Early Linux gaming

Ok, I've switch to Linux in 2015 and even then, I was blown away that so many games were running great via Wine (some of them even better than on modern Windows) and by now things still improved significantly thanks to Proton. Question is - how was it back in the day? I mean, starting with early-mid …

Re: Best OS for Ibook G4?

I'v been testing a lot of different OS and have finally chosen the winner. MorphOS - it hurts it's not free and licencing fee is too hight but it's blazing fast & and lean, light on resources and last time I checked it I underestimated its gaming capalitiblies. With Yamagi Quake 2, Mame and modern …

Re: DOSBox-X branch

I cannot run 3dfx-patched version of Blood 1 on DosBox-X. I applied patch with no error, put glide2x.ovl in the game's directory and all I get is 'Fatal Error' - unable to load DLL'. Can anybody make a short, step by step tutorial how to setup Dosbox-X for this game?

BetaC wrote on 2022-01-09, 09:34: What do you mean by that? do you mean full screen games/apps running in a small window? If so, that's not uncommon for classic Mac OS applications. No, entire desktop screen is reduced to half-screen.

Re: Best OS for Ibook G4?

Have you checked to see if the system can natively boot Mac OS 9? I believe all but the post-2003 iBooks can. If yours can, I can generally recommend doing that. macos9lives has a way to get it up and running, if you google their 9.2.2 stuff. Unfortunately, even custom MacOS9 iso tailored for …

Re: Best OS for Ibook G4?

Edit: There's an interesting read at Macintosh Garden ("Tiger/Panther classicmode smooth emulation") that explains : "Jaguar plays classicmode games smoothly, Panther and Tiger can't play a lot of games due to what's been called the implementation of "double buffered" screen memory." That was …

Best OS for Ibook G4?

I'm gonna use full potential out of this machine but most of ties to leave OSX Tiger became traumatic. I want it to make gaming machine or modern OS for surfing net and stuff.

Voodoo 5 emulation

in PC Emulation
Before PCEM died there was a thread about possible graphics cards emulation. While something like first GeForce was excluded as impossible, Voodoo 5 was mentioned as hard but doable. My questions: 1. How powerful should be PC to emulate V5 (with current specs like CPU / RAM available for PCEM 17 and …

Re: Fastest emulators period

EDIT: according to https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/UAE_(emulator) , it was actually possible to usably run some stuff meant for an Amiga 500 by late 1997, but I still doubt a Pentium 1 would suffice. Back in the day, in 11/1996 issue of Polish magazine Secret Service that was a mention of working …
