Re: Datalight ROM-DOS 7.1

I had no problem installing the latest build of ROM-DOS. It's as simple as formatting your volume, then passing the following command... SYS C: After the initial boot files and COMMAND.COM transferred over, my hard disk started up ROM-DOS just fine. Other files not included in the initial transfer …

Re: Datalight ROM-DOS 7.1

does this actually run from a boot rom ? When ROM-DOS originally was designed and developed, this was indeed the case, and still is if you execute on a special licensing agreement with Datalight. The Single User Version I'm talking about here was limited to usage as a normal DOS on a standard disk. …

Datalight ROM-DOS 7.1

I recently stumbled across my old copy of Datalight ROM-DOS 7.1 from back in the day when it was given away as a free download (nowadays, acquiring a copy requires a payment of about $60 to attain a single user license for personal use, which I think is a bit silly). I've been playing with it some …

GeForce4 Ti 4600 vs GeForce FX 5900 (non-Ultra)

So I'm currently rocking a GeForce4 Ti 4600 (made by Leadtek under the WinFast brand) on the AGP bus. I do love this GPU, but the DVI out on the card is a bit... buggy. Games using standard VGA modes like Sierra adventure games from the early 90s (think Space Quest V) have extremely slow scrolling …

Re: Vortex 2 in Windows 2000.

The Vortex 2 drivers for 2000 and XP were never that great. I finally got around to installing them in place and they took fine. I will agree that the drivers aren't optimal, but even the 2559 beta drivers are a sorry sight better than the pile of crap Microsoft provided with Windows 2000. Don't …

Re: Does anyone else prefer ME over 98?

Also, let's be real. Dropping into MS-DOS mode on Windows 98 (using a custom AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS setup via Exit to Dos) required a reboot to take effect, so if I was going to reboot, may as well just have two distinct OSes and save myself the trouble. Disagree. If I need DOS and Windows, …

Re: Does anyone else prefer ME over 98?

This may seem like blasphemy for most here on VOGONS, but just the other day, I did a fresh dual boot setup with PC DOS and Windows Me to replace my original Windows 98 SE install. I never expected this to be the case, but Windows Me has ended up being more stable for me in my testing, especially …

Re: Aureal Vortex 2 and Windows ME

I don't remember what driver I used but I've had it running before. You will probably want to run an older revision (~2015), because WinME runs a minimum of DirectX 7.1 and anything after DirectX 7.0a is trouble with Aureal's later drivers. At least in my experience. With drivers after about 2015 …

Aureal Vortex 2 and Windows ME

Does anyone know if the 2041 or 2048 reference drivers for the Aureal Vortex 2 be hacked to run on Windows ME? I know Windows ME can accept VxDs in a pinch and I wanted to try this for my personal amusement. For some reason, I can get the stock drivers to pick up in the device manager. Thoughts?

"De-noising" Sound Blaster cards

I'm wondering if there is a way to fix the noise floor and and general noisiness of pre DSP 4.05 Sound Blaster 16 boards. Can certain components be desoldered off the board and then replaced with higher quality ones to enhance output? I'm not terrible experienced here but was wondering if this was a …
