Re: Some guys opinion about DOSBox

in Milliways
Apparently I was one of the few people on earth which typed "INTRO" at the command prompt and read it. But yeah, Dosbox is what it is. Can it be improved? Sure but at the moment it's still the best and most versatile Dos emulator. INTRO is not going to describe e.g. why MIDI port detection does not …

Re: Sound Blaster Audigy Rx...oppinions?

in Milliways
I personally haven't seen any issues with the X-Fi cards - I have both X-Fi (PCi-e) and Audigy 4 (PCI) cards. If you want to run EAX properly you should build an XP box with an X-Fi card. Alchemy is alright, but it doesn't work with EAX 1.0 games such as Planescape:Torment. I'm not sure if it's …

Re: Sound Blaster Audigy Rx...oppinions?

in Milliways
I see thanks. Though EAX should work with this card for old games right? Even if it's just emulation how does it hold up? Still cant beat the real thing but if you don't want a dedicated XP box I guess its ok https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QLj9obfMppk Thanks, the comment section was quite …

Re: Sound Blaster Audigy Rx...oppinions?

in Milliways
windows vista introuced a new audio stack in which hardware support for the directsound/directsound3d APIs was dropped, which is what EAX was an extension of and what games have been written for mainly until that point. from vista on directsound only runs as a software emulation, so the DSPs on …

Re: Sound Blaster Audigy Rx...oppinions?

in Milliways
you have not specified which games you actually intend to play on this thing. i have tried this card briefly on win7 x64 and it's essentially an audigy 2 zs bridged to pcie+toslink. being able to use it on the newest motherboards does make it somewhat interesting but the matter of fact is that EAX/ …

Sound Blaster Audigy Rx...oppinions?

in Milliways
Hi there, :) For a while now I'm eyeing the Sound Blaster Audigy Rx since I'm not too happy with the audioquality of my onboard soundchip which I have hooked up to my livingroom TV and stereoset via HDMI. It seems like a good deal, it has 7.1 surround (of which I think I will only use 5.1), supports …

Re: [Racing games] Learn to drive, funny cars, IA faults

in Milliways
Well, that was useful. I usually play mostly arcade, but the goal is to play better on more realistic games (rFactor and so on). I'm interested on Richard Burns Rally... does it have a virtual instructor or the tips are only written on the manual? I liked the flight school on Flight Simulator …

Re: [Racing games] Learn to drive, funny cars, IA faults

in Milliways
It really depends on what racinggames you want to play. Hardcore simulators like Assetto Corsa, simcade simulators like Grid or some of the Need For Speed games or all out arcade racers like the Burnout series. I'm not going to pretend I'm any good at racing because I probably aren't but I had the …

Re: EA Superbike 2000 in windows 10

in Windows
Like most older games the first hurdle is to circumvent the copyprotection in order to get them to run. Newer and updated versions of Windows tend to block things like Safedisk, older Securom, Tages and the worst offender Starforce. I know I could never get SBK 2000 to run without a crack even …

Re: Hyperblade on Windows 10, is it even possible?

in Windows
Thanks, ZellSF! :) I copied the contents from the CD directly to the harddrive and after patching and applying dgVoodoo 2 it worked, even the CD music played. The menu's and the ingame GUI are heavily glitched though, I will try some settings to see what can be done about that. By the way does …

Hyperblade on Windows 10, is it even possible?

in Windows
Lately I've been itching to play Hyperblade, I still have my copy that came bundled with my Diamond Monster 3D card. The futuristic setting and gameplay which is a violent icehockey-jai alai hybrid is really unique and I wish someone would remake and improve this game. Anyway a game where one of the …

Re: Late DOS/early Windows 3D 640x480 flight sims

in Milliways
Quite a few sims can play 640x480. I'm sticking to MS-DOS because most Windows flightsims can play at that resolution and higher. Also I'm not going to repeat the ones others already mentioned. US Navy Fighters ATF Jetfighter III Wing Commander III Wing Commander IV Privateer 2: The Darkening …

Re: Best way to play Descent Freespace & Silent Threat?

in Windows
edit: slight mistake install retail fs2 then the launcher then 2 onwards ps: Freespace 1 + 2 are two of the best space sims ever made Thank you for the information. I'll need to get a copy of Freespace II as I only have the first one. One more question; Once I have everything installed via the …

Re: Which soldering iron?

in Milliways
Depends, if it's just a one of project get a cheap one, if you want to buy just one soldering iron for the rest of your life I suggest to get one from the established brands like Weller for example. The higher price usually pays back just for the pleasure to work with good tools and reliability, …

Overlay brightness

Hello, With the last christmass sale on GOG I bought Epic Pinball and now I'm tinkering with the .conf to make it more suitable for me. I noticed that with opengl and openglnb the game looks the nicest with vibrant colors but the game suffers from lot of screentearing as also my display is really …

Re: Terra Nova: Strike Force Centauri

in Milliways
Great gameplay, especially for it's time and a campy story in full mid nineties FMV glory, loved every minute of it and I played through the campaign at least twice. The controls are a streamlined version of the original System Shock, I didn't have a problem with it but other peoples oppinions may …
