Re: Yamaha TG-100 / TG-300 and MT-32 mode

in Marvin \ Sound
IMHO, just use a Raspberry Pi with soundcard that's running munt or another sutiable synth. A real MT-32 isn't the best choice in most cases, even. Games that were meant to support the LAPC-I are actually expecting a CM-32L, not an MT-32. The extra effects may be used in a subtle manner, but they …

Re: Windows 3.1 Filename Year Glitch

Based on this thread, it seems like there was a version of the CD with a \WIN30 directory, but the April 1999 and June 1999 versions of the CD don't have it. Look for post from Ira Sterbakov: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/comp.os.ms-windows.misc/ZXDVOqDIsk0 I can confirm that my original …

Re: PCI sound card issues in MS-DOS on modern PC

in Marvin \ Sound
MS-DOS 6.22 for Windows 3.1 is one reason (not sure if you can install 3.1 on Windows 98's DOS 7.1). If you need Windows 3.1 , that is certainly a reason, though there is a way to install Windows 3.11 under DOS 7.1 https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?t=31922 That said, I don't think anyone would …

Re: Windows 3.x V86 mode on 80286 CPU?

in PC Emulation
DOSX/Krnl286.exe use the 286 native mode, the 16-Bit Protected-Mode, which has a segment-based Memory Managment Unit. Unlike Real-Mode, segment size can be anything between 1KB to 64KB (but WIn 3.x stuck to 64KB in order to be binary compatible with Real-Mode programs). In theory, it could do …

Re: The "best" S3 Virge cards to buy?

in Marvin \ Video
I'm fine with the ViRGE 325. It's trouble free, works with unpatched S3D games, has Trio64V compatible 2D core and often comes with VBE 2.x compatible BIOS. In addition, the defaults for memory timings are much too conservative in some cases (there's room for over clocking). https://vintage3d.org/ …

Re: Windows 3.11 vs. Windows 95

How's driver management in 3.11? I think it's good. but I only think that way because it's simple/limited depending on your view. I think the same. Windows 3.1x was such a friendly little environment. In essence, you only had to restore some backups of the *.ini files if something went wrong. I do …
