Re: ASUS PVI-486SP3

I've got the got same board running with a 5x86 P75 (at 133MHz). The manual doesn't say which jumper settings to use for a 5x86 but one of the Asus support pages, which I see are included in the zip posted by @jesolo, does. You can find them in "CPU Upgrade & Jumper Settings for later revisions.mht" …

Re: Most beautiful Dos-Games for a 486...what are your favorites?

in DOS
I'd almost forgotten about Inca! This game is gorgeous considering it was made in '92 and has a great soundtrack. It actually plays well on a 386 and lists 286 as minimum requirements.

Flight Unlimited yes, I remember it as being a "heavy" game (like Wing Commander 4 from around the same time). I will have to try EF 2000 again but I remember it as playable. Maybe my standards were different back then. [edit] I tried EF 2000 on my cacheless 486 DX4 and on "Low" global detail …

Teenage Queen is interesting but don't check the Mobygames page if you don't want to be spoiled! Leave it to Exxos, and other French developers, to come up with weird or erotic games (preferably both combined) Good idea by the way to start posting screenshots. It's a thread that's about good …

Re: Starting DOS games freezes the PC

eXoDOS games are setup to run in DOSBox, and sometimes modified in other ways (e.g. UFO Enemy Unknown is already patched with UFOpatch). But it would be quite the coincidence if all the games that you picked are broken. I happen to know that Rise of the Triad (Dark War) from that collection works on …

Re: Starting DOS games freezes the PC

To help read the text that flashes on the screen shortly, you could try recording the screen with your phone. It has helped me a few times, for example with EMM386 giving errors and immediately triggering a reboot. Are you trying to run the games from DOS or from Windows? You can try to disable as …
