Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

What sample rate do others use for the following settings in the config file : dosbox mixer= mt32.rate= fluid.samplerate= oplrate= gusrate= pcrate= tandyrate= At the moment I have all the above set at 49716. If I set the correct rates to stop any sample rate conversion, mt32.rate=32000 I get muffled …

Re: Disk cache drops performance massively

Speedsys 4.78 is not accurate, this promise controller shows 1.2GB/s transfer speed in it's disk benchmark. maybe that is the checking speed? that is not a real world value i believe why can't i edit my old post to add this there? It's not the cache speed, that is the figure it gives for the …

I get the same noise with a MS-6156 motherboard. I disabled all fans in my setup (the system runs cool enough with passive heatsinks) and run the motherboard out of the case When a throttle % setting is picked, pretty annoying coil noise comes from the motherboard mosfet area. Disabling the L1 cache …
