Re: vintage budget cards instead of 'good' cards

Another potential advantage of newer ones - if you're not using an old CRT: DVI port. For trouble-free late DOS builds an FX5200 with DVI is hard to beat. This does provide an advantage in terms of image quality, but some of the older cards can't do more than 60 Hz over DVI. Since most DOS games …

Re: Not so crazy idea : using a Raspberry Pi 4 with jackd , Zita A2J bridge and jack_mixer to make a software S/PDIF mix

I just tested one of the ADS Tech Instant Music devices in Loopback with a U2 (both through Pipewire and JACK/Zita). I also did a recording test of an RMAA generated test file . The results are virtually identical to those with a CM6206 in all cases, which is not unexpected . On another note, having …

Re: Not so crazy idea : using a Raspberry Pi 4 with jackd , Zita A2J bridge and jack_mixer to make a software S/PDIF mix

I ran a Pipewire vs JACK/ZITA comparison . The results are interesting, IMHO. pipewire_jack_vs_jack_plus_zita.png Referring only to quality/transparency : - All sink and source devices in Pipewire were set to 44.1KHz as was Pipewire's master sample rate - Resampler quality was set to 9 in Pipewire - …

Re: Gotek like Optical Driver Emulator - Is it possible?

Wow, thanks for the very fast response ! I actually pm-ed you regarding the image group idea because I believe that might feasible at low cost and wanted to be sure you saw that . What are your thoughts on this idea ? Apparently I can't reply here yet anyway, I must have posted too little 😊 I think …

Now I just need a tool to change which image is currently loaded, I know something is in the works, is there a beta version of the tool available? Some support is in the firmware, but it's still WIP. I can send you it to test once I get my 486 plugged in again (it has the project and I've been …

Just got my ATAPI simulator in from tattiebogle, crazy fast shipping, and it’s working in Windows 98SE! Now I just need a tool to change which image is currently loaded, I know something is in the works, is there a beta version of the tool available? I am happy for you. When you get a chance, …

Re: Creative PnP EEPROM collection

AWE32 and AWE64 tend to get corrupt EEPROMs every once in a while, making the cards unusable and while there's a software way to revive these cards you often lose some functionality since the util is for some other specific card instead. I have dumped a number of Creative PnP EEPROMs and they could …

Re: [8-Bit Guy] What Happened to America's Electronics Stores?

in Milliways
I just noticed Amazon US has been filled to the brim with no-name generic Chinese products. One day maybe people in the West will wise up and manufacture their own shit again... IMHO, that may happen when/if fully automated factories become a common reality . Location won't really matter from a …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

in Milliways
So i got a 3d printer the other day, and i'm just having a grand time with it. I printed off the dog & cat that was on the cf card that came with my printer. An Ender 5 pro, btw. be warned, the 3rd print is "technically" not safe for work. So if your sense of humor is lacking, don't click the 3rd …
