Extreme Assault 3Dfx 'Q' or 'Tab' targeting

Hi Dege, This is very strange, not a rendering issue, but the targeting is not working only with Glide wrappers which makes the game unplayable now. I was completely puzzled because I am pretty sure I remembered they all worked (nGlide, OpenGlide, dgVoodoo 1.5 and dgVoodoo2) previously. This happens …

Re: dgvoodoo glide setup for interstate '76

in Windows
I76 Gold/Nitro's Glide backend is only really made for 2MB tmem'd voodoo cards (Voodoo Graphics) and have texture panics on anything more, including Voodoo2s Run great with QEMU + OpenGlide. If it really fussed about FB and TMU memory, then OpenGlide reports as Voodoo1 8MB framebuffer and 16MB TMU …

Re: Playing old Disney Interactive games at high resolutions

in Windows
It sounds like using a virtual machine is more of an inconvenience. Windows ME is giving problems with sound support. VM requires time to setup, but once it is done, the disk image is always there and you can archive it or use snapshots on VM invocation to retain a golden OS image. Once you have …

Re: Playing old Disney Interactive games at high resolutions

in Windows
How would that mess up the desktop? If you are running a FHD desktop with instances of browsers, spreadsheets, word processors and source code editors, when an old DirectDraw switches into full-screen (typically 640x480), then all the background apps resize to fit the screen. When you returned to …

Re: Playing old Disney Interactive games at high resolutions

in Windows
Does the game switch to full-screen window? Most games typically do that. If it does, then it is better to play in VM. When it switches to full-screen, you can drag and resize the VM to play it in any resolution. QEMU does that, I just tried StarCraft 1, and QEMU SDL2 display backend simply …

Re: What emulator use for Windows 9x on new PC ?

in PC Emulation
IMO, the biggest downside of PCem is that the emulator is faithful in the emulated CPU speed. A Pentium II is a Pentium II and the emulator behaves as a Pentium II, even though your CPU can go faster. There are certainly valid use cases for such emulation concept, but for legacy Glide/Direct3D/ …

Re: What emulator use for Windows 9x on new PC ?

in PC Emulation
I can run Final Reality on QEMU with Direct3D acceleration from WineD3D through MESA GL pass-through backend, upscaled to 1024x768. Today, if you build QEMU from source, then it is the only emulation vehicle that accelerates 3Dfx Glide, OpenGL and Direct3D through modern day's GPUs. FR.png I believe …

Re: Dosbox to emulate Windows programs (not games)

in DOS
If one booted a legit MS-DOS 6.22 image instead of using DOSBox internal DOS, then SHARE would come with it. I am not sure if SHARE would depend on low-level IBM PC INT15h that DOSBox may not be 100% compliant due to its focus on games.

Re: trouble with a program: cup386

A guy asks why cup386 doesn't run in DOSBox and I am trying to give the answer. It is better not to give any wrong answers if you do not know the stuffs. BTW, jmarsh does know his stuffs and I reaffirmed that your answer of "DOSBox cannot execute privileged instructions for x86 real-mode" is non- …
