Re: Is my IBM 300GL PC compatible with a Voodoo2?

If the Voodoo 1 worked, the Voodoo 2 should also work, I also did some tests with a Chinese Rage XL on it. A Voodoo card is perfect for these computers because the integrated graphics card is already good enough for 2D. I was very sad when the Voodoo 1 died. :( On my 300gl, the hardest part was to …

Re: Is my IBM 300GL PC compatible with a Voodoo2?

I also have a 300gl 6282 with a Pentium MMX 200 and I used a voodoo 1 with no problems for some days but from one day to the other the card died, in my case I think it was the power supply because my DMM was reading 3,61v on the 3.3v line that is connected to the PCI/ISA riser. I already tried to …

In my country it is said like this "ignorance of a norm does not exempt you from complying with it". That is, breaking a law without knowing it does not free you from legal consequences.

I too have those issues with controls and I really hate coming across PC games that seem to prioritize gamepads; maybe I'm old fashioned but in my head the main controls for a computer are keyboard, mouse and joystick. The games that I found that prioritized the gamepad, I returned them instantly, I …

I see Vogons as more dedicated to x86 and x86-64 based hardware, I believe that only compatible PCs have the level of backwards compatibility, and the almost infinite level of customization, which is so much enjoyed and talked about in this forum. I don't know much about the Apple environment but I …

I would consider the download size issue to be normal. the same could be said in 2012 with respect to 2002 and in 2002 with respect to 1992, well in this case maybe a little less. It has always been that way, and it will continue to be. A texture from a current game occupies what all the textures …
