Re: System Right for Old Windows Games?

in Windows
TRAOD runs super smooth with maxed out settings (anisotropic filtering and what not) in 1600x1200 on my Q9550 + HD7850, 32-bit version of Windows 10. So... I don't think you need to slow down your system. Be sure to have the latest patch installed, which is I believe build 52.

Re: what are your favourite ps/2 mice?

in Milliways
I've been using Genius NetScroll 220 Laser mice for more than 10 years now. This is the second one I have now, the first one I destroyed in a rage if I remember correctly... The main problem when it comes to longevity is the scroll rubber, which after (very long) time gets loose and at some point …

Re: Problem with resolution 320x200 (Hexen)

I didn't say PC CRTs didn't have visible scanlines at all. I said that didn't have that visible scanlines, as he can't remember how CRTs look like, any scanline footage he's seen is probably from 240p consoles and as you mentioned computer games output 400p at minimum which has significantly …

Re: How to create colored windows in DOS

in DOS
If you have ANSI.SYS loaded then it's possible to prepare a text file that would appear this way when you print it with type command, or even use ANSI codes in a batch file using echo. Otherwise it's possible to print colored text from within an exe/com program, using any programming language. In …

Although I've always find it being an ugly stain in the Device Manager to have disabled device I often have a disabled or driver-less device or two in Device Manager.

Memory compatibility on P35 mainboard

So I decided to upgrade my Core 2 Quad build to 8 GB RAM. Here is the specs: • GA-P35-DS3L • Core 2 Quad Q9550 • Radeon HD7850 • SB Audigy • 2x 2GB DDR2 800 MHz Kingston • 2x 2GB DDR2 800 MHz GOODRAM • some HDDs My problem is that the Kingstons and the Goodrams refuse to work together at 800 MHz. …

Re: Ruined memory of an old game by playing it!

in DOS
if you simply try to play something like a 320x200 DOS game it *should* really be displayed at the size of a postage stamp on a modern LCD display... otherwise it's going to look horrible; even scaled. Also, modding old 3D games to run in full HD or higher makes the environment look horribly blocky …

Re: Windows 98 and DOS Question

Anyway, I suggest first play in the pure DOS 6.22 But in 6.22 you are limited to FAT16, which is annoying. On FAT32 you can have a partition as big as you want, subject to mainboard limitations. About 120 GB should be safe as long as it is properly recognized, beyond that you get into LBA48 …

Re: Windows 98 and DOS Question

Hello everyone, so I have a couple of questions. I am working on my first Windows 98 build and I grew up with XP so I don't know much about DOS sadly and want to learn. When I install Windows 98, do I need to install Pure DOS to begin and then install Windows 98 over? No. After you install Windows …
