Re: Old GOG games are slowly getting killed

in Windows
Meeehr wrote on 2023-01-27, 11:31: You should not buy Games on GOG, they work not. They work most of the time on the platform they were released to (that is, Windows version current as of GOG release). It's hard to keep everything still working when suddenly a new Windows version appears that …

Re: Win16/DOSBox floppy compression issue

When my HDD space runs out, I used to use hard disk compression, however. Either on file system basis (DOS/Win 9x, DriveSpace) or on OS basis (Win NT, NTFS file compression). I never used DriveSpace because it was horribly slow (at least on those machines I've seen using it) and it ate some …

Re: 386 with 4GB?

The 4gb thing isn't real only exists on a piece of paper somwhere. It's in the design of the CPU and its 32-bit instruction set. Theoretically it should be possible to build a 386 mainboard with current tech that would accept 4 GB RAM. Just like current 64-bit CPUs support some astronomical amount …

dgVoodoo rescaler

How about a rescaler feature, where the output resolution will be forced e.g. to the current desktop resolution, but the game will be free to render in any resolution it wants, dgVoodoo doing the rescaling?

It's always been a case of "we cannot make it any faster because [some limitation of current …

Re: AT keyboard behaviour with numlock LED?

I don't know all the details. However, this paper by Microsoft gives explicit scancode sequences for at least some of those special cases: https://download.microsoft.com/download/1/6/1/161ba512-40e2-4cc9-843a-923143f3456c/scancode.doc No special treatment given to Scroll Lock, which probably means …

Re: AT keyboard behaviour with numlock LED?

And an AT keyboard image for reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Model_M_keyboard#/media/File:IBM_Model_M.png That is not the original AT keyboard layout. This is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Model_F_keyboard#/media/File:AT_keyboard_original_layout.png As you can see, there's no separate …

Re: Check out this remix of CANYON.MID

in Windows
clippy is the homie I always preferred the smiley red ball, whatever its name was. It's weird to associate CANYON.MID with Windows 95 - it was already there in Windows 3.1, perhaps even in 3.0 with Multimedia Extensions? :P There are several versions of canyon.mid, the one in Windows 95 sounds a …
