Re: Need some help with assembly language

in Milliways
You don't necessarily need to reprogram the PIT to use it for finer resolution, the first channel is normally running at ~1.2MHz already and you can read the current count from IO port 40h any time you want. The problem is that the channel mode is not configured the same on every PC so you'll …

Re: Year 2038 bug?

in Milliways
In the 2000s, many devs were all excited to switch to 64-Bit computing on Windows. I was one of them. Devs always love any kind of new 'standard' that will cause old products to be discarded and new ones to be bought. The motivation could not be more obvious. (And their portrayal of themselves in …

Re: Technically impressive FM synth music

in Milliways
Would a similar result be achievable with a YM2612 emulator and a VGM player that disabled the pcm and psg channels? Maybe using a nice quality USB soundcard for the output? The emulators are very good these days. You could even say they are better than a recording from hardware, depending on …

try this on for size http://www.hyakushiki.net/misc/du-mmx.ogg That is some High Fidelity right there! Thanks. What is the name of the track and the composer? Sigh.... I better start linking all the tracks to VGMrips.net, I guess.... ;) The song is from Boomer Kuwanger's stage in Megaman X. The MMX …

Re: What is a genuine PC?

in Milliways
Further to a discussion at work today, most PCs are actually 'PC compatibles' (as they used to be called), as a genuine PC is made by IBM, who invented (or at least came to be most associated with) the format. Is that literally correct? Are 'real' PCs still being made?If not, what were the last …

Re: Why DOS4GW games lead to higher system requirements + slower performance on 386sx

It should also be noted that running in 32-bit protected mode is a choice of the developers, and one of the biggest reasons to make that choice is needing more than 640KB of memory. It means the developers set out to make a heavier game. So the situation is more like "higher memory requirements lead …

Re: What do you drive?

in Milliways
Hit something of a milestone during a rare road trip recently. 333,333 miles on the odometer. Not really that much for a 40-year-old car though, especially considering that part of the instrument panel was replaced at one point with a junkyard part with higher mileage... if it still had the original …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

in Milliways
Finally finished downloading a bunch of "modern" games that had been steeply discounted at GOG... so I could run them on gloriously non-modern Windows 2000. Serment - Contract with a Devil (RenPy game), Mhakna Gramura and Fairy Bell (RenPy VN), PARQUET (VN), and Hyperdimension Neptunia U (an OpenGL …
