Re: Descent 3 vs. K6-2+

Weirdly, Quake & UT99 show almost no change with the USB2 card disabled. D3 seems exceptionally sensitive. was about to say that this makes sense considering all of the peripherals you are running off that usb 2.0 card (i'm assuming you don't play quake with pedals etc.), but if it still shows such …

Re: "ATIQuake" miniGL for Q1 & Q2 on Rage Pro

Is it possible, that my CPU is not capable to run this game in OGL? (because in software mode it runs perfectly) the vanilla pr200 is apparently roughly as fast as p90 in quake, which is really scraping the bottom of the barrel for that game, and even more so on higher difficulty settings. an …

Re: SC-55 stopped producing sound

chasm: the rift and matrox cards

continuing from my posts there . ok, this is pretty interesting: i decided to throw in another millennium card i have, not expecting much, but this one is a 2mb version with rev. B PCB (other one 4mb/rev. A), and perhaps more importantly, video BIOS here is 1.9 dated dec 13, 1995, which should be …

Re: Best DOS video card?

game is fully updated with the csmtcpip.exe file already. even when testing it in dosbox it wouldn't run without hexediting ps10.exe, really annoying game to get running. thought i had addressed the possible VESA 2.0 mode issue with NOLFB already, but i did try setting 640x480 and reverting to the …

Re: S3 ELSA winner refresh rate madness

from quick testing, for the supported modes these tools do exactly what they say. as i suspected though, the low-res modes added by S3VBE20 aren't affected by them. testing chasm: the rift on my winner 2000avi vision 968 card, i realized that the distortion issue with 400x300 appears intermittently, …

Re: S3 ELSA winner refresh rate madness

after some digging i did find a tool from ELSA for this. according to readme it supports both automatic setup via monitor DDC polling (up t0 85hz) and manually setting refresh rates per resolution. only possible drawback is that there's no mention of the low-res VESA modes added by S3VBE20, so i'm …

Re: Best DOS video card?

did anyone here test chasm: the rift? on a 4mb matrox millennium i found that under DOS it crashes every time with a runtime error 200, which is really confusing as it made me first think of the CPU speed related issue. a 9x VDM will just close without any message. NOLFB didn't change anything... s3 …

S3 ELSA winner refresh rate madness

i have a couple of s3 vision series cards from elsa (winner 1000, 2000 etc), something they all have in common is non-standard higher refreshrates baked into the video BIOS. it's not that bad if it works, but i've had enough issues with it that i consider it a quite poorly implemented idea. on my …

Re: DOS 6.22 Configuration for Best performance

I was still getting a strange "surging" of speed and then a split second of slowness, one game in Windows 98se shows this off pretty well, Unreal Tournament 1999, I can run and move in the game with a full frame rate but then suddenly every few seconds the game slows down and drops to about half or …
