Re: My Big Red Switch 486

I tried it just now and it has no effect, unfortunately. :( Thanks for the effort to fix these games, it's appreciated. It's the same whether the game's just loaded or jumping around in the game itself, flipping the alternate video mode on and off. Just a black screen and some vertical lines and …

Re: My Big Red Switch 486

So regarding the performance of LGR's build (I'm a big fan, btw) - you really shouldn't look at it as reference level. The Doom demo on the video runs at 28.0 fps (2664 realtics) after the Pentium upgrade. People have actually posted faster results than that with 486DX2-66's. There are DOS games …

Re: My Big Red Switch 486

Cool. I've only seen the case once aside from mine. It was listed on a local auction site here. It's a very fast VLB card, so perfect for the CPU. Haven't had many compatibility issues... The first issue I've ran into is with Crystal Caves - just no luck whatsoever getting a picture. Keen games work …

Re: My Big Red Switch 486

One of the best things about a real steel DOS machine is that you get to experience different sound cards. Each of the three sound cards and the external module is quite clearly preferable to an AWE64 Gold for their own set of games/demos/tracks. My choice here is to leave the cleanest SB16/AWE …

Here's my scan of the controller's documentation for anyone interested: manual_eide2300plus.zip The back of the box sure promise s™ a lot... https://i.imgur.com/AEcBW5Nh.jpg Show us the PATA to CF adapters of chinese and one that is fastest (photos)? Cheers, https://i.imgur.com/nqhxj05.jpg https:// …

Re: My Big Red Switch 486

Massive transfer speed boost from simply changing CF adapters, going from one random eBay adapter from China to another. MWDMA works now and it's a significant difference from the fastest PIO configurations available on the EIDE2300Plus. https://i.imgur.com/yXwpdtNl.jpg (Zero difference in non- …

Re: My Big Red Switch 486

I am confused about the section about the vesa local bus multi-io controllers. Both vesa local bus controllers with dedicated bios are crap? They are not even a tiny bit faster (in IDE transfer) than an ISA controller? So you use now the ISA controller, right? I am using the non-caching …

Some results from overclocking... Overclocked to 3x40MHz: Doom 51.1 fps (1461 realtics) Superscape 3D Bench 1.0c 85.3 fps PC Player Bench 27.0 Quake 13.2 fps (73.2 sec) https://i.imgur.com/bDqKEVGl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/EhMmgswl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/o4cQGtZl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/dVpVhC8l.jpg …

Re: My Big Red Switch 486

No, GUS doesn't do intelligent mode. I'm using the SCC-1's MPU interface for MIDI. The MIDI Adaptor is mainly useful for splitting the GUS gameport for two controllers here. Very nice. That’s more of a 1994 build. I can down clock my 486dx4-100 to a 286@10mhz using the turbo switch and Setmul …
