Re: MPU-401 and MIF-IPC-B question

Yep that's my issue...I assumed my cable was straight pin to pin, but it isn't when I tested continuity...I opened it up and it only has 11 cables, and even those aren't pin to pin but all over the place. no idea what shit cable i got, it was advertised on ebay as a DB25 male-to-male cable and I …

Re: MPU-401 and MIF-IPC-B question

you must be right as always...assumed all cables would be the same but the pinout seems weird in my cable... i'll figure out a proper cable and try again! thanks! JFYI I used a simple DB25 extension cord and a gender changer at one end and it works perfectly fine. Extension cord must be straight …

Re: EISA Graphics / Video Cards

My theory why EISA cards perform poorly in DOS is that in order to use the benefits of EISA the app must be doing 32bit writes. When doing 8/16bit writes as is common in DOS the EISA …

Re: EISA Graphics / Video Cards

I have Winner 1000 too. The one with S3-928 and both EISA and ISA connector. Funny thing is that at least in DOS there seems to be almost no difference between ISA and EISA configuration. In fact ISA seems to be a hair faster for stuff like DOOM framerate. On the other hand in Windows the EISA has …

Re: EISA Graphics / Video Cards

Elsa Winner 1000 and 2000 (never seen one for sale) are just too $$$$$$$$$ for my tastes. The Mach32s were by far just absolute luck....one was on forsale website half way across the world and the other a misnamed Ebay auction. And the ET4000ax...well...I really can't remember where I got it. It …
