Re: 4.77Mhz dream.

87.5% slowdown is twice as fast compared to 93.75% slowdown. It is comparing 1/16th speed compared to 1/8th speed. The VIA setting "E" is equal to Intel setting "7" though. All the "A" through "F" levels are not present on Intel chipset boards, because there are twice as much increments on VIA …

Re: 4.77Mhz dream.

Only via chipsets allow 6.25% increments with throttle. Other chipsets would allow only 12.5% increments which would end up being twice the speed at highest setting. Are you sure this is the case? Internally, throttle.exe file states that setting "F" is: "hello? is this thing on? (93.75% throttled …

Re: Moslo with a Pentium 4? Any experience?

Thanks! I'm impressed. 2009... Turns out it was me who was late to the throttling party :) Yeah, your verdict corresponds exactly to my experience with VIA motherboards. Even down to the Quarantine game where I first noticed the speed quirkiness. The Intel chipsets do not exhibit any of these …

Re: Moslo with a Pentium 4? Any experience?

I know about 'Throttle'. I even modified that program to make it work on ALi Aladdin V chipsets. Throttle is nice to have as an option, but for many games and programs it does not give smooth results: Stutters in framerate and sound output. It is msred.com that is new to me. I see. Glad to have …

Re: Moslo with a Pentium 4? Any experience?

Admitted, I missed that throttling functionality of the Pentium 4. Believe me, this is normal - nobody seems to, for some reason. This is a mystery to me, since I think that throttle.exe and msred.com (together or separately) are supposed to be a small miracle and a revolution of the retro-PC scene …

Re: Neko Cat

I tried it once - it was on a PC game magazine CD along with other cutting-edge internet stuff 😀 Neko was cute back then, and it is even cute-r now given the nostalgia factor, but I still don't feel like keeping it 😀

Re: NVIDIA 7800GS - How to slow down fan in DOS?

Re: Why and how to setup dual sound (ISA + PCI) ?

What? I'm not confusing! Chipset throttling always was known and never depended on CPU model. Please be precise with your wording. We can't throttle P2/P3, we can only throttle i440/Apollo chipsets. And P2/P3 never can have better experience, P4 can be much slower than P2 and can be much faster …

Re: Why and how to setup dual sound (ISA + PCI) ?

You can throttle it. For example you can't throttle P2, P3. Do not confuse people. Of course you can throttle P2 and P3 via chipset throttling, which gives the same results but is actually a much better experience: no need for two-layer throttling implementation with both throttle.exe and msred.com …

Re: Gateway AMD K7 Christmas Build

Time to bring out my Christmas build computer. Any Ideas on how to make this better ? I am going to add some case fans for sure. Maybe better graphics card. Intel486dx33 , wow. I was pretty sure you were going to build a new Christmas computer each year, seizing the opportunity of making new …

Cool, that was faster than I expected 😀 Try decreasing the hardware acceleration levels until you hit the one without C&C freezing: Filename dxdiag_sound (1).png File size 152.04 KiB Views 173 views If this doesn't work - try this "PCI latency patch" for VIA chipsets: http://www.georgebreese.com/ …
