Version info:

libTAS version: 1.4.1

Annotation info:

OS: Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS, Linux kernel 5.4.0-59-generic libTAS: Version 1.4.1 stable PCem: TASVideos branch v17_13f53a2, commit 55f0fdb3b83e983646e7b5dcc6dbae5f5e2ee06b

Follow these instructions up through the NVR section: http://tasvideos.org/EmulatorResources/PCem/DOS.html#Early90s

Download FD12LGCY.iso (md5: a55750577b4c3b88dba489df4f929f88) from here: https://www.freedos.org/download/

In your .cfg file, set cdrom_drive = 200 and set cdrom_path = {path to FD12LGCY.iso here}.

In ~/.pcem/pcem.cfg, set confirm_on_stop_emulation = 0.

UNCHECK RUNTIME -> PREVENT WRITING TO DISK OR THIS MOVIE WILL DO NOTHING!

Set game executable to your pcem path. Set command-line options to --config {path to your .cfg file here} and then run the movie.

For now, you may want to have fast-forward on when you run this movie. There are two restart inputs in the movie; these can be buggy. Each time there's a restart input, you will have to close the window manually after it. You can tell there's been a restart because the frame counter stops, these only happen on reboot prompts in the FreeDOS installation. Emulation normally continues and the RTC keeps ticking until you close the window, but if you have fast-forward on, it pauses the emulation properly. Just X out the PCem window and it will restart on its own after that. On the last frame of the movie, stop and kill PCem through libTAS.

This should leave you with these three files from the Early 90s premade config:

.cfg file in ~/.pcem/configs/ - Hashes for this will vary because file paths/names will be different for everyone.

.nvr file in ~/.pcem/nvr/ - md5: 4628d06be958fb8b577376d3f6c4a447

.img file wherever you originally saved it - md5: f1b6b5e374182b88812245d4cca0d6d3

Instructions have changed slightly, note that it now tells you to delete flash.bin. Also, run in fast-forward for best results.
