Re: Papyrus Nascar 2 high resolution?

... But it is limited to games using the stand-alone glide2x.ovl file. That wasn't quite a limit at all. DOS glide games with static linked OVL are minority . Windows Glide games are all dynamic linked DLL. It should also be noted that Voodoo1 emulation is far from perfect, a fact that most had …

Re: Mechwarrior 2 Mercenaries non-Titanium version

in Windows
PCem with windows 98 plays the 3dfx version PCem is too slow for any games that support 3D acceleration. Simple games (for eg. Moto Racer 1) can be barely playable with hefty machines, high single-core turbo clocked and desktop class CPUs. Anything more than that (for eg. NFS3, Quake2 etc.) would …

Re: Papyrus Nascar 2 high resolution?

The game supports 3Dfx Glide. This is your best option for the highest graphics details at 30FPS at any views and any number of opponent cars drawn. Use a glide wrapper and you can upscale from 640x480 at any resolution you wish. I could do the drive practice of the 1st circuit at locked 30FPS at …

Mechwarrior 2 Mercenaries non-Titanium version

in Windows
In the past, I didn't bother to look into the regular versions of MW2 Mercenaries because only Direct3D was possible as hardware acceleration option. I was pretty happy with Titanium version and its 3Dfx Glide support. Checking out Wine AppDB , the game was considered garbage for Wine and none …

Re: GOG Expendable won't benchmark

in Windows
Vanilla Expendable run on Win2K/XP if you patched out the CPU tests or use the command line "-nocputest". This was how I checked it out on Win2K/XP VMs, should be the same on real machine. Unfortunately, GO.EXE has bugs that it can only take 1 argument on the command-line, so we can't put together …

Re: dgVoodoo 2.7.x and related WIP versions

You know that the text just looks bad because font smoothing is on in Windows right? This is actually one of the things that are fixed by the compatibility database that breaks when you rename the exe. Which I found a bit weird, since there are other games with the same issue, that are in the …

Re: dgVoodoo 2.7.x and related WIP versions

If anyone's curious why the exe renaming works, Windows has a built in compatibility database with a lot of fixes it bases just on filename. MIDTOWN.EXE applies a compatibility fix, DirectPlayEnumOrder that breaks dgVoodoo. Renaming exe also something helps with getting away from bad GPU driver …

Re: dgVoodoo 2.7.x and related WIP versions

Ok if i rename midtown.exe to MidtownMadness.exe it works properly (with direct3d also, that is renamed dxvoodoo2 wrapper) but with a very, very, veeery slow frame rate and stuttering, also with 640x480 The game supports all native resolutions from Direct3D HAL including widescreen. Just install …

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 clone with x86 basis

in Milliways
It's a perfectly valid comparison - if the feature is not implemented or enabled in your shipped firmware, you as an end user simply will not have normal access to it, pure and simple. It is NOT, because VMX/EPT does not require anything from the firmware. If the platform is not locked down, you as …

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 clone with x86 basis

Eh, not all of those x86 SBCs expose Intel vmx/ept instructions to the OS in their firmware. ... not exposed by default on their shipping firmware - its pretty much an experimental, niche feature You are just being naive to think that VMX/EPT are still experimental. They have been here for the past …

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 clone with x86 basis

And I am telling you that it can not be done. Why do you think Dosbox exist in the first place? You can buy one of these, install modern Linux, run DOS/Win9x on QEMU KVM and you can play your past x86 games collection. I am telling you that it can be done. You could do the same on ARM SBCs but much …

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 clone with x86 basis

.....why not just go big, and buy a modern I7 machine or something and be done with it. SD-Cards can not manage all them endless writing in terms of swapping anyway. The point is not having to go big but still able to play legacy x86 DOS/Windows games from the past. I wasn't at all refer to modern …

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 clone with x86 basis

"The ROCK Pi X BIOS is based on the AMI(American Megatrends, Inc) AptioV BIOS with UEFI and 64bit OS support, providing a user friendly interfaces I am surprised that it didn't use the free EDK2 barebone UEFI implementation to further reduce cost. Or, Intel hadn't been doing a great job in …
