Re: 15 FPS Doom 2 with Pentium MMX 200

in DOS
What is going on. Is this the best a Pentium MMX 200 can do? Is my memory from '94 rose tinted? Try increasing the ISA bus frequency in the BIOS SETUP (that is decreasing the clock divider). You may also try other FSB/CPU clock combinations, as to increase the ISA bus frequency, even if it slows …

Re: Joystick woes and questions

With many old games (i.e. Montezuma´s revenge), the joystick will only work correctly with a 4.77 MHz machine. Even a Turbo XT (10 MHz) can break joystick support on these games. Why didn´t IBM go with digital joystick, like Atari, Amiga, MSX and almost all 80´s vidogame consoles.
