Re: Best CGA & Hercules games

Adding a new one to the mix! Planet X3 :). It runs in various modes including Hercules and CGA. I enjoyed playing the game for a while and it runs really smooth on an XT. Excellent piece of programming (in assembly!). Also nice to have a game that can utilize the Adlib soundcard which really …

Re: Bought these games today

in Milliways
Great stuff BeginnerGuy! Love the retailbox 😀. I played Sigil today, too. Liked it a lot! Sigil won't run on the original DOS Doom. Even the 'Compat'-WAD is too complex.

Re: Duron cpus

They are quite different. The Duron 1300 is based on the 0.18 micron Morgan core and uses a 100MHz (DDR200) FSB. The Duron 1300 will practically run on any socket A motherboard you can find. The Duron 1400 is based on the 0.13 micron Applebred core and uses a 133MHz (DDR266) FSB. It will require a …

Re: Best CGA & Hercules games

Thanks a lot, everyone! Screenshots are a lovely idea, I will do some, taken from a real hardware (just need to dig it out T3100 as well, specially for you Thandor!). @Thandor - Arctic Adventure, I remember that! Paganitzu looks pretty weird, need to check that one. I couldn't resist taking the …

Re: Best CGA & Hercules games

Re: 400FSB Athlon XPs

The 200MHz (DDR400) FSB versions were not "the ones to have" in my opinion. In the golden days one would have a 1600+ to 2000+ with 133MHz (DDR266) or a 2600+ Thoroughbred or 2800/3000+ Barton with 166MHz (DDR333) FSB. The faster FSB on the high-end models didn't improve much IMHO (and the other way …

Re: P4 5.5V AGP?

In case you want to run a Pentium 4 with a 3.3V AGP slot you can look into motherboards that use the SiS 645DX chipset like ABIT SA7 and DFI SIS 645DX. All boards with the 645DX chipset are able to run a 133MHz (QDR533) front side bus. I have no hands-on experience with the motherboards I mentioned …
