Re: zBoy - a GameBoy Classic emulator

what are the system requirements? It's a 32-bit (protected mode) application, so it requires at least a 386. But for comfortable performances I'd rather recommend a Pentium-class CPU. I'm sure, as time goes on, you'll be able to improve things so it can run on a 40MHz "486" just like old NO$GMB.. …

Re: Win9x game compatibility.

Edit: The official DirectX Redist. for both Win9X/XP is from 2004. After this one is installed, you can upgrade up to version 2008 (on Win Me). So Windows ME can run a newer version of DirectX than 98SE? I didn't know that. That implies that there are games that run under ME that do not run under …

Re: Compact Flash Card Help (sorry, I've looked and looked)

in DOS
am I missing something here? I just did this, put the card in my 386 and installed DOS on it, no issue. after that I just switched the card between my main machine and the 386 to copy over games and stuff. (or I have really bad memory and did something different the first time?) fat.png Maybe. If …

in DOS
How can you format them in FAT16? I just have an option for FAT or NTFS. When installing DOS it reformats the card, then the Win10 machine can't read it anymore. a) By using Command Line b) By trying out and older copy of GParted - https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?p=793778#p793778 c) By using …

Re: Win9x game compatibility.

I was wondering about when games stopped working on win9x. Was it when they started using directX 10 or was there other reasons why a game from WinXP/Vista period wouldn't work on Win9x? Hello there! Are you asking about technical or official limits ? Technically, Win9x can run some of the DirectX …

Re: Antivirus software for DOS ?

Virus Buster, anyone? For DOS, no virus will be targeting them anymore. Who knows ? Some industrial and embedded systems surely run on DOS, some of which are based on x86-SBCs using Pentium-level CPUs. :) In theory, these systems are featuring some kind of connectivity by now and could be "targets" …

Re: VGA games with only 16 colors

in DOS
There's another game that uses EGA/VGA palette and 350/4x0 line mode; The Last Half Of Darkness. :cool: Not sure if it does any palette tricks, but it should run on that Amiga board (game has 4/8MHz option). https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?p=539591#p539591 Edit: In case you can't find a …

in DOS
Virtualbox.. MS Virtual PC 2007 supports AMDV/Intel-VT acceleration and x64 releases of Windows (there are later patches, btw.). Plus, the old Virtual Additions for VPC 2004 and earlier still work. That way, you can use shared folders DOS or have mouse integration in Win 3.1, even. :) Edit: If you …

Re: Say "Hi!" to the Renovation SSI-2001!

in Marvin \ Sound
I like this idea. I would rate this with 5 stars or a thumb up if I could. :) The use of a SID substitute would also avoid possible anger of the other vintage fans who fear of their beloved vintage gear being ripped apart for the SIDs (which isn't exactly true, since many SIDs are defective since …
