Re: soundblaster awe 32

maxtherabbit wrote on Yesterday, 00:01: Did anyone ever determine if AWEUTIL will function on the 286? Or did OP just switch to unisound? Hi. I wonder the same. I'm afraid to break my current 286 system (it finally works fine), but can try running the AWEUTIL executable alone. - I'll write back …

Re: Why is Gravis Ultrasound very expensive?

in Windows
^Hi, the AWE seems to be fully emulated in PCem/86Box.. That's why I decided to keep an AWE card, for the sake of owning an original device with the 8K ROM font. I even made my own dump, which was accepted by the emu. However, it's been years since I ran PCem on powerful hardware.. I'm stuck with a …

Re: List of video card tech demos

in Milliways
I will add that as well for the facr it's still a official video card OEM demo. Thank you! ^_^ If you ever need a copy of these that you can't find online, please let me know. I may not qualify as a real gamer, but software preservation is a side hobby of mine. Maybe I do have copies of an old demo …

Re: List of video card tech demos

Not an official Nvidia demo, but historically relevant maybe.: https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce256-t,135-4.html i should add, but there are some demos I added that are unofficial as well. For example Unigine benchmark is on Nvidia site but it's not theirs. I understand, makes sense. …

Not an official Nvidia demo, but historically relevant maybe.: https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce256-t,135-4.html Edit: "I have to say that I never saw a game-demo as impressive and as beautiful at the same time, but some of you might be very disappointed about the complete lack of blood …

Re: Trident 8900D ISA Dead

in Marvin \ Video
Is one of yours has 2 eeproms in two sockets that works in your 286? Cheers, Hi, it's this one. It has two EPROMs. I could dump them if that's helpful. Not sure if they compatible with the 8900D, though. Tiido likely knows more aboutthe matter than me. All I really know is that the 88xx, 89xx, 90xx …

Re: Trident 8900D ISA Dead

in Marvin \ Video
[..] it's kind of pointless since it doesn't run on XT-class machines (internal BIOS probably has 286+ code):[..] XT class machines can handle 80286 instructions just fine if an 80188/80186 or NEC V20/30 is installed. With the exception of Protected-Mode or NMI related instructions. Likewise, an …

Re: Tandy 2500 XL "C0 to 1E0" patching

in Marvin \ Sound
Hm. Patching seems to be the only option on a 286. I mean, in theory, illegal instructions could be intercepted on a 286 already. That's what EMU386 does, it installs an exception handler for 386 instructions. But I don't know if that works on a pure 286. I mean, with external logic on the ISA bus …

Re: Opensource AT BIOS

in PC Emulation
Hi again! 🙂 I'm sorry that I couldn't be more helpful. Maybe there are other people seeing this thread and have some ideas, too. - Both Vogons and vcfed.org have some really competent members IMHO. While I was a 286er user for a longer time (in the 90s), my knowledge isn't complete. I'm also mainly …
