Re: Emulating MT-32 on an RPi2

Hopefully don't sound too picky, but I am an audio centric person and the difference is pretty noticable to me. Even if I'm getting a little tearing or a frame rate drop, it's worth it. Aren't there quite a few high quality sound cards for the Raspberry Pi out there that connect through GPIO pins …

Re: How about a MR-BIOS ROM file repository?

I remember flashing an MR BIOS on an Intel Advanced/EV ("Endeavour") motherboard as an alternative for the AMI BIOS it originally came with. I remember downloading it from the MR BIOS website (or was it a BBS?) from a long list of aftermarket BIOS images for many motherboard types. It was an …

Re: Welcome to the updated VOGONS

in Milliways
Wow, I love the new interface! And now with support for emojis as well. Woohoo! 🥳 Most feedback here so far has been about the colors. But I'd like to emphasize the huge improvement in usability, particularly on mobile devices. Something as simple as non-reflowing text, forcing us to scroll …

Re: Dos4GW options?

Your second paragraph makes no sense. That was actually not a crazy question. A DOS extender does all sorts of stuff that advanced users might want to tweak. DOS32A for instance is a drop-in replacement for DOS/4GW and can optionally be configured with an environment variable, as documented here: …

Re: ScummVM 2.1.0

Re: AdLib Gold Boxed

Hurts when I see this. :) I sold mine (boxed as well) approximately 10 years ago for 150 euros or so... Well, you might comfort yourself in the knowledge that it would still be nothing compared to what you would have today, had you bought 150 euros worth of Bitcoin back in those days. I'm not …

Re: Open Source i386 BIOSes?

in PC Emulation
I'm using SeaBIOS in my emulator, but if I remember correctly it relies on the remapping support in the chipset to decompress itself to RAM. Ah, that probably explains why I couldn't get the SeaBIOS image to work with the emulated machine types in PCEm that I tried it with. There is also an image …

Re: dosbox-staging (DOSBox Git repo)

Nah, the outcome was: talk to the devs and see how to make them see the light. Okay, I'm going to write the following rant with the highest of respect and appreciation for the upstream DOSBox developers. Please keep that in mind. Convincing a developer that Git is so much better than SVN is like …
