Re: The YMU762 Research

Ah, I see. That makes sense why it was unportable then. Still, he used them and had enough familiarity with the MA-2 to write a tracker. He might have some insight to the chip anyway, at least at the register level.

Re: The YMU762 Research

I would be in favor of a Discord server. That could be very useful, if only as a way to coordinate findings and be more rapid and casual than the "forum post" format. There's a lot of information that needs finding and a lot of potential social contact that needs to be made, say with Delek, kb77, …

Re: The YMU762 Research

Is there anywhere to reliably get a supply of MA-3/5/7 chips from? MA-7 is very poorly documented as well, the document I usually reference for Yamaha FM chip info ( https://gist.github.com/bryc/e85315f758ff3eced19d2d4fdeef01c5 ) can't find any detail about them. I'd also like to add that Deflemask …

Re: The YMU762 Research

Please do figure out this chip! I've been fascinated by it since I learned of it. The YMF825 is extremely similar FM-wise, it pretty much seems to just be the FM synth from the MA-3, but without the voice-doubling in 2op mode. Not only does it have so many FM voices, it has a bunch of different …

Re: Would you be interested in an x86-based alternative to the Raspberry Pi, optimized for retro gaming?

I have a conjecture that a round trip time can be kept under 20ms and that would be good enough for anyone (except speedrunners) no? :) It depends where the server is located. At bare minimum you have to contend with the speed of light. New York to LA is 13 milliseconds at the speed of light …

Re: Would you be interested in an x86-based alternative to the Raspberry Pi, optimized for retro gaming?

Unfortunately, emulation/virtualization is still horribly flawed. I tried playing Quake II, Far Cry, Doom 3, The Sims, and some other games in an XP virtual machine. Pretty much anything that wasn't based on the Quake III engine had severe problems. Current virtual machine solutions (VMWare, …

Re: The Saga of the Artist Graphics 2000i PCI

I'm on the lookout for any OpenGL or other 3D testing software that works in DOS or W95 if you know of any. GLQuake? :P Real answer: I guess you're looking for an OpenGL capabilities viewer? I poked around a bit but couldn't find one that works for 9x. GLQuake would be a very rough way to find out …

Re: Does anyone recognize this Sound Card?

It looks it has dual OPL2 setup, and is probably SB compatible too, and probably is a reimplementation of SB Pro. It might be quite interesting to get if it is not expensive. I'm not so sure. If those two at the top of the cards are OPL2s, why do their stickers have different roman numerals on them …

Re: "...not a valid win32 application"

in DOS
If that 32 bit system does what you need, why not? A 64 bit OS requires a 64 bit mobo, plenty of perfectly good mobos are still in use that are not 64 bit compatible ...should they all be scrapped? A dual overhead cam, multiport, 500hp, V-12 engine is great, but not every car needs one. A 64 bit OS …
