Re: Why is Voodoo 3 so popular?

Mine was just something that was laying around, and I figured I'd play around with it. I love it for games that it was designed for...maybe it's just a placebo effect, but I feel like it has a different look to it in 3D applications, versus more modern cards, or wrappers.

Re: Windows 95/98 emulation/VM options?

in PC Emulation
I just use Virtual Machine or DOSBox. I've never found much joy with Glide wrappers or whatever, so I just stick with older hardware for those. Or, depending on the game, I'll just play it in software mode. Also EAX will not work i guess... Will most 95/98 games run on XP? I'm no expert, but I'm …

I went in and disabled the theme manager completely. After that, you have to use Tweak UI...I can't remember the name of the setting, but it …

Re: Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS issues.

A lot of Creative cards have this issue where, allegedly, the header information on one of the chips gets overwritten, and the card is no longer recognized. There's supposed to be a way you can rewrite the chip and disable the "write" pin to keep it from happening again, but I haven't looked into it …
