Re: Do you keep your retro rigs offline?

in Milliways
All my systems have access to each other and the internet. They are all behind a firewall and also I don't have anything of value on the retro machines. If they are a security issue I don't really care. Also as others have pointed out, they are for the most part powered off.

I used that collection-drivers before, but the driver on Apocalypse-CD v5 is different from your collection. It has also a very different install process. Please check that. The driver from V5 is 11/1997! 4.0.2.x? I think also the framerate on Motoracer1 seems to be much better! You're right, the …

I tested the 4.0.0 drivers for the PCX1. Damn the performance drop is significant compared to the 4.1.2 in Direct3D in all games! The drivers certainly improved over time. With the 4.0.0 I could finally get Motoracer (demo) running without problems, but the framerate suffered. A patch was released …

D3D on the PowerVR cards have never been perfect. You can try playing around with the settings and also get the latest drivers (4.1.2) which have more profiles for popular games.

Looks like compatibility error with your graphics card. Some cards are faster/slower with PowerVR and less troublesome than others. Matrox and Rendition works flawlessly from my experience.

Re: Problematic games on newer hardware released after 2004

in Windows
Yes, I was looking for games released after 2004 that have issues on modern hardware and Windows 10. Disc DRM is easier to circumvent or just buy a Steam/GOG release. I'm aware of Halo 2, but that is a Vista game so should run fine on Windows 10. So it's only the spot between 2004 and 2007 when …

Problematic games on newer hardware released after 2004

in Windows
Wondering if anyone can think of problematic games on newer systems released after 2004? I can only think of Quake 4 (which do not like videoram above 1GB, need to force ultra settings, micro-stutter with v-sync and turning on ambient lightning breaks the game, basically a PIA to get running …
