Re: Floppy troubles

In the mean time, I have managed to get a 2nd old PC (but a lot less old than my Win2K one, viz. a Celeron D with Windows 7) up and running, and it has no problem reading all of my old disks, nor does it have a problem exchanging files per disk with the Win2K machine. So I've sent the USB floppy …

Re: Floppy troubles

Yeah those external drivers are very cheap. I bought one from aliexpress a couple of years ago and it never worked fine, I had your very same problem. Then I found there are adapters to use the old floppy drives with usb, since then I use it without any issues with windows 10. That's interesting, …

Re: Floppy troubles

Which OS? I tried both Windows 10 and Windows 7. My USB floppy drive just started doing something similar to this a couple of weeks ago, on my main PC with Windows 10. But the USB floppy drive works fine on one of my Linux laptops. Mmm, I have an old Linux laptop I could try, thanks for the idea. …

Floppy troubles

I've recently booted up my old Pentium MMX with dual boot Windows 95/Windows 2000 to backup some very old stuff. It has a network card, but somehow the drivers aren't installed (I swapped hardware apparently), so the only way to get information on and off is floppies. I've bought a USB floppy drive …

Adlib capture start

in DOSBox General
Adlib capture doesn't start until the first note is played, but am I right in assuming that it does buffer any commands issued before that? Otherwise instrument definitions wouldn't be captured. JAL

Re: DOSBox vs forks and patches

in DOSBox General
Some more info here : http://www.vgmpf.com/Wiki/index.php/HERAD Ad Lib Inc., in its Programmer's Manual, shows the full register map of the OPL2, as far as I can see. So this may perhaps be a misinterpretation or a misremembering of that person. But that's beside the point, anyway. Agreed that it's …

Unless it uses the "composite sine wave mode", which afaik nobody has ever documented (not even Yamaha themselves), I don't think there are "undocumented …

Re: Guide to the DOSBox debugger

in DOSBox General
But releases is not how you determine the death of a project... what's your agenda here? Not sure if I agree. For the ordinary users, it may well be. Glad to see there's still life and love for this project though, and let's end this meta-discussion here lest we invoke the wrath of a moderator :). …

Re: DOSBox debugger

Indeed! That seemed the case, even though I'm running an offical build (85.0.4183.121). Funnily enough, even middle-button click, which should also open in new tab, doesn't work, the tab closes immediately. But opening a new tab from the context menu works. Really weird...

DOSBox vs forks and patches

in DOSBox General
I sincerely doubt it. DOSBox has been in stasis for a long time now, and the debugger hasn't been updated in decades. Would be nice to have a modern debugger like in most emulators, but I wouldn't hold your breath...

80186 socket

I've got a couple of 80186s lying around (ceramic package), and I've been tempted to start some project with them. However, I don't have sockets to put them in, and googling doesn't help. So my question is whether someone knows whether sockets for these chips are still available, and I'd so where. …
