Re: Is a Voodoo 2 worth the cost

Something I don't like, tho, is that nglide, the major glide wrapper, doesn't allow me to force 16x AF and 4x AA in graphics card control panel, it just ignores these, and it's noticable. On a voodoo5 I should be able to enable some FSAA and maybe some AF, idk, I don't have one, I want one, I'm …

Re: Is anyone excited for the Nvidia 3000 series cards

The density on the 8nm node uses in the 3000 series is twice as dense as the 12nm used on the 2000 series. The performance on the 3070 is rumored to be close to a 2080ti, to say nothing of the 3080 and 3090. And the pricing is reasonable too. I'm excited. I haven't upgraded PC since I bought a GTX …

Re: Most powerful ATI / Geforce GPUs possible for a Win 98SE Tualatin gaming build - socket 370, AGP 2x/4x

An FX5600 is also overkill. You can't beat free, I would take it. Honestly, my favorite card for windows 98 is a voodoo 3. You don't need that much performance, and the more demanding games that "can run" on windows 98 can also run on XP or even modern windows with whatever stupid overkill hardware …

Re: Most powerful ATI / Geforce GPUs possible for a Win 98SE Tualatin gaming build - socket 370, AGP 2x/4x

If you are benchmarking in windows 98, the geforce 4 cards tend to perform best because of the driver overhead of later cards. This is true even if you are using a faster CPU. I don't have much experience as you probably realised, so would you recommend a GeForce 4 Ti variant over an FX5900 for …

Re: IBM PC 5150 games?

Compatibility won't be perfect, but yes. I have a trident 9000 integrated in my Monotech XT board and it works pretty well for a lot of games. I'm speaking under correction, but the Trident 8900 had a mode utility to enter Hercules, EGA and CGA emulation mode, respectively. Maybe it will still work …

Re: IBM PC 5150 games?

thank you very much! looking on the internet I discovered some interesting things about hardware which is the critical part: 1) the CPU can be changed with a NECv20 which is faster and the clock generator can be changed by bringing the CPU to 8mhz. 2) IBM provides both the CGA card and the EGA for …

Re: IBM PC 5150 games?

I am making a spread sheet for myself for noting things about old games. In my collection I am only up to 1986, so at the moment it works great for this question :). https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1hVLM9Jmvx3_HTmTdMnoGj2D7DJu7g3ZFeEfYcM5yZc4/edit?usp=sharing Mostly it is shitty arcade ports, …

Re: Best WinXP Video Card

There are a lot of games like Splinter Cell 1 that need a very specific video card to run their best. The early XP/ late windows 98 era is where most of the trouble is. Most everything after about 2002 will run fine on anything. Even in modern windows with patches or no CD hacks.

Re: Primer on PC audio?

So in addition to my earlier questions, Im kind of wondering how modern playback works in the case of something like a Realtek audio chip. If I play a game that was recorded using a Roland MT-32 for example, what exactly is the Realtek chip doing? Does it have the ability to emulate all kinds of …

Re: Primer on PC audio?

Gonna keep it high level, but here goes. The first IBM PC was released in 1981 and it had a PC speaker. A PC speaker is little a speaker, attached with a couple of wires to the board, that project noises out of the chassis. The PC speaker is a single voice, square wave that is controlled directly by …
