Re: New forum suggestions/Feedback

i don't think anyone is suggesting a ban on "tell me your favorite" anything. but yeah i guess if something like that does get made, you would bet the language would have to get hammered out pretty good to prevent people from mis-using it.

Re: New forum suggestions/Feedback

IIRC, likes has been rejected because of the way that it changes the nature of a board. Things work well already and introducing likes would have a profound effect and would also piss off a lot of the established technical base here. Just the risk of losing important forum members is a good enough …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

AFAIK, the GLSL shader support is dependent on SDL, and in SVN works with SDL 1 and 2. So if your current system supports the OpenGL output from SVN, the my guess is it would still be supported. Performance could be be much worse though, I have heard comments that shaders slow things down on weaker …

I think that kind of happened to me, but I came back some months later and they started to respond. Both the community and the mods are less active there than VOGONs, and they are kind of slow.

Re: New forum suggestions/Feedback

I have a feeling that this kind of thing is purposely avoided on VOGONS, as it has more of a tech discussion (hardware and software) kind of vibe here. If you want classifieds of vintage computer stuff, I would recommend VCFED forums. They have an explicit Marketplace area on the forum there. But I …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

Unfortunately nothing changes... Still the black screen/window problem.. 😐 fumbling around with output methods results that it looks like an OpenGL problem. It does not occur with overlay or ddraw. So what's the problem? I really would like to use OpenGL... What's the resolution of the game you are …

Re: Aureal Vortex 2 SQ2500

Yes, that's what I'm talking about. We have a setup from them at work, and I've hooked it up with head-tracking. It works, but it's still not nearly as good as using headphones. To me, the best 3D audio solutions over speakers from today are still not good enough, and I would prefer surround sound …

Re: Aureal Vortex 2 SQ2500

The card you got is called the SuperQuad, it's the OEM varient of the SQ2500 and typically is found using the older AU8830 A2 rev of the chip. All Aureal SQ2500's used the AU8830 B0 chip revision. Aside from some hardware layout changes and part selection they both operate near identically. Yes, it …

As I said, I don't remember if Gold had it, or it was a patch for the OG retail version of Unreal. It's good though. I work for a company that specializes in audio signal processing and we demoed it one day in the office maybe 5 years ago.

Re: Aureal Vortex 2 SQ2500

in Marvin \ Sound
I never had A3D card but i remember reading reviews that were describing a truly 3d effect where a player could hear precisely from which direction a sound is coming which was apparently possible on headphones or even a pair of speakers. Was that true? Sort of. There are some great implementations …

Yeah, I think that's the feature connector. They used to advertise Dolby Digital upgrade boards for the diamond boards under the "MX Link" name, but they were rare af. that's probably something like that I would assume. Nothing wrong with coaxial at the frequency and bit rate you will be using there …

May I add a vote for a "Bookmarks" feature? Following threads as a workaround has several drawbacks: it floods our mailbox, consumes your bandwidth, and it doesn' t allow us to actually build a list of valuable threads. O.C. this is still a great site! Cheers! There is a "watchlist." Look at the …
