Re: WfW 3.11 - how this guy did that?

Heyy, that distro in your signature! Does it allow to use other dosbox versions? I was exactly looking for a similar solution to use with my raspberry pi 3 Sorry I didnt see this earlier. Good question, I never tried. I've just always used the dosbox package designed for tinycore. I'll have a look …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

I decided to take a challenge today, I wanted to make a retrocompatible version of my own modern website. The main goal is to render it an (ALMOST) exact copy of the modern version on IE5.0/WFWG 3.11. Now, I took this challenge because I wanted to remind me of the old days when I started doing this, …

I woke up thinking about opening a thread here to discuss all things webdesign. Techniques, trends, code snippets, and also discuss about retro compatibility for websites and about the "abuse of libraries/frameworks" some developers these days actually do. I just don't know in which forum zone I …

ayy are you on freenode? Hey! Nope... I used to be on brazilian networks almost daily when I was a kid (BrasNET and/or BrasIRC). Never been on Freenode. I might as well go there later, since BrasNET is dead and BrasIRC is now almost empty. @oeuvre: Which IRC server is #Vogons in? I tried irc. …

Re: Modern laptops vs. more traditional designs

the new macbook keyboards are atrociously awful... zero ergonomics, zero comfort, zero usability. I couldn't agree more. I would love to go back to the mechanical keyboards - the click noise, is now a thing of the past. And I find myself correcting my typos with the current keyboard a lot more than …

But nothing has native DisplayPort input. We skipped straight to USB-C on that one. You're wrong. Every 24" and higher professional monitor has DisplayPort input and has had it for years. My DELL U2410 from 2010 has it just like my BenQ PD3200U from 2018. And even if you have a monitor that doesn't …

Re: Modern laptops vs. more traditional designs

I got a 2013 MBP instead of newer ones just because of the keyboard... and because the previous owner had replaced the HD with a 1TB SSD. 16gb RAM came soldered, of course. For me, I'm fine with the ports (2 USB, 2 TB, 1 Audio Jack, 1 HDMI and 1 SD card slot). For other kind of ports (like a VGA …

Re: WfW 3.11 - how this guy did that?

Sorry for resurrecting an old thread, but I got so damn interested in how the hell he achieved a such amazing resolution. Is it possible with DOSBox? Vanilla DosBox is emulating a 2mb videocard, so its unlikely a modified driver would help. Some of the custom builds allow for more flexibility. Heyy …

Re: WfW 3.11 - how this guy did that?

Vanilla DOSBox works fine at 1024x768 64K using the S3 Trio64V driver. Yeah, I know, but the video shows a higher resolution. I wonder if it could be done in dosbox-x version EDIT: Excerpt taken from Dosbox wiki: svga_s3 (vga on DOSBox 0.71 and 0.72) is SVGA (Super Video Graphics Array): A loose …

Re: Edge based on Chromium

I can give my two cents, I am a web developer (Well, a front-end developer) since 2004. I work mostly on responsive web designs. I can say that I have tested the chromium Edge version and I have to say, I like it. I like the fact that IE is going defunct now and MS moved forward with Edge and web …

Re: WfW 3.11 - how this guy did that?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=55yp3uGwJKw problem is I even try to set SVGA 1024x768 256cols from regular win setup , and my lcd monitor shows freq out of sync... Another workaround is using a patched SVGA driver. Some guys patched that universal WfW driver in a way so it would always use VESA …

Yeah, we might need a new topic for both. (lol) If we were to create a new topic like that, maybe we could call it "What modern activity (along with a retro situation) did you get up to today?" :lol: Nah, I don't think we would need a thread like that, we already have this modern tech thread and …

Don't know how to classify this, as a retro or modern activity. But I installed WinAmp 5.8 on my Windows 10 Enterprise VM, along with the classic skin running on it. Oh, memories... I also still use winamp today, and I don't see any need to change that :) it really whips the llama's ass. For sure!
