Re: Is this a fake Lemmings disk?

2. I tried to mount it on my linux computer using a USB floppy drive and it couldn't read it. Putting it in my 720k drive on a real DOS computer works just fine. 3. I initially tried to run the game using the "CGA" and "IBM PS/2" options because I'm running it on a IBM PS/2 with the onboard MCGA …

Re: ET4000AX variants

the ramdac was originally a look up table to convert 256 palette colours into R/G/B values. once you leave 8bpp your leaving half the function of the chip behind. In other words, RAMDAC in modes greater than 8-bpp doesn't use the RAM section, only the DAC. Not necessarily. In 15/16bpp modes, you …

Re: Best and worst sound cards you have ever owned?

I was surprised to see the AD1816-based cards get so much hate. I bought one (a board called TT-AD1816, likely a OEM edition of the Terratec Base 1) in 2000 for 10€ or less new, and it worked like a charm in linux, with arbitrary sample rates between 5kHz and 55kHz, and even full duplex. The DOS PnP …

Re: Do you want an EGA monitor?

And what exactly speaks against 60Hz in a 400 line mode (or scan-doubled 200 line mode) on a VGA card? Wouldn't that be what you get when you use the 480 line mode's sync settings? I once had a TSR that enabled to do things like just this. I used it to play 200/350/400 line games where the 286-12 …

Re: What is this empty socket for?

Usually, an empty socket on late MDA/CGA clones is meant to take a character ROM that can be used instead of the integrated CP437 ROM. Thanks. Is this just for foreign languages? Or are there roms with graphics characters available? I never heard of alternate DOS fonts ("codepages") with more …

Re: What is this empty socket for?

Usually, an empty socket on late MDA/CGA clones is meant to take a character ROM that can be used instead of the integrated CP437 ROM. The integrated graphics chips usually has a pin that chooses between internal and external ROM. If the manufacturer of your card invested into a DIP socket for the …

Re: How to modyfy SOYO SY-4SAW2 to take Lithium Cell, instead of Nickel rechargeable. Bios upgrading.

Now, I was putting together a diagram and noticed that after going thorough the resistor, the +5v line also goes to other components, aren't those components expecting the +5v line that has been cut off? I was able to trace that to a couple of tantalum caps and from there to a resistor array, I …

Re: Device (s) using this INT: PR...

Why am i getting this error upon boot? And how do i fix it? This question has too little context to get a good answer. It looks like the beginning of a status message, followed by some garbage characters. If your systems hangs at that point, it most likely crashed, and the garbage characters are …
