Re: MT-32 wavetable daughterboard exist

I don't know how effective or dependable are these so-called LA32 daughterboards. This is the first time hearing of such thing. I'm not really optimistic about it when it comes to compatibility too. Roland MT-32 ROMs are still copyrighted, and the above boards must be an enthusiast created ones in …

Re: DOSBox vs PCem vs 86Box which do you prefer?

in PC Emulation
Dosbox for "just run the game" feel, along with DBGL frontend. I just display the box shots of the games I have set up in the launcher and simply double-click the game box to run them. As for the feeling of tinkering and running DOS and games from the BIOS boot-up, down to autoexec.bat and config. …

Re: What is good puzzle design in adventure games?

in Milliways
Good puzzle design would be things that are not easy to solve but when you find the actual solution you go “How didn’t I think of that before, it makes perfect sense!”. Bad puzzles would be ones where the solution still doesn’t make much sense even after looking them up on a walkthrough or solving …

Re: Are there any more aspect ratio ultratolerant people?

in Milliways
I used to stretch all DOS graphics to max on my 37" LCD TV those days, for want to play everything "FULL"screen. Also was playing stretched full screen on my laptops and desktops. Until I realized everything's stretched too much and after comparing with 4:3 mode (selectable on TV), which is more …

Re: Best SC-55 SoundFont?

in Milliways
Stumbled upon this SC-55 -alike SoundFont, that is compatible with General MIDI (don't choose Sound Canvas option in games). As far I could tell this sounds as close to the original SC-55 that I have, and sounds better in Heretic and DOOM 2 compared to the Arachno SF that I have been using so far.

Re: DOSBox Game Launcher (DOSBox Frontend)

@overload86: haaaalp is underway @Malik: Thanks! Regarding compilation -- the only thing you need is a recent Java SE Development Kit (aka JDK, version 8 or newer) and Apache Ant and the DBGL source . Extract the source code into any folder, open up a Terminal and enter that folder, type 'ant'. …

Re: DOSBox Game Launcher (DOSBox Frontend)

Hi, rcblanke, it's time to thank you for your excellent front-end. Now that I have completely migrated from Windows to Linux, I have started using DBGL as the frontend in Linux. In Windows I am used to D-Fend Reloaded, for which there is no Linux port. Just one thing, - I prefer to compile programs …

Re: xp, 2k, nt3.5, nt4, nt5, dos 6 source and more leaked

in Milliways
Some sort of IT expert thinks that Windows has a feature as a Linux powered OS. Eric S. Raymond is a whole lot more than just "some sort of IT expert". He's also probably spent the last 20 years saying that Linux is the way of the future and I couldn't imagine him ever saying anything different. …

I think arranging the list in alphabetical order makes easier cross checking if the titles provided by the contributors are already on the list.

The Secret of Monkey Island (though they needed to be knocked out as soon as they are met - nothing violent, though). Monkey Island 2 : Le Chuck's Revenge. The dog also named Guybrush.

Re: Today is Windows 95's 25th Birthday. Share your memories.

in Milliways
Those days, I was not much knowledgable about computers that much, hardware-wise, since all I cared about were the software running on it - games, games, games and applications like Wordstar and LOGO. And did I mention games? Adventures from Sierra, Lucasfilm/Lucasarts, Simulations & Strategy from …

Re: What is your Favorite CPU and Why ?

in Milliways
I have a fondness for the intel Pentium 133 and Intel 486DX2-66. (Though I grew up with XTs and ATs, I was not much aware of the CPUs at that time, and all I cared about was the games running on it, from Zaxxon, Lode Runner to Karateka and Pit Stop.) I bought (actually asked to get for me, after …

Re: What's the "signature thing" to do after installing an OS?

in Milliways
All Windows : Show Hidden Files & Extensions of Known Types. (Don't know why MS thought hiding these was a good idea.) Newer Windows : Explorer -> Show files in LIST view Win9x : Install Microsoft Plus!. Set up my favourite Desktop Theme. Newer Windows (XP, 7) : Install MUNT. (A must for me. Can't …
