Re: DOS file size limit

in DOS
However DOS 7.1 does NOT support fileseeks or work with files in excess of (2GB-1) because of the awful longint *signed* filesize limitation. I've been trying to find a version of DOS -- *any* version which does allow *unsigned* longint fileseeks and native support for such files of up to (4GB -1) …

Re: Cirrius logic cl-gd5428 ram upgrade.

A 66MHz 486 is extremely borderline for decoding MP3 files at the full 44kHz stereo rate. Conventional wisdom is that for full-rate MP3 decoding, a 100MHz 486 processor is recommended. I don't think it's enough. I was able to play mp3s at mono 44 kHz *or* stereo 22 kHz, but not stereo 44 kHz. Using …

Re: D201GLY2 audio not cooperating under win98se

As noted in the original post the graphic driver does indeed have a problem regarding OpenGL support in Windows 98 however its worth mentioning that GLInfo does actually detect a SiS Xabre OpenGL ICD dll and reports extensions ver 1.4 support so it may be a Quake2-specific issue. For the record the …

Re: 4:3 vs. 5:4

I guess the years with 16:9 monitor just made it hard to get used to 5:4 again. I remember going back to 4:3 after years of using 16:10 and 16:9 was very weird at the beginning. Nowadays I don't really care much as I regularly use monitors with different AR: dual 4:3 for home PC, a single 16:10 for …

Re: 4:3 vs. 5:4

I bought recently 3 20'' inch monitors, 1600x1200. There are many available where I live, paid cca 40 EURO for each of them. I am currently thinking of buying the 4th one, a DELL 2007FP as I am quite sure that these monitors will disappear from the market in the future and the LCD backlights will …

Re: 4:3 vs. 5:4

It's still mystifying to me they didn't at least define 1280x960 as a supported resolution. We could have had pixel perfect scaling, but instead we get messy, blurry upscaling and squashed aspect ratios. I remember I used 1280x960 and 1152x864 on my last CRT. So 4:3 resolutions close to 1280x1024 …

Re: Freedos 1.3

in Milliways
Basically, with UEFI the machine boots in 32 or 64 bit mode and has to do Virtual 86 mode to run 16 bit code, which as we all know always works perfectly on all the CPUs from the last decade (sarcasm) So what, small dev team is like "Yah, we'll take this on and handle 1000s of support requests on …

Re: Outlook Express 6 in 2022

I don't think it's possible at all considering changes to SSL and TLS encryption over the years and retirement of older versions... You can't use OE6 directly with most e-mail providers anymore due to old unsupported encryption. However, I did have a working setup once, using a Raspberry Pi with …
