Re: Voodoo 5 5500 AGP Compatibility Problem

Awesome news! Great work, nice to see it working again. With great interest I have followed this thread, as I have a similar problem. I'm about to recap the card but I'm having a setback. These caps are glued to the pcb, as you yourself have seen. How did you take them off? I have no problem …

Re: Voodoo 5 5500 AGP freezes PC

I'm going to replace all the caps and see what happens. Thanks for the explanation. An ESR meter would be used once, not worth the money. Below links are what I think are the right items: https://sinuss.nl/componenten/passieve-componenten/condensatoren/aluminium-electrolytic/aluminium-electrolytic- …

Re: Voodoo 5 5500 AGP freezes PC

R112 has nothing written on it, I don't have the card with me right now but I'm 99% sure U11 has a dust particle on the picture. Unfortunately I don't have an ESR meter, I do have both an analog and a digital multimeter. Those two meters don't suffice for checking caps right? I would need to take …

Re: Voodoo 5 5500 AGP freezes PC

It's a really bad plan to replace a cap that handles 3700 mA ripple with one that can only take 450 mA. Particularly when ripple is that caps main job. . The cap that I used to replace the old one with was purchased a while ago, and while it does work I'll try to find another one. Finding this one …

Voodoo 5 5500 AGP freezes PC

Hi guys, I have a Voodoo 5 5500 AGP videocard which I haven't used for a couple of years. Back then, I got it from eBay and it never worked properly so I got another one which works. However, after this time I thought I'd look into it's problems again, so maybe someone of you can help me. The card …

Re: Lands of lore on a 286 freezes

Did it work ? Well I first had to buy some memory for the pc. 1 MB wasn't enough. After installing emu386 the game installed and I got the intro working, surprisingly it wasn't really slow. After selecting a character I got a black screen and didn't have time to try other things. I also installed …

Re: Lands of lore on a 286 freezes

Hey Justin1091, Just out of curiosity, are you seeing a graphical glitch and freeze when it attempts to decompress introduction speech, or does it just not seem to be doing anything for a bit of time? I wouldn't be surprised if the installation's decompression is crippling that 286 processor. It it …

Re: Lands of lore on a 286 freezes

I know the minimum requirement is a 386 That's the point. It simply doesn't work on a 286. So you tested it? Thanks for letting me know. Edit: see my next post, it might work. And because it doesn't return an error I'm curious if it should work (slower of course) or if something else is wrong, …

Re: Lands of lore on a 286 freezes

Thank you, that is very interesting. Will try it as soon as I'm able and post back results. I suddenly realize that the CD version of Lands of Lore comes with a vwwsd.386 driver, which installs to system.ini when installing under Windows 3.11 (or 95, 98). According to the manual, this is for …

Lands of lore on a 286 freezes

Hello guys, I have a 16mhz 286 pc and I am trying to run Lands of Lore 1, the floppy version. When the installation program asks for diskette 2 and I insert it, the installer hangs at 'Decompressing introduction speech'. I tried installing it on a Pentium 2 pc and it worked. So I put the 286's HDD …

Re: Voodoo2 in a pure MS-DOS PC

Voodoo2 SLI never failed me in DOS. Some games crash in glide mode when you have EMM386 loaded. Try disabling it and try again. For drivers, you can download a package and unzip it. Then put glide2x.ovl and in your SYSTEM directory (or was it DOS directory? I don't remember). Games that don't come …
