Re: Was Deus Ex rough on contemporary hardware?

Turns out that Unreal Engine games (the ones I've tested at least: both Deus Ex and Rune) default V-Sync to on in Glide mode. Turning it off helps quite a bit. I bought some parts to put a new old PC together so this Celeron will soon be doomed to my closet (or until I find something else to do with …

Re: Tualatin/GeForce 3 build

As it is, it can run almost all games I want, but I'd like to be able to run any Quake 3-based game (Jedi Outcast, Call of Duty, etc) at 1600x1200@60FPS. Technically a GeForce 4 Ti4200 or Ti4600 would still be period correct (Pentium 3@1.4 GHz was released in 2002) while Ti4600 would probably …

Was Deus Ex rough on contemporary hardware?

I first played Deus Ex in 2006 on a system much newer than the game so I historically have never had issues running it maxed out, but recently I installed it on a much older PC I acquired (an HP Pavilion with a Celeron 600 that I also added a PCI Voodoo3 2000 to) and with the latest official 3dfx …

Is there a way to lock window size in windowed mode?

Many DOS games change resolutions when the need arises: for example, an FMV might run at a different resolution as the actual game, whose resolution may differ from the game's menu screens. In windowed mode, changes in resolution also resize the window. Is there a way to make DOSBox run in a window …

Re: Installing a Voodoo3 2000 killed my SB PCI 16?

Update: I did a clean reinstall. I installed the sound drivers first, then the video drivers. Afterward, I still had sound. Then, I installed 3dfx Tools. After restarting again, I lost sound. After restarting again again, my monitor decided it couldn't find a video signal. This is a completely …

Re: Installing a Voodoo3 2000 killed my SB PCI 16?

I swapped it back to the Geforce 4 MX 4000 that was in it before and while it at least saw the card it asked for a driver CD that I didn't have, and referred to the card as something other than what it used to (AudioPCI as opposed to PCI 16), so now I'm just gonna try a complete format/reinstall. …

Installing a Voodoo3 2000 killed my SB PCI 16?

First off I just want to say I have no idea if the two things in the title are really related but they did happen in immediate sequence. I got a 3dfx Voodoo3 2000 PCI in the mail yesterday and installed it. The video card and drivers installed fine. However, after rebooting, no sound would play from …

Re: Not sure what PCI graphics card to get

get all of the PCI video cards This ends up what you usually do when you try to get good 3d acceleration on a PCI only K6-2 PC. Then you hate your options anyway and start hunting for a cheap AGP SS7 board so you can use a relatively cheaper Voodoo 3 3000 AGP with it. I have yet to find one. Yeah, …
