Question: how does one simply make a VxD file for Windows 9x? On top of that, when I run my K6-2/300 PC at full throttle, NHL Hockey 95 seems to have bad or incorrect notes, while underclocking the CPU from 300MHz to 166MHz, the notes are correct, however, the game doesn't seem to like Pure DOS or DOS Mode in Windows 98SE, except for running it in command prompt or just opening the file itself. In Windows 98SE, the notes are correct and everything works ok, except the music slows down a little bit until I hit a key and then it goes back to normal speed.
The reason why I use 300MHz is because DOOM gets 20FPS on average when clocked @ 166MHz, and I get about 95FPS on average between MS-DOS and Windows 98SE at full throttle (300MHz). I tried to use the slowdown program, but that didn't do a dent in MS-DOS, but Windows seems to be getting there. I hate to use a slowdown program in Windows because it can cause my system to freeze up constantly.
Programs for the MPU401 used in between Windows 98SE and MS-DOS:
- Sound Blaster Drivers
- SoftMPU v1.9
- Sound Blaster Drivers (in the autoexec.bat file)
- Sound Blaster MPU401 Fix (sbmpu401.exe)
Hell, in Windows 3.11, NHL Hockey 95 ran like a champ without issues, especially in full speed @ 300MHz.
