Re: Getting to run few stubborn DOS games

You're on the right track, but Throttle does slow things down to a crawl if run without the "-C" parameter (telling it to NOT disable L1 cache, which is the case by default). Anyway, there is now a new utility including both the chipset throttling and CPU's own ODCM (which is another 12.5% increment …

Re: ESS Solo-1 - pure PCI vs. SB-link

On ICH-enabled Intel chipsets (i810 and up), the situation is worse, but you can get there by using a couple of tricks :) Here's my attempt on covering the ISA SBPro compatibility with this card as a single sound source on a Pentium III DOS gaming rig: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=62&t= …

Re: Your oldest favorite computer game?

Love Street Rod but could never finish the road track in Street Rod 2 Yeah, me neither: I've finished the first one multiple times, but the Mulholland Drive race in 2 is a vicious b**ch! Btw, according to a youtube comment I've read recently, turns out you can shuffle the placement of the car- …

Thanks for the interesting thread, OP! Will definitely check out Hidden Agenda. As for me, it is Street Rod 2 (1990). I've found out about it in a 2000's PC games magazine, which had a column on old DOS games. This game is to American Graffiti what Need for Speed: Underground is to Fast & Furious: …

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 …
