Re: I wish I had discovered Windows ME sooner!

Pro tip: don't run DOS games in a Windows environment unless it's Win3.1 or earlier. For a pro tip, it's a pretty bad one. For starts, Win9x can actually run many DOS games that simply crash in Win3.x. Games that use DOS extenders come to mind. And some sound cards support better features for DOS …

Re: Geforce 7 series backwards compatibility

Re: Introducing myself in Win 98

in PC Emulation
I use Virtual Box and have already a Win 98 VM. Mi real computer is a good one, with 16 gm ram and other stuff, so that isnt a problem for me. You will not be able to get hardware accelerated 3D (OpenGL/Direct3D/Glide) in a Windows 98 Virtualbox VM . This will render pretty much all Windows games …

Alternatively, if you plan to use this drive long term through …

Re: GPU for 440BX machine with 133 MHz bus?

[...] The 5V rail is also generated by the power supply, the motherboard has nothing to do with it The 5V rail on the PSU goes to the ATX connector on the board and from there it's split over lines to the AGP slot and to the CPU. That all happens on the motherboard. I mean it does, yes, but the …

Re: what will you do when your last hardware fails?

in Milliways
Already, shortages of the most revered retro hardware mean that many retro enthusiasts will definitely live out their lives without personally owning, say, a Model M keyboard, or a Gravis Ultrasound, or a real MT-32, original IBM machines, CRT screens, or many old consoles. *SNIP* I can say with my …
