Re: 4GB SD cards may not work in SDHC devices

in Milliways
There were some manufacturers that did disregard the specifications. I recall many people asking about specific brands and cards for camera's and old school MP3 players and there were quite some offerings. Still available it seems: https://www.memoryx.com/ts4gsdc.html

Re: VRAM vs DRAM

Is it Doom's Mode Y that benefits from SGRAM? I compared my G200 (SDRAM) and Savage4 (SGRAM) and they have similar performance. With Doom the G200 is around 2 frames faster than the Savage4, but the Savage4 feels smoother.

Re: Dead Ebay VGA to HDMI scaler, repair attempt

That unit seems to have a lot in common with the Gefen VGA to HDMI scaler, the manual seems to indicate the same. If it's the same, quality should be really good. Try pressing the + and - buttons to reset the device. When not connected to power for a long time it sometimes outputs a signal that my …

Re: Dead Ebay VGA to HDMI scaler, repair attempt

Do you have any idea which exact model this is? I have a Cypress scaler but it's not so good. Scaling quality is bad, black levels are incorrect and everything is stretched to 1920 pixels. Also, Hz in == Hz out with mine, so if you output 70 Hz and tend to use this on a LCD which is limited to 60 Hz …

Re: Graphics card for Pentium Pro build

Are these utilities for use in Windows? I thought they were mostly for DOS purposes. S3 Speed Up, for example, mentions it gets automatically disabled when booting Windows. According to the Vogons post, S3VBEFIX hasn't been tested with a Savage card. I'm using S3VBEFIX with my Savage4 under DOS and …

Re: Graphics card for Pentium Pro build

Very nice! Didn't think the Savage4 would do well compared to the GeForce 2 MX400. The Dark Forces 2 Matrox result really stands out, not sure what is going on there. You might get to squeeze a tid bit more performance out of the Savage4 with Blood by using S3VBEFIX /B+. I would have expected the …

Re: GUS PnP clone (AM78C201AKC) issue in MSDOS demos

That's impressive! You have a TOSLINK header on your GUS clone? That is awesome! Did you rule out the ISA timing issues like 640K!enough mentioned? Attached you'll find the XM files used by the demo. I would try those both in Impulse Tracker with the Interwave driver and FastTracker with classic GUS …

Re: Which card should I pair with GUS?

gdjacobs wrote: That Jazz16 chipset isn't PAS or PAS16 compatible. Hmm, PAS compatibility would be my main reason to pick this card. Reading about it and seeing the issues it has with Windows compatibility and DB headers I would choose the AZT2320 instead if accurate OPL3 is your thing.

Re: Which card should I pair with GUS?

Is the Jazz16 card you have PAS16 compatible? AFAIK there were some issues there with some cards, same with the Sound Blaster Pro compatibility. If it's compatible with both, that would be my pick. Two non-Creative 16-bit audio standards in one system with good DOS support.

Re: GUS PnP clone (AM78C201AKC) issue in MSDOS demos

Unfortunately I don't have a Interwave card to test. With the Fulcrum supporting the Interwave, I would suspect that the SGMI bit is being set correctly. But around 3:45 mark you posted it seems a new track is being played... So it might be the playback routine. Edit: tested the demo on my machine …

Re: GUS PnP clone (AM78C201AKC) issue in MSDOS demos

Slow memory can lead to noise AFAIK, but that doesn't seem to be the issue here. The TEA6330T fader on the Compaq cards caused incompatibilities for that card, but that doesn't seem to be the case either. Do games run correctly? And software like Impulse Tracker? Can you try to run ULTRINIT for GF1 …

Re: No-name ES688F card: Time to ditch it?

As cyclone3d said it's probably the jumpers. If you don't have the manual that came with the card it's going to be a pain. Perhaps this will help: https://arvutimuuseum.ee/th99/i/I-L/51695.htm Your card does have a lot going for it if it works properly; "true" OPL3, SB Pro support, wavetable header …
