Re: Unreal 1.0 crashes on VooDoo 3

in Windows
I wonder why People buy extreme Rare and expensive Win98 Hardware, when all this Games also work on XP with cheap Hardware. Because Aureal Vortex 2 works in Win98 and not Win XP. I paid a lot of money for my XP machine, paid for it all with my first real job, but I'm not sure if I spent any money …

Re: Force 320x200(ish) VGA text mode

I found this assembly code the other day for switching DOS video modes: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?p=913917#p913917 So I compiled one version for each video mode: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?p=1089796#p1089796 ...yes, having one executable with a command line to select the mode …

Re: DOS Shell/OS in 320x200?

Re: DOS Shell/OS in 320x200?

MODE0D ? is that the same as running " mode co40 "? Nope. MODE0D: 320x200 16 color graphics (EGA,VGA) Your command just changes the number of columns, not the screen resolution. I can upload these if you want to play with them. Like I said, I'm pretty sure there are other programs that can do this …

Re: DOS Shell/OS in 320x200?

Not 100% ideal, but for now, I've cooked up a BAT file that will automatically run MODE0D, run games (or whatever), PAUSE on exit (so you can read games that have custom quit messages), then return to page 1 of the launcher.

Re: DOS Shell/OS in 320x200?

Well I did eventually get GEM running properly in 320x200 VGA (albiet with some slight glitches in the splash screen of GEM3), so that's fun. Works fine in PC DOSBox. Probably works fine in real DOS too, but did not test. Did not test Wii DOSBox. DSx86, if I try running a game through it (just …

DOS Shell/OS in 320x200?

Maybe I'm just not using the right search terms, but there has to be some kind of file browser out there that runs in 320x200 (or 240) video mode, right?? Nothing fancy, just something similar to DOSShell or Norton Commander. It would be very useful for things like CRT televisions, or DOS emulators …

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. It's also a great card for …

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 …
