Re: Emulation of rare graphics adapters

Greetings! For example, Hercules Graphics Card (720 × 348 × 2), is emulated by the resident program msherc.com ( qbherc.com ), and the CGA modes are emulated in it hgcibm.com or simcga.com , and some ohters ( 320 × 200 × 2 or 620 × 200 × 2). Hercules InColor Card is emulated as well? Interested in …

Re: Quake 1/2 + ATI Rage XL + 80486

in Windows
I suppose it's like running Doom II on a 386DX 40Mhz and the best ISA video card.. it can be done but it becomes a sort of lab experiment and not really a realistic gaming config. Pretty much, except the Rage XL isn't exactly the best 3D card for a 486 . EDIT: That and a 386DX40 is actually above …

Re: Quake 1/2 + ATI Rage XL + 80486

in Windows
As a baseline of sorts, an AMD Athlon XP 1800+ @ 2166 MHz (12x 180) gets about 32fps in GLQuake and 29fps in Quake 2 using a Rage XL at 640x480 in 16-bit color . I wouldn't set my hopes too high for a 486 at 133MHz with the same video card. http://hw-museum.cz/article/2/benchmark-vga-1998---2001-- …

Re: Here's an idea: using high endurance (micro)SD cards meant for continuous video recording as storage for retro gear

I tried and apparently succeeded in setting drive capacity of a 250GB Samsung 860 EVO to 128GB using [1] and unplugging/plugging the drive in a USB enclosure (apparently not recommended to use one of those) . Drive capacity went from [2] to [3] . I was also able to reverse the operation by setting …

Re: Partially fried MB

Do you have a multimeter ? I would measure the PSU's voltage rails with the PC powered on, but without any valuable ISA or PCI cards plugged in . What brand/model PSU are you using ? Do you have a spare to test with ? Do you know what component(s) burned (on the motherboard or elsewhere) ? I'm 100% …
