Re: Volo's Gamepad to PS/2 Adapter. Device discussion (official thread) (Assembly 12.08.2021)

Mail me. I accept US ABA transfers, EU SEPA, UK local payments, Wise and banking cards (though I couldn't check if banking cards worked) Not to get repetitive, since I mentioned it in this thread before, but Volo, your country has just adopted crypto-friendly legislation: https://cointelegraph.com/ …

Re: What do you drive?

in Milliways
A lady here in NZ bought a second hand EV with dying batteries. It was going to cost her for the batteries than the total cost of the car which was in very good condition other than the batteries. Yeah, that's shameful, both of the seller and of the car manufacturer. When buying a used EV, it's a …

Re: Why DOS died...

in Milliways
I've been messing with Sound Blaster hardware level programming in asm. It's not that I'm that good in asm, I just took someone's code and amended it a little, now trying to add new features. The fun is that it actually worked in DOSbox, but not on the real hardware. So I had to do my experimenting …

Re: What do you drive?

It will be interesting when all these battery power/part powered cars/vehicals need replacement batteries and the cost there of. In my mind it is just not as black and white as currently claimed....There will have to by some rethinking on this in a decade or so. It's an important point you bring up …

Re: Why DOS died...

in Milliways
I've been doing some typing/programming in DOS recently. And the reason why it died bacame cristal clear for me - it does not have copy/paste functionality :D That's why I prefer to use a modern IDE with a cross compiler such as gcc-ia16, Open Watcom v2 or DJGPP when I do DOS programming. There's …

Re: Good soundcard for Windows 2000

You could go for a Sound Blaster Live! or Audigy (perhaps also an Audigy 2, not sure), and then install the kX audio drivers: https://github.com/kxproject/kX-Audio-driver-binaries As far as I know, those include ASIO support. But using the kX drivers instead of the official Creative drivers may …

Re: What do you drive?

Interestingly Norway fuels the worldwide climate change heavily by pumping oil in large amounts while it internally opts for a greenwashing agenda with EV first strategy. Yeah, that's the cynical way to view it. At least they're spending their oil riches on making the transition. If there's any …

Re: What do you drive?

"Real engine" cars are not going away in our lifetimes. Not entirely perhaps, but I believe most of us will live to see the sale of the last newly produced mass market ICE vehicle, likely within the next two decades, or even quicker. They will be relegated to niche old-timers. For an apt comparison …

Re: OPL3LPT : OPL3 FM Synthesis on parallel port

Just wasted an entire friday getting my OPL3LPT to work on windows 10 using a LPT PCIe card with asix chipset. tried many configuration including its legacy port support but Scummvm couldn't open port 278,378 or 3bc Vincent Bernat implemented OPLxLPT support in ScummVM through use of the …

Re: DSOAL EAX support on QEMU Windows VM

in PC Emulation
@kjliew Not that it's your main focus, but while you're at it: how hard do you reckon it would be to replace the old OPL2 emulation code in QEMU with Nuked OPL3? :innocent: I would take a stab at it myself, but I'm not very experienced with low-level C programming. I guess I could give it a shot …

Re: SoftMPU project needs your help! (game & sound card testing)

in SoftMPU
If you read my quote again, you'll see that I mentioned compatibility with Microsoft's port trapping API, not QPI (QEMM). From what I found on-line, 386MAX is compatible with the Microsoft API, including the port trapping stuff, and can even be considered a superset of it. To be fair, though: I …

Re: Is DSL Linux dead?

in Milliways
....aaand another 486-specific patch made it upstream to the mainline Linux kernel. Good to see these trusty old beasts still being officially supported. ☺️ https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_i … ux-5.15-x86-IRQ
