Re: PC games on consoles

in Milliways
There were a couple of different versions of Fallout and Baldur's Gate on consoles, were there not? I didn't follow that very closely, but I understood they were pretty different from the computer versions anyway. Metal Marines also comes to mind, but apparently that was a SNES game first and a …

Re: poor advice on fixing things!

in Milliways
WWYD if I told you to go check the first post for the answer ? While you know that the answer isn't in the first post (because you went through all the comments on the post), but, maybe, just maybe, you overlooked it, so you go back to check, and 'lo behold, the answer isn't there. Then I would …

Re: poor advice on fixing things!

in Milliways
Asking for advice or information on a forum and getting such a generic answer that you wonder why the person even answered, or the person directing you to another post that totally does not have the information, yet for some reason that person has an elevated status on the forum just because of the …

Re: Can’t get windows installed no matter what I try

in Windows
Okay, but what about the surface scan, then? Maybe the board is consistently failing when trying to access one particular sector for some reason. I have tried different hard drives that have worked before and after in other conputers. Yes, you mentioned that already. I am not asking whether the …

Re: muti boot idea for windows 3.x

i thought since dos needs as much as possible when running dos games and software and windows 3.x is basically a dos shell where it wasn't as integrated as windows 95 - ME Even for DOS games that use DOS extenders, conventional memory isn't necessarily as important as total memory. There are …

Re: Problems with Windows 98 SE

Does it get enabled by default in SE? By the time Windows 98 SE came out, all new or fairly new PCs had at least some level of DMA, which came along in 1994 and supplanted the PIO standard. There are surely systems where it is enabled by default and systems where it is not. The Intel Application …

Re: Problems with Windows 98 SE

I dimly recall that 98 SE does handle optimization differently from 98 FE, though I cannot recall the details. Enable DMA where? It's enabled by default in the BIOS; it enables it when it detects an 80-wire IDE cable rather than a 40-wire. DMA will not necessarily be enabled in the OS merely because …

Re: FF7 music loop bug

There is/was a patch out there to fix rendering on I think 3dfx cards.. or maybe it was for D3D. That was the Riva 128/TNT patch, which despite the name actually provided generic D3D rendering. It has been so long I forget, but it made the actual characters be 3d rendered which it had major issues …

Re: Problems with Windows 98 SE

Win9x is well-known to have problems on systems with more than 512 MB of RAM, though some systems cope with it better than others. That might well be the problem here. not even by disabling every startup item in msconfig. There are lots of clever places to hide startup items that are not covered by …

Re: Beneath a Steel Sky -- GOG release to DOS?

in DOS
If you decide to go the ScummVM route, I would recommend updating it to the latest version. The version included with the GOG release is several years old now and isn't as good as the latest version. Do you mean the latest version of ScummVM, or do you mean there is a new version of the Beneath a …

Re: FF7 music loop bug

The original windows port introduced this bug when you come out of battle the overworld music does not pick play where it left off, instead it just starts at the beginning of the song. I could have sworn that was only a problem introduced in newer ports of the game. It's not mentioned here, for …
