Re: Great soundcard audio!

in Milliways
they’re of an era that just sounded so great, before developers started streaming audio directly off CD/DVD. Half-life 1 – great sound design But this is literally what Half-Life is. It's all PCM audio clips played with music provided in the form of Red Book CD audio. o.O Fair Enough. Still great …

Great soundcard audio!

in Milliways
I’m a big fan of retro hardware and games, but I particularly like the sound aspect. Some games have great music, some great sound effects, or some just great sound design in general. I have a soft spot for the AWE32 and the MT-32, they’re of an era that just sounded so great, before developers …

Re: AGP Pro and Voodoo 5 voltages

Thanks, I knew there was something I'd missed, it's an ASUS TUSL2-C There were 4 bulging capacitors which I replaced. After some thought I think I'm going to put the V5 in the motherboard which was initially mentioned, seems more period 'correct'. Thanks, J

Re: AGP Pro and Voodoo 5 voltages

So whilst I have the attention of such a knowledgeable group, if I chose to put the V5-5500 into my Socket 370/Tualatin 1.4GHz/Intel 815EP/ASUS TUSL2-C/Universal AGP PC is that going to be good with the 3.3V too? Edit: Added motherboard model which I had omitted.

Re: AGP Pro and Voodoo 5 voltages

Good reminder on the PSU! The one in this build is a thermaltake 430W, less than six months old, I've got a spare molex available (I think the molex are on the 5V rail, right?), rails are: +3.3V@20A, +5V@24A, +12V1@14A, +12V2@15A, -12V@0.3A, +5VSB@2A Should be good??

Re: AGP Pro and Voodoo 5 voltages

I agree the manual does state the motherboard supports AGP 2x. But I still want to test ;) I dug around in my parts box and I've got a Radeon 7000 AGP, and a Radeon 7500 AGP. These have both the 1.5V and the 3.3V notches so I'm assuming these can run on either voltage and arent't a good test. I can …

Re: AGP Pro and Voodoo 5 voltages

Totally agree with not putting the V5 at risk, kolderman, but don’t really want to risk the mobo either, not a fan of ‘Try it, and see if I fry it’. :) It looks like I have a number of options: 1. Know for certain if the board will handle a V5 @ 3.3V - igna78’s post confirms it is - thanks 2. Use …

Re: AGP Pro and Voodoo 5 voltages

In my original message I stated: 'ASUS CUV4X-M branded as a Medion 2001 with an AGP-Pro slot' Upon digging, I think I'm slightly off, I should have said: 'ASUS CUV4X-C M branded as a Medion 2001 with an AGP 4x Slot' Looking at the diagram above, the slot appears to be an AGP Universal (non-pro). …

AGP Pro and Voodoo 5 voltages

Hi All, I have a Pentium 3 system with a Voodoo 3 PCI, and I’m upgrading it to a Voodoo 5 AGP I remember back when I had a V5 that there are some different voltages available on the different AGP iterations. I believe the Voodoo 5 AGP is a 3.3V card. My motherboard is an ASUS CUV4X-M branded as a …

Re: ATi Rage 128 Pro on Windows 98

All, Thanks so much for the help and suggestions. I'm working through them sequentially. First thing I did was install a newer version of DirectX straight of the original Call of Duty CD. I've now got DX 9.0b (which I'm surprised works on this card), but things seem to work now, I can run 3Dmark 99 …

ATi Rage 128 Pro on Windows 98

Hi, I added a Rage128 Pro to a windows 98 PC and I'm having all sorts of troubles. Main issue is when trying to launch 3Dmark 99, it tells me 'no 3d hardware detected' dxdiag (DX6.1a) lets me run direct draw tests, but not direct 3d. I'm on my 3rd reinstall of windows, as the drivers (from the AMD …
