Re: Games you bought that bored you

Suprisingly, the first Age of Wonders bored me to death. Probably because each individual turn is WAY too short (there's not much you can do in a single turn), while it takes forever to wait for the AIs to finish their turn! That's too bad, because AoW is supposed to be the remake of Master of Magic …

Re: Forum rules?

MiniMax wrote: I don't know. Why would we need rules? So far, the board appears to work fine without them. I have to admit that this is the very first forum I've ever seen that does not impose any rules, and still goes well. 😀

Forum rules?

Well, usually in a discussion forum, there's always a "forum rules" thread (like this or this, but I haven't found any here. So what are the rules? For instance, is posting picture of boobs (or otherwise mild porn) allowed? How about swear words? Etc. Thanks,

Re: Use of multiconfiguration under Win98

That is true. But do you have any ideas for "reactivating" a multiconfiguration? You mean selecting which O/S to boot through a menu of some sort? In order to do so, you'll need a boot manager. However.... So, I booted from the Win 98 CD, deleted the primary DOS-partition (FAT 16), created a FAT 32 …

Re: Vista content protection

If you don't like DRM then don't buy into it. I'm not buying HD-DVD/Bluray until the format is cracked or if there's an easy way for me to bypass the DRM. Me neither. Unforunately, there are always the average consumers who buy new things just because they're new. Oh, I knew a lot of people who …

Ewww . Scottish soldiers forced to share kilts for now Shortage means 1 for every 15 soldiers due to contract snafu with supplier LONDON - Great Scot! A shortage of ceremonial kilts could leave thousands of soldiers without a stitch of plaid to wear as they parade to the skirl of the bagpipes. …

Re: DOS & modern graphic cards

So, um, does it answer your question? You answered my question VERY WELL. Thanks, it is a very clear explanation. Glad to help. :) Now I hope this thread could be useful for anyone who's planning to boot in DOS and looking for a video card suitable (read: old enough) for the purpose. StickByDOS has …

Re: DOS & modern graphic cards

Hi, I was wondering if some version of DOS could use the capacity of modern graphic cards (like ATI) 100% if a game designed for DOS needed it. Frankly, I'm not sure what hajime actually means, because if he's talking about 3D acceleration, the answer is quite obvious: the only DOS games ever …

Re: No sound in Earthsiege

And second, part of my joystick setup doesn't work. I have a Thrustmaster HOTAS Cougar, and the joystick works fine, but the throttle and rudder pedals don't. Not sure about your sound problem, but I know what happens with your HOTAS setup: IIRC when you're using USB joystick, DOSBOX will always …

Why neither ATI nor nVidia use Fragment AA?

Well, I'm talking about the 16x Fragment Anti-Aliasing originally used by Matrox Parhelia. The AA method only takes "fragment pixels" (pixels on the edge of an object) and then collects 16 sub-pixel samples for AA purpose. Theoritically, this method means way bigger sample size with less fill rate …
