Re: Tell us about your 3DFX collection

I just have a single Voodoo3 2000 AGP which I bought second-hand way back in 2002. IIRC, I paid around 30 EUR back then (maybe less?) and only got it because I never had a Voodoo card at the height of their popularity and wanted to see how Glide looked in Deus Ex. I only used that card for a short …

Re: AthlonXP + GeForce4 build

Well, it looks like I found a use case for gaming under Windows 2000 on this rig. I just learned that Splinter Cell has issues on cards newer than a GeForce4 . Originally,I had planned to replay that game on my higher specced WinXP rig, but it looks like I might have to settle for slightly lower …

Re: Best way to get win98 / winXP games?

From my experience, GOG installers work fine on WindowsXP + SP3. Some games may need extra stuff like "Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable" to work, but you can usually download offline installers for that. Personally, I like to keep my XP build completely offline for security reasons, so GOG …

Re: Another builds discussion

I ever need it, I think the Audigy 2 ZS also has decent SB16 DOS compatibility? It's ok most of the time, but I did notice sound crackling/echoing in a couple of games like WarCraft2 and Quake. You can also use it as a soundfont loader for General MIDI music in DOS games that run under the Win98 …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Playing through Diablo II LoD on a Voodoo3, I've noticed that the game never stutters when "streaming in" data. I remember this being an issue with Direct3D cards even on a much more powerful machine. I'm not using an SSD mind you, just a plain old 80GB Maxtor HDD. The game simply runs super smooth …
