the model b emulator. i did everything it says to do in the txt file. and when i go to run the emulator it comes up with something like cannot read os12.rom. do i have to take the extension off like you do with the beebem one? I think i tried it and still dosent work?<br>
Can someone please help me!!!!!??????<br>

BeebEm setup

Postby AJH » Sat Jan 31, 2004 8:01 pm

The BeebEm directory should hold all .dll files required<br>
Here is a list of files in my BeebEm folder:<br>
And here a list of files in my BeebFile folder:<br>
beebemBeebFilewdfs.rom (or other dfs rom)<br>
If you have no dfs rom you cannot shift break etc. <p></p><i></i>

All of the BBC emulators that I have tried under Win XP have worked flawlessly including BeebEm, Model-B, B-Em, PCBBC and JBeeb. All of these emulators also come with all the necessary files to run them (other than Model-B where there's a separate set of DLLs you *may* have to download if they are not already on your system).<br>
If you're still having trouble, let me know... <p></p><i></i>
