Re: Looking for Elvira 2 Disk 3 image

in DOS
Just to update. I got the copy from eBay, and found two things; * Disk 4 is bad, but I don't care because my original is still good.. but... * This is a different version of the game with the black screen installer. Mine has a more modern blue screen installer. The disk contents are quite different …

Re: Looking for Elvira 2 Disk 3 image

in DOS
The best I could achieve is the listing of contents of the three archives on the disk using 7zip. LHA/LHarc were unable to extract the information at all in DOS. I'm pretty sure the contents listed by 7zip are truncated too for PC8.LZH and PC9.LZH. The only file that copied successfully from the …

Re: Looking for Elvira 2 Disk 3 image

in DOS
I made lzh (lharc.exe in MS-DOS) archives with english version vga files. Dont compare the sizes of lzh archives, just try it. Vydricak The installer took the files fine. Hopefully those VGAs are the same ones my disk 3 had. I also tried a few online versions and compared their files to mine, and …

Re: Looking for Elvira 2 Disk 3 image

in DOS
Thank you. Those are almost ok. The sizes don't quite match my English version. I put them on the disk and the installer didn't complain, which means the game will run, but I might be surprised at some point in the game with Spanish text in some scene or something 😅 I'm attaching the comparison …

Re: Looking for Elvira 2 Disk 3 image

in DOS
Thank you. So far I haven't received any matching copy, nor was I able to find such an image at the usual sites. I'm attaching a directory listing of the disk (yes, it still reads the directory properly). 20210108_090618.jpg Pay attention to the size of the files. The file names may match files from …

Looking for Elvira 2 Disk 3 image

in DOS
Hi all, I'm looking for an image of Disk 3 of Elvira II Jaws of Cerberus (original English). This is the less-common 720k 3.5" DD version (it has 5 disks in total). My original disk has developed bad sectors and it won't read anymore unfortunately. Hopefully someone has it. Thank you all! 20210108_ …

Re: Terminator 2029 installer reboot

in DOS
Interesting. So like touch memory at some single location, wait a bit, then assume the whole cacheline is fetched, then write something on the same location bypassing the cache somehow, while whatever you read within the cacheline will be served from the cache? I'm interested to learn what would be …

Re: Terminator 2029 installer reboot

in DOS
Yes it works perfectly thank you! Any known references/documentation on these 386 prefetch instructions? Maybe a patch or something can be made to NOOP those instructions? Cheers!

Terminator 2029 installer reboot

in DOS
Happy new year everyone! I'm trying to install Terminator 2029 from its original disks, and INSTALL.EXE causes an immediate machine restart. My CPU is Intel Xeon W3520 2.67GHz, so definitely not your good ol' 386 :) However, I tried a VirtualBox DOS setup and resulted in the same behavior. Finally, …

Re: X58/i865/V880 - Yamaha7x4/AureaV1/2 pure Dos7.1- compatibility list/research/ ultim. drivers configs, WIP- gurus ne

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried the service pack but it didn't make a difference. However, I managed to solve the problem eventually. It's due to how the motherboard is exposing my drives in IDE emulation mode. The first hint to the solution was that during a clean Win98SE installation, I get an …

Re: X58/i865/V880 - Yamaha7x4/AureaV1/2 pure Dos7.1- compatibility list/research/ ultim. drivers configs, WIP- gurus ne

Thanks RayeR. Yes I confirm that I have the BIOS setting SATA to IDE mode. This machine is giving me quite some grief with Windows. This is the best I could reach now, Win98 SE with sound+gfx drivers, but no CD drive yet. Maybe you can try nSP update for Win98 if it helps. I'm not familiar with nSP. …

Re: X58 + Yamaha7x4/AureaV1/2 Sound-pure Dos7.1- compatibility list(+i865/VIA) +research+ultimate configs, WIP- gurus ne

If someone from Europe would be interested in my old proven HP z400 machine its for sale: - HP z400 case (silver, black front) with HP PSU 475W - MB - CPU Xeon 5660 6 core / 12 threads - 2.8 GHz only 95W TDP so it could be still very quite with big Air cooler - RAM 8 GB DDR3 ECC 1333 4x 2GB - some …

Re: YMF7X4 on ICH5/865PE; should I?

in DOS
Crusader No Remorse is one of my favorite games. I really wish it can be made to work with DSDMA. Interestingly, even the MOD2AMF.exe tool that comes on the game's CD causes the same machine restart behavior. Definitely the game's sound routines are enemies with DSDMA.
