Re: Ultra retro, not so retro Frankenstein's monster.

in Milliways
Well my main problem is space, and it is just a nice hobby, to cram retro comuters in small cases. I have use a VCR case, DVD player case, few small UPS cases, uATX case. 486 cpus are X locked in my opinion. So you can not change from DX2 to DX4, but FSB easily changeable and somehow the FSB speed …

This is nothing, what if last floppy is corrupt. In the old days i had one of last floppy corrupt in a Windows 95 floppy installation. Seriously, I'm wondering what's the record diskette count for a single software product? My candidate is Microsoft Office 97, with 46 diskettes. Just imagine this: …

If you overclock the ISA bus, 40MHz FSB 1/3 fraction is 13,33MHz, the ALS100+ works fine, and Trident 9000i runs Doom just fine and with Fast Doom h13 mode it is butter smooth, in the good VESA card and DX4 levels smooth. In lower ISA speeds the Tridend will bottleneck a little.

GUS ACE, AMD 486 DX4 120 that can do a nice sustainable 3x50=150MHz, NEC XR385, Asus PVI-486SP3 V1.8 with latest B4 chipset. I think Sound Blaster AWE 32/64 cards are not in the Roland/GUS league, so not that rare. Had a few assorted Voodoos and GUS extremes, but really did not have any use for them …

Re: VGA games with only 16 colors

in DOS
RGBI is what it is. 16 color Windows uses the same RGBI. And ZX Spectrum just does not have the IBM CGA introduced BROWN color, istead has dark yellow. I do not see any difference in RGBI and Windows 16 color display. Only one GREY level added. ZX spectrum has 2 BLACKS. Maybe some VGA cards or …

Re: Winplay3 MP3 bitrate and format?

in Milliways
Ok. I ask, I answer. I used LameXP batch conversion program. Stripped ID3 tags. And it even plays low bitrate and variable bitrate by the way. Even Windows XP can run Winplay3. So the problem seem to be those modern ID3v2 tags. Original ID3 tag is supported and it even shows the information in …
