Re: Making DOS 6.22 diskettes from image files

in DOS
Update: PowerISO gives me options for cd, dvd, and bluray disks, but not 3.5" floppy diskettes. Maybe im missing something? NetBSD Disk Image Tool doesnt see the files at all, to even copy to the floppy. Just go to Tools/Write floppy disk image file. Like said already there are a lot of programs …

Re: The FX 5900 runs cool as a cucumber

I noticed during testing that the card doesn't get got at all, so I modified the fan header with a Noctua resistor accessory. It's barely audible now and only manages around about 60C when running 3DMark 2001. At default settings, 3DMark 2001 is not a very demanding test for that card. You need …

Re: Xcom (for DOS)

Thankyou for testing the program. I acquired a 486 motherboard with two different type of 486 processors a month ago, just for the sake of testing and optimizing this program on it. I will build it to a case, and with the help of that board, i will be able to measure which functions consume too …

Re: Xcom (for DOS)

Well I can't ftp the files/directory as is as mtcp does not like that. I did rename them to standard 8.3 format and got it working. But it's way to slow on a 486/66 with 32Mb of ram. Mouse movement is unworkable slow. Also MP3 player is hanging with loading in the statusbar. Other things like …

Re: Xcom (for DOS)

Nice idea but as it is it can't be used on Dos. Filenames and directories are max 8.3 characters on Dos and in the installation zip there are files and a directory longer then that. Also if it is for Dos use pkzip or something like that as the zip file can't be unzipped in Dos with pkunzip (zip …

Re: Avance Logic ALS100 Plus+ REV 2.0

Is the Sound Blaster Vibra 16 a better card even though it will be much more expensive? Does the SB Vibra 16 have High DMA? Thing is that everyone has a different opinion what a better card is. So it's not easy to answer. Both cards have "high DMA" but the Sound Blaster Vibra 16 can use DMA …

Re: Avance Logic ALS100 Plus+ REV 2.0

You always can get sound because if needed you can select adlib or normal sb as an option. For games who don't support a selectable high DMA channel in the setup program you sometimes can just manually modify their config file. But indeed it sometimes can be an issue. That's why I put it in a 386. …

Re: Setting up network shares for Windows 98 on a NAS?

in Milliways
When the time comes that my NAS drops SMB1 support I will just create a Docker container with SMB1 support and connect it to my NAS. Most modern NAS systems support Docker and/or VM's out of the box so it's quitte easy to get it working without to much overhead. Also you can use a super small …
