Re: D-Fend Reloaded (DOSBox frontend)

Would love to see something that is updated to support official and SVN builds, plus some of the popular forks like ECE/DOSBox-X. I keep thinking I should try to take a stab at it, but then I realize that C++ probably isn't the best language, and that I know nothing about good UI design. (Edit: And …

Re: Problematic Windows games list

in Windows
The flaws of someone else's wiki are not within my purview. My biggest problem with Shogo is that at least 90% of the time it won't even launch. I uninstalled it again after testing the new "patch" and only getting the game to actually launch twice. I probably should have made a video for the …

Someone released a bundle of Shogo fixes: https://www.moddb.com/games/shogo-mobile-armor-division/downloads/shogo-fix/#7541889 Unfortunately there I still have serious issues with the game: Game still fails to launch 90% of the time on my laptop. Upper-left text is almost unreadable. I can see a …

I've been burned out on wikis, although I'd probably still edit the VOGONS one if it wasn't effectively dead. Every wiki of any size eventually gets taken over by gatekeepers who revert every edit from people who are not in some blessed inner circle. Anyway, checked PCGamingWiki for the first few …

Re: Problematic Windows games list

IMO a game that has several solutions isn't problematic. Perhaps, but for the purposes of this list it would be nice to list some of these solutions. This list should not merely list games with issues on modern Windows. A list with solutions included becomes a useful reference. Exactly. The goal is …

Seems to work fine with DXWrapper's Dd7to9 and DxWnd. DXGL sort of works (have to alt-tab to view movies). DxWnd doesn't work with full-screen in my experience. You're not supposed to use it in fullscreen. Set it to scale the window to desktop and check "Keep aspect ratio" and "Hide desktop …

Someone developed a pretty solid solution for AMBER: Journeys Beyond some time ago. I was going to mention Simcity 2000 Network Edition, but I recall someone also solved that as well. Would be good to get some details/links on the workarounds for these. Sanitarium is on Steam, but maybe it's a new …

Gruntz. The game gets to main menu and to level selection well. But in-game, it's painfully slow. It's about 7 seconds per frame. I've tried a lot of DirectDraw wrappers and i only got great results with dgVoodoo. VM using Windows XP is also a solution. Seems to work fine with DXWrapper's Dd7to9 …

Running everything bare on Windows 10 isn't what OP asked for, but listing problem games and workarounds to run them from windows 10, which includes virtual machines. VMs are OK to suggest as a workaround if the game has been tested with them and there are no major performance/compatibility/etc. …

Re: AGP Card for MVP3 motherboard (FIC PA-2013)

This reminds me that there was a common hack for my early Gigabyte GA-6BXC (Intel 440BX Pentium II/III) board where people would bypass the AGP voltage regulator with a wire from the ATX pins in order to power newer GPUs. I used to have this hack in place on mine, but removed it at some point for …
