Re: My P3 Retro DOS PC

Plus, put the CD drivers under a menu option so you only use them if you need them. No, why? What's the purpose other than to waste your time? Is there a single documented case of a CD driver interfering with anything? Seems like only option left is to format disk as FAT16, create a bunch of 2GB …

Re: My P3 Retro DOS PC

It's extremely unlikely that anything crashes because of Win98 SE DOS , but I have heard that some DOS applications may have issues running of FAT32 partitions. Haven't tested it personally, since my Win98 SE system has FAT16 partitions for the DOS stuff, and only Windows stuff is on FAT32 …

Re: Tell us about your 3DFX collection

I have more than I know what to do with, drop me a note and I'll send you one. I'm sure you would have something I'd be interested in. :) Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. ;) I have no idea what I might have that will interest you, my retro hardware collection is nt nearly as impressive as that of …

Yeah, I go to the grocery store about once a week. Sometimes they are out of Mac&Cheese, but the Dell SBLive OEM …

Re: Need to FREE up Conventional memory.

I will have to reserve judgment, since my DOS system is currently quarantined away from me at my parents' house, so I cannot test it. However, I would not take what's written at the manual at face value. The Nerdly Pleasures blog clearly talks about CT-VOICE.DRV being a loadable driver and does not …

Re: Need to FREE up Conventional memory.

No. It's best to do what I said and remove the useless SB drivers. Some games do need EMS, but I have yet to hear of any that actually need those drivers. Which means, that even if they do exist, there are likely far far fewer of them than games that need EMS. Also, MSCDEX can use EMS to save about …

Re: Need to FREE up Conventional memory.

I edited autoexec.bat and config.sys to load everything “high” But it is not enough. How can I fix this so I can play this game ? 1. Remove the Creative drivers (CTMMSYS, CTSBPRO and SBMIDI). 2. Add /E switch to MSCDEX so that part of it loads into EMS. Problem solved. If I'm not mistaken, anything …

Re: What are the last "Windows 7" games?

in Milliways
Replace 7 with Vista and 2009 with 2007 and it will still be mostly true. Forwards compatibility is great, but backwards less so: lots of things stopped working on Vista already; not due to graphics APIs most of the time, but simply because Microsoft's tools started targeting Win7 by default, which …

Re: Doom Eternal Released

I LOVE Brutal Doom. Sure, it's not authentic, but it's more hardcore, and I think it inspired some features of Doom 2016 and Doom Eternal eg. Glory Kills When I saw the Glory Kills in Doom (2016) I also thought at first they were inspired by Brutal Doom; however, turns out the concept already …

Re: Sound Blaster Settings Keep Changing

That working state persists multiple reboots using CTRL-ALT-DEL, but NOT a power down. As soon as I do a power down, CTCM only detects 2 out of 4 devices again (still booting directly from BIOS to DOS mode). Then perhaps it's the BIOS settings. Something either in the IRQ assignment department or …
