Re: I want to drill holes into my PowerVR PCX2 to mount a heatsink. Does anyone have access to an x-ray machine?

I'm not familiar with fishing line. Isn't it usually made out of a kind of plastic that would be at risk of melting? It's usually a single nylon thread so it should survive higher temps than the chip.😉 I agree. Monofilament fishing line, which is readily available and inexpensive, has a crystalline …

Re: I want to drill holes into my PowerVR PCX2 to mount a heatsink. Does anyone have access to an x-ray machine?

Another option is to use fishing line and springs to secure the heatsink. The springs of course will be on top of the heatsink or in channels in the heatsink. You would have the fishing line going around the card top to bottom. I've done this before and it works well. This. Fishing line is …

Re: Authorised fan remakes of/sequels to games

I'd add PGForever, a fan remake of Panzer General 1 for modern operating systems. I remember that one. Didn't the author go on to create an inspired modern game called Panzer Corps ? But I don't remember PGForever being officially sanctioned by SSI (or whoever owns the 5-Star General franchise now) …

3Dfx in 1999 regarding non-identical Voodoo2 SLI

Hey everyone, I was researching Voodoo2 SLI information recently to get to the bottom of whether different manufacturers could be relied-on to work together in SLI using period-correct drivers, and I stumbled on this Maximum PC article from January 1999 which quotes Tony Tamasi from 3Dfx directly: …

Re: Best option to connect MIDI (MT32/SC55) to Pentium PC? (re: HardMPU, SoftMPU, cables, etc?)

The UM-ONE’s USB does not work in DOS. The closest you could do with that cable on a retro machine with real Roland hardware is to run it on Windows XP.
