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

Well some news about the Apogee Sound System GUS code, I've asked Jim Dosé if there was any source code available that uses hardware mixing instead of software mixing: 2023-01-31 10_52_21-Victor Nieto en Twitter_ _Hi @jim_dose ! We've found out that the Apogee Sound S.png Sadly there is no source …

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

Yeah there is a limitation with the Apogee Sound System, it doesn't like GUS devices with IRQ higher than 7. I've never looked into why exists this limitation, but the developers did it anyway: GetUltraCfg(&os); if (os.forced_gf1_irq > 7) { return (GUS_Error); } Even more they disabled the hardware …

Just tested with OPTI930, everything is ok, -reverseStereo option reverses the channels correctly. I admire how quickly you solve problems. Thank you. Great to hear it's working now. I've been developing this project for so long that even on vacation without my laptop I already knew how to solve …

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

Today I installed a SBPro compatible sound card and decided to test it in Fdoom 0.9.3. As expected, the channels were reversed. I tried to run Fdoom -reverseStereo and did not find any difference, the channels are also reversed. Why is that? Which card model is it? Also what configuration (BLASTER …

Re: Injecting files into a running PCem/86Box machine

in PC Emulation
The local folder CD-ROM in 86box is near to a perfect solution, it basically works similar to a read-only shared folder. No need to update anything, just copy files between the CD mapped drive and the hard disk drive via DOS. With a simple batch script you can copy the whole folder into the hard …

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

Glad to hear you like the new AudioCD feature! This is the best way of playing Doom if you don't own a Roland SC-55. I've created an AudioCD for Doom and another for Doom 2 using the audio captures of this website http://sc55.duke4.net/games.php#doom, the result is truly astounding. By the way I'm …

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

Strange, The MSCDEX is working the first time but reports no AudioCD tracks available, and the second time it reports properly the number of tracks. Maybe there is some incompatibility with the VIDE-CDD driver as @Gmlb256 said, or maybe the driver needs some delay to properly initialize the drive ( …

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

@Darmok Great to hear that! @theelf New test executable, now it writes the MSCDEX initialization process into the file "fdoom.log" with all the steps done. It should show something like this: CD_Init CD_CdromInstalled: Alloc DOS MEM CD_CdromInstalled: Prepare registers CD_CdromInstalled: Call 0x2F …

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

Great, at least CD track changes are working. Does the first time AudioCD initialization error happen on both MSCDEX and SHSUCDX? I'll upload a more verbose test release to check were it fails. I'm guessing there is an error in the MSCDEX initialization process, but only happening on real hardware …
