Re: How much is worth?

I try to wait out the more bargainous purchases, however there are times that I’ve paid a sizable amount for various pieces, either because I needed/wanted something specific in a short space of time, or because there has only been a handful available and prices are steady. My Voodoo 5 5500 PCI …

Re: How much is worth?

Wow, we've gotten from 0 to 100 pretty quick. I think it's important we preserve hardware like this, that's why I try to keep things documented, publicly available and I post those capacitor threads every once in a while. It's not as much of a collector's item for me, but it's something I can study …

Re: General MIDI and AWE64 issues

when you use CTCU to set PNP configuration, copy the config (ctpnp.cfg) to C:\ so CTCM can see it (otherwise you will get defaults). sounds like maybe you have mouse using same IRQ as sound or something. No way, the mouse has IRQ 12. However, what does in fact have the same IRQ as sound (5) is the …

Re: General MIDI and AWE64 issues

Sounds like some serious resource conflicts going on if it’s able to destroy the file system, have you tried a different mouse driver ? No. And turning it off doesn't help. In general, any and every hang in DOS, nevermind what causes it, is a potential filesystem killer. All you gotta do is …

Re: General MIDI and AWE64 issues

I have found out that if I unload CuteMouse and reload it, the errors are getting more severe. Perhaps it should be noted that my system normally invokes Copy code to clipboard 1 CTMOUSE whereas I did it with Copy code to clipboard 1 CTMOUSE /P /M /O

General MIDI and AWE64 issues

Hi, I'm having exactly the same issue as this op https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?t=11199 I'll be tracking here what I have: - FreeDOS 1.3 RC5 - SoundBlaster AWE64 Gold with 28MB upgrade - AWEUTIL 1.35 - CTCM 1.06 - Epox EP-D3VA It appears that for me, setting the PNP OS to "No" yields no effect …

GZdoom 4.1.2b supposedly last version for XP since newer Windows vers compiled with VS2019 using v142 toolset. https://msfn.org/board/topic/176299-latest-version-of-software-running-on-xp/page/18/?tab=comments#comment-1171775 It's broken for Windows XP x64. You can patch 4.1.2b and compile it …

Re: Alias for DOS?

in DOS
BTW, the pico version shipped with FreeDOS 1.3 does still use UNIX style line ending (Line Feed = LF). It's possible to compile the DOS port of pico in a way to use CR LF (Carriage Return + Line Feed) line ending, but the version shipped with FreeDOS isn't compiled with that option and there is no …

Re: How much is worth?

The only thing time I regret procrastinating is when 2 sc-55 popped up a couple of months apart for something like 70€. At that time I was saving my down payment and was really reluctant to spend on anything for non-essentials. I missed a PSX Link cable and a fanless GeForce 1650 Ti like this :[ …

How much is worth?

As all of you I'm very much aware of scalping going on in retro hardware markets. Let's have a discussion about how much each part is worth to you. I'm doing this, because I'm afraid we'll sooner see the hardware destroyed and rotted away rather than sold at a reasonable price. To really rub it in - …

Yare yare daze jiji, that's a really huge tutorial. Here's the gist of it in Linux commands, so someone like me who prepares stuff for FreeDOS can make do without Windows. Well, us old folks do like to ramble on sometime. :D On that note, I'll be updating the guide soon to include some of …

AWEUTIL.COM divides by zero

in Marvin \ Sound
So I tried to load a huge soundfont. I've first taken https://github.com/wrightflyer/SF2_SoundFonts/blob/master/Masterpiece.sf2 and converted it to .sbk with Awave Studio. It checks out, it's 29,282,950 bytes large, will fit real snug into the DRAM of a fully upgraded AWE64 Gold - which has 29,360, …
