Re: Voodoo 3 PCI Black screen stopped posting

It would be shame to just throw the V3 away without exhausting all the possibilities. :) I did this repair many years ago. At the time I didn't have any flash programmer, so I only used the 3dfx flash tool. My soldering skills are not that good, so I asked a friend to desolder the old chip and put …

Re: Voodoo 3 PCI Black screen stopped posting

There is a chance the video BIOS got corrupted. It happened to me once on a Banshee card. You can try the V3 as a secondary VGA and see if it gets detected on the PCI bus. If yes, then you can try to reflash it. That may work, but also possible the flash chip is damaged and can't be flashed again. …

Re: Voodoo 3 1000 Questions

Swapping the regulators won't help - they are adjustable and therefore the same on both cards. Just with different output settings for V3 1000 and 3000. The settings are determined by resistors. Check the datasheet. https://www.digchip.com/datasheets/parts/data … Z1582CM-pdf.php

Re: Voodoo 3 1000 Questions

As far as I know, there is no V3 3000 AGP with SGRAM memory. So the only choice is to modify the current BIOS. Also the V3 1000 is not exacly great overclocker, IIRC it runs at lower voltage than 2k or 3k. So it may not hit 166 MHz at all.

Re: ITX DOS & Windows98 mini PC

After patching the Jazz Jackrabbit runs. The scrolling looks a bit funky... but As I have never played that game, I can't tell what is normal and what is considered wrong. Also I have the X2GS connected and running. So from hardware point of view, I consider this build finished. 😀 Filename x2gs- …

Re: ITX DOS & Windows98 mini PC

Wondering about S3 unichrome recently as several thin clients seem to have them. If you have them in shareware even, does Jazz Jackrabbit and Commander Keen 4 run on it ok? There seems to be some kind of horizontal scrolling problem with Commander Keen 4. Jazz Jackrabbit doesn't run at all (runtime …

Re: ITX DOS & Windows98 mini PC

Yes, DVI is possible with this board. But As you said, most likely impossible to find that addon. PCI riser is one of these generic chinese ones. But there are multiple types and you must get the right one - the taller type. Also wach out for left and right risers. Luckily for you, I can point you …

Re: ITX DOS & Windows98 mini PC

Thanks, I am glad you like it 😀 Yes, I played Stargunner for a while and about hour of One Must Fall 2097. And also some quick testing of Duke 3D, Doom and Wolfenstein 3D to test the audio system. I am still waiting for the X2GS, which I will plug in soon and then I will enjoy the perfect MIDI.

Re: ITX DOS & Windows98 mini PC

And now the hardest part. I really like to design and 3d print my own case. This way I can make it much smaller than regular cases you can buy and it still fits all the needed HW. This time I decided to take a different approach and the "box" consists of only two pieces (instead of six). It is more …

ITX DOS & Windows98 mini PC

I have a new project here, this one was rather quick - only took about two months to build. The goal here was to build as small as possible DOS PC with good overal compatibility. So I started looking for some VIA based ITX boards in order to have chipset compatible with ESS Solo. Initially I planned …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

Regarding the PCI-E compatibility. I can confirm now that VisionRGB-E2S works fine on ASRock B450 Pro4 + Ryzen 9 5900X. Well, at least one channel does, So far I had no time to test the other one... but the PCI-E -> PCI-X bridge definitely works.
