Re: MiG Alley

in Windows
Cool. I never advanced far enough so I'm sticking with vanilla F18 for now - without the TSH realism mods. As it turns out I actually prefer the stock graphics to the hi-res TSH upgrades, and this suits my more casual involvement just fine. This, WW2 Fighters and Longbow 2 are really pretty awesome …

Re: Jane's F/A-18, I have v101f running under W10 using the "dxwnd" utility and setting the shortcut to W7 compatibility. nVidia GTX video card. Currently menus run in a box but flight is normal. I think there was a setting for fullscreen menus but I don't have it handy.

Re: MiG Alley

Hey everyone, thanks to all involved in making this possible!... This is great - wine seems to have done the trick. I copied over the dbg v085f install and dropped in the 3 files you linked to. The old girl fires up nicely and without the graphic tears in the cockpit I had before. Excellent! I …

Re: MiG Alley

I may havet to give PCEM a try given the success with MA. The installation proceedure was daunting which is why I shied away in the past. But that makes me laugh given all the hours spent installing and tweaking real W95/98 retro installs over the years...

Re: Another builds discussion

Having just finished tinkering with my own "Build 2 equivilent" the only thing I'd consider is bumping the Voodoo1 up to a Voodoo2 if you have the part. The P3-600/V2 will make good work of 800x600 games of this "mid era" something the V1 will struggle with. Of course the V1 will provide you with …

Re: Voodoo5 @ 64ox480 FSAA 4x: scaling study?

firage wrote on 2020-08-15, 11:55: Actually in the 4X FSAA case, at any resolution, it's showing no scaling or a mere +0.57% going from 733MHz to 1400MHz. 2xFSAA is similarly stuck except for the lowest resolution, which is probably what you're concerned with here. I stand corrected - it's 640x480 …

Voodoo5 @ 64ox480 FSAA 4x: scaling study?

Can anyone point me to a CPU scaling study for the V5 with FSAA max'ed out at 640x480 resolution? I'm familar with this one from a few years back: http://nightstormer.tripod.com/voodoo_article6.htm All resolutions higher than 640 cap out on the test rig but at 640x480 FSAA 4x frames are still rising …

Re: F1 2000 & F1 Championship Season 2000 (EA) - crashes

in Windows
I took a shot at this and have it running on W10. Using a NoCD exe in case that makes a difference, but I have a disk and iso to check. dgVoodoo2 v554; default settings except DX AF/AA max and resolution set to my desktop Run game config w/ admin and set to Secondary D3D graphics Set game exe …

Re: Wings Of Destiny (Psygnosis)

in Windows
Actually I found the hacked wod.exe on that site yesterday after checking this thread and the recent WOD chatter over at dxwnd. And and by jove it works! I'm using it on a W95osr2 build even - not emulation -and it solves the setting menu issue. Can finally set the cards, resolution and play with …

Re: Wings Of Destiny (Psygnosis)

in Windows
hi! - i just saw this thread, having asked about the game myself just now - silly me i thought it such an obscure game that noone else would ever be trying to get it working. I also cant run it on windows 10 - i get the animation format error at the start and that is a fatal exception error. I wish …

Re: A TNT2 32MB is apparently better than a 16MB Voodoo 3 3000?

in Milliways
You're saying the v5 has inferior IQ to the v3? I mentioned it - in a sort of off-topic ramble. From the Voodoo cards I have and use the V3 has the best IQ in my opinion - subjective of course. I love the V5 for all the things it does and it looks great too, but honestly the V3 turned my head with …

Re: Saitek Cyborg 3D joystick / Win95

The dilemma I face is that USB controller are no go on W95 of any flavor. You can enable the mass-storage/thumb drive function but that's about it. I was combing through a readme in an R Loew W95 USB driver kit looking for help (his memory limit patch is great BTW) and he states that exhaustive …
