Re: Trident 9388 and DOS games

Sorry for doubleposting, but I just couldn't leave it alone and decided to dig further into the world of old Trident chips. While looking around for any clues, I stumbled upon an old DOS utility disk, with several interesting programs, like SETPCI or SETBOARD. There was also one called SVM, that let …

Trident 9388 and DOS games

I recently picked up a Fujitsu Lifebook C325 and restored it to life. As much as I like this machine, it has a Trident 9388 chip onboard, which suffers from the dreaded scrambled/split screen bug in several DOS games (Asterix & Obelix and Inner Worlds here): https://i.imgur.com/5V0flc2.png https:// …

Voodoo cards on a bottlenecked system (Socket 7)

Recently I found a rather nice deal for a Voodoo 3 2000 (PCI), and been thinking about picking it up and replacing Voodoo Banshee with that V3 card in my Windows 95 rig. The question is - will V3 make much of a difference in terms of performance, compared to Voodoo 2 or Voodoo Banshee, on a …

IDE/CD-ROM header on Aztech MM PRO 16III (AZT2320)

My adventures with the CD-ROM controllers and sound card continues... I recently picked up an Aztech MM PRO 16III PnP card with an IDE/CD-ROM header. Since the card is PnP, and the Amibios in my 486 build isn't, I'm using dwcfgmg.sys/ICU utils to configure the card. While the card is found and …

Re: VIA UniChrome Pro IGP vs Windows 98SE

Okay, I actually managed to find a dirt cheap VIA Epia board (the EN10000G one), as suggested in the previous thread . Even more amusingly, it looked like both boards had pretty much the same BIOS settings. Used the same Win98 disk, Hyperion 4 in 1 and CN700/S3 display drivers. And guess what? Works …

Re: VIA UniChrome Pro IGP vs Windows 98SE

Yeah, saw that thread too, wonder if he finally managed to get it working. :/ However I did a little progress - upon one logged boot up, Windows managed to start, although in 16 colours. The device manager showed that the device is working and the drivers are okay, but there's a memory range …

[SOLVED] VIA UniChrome Pro IGP vs Windows 98SE

I recently got my hands on a mini ITX Jetway board ( the J7F2 variety, Eden 1.2 GHz model ), and since it was supposed to be compatible with Win 9x, I thought about turning it into a nice little Windows 98SE machine with Yamaha YMF744 in the PCI slot. Everything went pretty smooth (system …

The curious case of ESS Solo-1 and gameport

I recently got an ESS Solo-1 PCI card for a Windows 95/DOS rig. While it works mighty fine in both Windows and DOS, I absolutely can't figure out how to enable the gameport. While installing the Windows drivers, only the device and DOS emulation drivers are installed, and there doesn't seem to be …

Re: Trident Cyber 9525DVD and Direct3D

Yeah, that's pretty much it. :) Some games run slower, some faster, but overall the sprite/texture issue is persistent across all of them. Croc and Turok runs fairly well, Shogo is a bit too choppy for a FPS, while Sonic R slows down to a crawl, 5 FPS at best. Oh well, as I said, there's always the …
