Re: Vogons Video Announcement Thread

in Milliways
Also mind that most "mods" for DC HL are naive asset replacements under the guise of a "yeah!!! DC finally has !!!" delusion. Let's hope Paranoia isn't one of those cases... So it turns out it's definitely mostly that. Apparently so much was cut from the PC version, it's really more of a de-make …

Noted, thanks! Looks like my burn was good - nice to know I can do that on a "modern" PC. 😀 I'm messing around with the training level now, actually impressed with how well it seems to run.

Re: Vogons Video Announcement Thread

digging into a long-lost collection of Dreamcast homebrew, ON REAL HARDWARE I was too depressed and tired to have noticed the stream, I don't suppose you ever tried running Paranoia on your Dreamcast have you? It's not as advanced as running on PC due to the PC using a custom OpenGL32.dll file to …

Re: Mode Q timings

Tweak16b can set both chained (one video page) & unchained (4 video pages) 256x256 modes, and shows you the timings and stuff right there. It's a bit clunky, but just fire it up, hit 'L' and type '256x256.256' or '256x256c.256' to load the mode. Press 'enter' once the profile is loaded to test it. …

Re: FastDoom 0.4. A new Doom port for DOS, optimized to be as fast as possible for 386/486 personal computers!

This isn't worlds best video, but I was messing around & just wanted to share. Not too bad! I would've played this if it was what I had in 1993. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1KMYSZfvCMHg9GE0KSlKsnmtsYL83YJEZ/view?usp=sharing Fastdoom 0.4, 386DX/25, Cyrix FasMath 387, Tseng ET4000AX, Opti sound …

Coming up is a stream I've wanted to do for a LONG time: today we're digging into a long-lost collection of Dreamcast homebrew, ON REAL HARDWARE, via direct VGA capture! There's gonna be jank, there's gonna be glitches, there's gonna be stuff that straight up crashes - in other words, it'll be …

Re: All Sound Tracker - build

in Marvin \ Sound
AllSoundTracker should run just fine on anything that has an ISA slot - there's no CPU sensitivity as far as I know. Pentium 2, P3, Athlon, etc. should all work. Note: I haven't personally tested machines over ~1 GHz but that's an unlikely scenario anyway. Issues would start showing up earlier than …

Re: All Sound Tracker - build

in Marvin \ Sound
Thanks again! Knowing myself, I would be going after the holy grail. Noise doesn’t bother me so much. I’m more concerned about the 1/8 TRS output being scratchy haha. Do you have any more information on specific variants? (Model numbers?) Money is no object in this case as I’ve set a healthy budget …

Re: All Sound Tracker - build

in Marvin \ Sound
AllSound Tracker works fine for me on my expanded AWE64 + FreeDOS + Pentium MMX 233. AFAIK there aren't really any incompatibilities between the AWE32 & 64. The output quality on even the "cheap" AWE64 cards is substantially improved over most of the AWE32 range, which can be pretty noisy. AWE64 …

Re: All Sound Tracker - build

in Marvin \ Sound
Neat! I did the same thing for Impulse Tracker, which can take good advantage of an AWE32/64 and has some extra features (hardware filters, MIDI output) that way. Here are a few pointers - YMMV, of course: - Skip the 486 and go with a Pentium MMX or Pentium 2 with 64MB RAM - AllSound needs a lot of …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Heh, nice to see you finally got your legit copy. Had no idea about that CD-ROM release. I love this game, but basically agree with your assessment - the "right" way to play is to fire it up, pick a map, and have a blast flying around blowing the crap out of everything & enjoying the music and pixel …

Re: Vogons Video Announcement Thread

@root42 - cool, thanks! I'm also in the "want to learn SMD" camp, although I suspect I need a better iron. I skimmed it already but will give it a proper watch when I have time. :) Tonight's stream on my channel is, um, this: vhsb.jpg It'll probably be far less amusing than I think. We go live in …

Re: Pinball Fantasies no-scroll patch for dosbox 0.65

in DOSBox Patches
@RazaXML: Oh damn, that is seriously awesome. For my "mini" version, it turned out the TN monitor I was using just didn't look good viewing from the "bottom" in portrait mode. It still works as a vertical arcade-cab type setup, but I didn't end up finishing the project. Really cool to see someone …

Re: Descent 3 vs. K6-2+

^^ yeah, I was really surprised by that. The FPS running the demo I made was a bit better than when I played it in-game, maybe because it wasn't handling inputs even though polling the USB card was still hogging resources? Descent 3 supports 3DNow! and was well optimized for the K6 series. I'm not …
