I wonder if someone run into the following issue. My setup:
- Some VIA board with Apollo Pro / VT82C596 chipset
- 512MB Ram
- Pentium III Coppermine (Socket 370) 1000Mhz
- Voodoo3 AGP 16 MB ram
This is mostly a Win98SE gaming rig but I have setup a separate MSDOS 6.22 partition for just the fun of it.
I have noticed some serious issues with games like DOOM2 which is literally lagging and bugged.
Some others I tested:
-Lost Vikings1: this is absolutely terrible video has major lag in refresh
-Biomenace 1-2-3 same as many other side scrollers the display refreshing weird
-Epic pinball. small but noticeable refresh lag
-Duke3D atomic: game freezes randomly
Some games work fine like Alien Rampage, Raptor call of shadows, Prince of persia 1-2.
I have tried to disable the internal/external CPU cache to slow the machine down see if it helps anything, not really, not related to it.
I had 2 other cards at hand:
-S3Virge DX PCI
-Ati Rage IIC AGP: with this I got the best experience overall in the 2D dos games but that lag was still present in lost vikings and biomenace
Any ideas if something can be done to fix this?
