Re: Toshiba Satellite Pro 430CDT

Gered , hi! Any chance you have factory restore disks for this laptop? Just bought it and soon I'll start digging inside. Wanna try original vision of the system. Thanks! I do not! That would be neat to have though ... You've probably found this via searching around already, but just in case you've …

Re: Bought these (retro) software/OS today

https://i.imgur.com/fhv3jThl.jpg Here I try to correct yet another transgression of my youth. Finally getting a legitimate copy of Microsoft Office 97 Professional! Sealed too. What a tragedy. Let's free it from its cage. https://i.imgur.com/zCkyv4al.jpg Ahhh. That's better. And yes, I do want the …

Newest additions: 1.jpg I missed this before apparently. GoLive. I remember playing with that (I don't think it was the same version as what you have here). Cool stuff actually, but shortly thereafter I started developing a distaste for tools that generated HTML for you, turning my back on previous …

Re: Toshiba Satellite Pro 430CDT

I don't run Windows 98 on my 430CDT. Windows 95 performs very noticeably faster and I don't lose any features I care about either (perfectly stable, usable, etc). Anyway, under Win95 I can run games at 800x600, yes (e.g. Seven Kingdoms). I have not tried 3D games at that resolution (would run …

Re: ACKNEX / 3D GameStudio game projects for DOS

in Milliways
Haha, cool, yeah! That was a lot of fun to work on! I do still wonder if I was the only one who had trouble building the DOS versions of ACK-3D from the code included on the CD-ROM. The windows versions build fine with no hiccups or anything along the way. I didn't mention it here in this thread …

Re: ACKNEX / 3D GameStudio game projects for DOS

I have to say, all the ACKNEX history is quite interesting. I had a copy of Lary Myers' book "Amazing 3-D Games Adventure Set" back in 1997 (two years after it was published) which was essentially a book that described in detail Lary's ACK-3D engine (Lary is of course the original author of the ACK- …

Re: Toshiba Satellite Pro 430CDT

Hi dinth! Sorry to hear about all the troubles you've gone through with this! :'( Here's the link to all of the photos I took during disassembly (plus a bunch more from before and after), but I don't think there is anything in there that will help you beyond what I already shared in the first post …

Re: Retro Development

in Milliways
Would love to see some forum for people interested in this to talk about it (whether that's here on Vogons, or elsewhere). There have been topics about it here in the past, like what pan069 linked, but they get drowned out by other discussions. Understandably, as there are definitely more people …

Re: Do you keep your retro rigs offline?

in Milliways
I keep my retro machines hooked up to my home network, and they can access the internet, yes, but there is no point in doing so. The only reason I keep them hooked up on my home network is to make the transfer of files to/from them easier.
