Re: WP32 McCake : MT32 compatible waveblaster board

Well that is going is make it hard to install on a CMI3880 and Vortex 2 cards. There have always been cards that aren't compatible with some wavetable daughterboards. There were some boards that were taller than a normal ISA card so the connector wasn't on the edge. But then there were very short …

Re: EAX or A3D for Win98SE?

Under the right circumstances it is possible to use both. Not together mind you, but switching which one is the primary display in the bios and installing both drivers. Depending on the game you might not even need to do that. I remember quite a few Win9X games offering the ability to choose which …

Re: EAX or A3D for Win98SE?

If you have the spare slots just have both like I do. I have an MX-300 card and it has an IO expansion header on the back of the card, this exposes SPDIF which I have connected to the digital CD header of an Audigy Platinum. Speakers are connected to the Audigy and all Aureal audio is piped over …

Re: Roland SC-88 MIDI synth and Dosbox-x

Now if there was a way to control the MIDI and ADLIB volumes at the same time, that would be sweet. You generally aren't using MIDI and Adlib at the same time. Adlib is generally used for music, though some older games that only had Adlib support would use it for some sound effects. You might be …

Re: Roland SC-88 MIDI synth and Dosbox-x

After you enter those setting in the dosbox.conf file you then need to manually configure the game to use General MIDI from each game's setup program. SCUMMVM works completely differently than DOSBox. It replaces the game's engine, while DOSBox gives you a virtual DOS environment to run the original …

Re: Retrostation PC not available in the US

in Milliways
I see, thanks. My reason for being mildly interested in this is that it's small enough to conveniently take with me when I'm working away from home, and it runs PC games as well as emulators. I know there are many other similar systems, but the thing that attracted me to this is just that all the …

Re: Retrostation PC not available in the US

in Milliways
This is the same hardware as the GMK NucBox that ETA Prime reviewed. You can look at those videos to get an idea of its performance. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=eta+prime+GMK+NucBox They are available on the US Amazon for ~$200 if you search for "GMK mini PC J4125" and are …

Re: Revisiting an x86-based alternative to the Raspberry Pi, optimized for retro gaming

I wasn't thinking of just Nvidia/AMD GPUs, maybe some low end smartphone chip can be interfaced through PCI and supports the right things ? Anything low end these days would be much better than what's been made at the time and it would never compete with crypto miners (nobody mines on gt730 cards …
