Re: Your Mothership PC Components

This is bringing some memories of my old systems back! The first computer we had was a P1 - a family computer so don’t know much about it. First computer I owned myself was a Dell Optiplex GX110 I think, with a PII. Was really fond of that computer and quite gutted when a family member threw it out, …

Re: 486 eBay pickup - new project!

Have been messing around with my Dreamblaster X2GS and it's absolutely great, the GS bank feels just perfect for a 90s MIDI experience. The Buran bank sounds incredible (for MIDI) in terms of realism but just doesn't seem to fit with retro games as nicely. Yet to play around with any other sound …

Re: 486 eBay pickup - new project!

Ordered a Dreamblaster X2GS for this today - been going back and forth on it and finally decided to splash out on one so very excited for that. Also ordered the "Chill & Phil" adapter so that it can be plugged into a soundcard gameport and not just a Waveblaster header on the card - this will allow …

Re: 486 eBay pickup - new project!

At the moment still running 4MB RAM - the 64MB kit arrived and when it got here it turned out to be EDO. Tried it out anyway but looks like the board isn't going to play ball with it - checked the ad and I just ordered the wrong thing so now waiting on a non-EDO kit to try. D’oh. I have a CL 5428 …

Re: 486 eBay pickup - new project!

I think I’m sticking to 3.1 on it, it’s kind of fun and different working with it and it’s more appropriate to the hardware. At the moment it’s a DX2-66 in there which I think is decent enough considering I’ve got my P233 system for more demanding stuff. I’ll get some photos of the trace repairs up …

Re: 486 eBay pickup - new project!

I feel like the 486 would do fine in windows 95 to be honest, I’ve run it before on a P75 with 16MB and that was actually really snappy so I’d be hoping at least usable (with the additional ram). I’ve tinned most of the exposed traces but need to pull the board back out anyway so I’ll do the rest …
