You right.

Yeah, I know. Everyone hates their licensing methods, and stuff, but hey, not many can live without windows. I think they've shot themselves in the foot with this new licensing method. Linux gonna get ahead because of it believe me. I battled my ass off the first time I had to activate my XP. Ah …

HOORAY!!!!!!!

Dudes, its fixed... All games are smooth and music sounds great. I applied XP service Pack 1 and BAM!!, working DOS games. ( God damn Microsoft MotherF#@*er's !!!! ) I would like once again to extend my deepest thanks to all you guys who put in the effort to help me. I really could not have asked …

Hello again...

Thanks guys for the feedback... I have installed XP from scratch, numerous times. Each time doing a Boot off the CD and deleting all partitions, then creating a new part, and then proceed to the format. Anyways, directly after install I try the games first before the drivers are updated and ..... …

Holy crap!

Hey dudes, I just spoke to a mate with almost the exact same config as mine except, he has an earlier release of AMD-761 mainboard. I have the Gigabyte GA-7DXE, He has the GA-7DXR+, and I see that they are almost identical on the Gigabyte web site, however... HIS FREAKIN' GAMES WORK FINE!!! ( sorry …

Boohoo...

Kripes!!! The NTVDM that was posted yesterday did not work. This is bullcrap!!..Why is my PC so full of Shyte?? Did I perhaps install it (NTVDM) incorrectly? Could you give me a short installation guide, Pleez..? I ran the update.exe in the update directory, is that correct? Is there anything else I …

Kewl.

Hey thanks! I will give it a try. I actually tried something similar by copying Win2k NTVDM.exe & dll file into my Winxp\system32 directory after removing the old ones. I did back them up, and just as well to...'cos after that nothing wanted to work. Hehehe, It was worth a try though. Well lets hold …

Same here...

Yeah, you guys are probably right. Its been on my mind since this thing cropped up. I must have reloaded XP about 3 times (without exaggerating) to try and puzzle out a possible fix.I guess my machine and XP weren't meant for eachother. I will wait for XP Service Pack 1 to be officially released and …

Hold on..

Hey guys, With sierra games you have the choice of playing the game with PC speaker or No sound ( No audio or voice card present is the exact words ).I do hear sound with PC speaker, but the games & music are still slow and unplayable. I was informed by Nicht sehr Gut to run these games with PC …

Hello/

Yes, I have done so. I have tried with a PC Speaker and with NO sound. I have not gone as far as physically removing the sound card from the machine, YET. It still has no effect, anyways. All my windows games do run perfectly, these ROM emulators also run fine, as you said it is probably because it …

Listen to this...

Now I am really freakin' confused.. I dunno if you guys now about these sega emulators (NES) etc,etc... If I run the emulator these games work like a dream, smooth graphics, music sounds great ( Adventure Island, Circus Charlie ). Try DOS games, Impulse tracker, and they still up the duff (still not …

Hey guys.

I didn't want to stray off the subject too much. I found a site http://www.acpi.info.com. A bit technical but looked good. anyway, I tried using different IRQ's to solve my Games issue, but Itdid not work. I should also report that Impulse tracker is running very slowly too now. I was only able to …

Alrighty?

I know that of APM there were only a few available IRQ's for use with different hardware. How many IRQ's does ACPI have and how many available? Does ACPI just make use of more bits than APM's 16bits to achieve many more Interrupts? Shweet. Clint.

Kewl.

Ok, that clears that up. Just looked strange to me considering the IRQ table used to only have 16 irq's ( 0 - 15 ). I am gonna try different IRQ selections with VDMS tonite and let you know. Bottoms up. Clint.

DosFreak, Snover......

Dosfreak, Thanks for the clarity, I really appreciate it. So in short, you're saying that Xp Pro should actually offer me more than XP Home? I also cannot believe that the two are different that much, except maybe for a slight difference in appearance. Let me know your thoughts. Snover, I will give …
