Re: Fur Elise

in Milliways
A classical song converted into a very unpleasant experience. I wonder why this song is the preferred choice on phone calls.

Re: Problem with use of modern ATAPI device in 1990s Toshiba 470cdt / 490xcdt / 530cdt and similar retro laptops

I tried to replace the driver on my Satellite 4030, without success. In that computer, the optical drive was undetected (but was able to boot). Somewhere I read that the drive MUST be configured as slave, but those drives have no jumpers so it must be done at firmware level. There was some utilities …

Advice on wifi adapters for ChromeOS Flex

in Milliways
I'm repurposing an HP T620 as a "chromebook", "chromebox"... whatever. The thinclient was upgraded to 8Gb RAM, but still retains the 16Gb M2 SATA hard disk. I've installed the official ChromeOS Flex, and it works fine (the HP T620 is on the list of certified things). The problem is that my HP T620 …

Re: VGA cable signal degradation at high resolutions.

in Marvin \ Video
In my experience, VGA cables are a hit/miss thing when going above 1280x1024. Any cable can fail (thick or thin), so you should get the next one and try again. In any case, I think that this is pointless... most cards and monitors that can do those resolutions have other means of connection (DVI, …

Re: Most disappointing games?

in Milliways
What about Megarace? Last week, I've played it for the first time and I think it is (very) overrated. - Bad FMV. Lance Boyle is very overacted, and it doesn't get better on the sequels. - Overuse of FMV. It seems that you can't do anything without seeing some kind of videos (I know that you can …

Re: How will this affect DOSBox development?

in PC Emulation
I guess it won't affect DOSBox at all. It seems that they will drop 16 bits instructions, but DOSBox does not have 16 bits instructions in it's code. The thing is that DOSBox uses 32 or 64 bits instructions to actually emulate the behaviour of the CPU (opposed as virtual machines like Virtualbox or …

Re: Ripping mp3 from games with CD audio tracks?

in Milliways
Sorry for the late answer... I've been very busy... Don't know if it's useful to you, but I know that bchunk (linux) will convert bin/cue to a data ISO + individual music tracks in .wav format. Thanks. One of my goals was preserving some DOS games, so I wanted to do a cue/bin image and a (smaller) …

Ripping mp3 from games with CD audio tracks?

in Milliways
I'm going through my games collection and I wanted to rip the soundtrack of some games that had CD audio (using fre:ac). So far, I've found this problems: 1.- No cddb info for most games. I wanted my mp3 to have tags with titles... but it seems that info is not in (default) cddb database. Does …

Re: targeting PC DOS 1.0 - how do you open files?

AFAIR: - DOS 1.0 did not support directories nor hard disks; I highly recommend targetting DOS 2.x (or better 3.x) so you can support both directories and handles. - You have to build your own FCB before trying to open the file; then the OS will inform you if the file was opened succesfully. - FCB …
