Re: How (in)compatible MS-DOS 7 is?

Exactly. This is also a chance to leave out some of the memory hogging TSRs that are installed by default when using the Creative installer, but are not really needed in games. So the only apps won't run on MS-DOS 7 is a shitty installer by Creative Labs. Good news indeed! :D EMM386 is basically …

Re: How (in)compatible MS-DOS 7 is?

On my DOS machine I use MS-DOS 7 without any problems. Granted, I play all DOS games released before 1995 in DOSBox, with the exception of System Shock. So you play System Shock with MS-DOS 7, without problem? By the way, what CPU are you using? Is there any known compatibility problems of using …

Re: GeForce 6800 SLI works on Windows 98?

I am not sure what it is that you thing won't run on newer motherboards. I have MS-DOS, Windows 95 OSR2, and Windows 98 running happily on my nForce2 chipset. I imagine you at least have a couple of unidentified devices in Device Manager. How mobo-dependent an 6800 SLI solution is? Suppose I'm …

Re: How (in)compatible MS-DOS 7 is?

The only program that refused to work with MS-DOS 7.10 was Creative's DOS/Win3.11 installer for their SB16/AWE32 card. It assumes you are running it in a Win95 shell and quits with an error message. But in order to install SB16/AWE32 in DOS, we don't really need the Creative installer, do we? I …

How (in)compatible MS-DOS 7 is?

I think it's quite conventional wisdom that when building a pure DOS gaming platform, the DOS to be used is DOS 6.22. What I'm talking here is MS-DOS 7.10; the DOS that comes with Windows 98. See, it is possible to boot Win98 in "pure DOS mode", which is DOS 7.10. The question is why not using it …

Re: GeForce 6800 SLI works on Windows 98?

By the way, I also wonder: does Windows 98 need driver to run on a particular motherboard? I thought motherboard driver (or is it chipset driver?) is something that started from Windows XP. Nope. There's a Windows 98 "Chipset ID utility" for Win9x available on Intel's website, and I've seen similar …

Re: Help with building retro PC

It can get tricky trying to get an optimal DOS and 9x box. I'd suggest not mixing PCI and ISA audio. Hold on. This is interesting. I mean, why? Correct me if I'm wrong, and frankly I haven't ever tried it myself, but I alwasy thought, in a DOS/Win9x dual-boot environment, PCI sound card and ISA …

Re: GeForce 6800 SLI works on Windows 98?

Update: a friend on TR said that 6800 SLI on Windows 98 should be possible, as long as I could find a PCI Express motherboard with Windows 98 driver. Any suggestion? By the way, I also wonder: does Windows 98 need driver to run on a particular motherboard? I thought motherboard driver (or is it …

GeForce 6800 SLI works on Windows 98?

One thing I like about GeForce 6800 is that it works with Windows 98, so I (at least theoritically) can play old, Windows 98-only games with all the glory of 6800 (AA, AF, etc). However, a friend told me that Windows 98 does NOT support PCI Express, so a 6800 SLI is impossible in Win 98. At most, I …
