Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
A game being challenging and a game wasting my time are two different things. Limited save states can make sense in some game types and executions but in my experience they are terrible in 90% of the cases. They are mostly the relic of a time when save space was a constraint.

Re: Crystal Audio Chips.. any fans?

Ok so while digging around on my hard drive I found out that I actually already DID put my effort where my mouth was and recorded these quite some time ago. They were recorded back when I did not yet have an external audio card so there is some ground loop related (I think) background interference, …

Re: Crystal Audio Chips.. any fans?

Ok, now that my 5x86 motherboard and CPU are confirmed working, I can actually go ahead with my uber 486 build. That means I can put my effort where my mouth is. Although I expect it will be eventually replaced, I'll set the system up with this sound card and make some recordings. Let me know what …

Re: Crystal Audio Chips.. any fans?

Yeah, but no one seems to have done it despite the claims that one is inferior (which is not my experience..) I only have a CS4289 paired with a CS4232 (the famous Zoltrix card), and I find the FM output harsh and objectionable. Not as bad as CQM, mind you. I never noticed any of the FM clicking …

Re: Crystal Audio Chips.. any fans?

4231 has no internal FM at all - maybe the info assumes an external FM chip (so as to have a cs4231+fm "full" WSS compatible card) AFAIK internal FM started with the broken implementation in the CS4235 chip, it was fixed in CS4236 and carried over to CS4237 and CS4238 - beyond these I have no …

Posting here for the benefit of people who aren't stalkers. i expect next revision of e-wave to be ready in about 4 weeks. if it is all ok, then first batch would be soon after My wallet is (not) ready!
