VARCem - Virtual ARchaeological Computer EMulator


VARCem is a software application which implements several computer systems of the past, allowing you to "run" these systems as if they were real.

Being a cycle-exact emulator, those systems will be emulated at the speed they actually ran at, contrary to emulators that run them as fast as they can. Software designed for these systems will therefore see no difference, and run as fast (or, as slow) as they would have on the original systems.

Most of the emulated systems are based on the "IBM PC" line of systems, meaning, personal computers such as, or compatible with, the original computer from IBM, and its successors.
