Re: 4:3 and refresh rate on a modern 24" LCD

Found an AOC U2790VQ4K 27" (no VGA) but it has a 4:3 switch in the settings, and supports these resolutions: AOC 4K.png Normally, I hate 27" it's too big, but 4K would be sharp and it seems to support everything else. It's just that I'd still need a VGA converter or the OCCS. Frustrating trying to …

Re: 4:3 and refresh rate on a modern 24" LCD

VGA had 70Hz refresh rate and a lot of 60Hz panels will display it with noticeable frameskip. So I would/will need a LCD that can do above 60hz (so like any gaming monitor) 144hz, and properly display 4:3 aspect...That would work then? If you can afford it, I recommend the OSSC. It will take care …

Re: 4:3 and refresh rate on a modern 24" LCD

1:1 = no scaling. And "Aspect" could be very problematic, because you have to rely on a scaler to determine correct aspect ratio, which will lead to overstretched picture more times than not. So if 1:1 is no scaling, if the 386 outputs 320x200 (720x400) then the BenQ model would actually display …

Re: 4:3 and refresh rate on a modern 24" LCD

Most LCD monitors recognize 320x200 as basic VGA text mode (for compatibility reasons), which is 720x400. So does this mean that it'll actually display as 720x400 on the lcd? There are probably some people on monitor/hardware related forums, which already tried to get higher than 60Hz refresh rate …

Re: 4:3 and refresh rate on a modern 24" LCD

Not just properly display 4:3 in general - properly display VGA mode. Which will require 70 Hz and forced 4:3 aspect ratio option or custom scaling, because it's anamorphic 16:10 resolution (320x200). (so like any gaming monitor) 144hz, Yes, but practically none of them have VGA or DVI with analog …

4:3 and refresh rate on a modern 24" LCD

hey all, so because of my work from home situation, I need to setup my work monitor on my desk where I'd normally run my 386. The LCD I'll be using is a Dell 24" LCD that has a VGA input which I want to use with my 386 system packing a Cirrus Logic 5429/30 1MB. I know this will work, but my question …

Where to dump / give away hardware

in Milliways
Hey All, So I have a storage locker full of old hardware that I need to empty, and I'm wondering where the best place to offer it for free is? All the stuff is 386, 486, Pentium, Pentium 2, and a little some Athlon and Pentum 4. But it's quite a lot of stuff, CPU's Video cards, sound cards, …

Re: Ruined memory of an old game by playing it!

in DOS
When it comes to nostalgia and old games, people tend to confuse remembering the actual game (compared to anything we have today, the graphics are pretty bad) vs the good memories we created while playing them. The latter of which can never be re-experienced. So when you play older games you have …

Re: Tex Murphy Mean Streets - Floppy Images

in DOS
Does anyone know where I can obtain either a install folder dump, or floppy img dump of Tex Murphy - Mean Streets? I've been wanting to replay it *on my 386 PC, but the only thing I've come across is buying from GOG (which I have already). My 386 PC has the GoTek floppy drive installed, but it's …
