Re: Best music in DOOM2 with AWE64 in Win98

I tried loading both of them, but it turns out my AWE64 only has 512kb of RAM so they wouldn't fit. Can you post a photo of the card? All AWE64 Gold models should come with 4 MB of RAM. https://s3.amazonaws.com/gigabitps/CT4520.JPG Don't know why I thought it was the Gold version. Guess I'll have …

Re: Best music in DOOM2 with AWE64 in Win98

Not sure if you tried this already, but here are some basic tips: In Doom2 setup, select "General Midi" for music playback Assuming you have the AWE Control Panel installed, select "User synth" then click "Browse" and load the GM35REVC.SF2 soundfont (found on the AWE64 Gold driver CD ) This should …

Best music in DOOM2 with AWE64 in Win98

I have a vivid memory of seeing DOOM2 run on a friend's computer with AWE32 and the music being vastly better then my SB16 I have built a Pentium 200 retro PC with an AWE64 ISA Gold running Win98se and although I can hear a difference from the music on SB16 it's not the quantum leap I remember.

But here I only piped the output and then used system() for the cli command. So I think I understand the windows example you linked. The problem …

Re: 4DOS Color Prompt?

Think of it like 'skinning' the console. Wouldn't this replace 4DOS or COMMAND.COM? My memory may be playing tricks on me, but I remember it as a batch program. Would you be able to take over stdin/out from a batch? It's been a while since I've coded console apps, and then I've primarily used …

Re: 4DOS Color Prompt?

Alternatively, there were various CLI programs and DOS alternatives (like 4DOS) which can act as a shell over stdin, stdout etc and simply pipe to stdout or invoke dos commands. Perhaps one of these was used as that could present a prompt numerous different ways. Sounds like a straight forward …

Re: 4DOS Color Prompt?

As for what your friend may have had... maybe a TSR which can be used to callback and change the prompt silently? ... I don't even know if this is possible? I was thinking something similar. One thing to note, the prompt I'm referring to wasnt a simple "prompt" command. It was a larger bat file …
