Re: SoftMPU project needs your help! (game & sound card testing)

in SoftMPU
I have currently no setup with 386MAX, though if you try then change the memory manager detection part to be skipped and default to the EMM386 way. If it is fully compatible then this should do. If that works we have to adapt the memory manager detection a bit. It would also helpful to know which …

Re: Nexgen - the 486 killer - WIP

Nice NexGen System. Where did you connect the Sanyo CDR-H94RSA SCSI CD-ROM drive? I don't see a SCSI controller card in your system pictures. Do you use some kind of SCSI <-> IDE converter on the Promise Controller? What is your experience with other graphics cards in this system? With my ET4000W32 …

Re: Appian Graphics Gemini PCI - S3 Savage MX 16MB

So what are actually the PCI Vendor / Device IDs of your card? Does it also use the 86C290 chipset? Since there was the question about benchmarks here, I did a few with the Spectrah Dynamics Inc LD-S370 Savage MX https://retronn.de/imports/hwgal/hw_s3_savage_mx_spectrah.html See the second …

Re: DScaler 4.2.3a

Hmm, I have not touched the video recording part, but maybe progressive output somehow interfers with that. I have to look into this. What would be the advantages for capturing with DScaler when going from AVI to MKV? The only thing I can imagine is writing the DAR to the container.

Re: VGA Capture Thread

I don't know, 720 x 400 would show as 4:3 if you don't have a choice of display, but I personally never end up squishing it when viewing in a capture window. By the way, have you done testing on the effects of interpolated scaling on temporal image quality on YouTube? I've noticed it tends to end …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

If you capture YUV the OSSC doubling is a good option. If you capture RGB it is on your side where you do the color space conversion. As you upscale for youtube anyway, it makes sense to already provide the encoder with the RGB data and let it do the conversion. Aspect ratio: In a general case there …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

I use Epiphan cards and made some years ago a tool for such optimizations. It is much easier to tune the stuff when you have the numbers at hand and don't have to judge some noise in screenshots. It was posted in this thread here: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=26661&p=370770#p370770 …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

AFAIR there are no 4K capture cards that capture RGB. (Correct me if you know one) Every flat panel screen samples 400p modes as 720, so e.g. 320x200 is displayed wrong since it requires sampling with 640 pixels.

Re: Cirrus Logic Eagle II 8-bit VGA card

I recently got a similar card, long, 8 bit ISA, with CL-GD520/540. Thanks for the DIP switches, that helped. My card has an 32kB Eagle II BIOS V2.12 from 1988. When switched to MDA the BIOS size shrinks to 4 kB. If there is interest I can upload the image.
