Re: Favorite forgotten games

I played around a bit with the sound settings in that game and felt like the "DAC on LPT1" (which I gather is Covox Speech Thing or somesuch) gives the best sound/music quality. If you like Boulder Dash clones, you might want to check out Digger (not to be confused with the Windmill Software …

Re: Schneider Euro PC

If I have a HD20 from Schneider. Do you see a chance of using it with bigger CF card/Adapter-Solution, so that the ISA-Slot could remein free? Or is it "hardwired" 8Bit IDE for XT-Drives which means 20-30MB and a real spinning and noisy harddisk? I strongly doubt it. It's definitely not IDE, how …

A really nice thread, I got to know Heartlight thanks to it. It's a favorite genre (slow paced relaxed puzzle that you can leave idle for a while) but I'd never heard of it until now. PC speaker music is impressive too, check it out! I'm sure more gems will appear.

Re: A defrag for dos 7 do it even exist?

As for freedos defrag, that options aren't greyed out if used in a fat16 unit, it's probably an implementation issue with fat32 and the freedos defrag. True, if you try to use for example the /F switch it'll tell you that this method is not valid on FAT32. But I wanted to make sure it's clear that …

Re: A defrag for dos 7 do it even exist?

OK so it runs. I don't know about the greyed-out options, I always thought that they aren't implemented yet. But it doesn't "just sort the files", it defrags them. It just doesn't move everything to fill the gaps from the beginning of the disk, like the "Full Optimization" would do.

Re: "Cold" Vanta

in Marvin \ Video
I had the idea that the "Tnt2 M64" and the "Vanta", besides having both a 64bit bus, are not exactly the same card (the former outperforming the latter)... I believe you are correct, well, depending on how one interprets "same card". From what I remember the Vanta was 16MB and both core and memory …
