Really old PC Speaker speech-programs for DOS??

I remember these things from my youth - really simple command-line tools such as "speak.com" or "say.com" or whatever, where you would simply write something like "SAY CZECHOSLOVAKIA" and it would perform simple, crude, wonderful speech synthesis on the 1-bit PC speaker of my XT clone... I've been …

Re: Mounting CUE

MP3 gets wrong timing because it changes the soundwaves a lot when compression takes place To be pedantic, that's not the actual reason (OGG "changes the soundwaves a lot" too, for example) - the issue is that MP3 is encoded in "frames" of a constant size (1 frame = 26ms, or around 38fps), so if …

Re: DOSBox Midi vs ScummVM Midi Question

Hmmm..... from what I know of AdLib FM synthesis (and I could be wrong), even though it is patch- and event-based, the generated music data is not automatically translatable into MIDI, mostly due to the inherent incompatibility of the events/commands that the two methods handle (due to their …

Re: Original Digger/Digger Remastered

The original Digger doesn't work at all. Works very well for me - what parameters are you using? Make sure to set machine=cga (the original Digger has always required CGA or a very close compatible, like many other Windmill games... never worked on my EGA and VGA machines back in the day). As for …

Good LCD monitors for DOSBox/retrogaming in general

First of all - didn't know which forum to post this in, but the issue is also affected by the use of DOSbox scalers, so here I am. Basically... I'm finally making the amazing technological leap from CRT to LCD. My problem is finding a monitor that will handle the lower-than-native resolutions (used …

Volume control for PC Speaker emulation?

Is there an option to set the volume of the PC Speaker emulation independently from the other emulated outputs (GUS/Adlib/SB etc)? The reason I ask is this; some games use PC speaker sound effects in addition to Adlib music, for example. With an actual physical PC speaker this isn't a problem, but …

Carmageddon II network play under WinXP?

in Windows
Hey, My brother and I have been trying to get Carma2 network play to work. The game itself runs 100% fine on both systems (under XP Pro), but neither machine can "see" the other in order to initiate a network game (no matter who hosts, the other machine says "no games in progress"). The network …

Re: Carmageddon trouble

Yes - I said "DOS executables" since the Splat Pack version (which is what I'm trying to run) also has a set of Windows ones (carma95.exe, etc). I needed to differentiate here because the latter runs fine. As for other MS-DOS programs and games, sure; everything from Alley Cat to Impulse Tracker - …

Re: Carmageddon trouble

Already have... again, see first post :oops: Same results with DOSDRV or without. It's really inexplicable, as if all the DOS executables in the folder somehow became corrupted. For all intents and purposes it's like running a blank batch file... no error message, not a thing, not even a split …
