Re: What do you drive?

i wonder if there will be a forum called VOCONR in the future! (Very Old Cars On New Roads!) You made me spit out my coffee! :D I expect Marvin would look like this..... Need Help to improve the support of L4, I4, Straight Six, V6, and low-power V8s in VehicleBenchmark 2095 Which EGM boards for …

Re: What do you drive?

Here's my main ride lol, 97 Ford Aspire, I have 2 of them, picked them up for around $500/ea, just needed work, been driving for years, can't beat 40mpg, they're getting a bit rough nowadays though. I have a bunch of classic Fords from 40-70's too that I prefer over newer vehicles. 90's Fords are …

Re: Crystal Audio Chips.. any fans?

4231 has no internal FM at all - maybe the info assumes an external FM chip (so as to have a cs4231+fm "full" WSS compatible card) AFAIK internal FM started with the broken implementation in the CS4235 chip, it was fixed in CS4236 and carried over to CS4237 and CS4238 - beyond these I have no …

Re: Crystal Audio Chips.. any fans?

I think I have a couple of these, one is a spare I keep in my parts bin that I've not even used yet, the other is the WSS Compatible CS-4231-KQ in my NEC Versa M/75. Is there a difference between the CS4231A and CS4231KQ? I keep reading on websites back and fourth that this chip has FM, and then it …

Re: How many working computers do you have right now?

All of my machines are up and running......so 18 working computers in the house, new and vintage. And by the nature of FreeDOS, it seems those lines keep getting more blurry. Add to that 4 consoles. 1985 Tandy 1000A - DOS 6.22, setup in the closet currently - 8088 4.77Mhz, TGA, Tandy 3-Voice, Orig …

Re: Newly made PCMCIA sound card

I don't see a reason to stop with the project at all if that's what you want to do. It's just confusing because the thread starts with "New PCMCIA Sound Card" and now were talking about a "sidecar" with more stuff to it.. This thread starts with hard1k talking about cloning a MediaVision Wavejammer …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Remember doing the same with my dx4/100 back in the day when the requirements stated pentium. Nope! That's kind of the basis of everything I do with vintage PC's. I started doing this in the early 2000's because I wanted a PC for work and play, could not afford one, started taking in 10 year old …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Then I played some ThemeHospital. I played that the first time the other night without VBE, but with it it runs even better, and I managed to basically grow to having 2 wards, 3 GPs, and a handful of Clinics in the span of about the first 30 minutes. The night before I played till I lost. I'd be …

Re: Newly made PCMCIA sound card

Have not read everything, but throwing my .02 out there....just to see what people think.... I think possibly, if we are looking at reducing/easing the project, the first thing to focus on would be OPL/Adlib compatibility first, that seems like the simplest, least fiddly, and easiest to implement in …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Got up at midnight last night to take UNIVBE for a spin on the Versa M/75...... I played through a third of Postal. It actually runs really well now. Most games have the minimum system requirements overstated, not Postal, they said "486 DX2-66 with 16MB of RAM" - even on a DX4-100 with 40MB it's …

Re: First computer-related job?

The true first job was me freelancing for "pizza-money" in 2002-2005, helping people get their computers fixed on a budget. Most of my customers were friends and co-workers through the resturant I worked at. I built systems, modified my friend's computers to run better, removed viruses manually, …

Re: Your saddest retro computer pictures, a feel bad topic

I remember seeing 30 pin SIMM keyrings at Software Etc (I think it was) in the 90's before collecting computers was a thing. I had a room mate who did that. I copied her but only used my bad SIMMS for that. Would not do that now but then that's why I have a potato chip sized anti-static bag of 30- …
