Re: Disk cache drops performance massively

No, it isn't. After copying 2 times to NUL, the file is completely in disk cache. But the performance is still horrible. Yest it's. Re-read what I have written. Disk cache performance is not (only) about bulk file copies... Anyway, how a 130 MB file could be 'completely in disk cache' under DOS …

Re: Disk cache drops performance massively

Hi, I have the feeling that the title of this thread is a little misleading. Generally it's true that "caching drops bulk COPY performance". It's not only true in case of disk caches but caches in general. Caching relies on the principle of locality (temporal/spatial). Caching in general works well …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

I recently watched this video where youtuber LGR is trying to run duke nuken in dos 6.22 on a newer machine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bS9hiSwL1KY He can't get the VESA drivers to work, but some other driver worked fine. Actually what LGR experienced in the video with his Geforce 980 is a …

Re: Help Excluding Memory Range Using EMM386

1. You do not need EMM386 loaded to run Win3.1(1).

So the required segment that …

Re: Illegal Commands

If I'm counting it right 'WordSlinger' is also more than 8 characters long so it's definitely not a valid DOS executable name. I do not know this game specifically but if 'WordSlinger.exe' is the name of the main executable of the game then it's 100% sure that it is not a DOS game. Also if something …

Re: How to enable Gravis Ultrasound on Doom

I downloaded the files from here: https://mega.nz/#!PUAwXJgK!Mw9M7YUqEWtZPhxAcA8400BvZ6Of4rkIwEhAg0cGoWc The I changed the dosbox config file like this and moved the drivers to the folder ULTRASND. gus=true gusrate=44100 gusbase=240 gusirq=5 gusdma=3 ultradir=C:ULTRASND I does not work. "ultradir …

Re: sound blaster audigy 2 zs and dos games?

It does work for me as I can easily hear the difference when I switch between the Arachno and FluidSynth soundfonts when I run Doom and Duke 3D using General Midi. Maybe your setup is different. Just out of curiosity: What do you hear when you select Sound Blaster as music device (instead of …
