Re: Fortex: Vortex2+YMF744

Side note, not exactly related to the present card: as this card needs a PCI bridge anyway (to drive both the Aureal and the Yamaha) in theory your design could be modified to use a PCIe-to-PCI bridge and thus create some PCIe cousin of this card if somebody is interested in such a thing? (I dont …

Re: Java Emulation

in PC Emulation
While the JVM has some similarities with what we normally call VMs (e.g. abstraction, memory virtualization, etc.), They're not really the same thing. Modern VMs utilize a hypervisor or some equivalent layer that allows for general computer programs to be executed on top (e.g. DOS, Windows, etc.). …

Re: Windows 3.1 on FreeDOS

By the way, there are two FreeDOS mailing lists, one for users and one for developers. I've found the community in both to be quite approachable and helpful. I believe there was recently a discussion on one of them about Windows 3.x support, including said patches. I think the best chance at getting …

Re: OPL2LPT

Glad you found an alternative solution, X3NoMoRPH! But I think you should have left out `adlipt` in the command you tried. So my guess is that the command `JLOAD JADLIPT.DLL` would probably have worked, provided that JLOAD (part of Jemm) was in the path, and you were currently in the adlipt …

Re: Babylon 5 remake?

in Milliways
I'm curious, by the way: have any of you seen any episodes of Crusade , the shortlived Babylon 5 spinoff? I actually liked it. It definitely felt part of the Babylon 5 universe, while at the same time having a unique atmosphere of its own. I quickly warmed up to the cast. Also, the music for it was …

Re: Babylon 5 remake?

DS9 is a bad copy of a great show. It picked up in later seasons, and it had some really good episodes. I remember one episode in particular in which Sisko gets struck by some kind of energy pulse that makes him jump rapidly forward in time, briefly occasionally emerging and then disappearing again …

Re: Java Emulation

in PC Emulation
I didn't know about JavaOS, but I'll do you one better: at a certain point Sun (before they were required by Oracle) actually developed chips that could run Java JVM bytecode natively! ARM chips did the same, for example the J in "ARM926EJ-S" stands for Jazelle which was a special mode the chips …

Re: Java Emulation

in PC Emulation
Would Java be its own category of emulation since its platform-independent and had at one point have its own OS called JavaOS? I didn't know about JavaOS, but I'll do you one better: at a certain point Sun (before they were required by Oracle) actually developed chips that could run Java JVM …

Re: Babylon 5 remake?

Lexx always seemed like it it was a bad copy of Andromeda crossed with Red Dwarf written by a Cirque de Soleil creator on acid. I almost managed to follow it after catching 10 episodes in a row once, but then missed one and I was lost again. Andromeda was already so bad... The first few seasons …

Re: DIGPAK sound drivers open-sourced under MIT License

in DOS
Why do you need to port it? You can use GUI Turbo Assembler. I know this is a bit of a philosophical matter, but I believe that open source code isn't truly Free until you are able to build it with a completely open source toolchain. Additionally to that, for me personally there is also the …

Re: PCMCIA Sound Cards

You won't get DMA support going from PCI to ISA without SB-Link / PC-PCI which could be possible with some laptops but would also require soldering on the laptop motherboard at a minimum and would also require a PCI to ISA adapter that supports it as well and something like that was never sold as …
