Re: Maximum Network Speed on Win 95/98/SE

For raw throughput I would recommend iperf3, as it's simple, lightweight and powerful. You can run an iperf3 server on a known-good device on your LAN (i.e. modern PC) and then run the client on your Win9x. Server: iperf3 -s Client: iperf3 -c [server IP] Note: iperf3 seems to be unsupported on …

Re: Best Windows 95 Disk benchmark tool?

in Milliways
I was having a really hard time getting any benchmark to run on Windows 95 (RTM version, oldest). Roadkill's disk benchmark, HD tach, SiSoft Sandra 99 and 01 all crash with various DLL or page fault errors. The only thing that worked for me was SiSoft Sandra 98 (somewhat hard to find. Found it on …

Re: Low peformance in Vietcong: Fist Alpha, on old PC

I'd say you need an Athlon 64 system to fully enjoy this game. Can confirm this helps. I'm now playing it on my WinXP box with an Athlon 64 X2 5200+ and GTX275, at 1600x1200. Vsync on, and it's like butter. GPU use is pretty low, occasionally spiking to 50%. CPU use generally much higher, and I've …

Re: Low peformance in Vietcong: Fist Alpha, on old PC

I just tried the game on a "period correct" powerful system (Athlon XP 2100 MHz, Geforce 4) on maximum settings. I get 30-40 FPS in most situations, but in open areas with a long line of sight such as the military base, there are some nasty dips down to 15-20 FPS. Lowering the resolution had no …

Here's the performance matrix from the magazine I was talking about (PC Games), I thought it's pretty interesting. Their definition of "optimal gameplay" (green) is around 30 FPS, I believe. https://archive.org/details/pcgames200305/PC-Games%202003-05/page/n115/mode/2up They also mention that …

I think you're just CPU limited. There was a big FPS drop when you lowered the CPU speed from 1800 to 900 MHz, and the photo of the two laptops shows 1600 MHz (33 FPS) vs. 1800 MHz (37 FPS). This is not far off from an Athlon XP system with 2000 MHz that reaches 35 FPS. And the newer graphics …

Re: Low peformance in Vietcong: Fist Alpha, on old PC

in Windows
I had the same issue, I only get 15 FPS on my Duron 700 machine no matter what video card. Turns out that this game is quite CPU heavy, the box definitely lies by saying 500 MHz or better. I dug out two magazine reviews from the time and their "performance report" boxes show that a 1400 MHz CPU is …
