Re: Okay, no Covox. Change of plans...

in Milliways
Athlon 64 X2 3800+, Asus A8M2N-LA motherboard (pulled from a Compaq), Radeon HD 4650, 4 GB of RAM, and the FM801 card. I clearly overestimated the retro support of an AM2 platform. Socket 754/939/AM2 boards based on VIA K8T890 (with PCIe) can work with FM801 as far as I've tried. However, it was …

Re: Okay, no Covox. Change of plans...

If your motherboard is relatively new you won't be able to get anything but FM. I presume your southbridge is either nForce (all) or Intel (ICH6 and later). I used to have a lot of issues with stable vanilla DOSBox. You may consider DOSBox-X which is more accuracy focused and addressed a good amount …

Re: What to do with my AWE64 Gold?

So as the title states I have an AWE64 Gold in a static bag not being utilized and I'd like to put it in something. The "slowest" PCs I have are both 233 MHz socket 7 systems, one is a AMD K6 and the other is a Pentium MMX. I also have several super 7 systems with a mix of K6-2/3, a slot 1 Pentium …

Re: Reasons to hate modern games

Intel says it's launched in Q2 2022, so very recently. I've only see news that it only launched in China. https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/details/discrete-gpus/arc/arc-a-series.html https://www.techradar.com/news/intel-arc-a380-desktop-gpu-goes-on-sale-but-you-shouldnt-buy-it And …

Re: Reasons to hate modern games

in Milliways
What's going on with Warhammer 40K games? For years and years there were just the Space Hulk games, but now there are hundreds of the things, and dozens of new ones get released each year. What's going on over there? What business model is this? But I would love a new modern computer that are able …

Re: PCIe RAM Disk - TAKE MY MONEY!

in Milliways
Gigabyte I-RAM was quite interesting back then, as at that time (around 2005-2006) high speed SSD (and NVMe) was not yet a thing. Don't know if the RAM drive OP mentioned can use registered memory, as these are relatively cheaper per GB compared to the unbuffered counterparts and are available in …

Re: PC USB to Floppy emulator?

in Milliways
Sorry guys, Honestly, I forget that I am dealing with technical people. I am so used to dumbing things down, that it has become a habbit. Sorry. Ok, so I have a Dell D800. I can just copy most old software off the floppy image to a directory and install from there. But things like Microsoft C 7.0 …

Re: PC USB to Floppy emulator?

in Milliways
Technically you can dd a floppy image or a CD image into a USB drive then use it like one, but you would unnecessarily waste spaces as you cannot use the rest of the disk that way. I think you can consider using Ventoy . This is a game changer as it made dd-ing the images to the USB unnecessary. You …

Re: PC USB to Floppy emulator?

in Milliways
Gotek floppy emulator is for use cases that requires a FDC connection. I think you're just talking about front panel USB hubs. On some PCs there are actually options to specify USB storage device as floppy or maybe other stuffs (like CDROM, ZIP) on a per-device basis. But usually you'd be using USB …
