Re: Did you create maps for games?

in Milliways
I've made some maps back in the day. The first editor I used was Lode Runner built-in editor for ZX Spectrum. Once I got PC it was Wolfenstein 3D and few other games. Making maps for Doom and Heretic was cumbersome until a better crop of editors appeared like WadAuthor. Then it was Duke3D and I used …

Re: Fortex: Vortex2+YMF744

Looking forward to this! Aureal Vortex cards were always my favorite at that time. Would love to buy assembled board when it's done. As I understand this is essentially a Vortex2 card with real YMF for genuine OPL FM (instead of crappy software emulation Vortex cards had), right? Time to dig up a …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

Check if there's any of those PCIe x1 slots is linked to CPU and not chipset, it might help. GPU going through chipset is never going to be good performance. But yeah, E1(S) is a 4x slot card, but it may work with 1x slot too, albeit limiting bandwidth is probably going to limit what maximum …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

I am wondering if someone could recommend an ideal PCIE VGA capture card for the purpose of playing games - not capturing/recording them? In other words, retro machine outputs VGA to the capture card, which then turns up in a window (perhaps streamed by VLC) on the modern host machine. I made VCS …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

Yeah, we're quite lucky those used professional cards are available at such affordable prices on ebay, while supply hadn't been exhausted yet it's not unlimited either. E2S is just a dual-head full height PCIe card, it is the same as E1S in every other regard. There was a sale of those a year ago at …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

Yeah, well, that's analog VGA capturing, it was never going to be easy. We are lucky though there are good solutions, like aforementioned Datapath cards. I think I have G450 PCI with DVI as well, though being a recent item I got I haven't been able to give it a good test run yet. In my experience …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

You can feed either digital or analog signal to Datapath cards with DVI input, no need for any special cables, just a decent VGA cable and passive converter to DVI-I. Might get confusing if video card has both analog and digital video output through DVI, in which case it will default to digital …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

In that case yeah, it'll cover analog VGA capture for you as long as you don't push resolutions and refresh rate too high for it to handle. Dual-head variant sometimes can be found at same price as single. Be aware there are models with PCI-X interface and some sellers mistakenly label them as plain …
