Re: Emulating EAX on any onboard sound hardware?

in PC Emulation
I'm not a Creative and EAX expert, but I have a question: will Sound Blaster X-Fi MB3 software enable EAX 3-4 with games like 'Thief: Deadly Shadows' (requires EAX 3-4) on my ASUS GL703GS laptop with Realtek (ALC295 chipset) + Nahimic drivers? I tried ALchemy Universal 1.00.08 software workaround …

Re: Need help setting up VM with GPU passthrough

in PC Emulation
Yes, I just sometimes get fed up with having to jump through hoops to get a game working which is why I started looking into a "plug and play" solution. Someone mentioned above about modern GPU's not having the drivers in Windows 98. This is true and something I'd overlooked. So I started looking …

Need help setting up VM with GPU passthrough

in PC Emulation
Hi, Just having got hold of Klingon Honor Guard which I can't get to work I was led back to a proper solution for these old games. Then I discovered it ... It was like a revelation to me that this is even possible. I used to have a dedicated machine for Windows 98 games but lost it in a move and …

@Res1s7: What's the URL of your blog? The website-link on your profile at least is dead. That link is dead. I consolidated a lot of sites I run into a single website. Easier to maintain ... http://michaelzfreeman.org/ ... Article will hopefully appear sometime in the next few weeks. If it's not too …

Re: Far Cry

in Windows
Hi. I still get a game that intermittently has combat breaking short pauses when firing, using binoculars, etc. This got me killed a number of times. The game also sometimes stutters when walking around but this is rarer, but always happens at the start of "Research". There's definitely a pause when …

I did a review with my onboard Realtek chip a while ago: Sound Blaster X-Fi MB3 Review There is FEAR recording with ALchemy. Can be compared with this video: Creative ALchemy F.E.A.R. which is on a Sound Blaster Z. Thanks for the video ! Just watched it. After literally years farting around with …

I assume everyone knows about the SilentPatch fix. I saw it mentioned in the thread but not specifically as a high performance fix for the land mass reflections. The way this guy sleuthed the solution is quite impressive. Far Cry 1 forever !

Re: Far Cry

Hi. Has there been any update to this ? Is it a frame rate killer ? Or maybe I just had it setup badly last time. GOG: Should Far Cry bought from GOG have this problem fixed ? Is it responsibility of GOG ? I know it can't always be done. Original IP owner has to want to fix it. Availability of …

Re: Far Cry

I had a black screen too but it went away after waiting a while. The next time I launched Far Cry it worked from the start. Forget it. I was using the latest WineD3D DLL's when its only the one's in the archive provided above that work. FarCry1_Landmass_Reflections_Fix.jpg So, is this it ? WIN ! …

Re: Far Cry

Anyone figure why the 1.6 patch doesn't work in Windows 10 yet? I guessed it might be copy protection remnants but that'd now effect a fully patched Windows 7 and 8 too.. I'm playing using 1.6 in Windows 10 ... no probs so far apart from the usual lack of landmass reflections. I got the reflections …

Re: Far Cry

in Windows
Yes, I know. I was not seeing the test done with a more recent video card. Filename FarCry0005.jpg File size 865.58 KiB Views 3909 views So placing certain dll's in the Far Cry directory where they will be loaded before one's in Windows directory may fix it ? Interesting.

Re: Far Cry

in Windows
Hi, I found this thread after going back to FC1 and noticing the missing land mass reflection. Mods that claim to fix shaders don't. So I noticed the tests done here and decided to dive in and install XP (after all, very useful for other old games :) ). So, it works. This is XP with an Nvidia GT610, …
