Re: A modern DOS Quake engine by Qbism

The Descent code wouldn't be very useful anyway due to a license conflict IIRC. Well no, but the code can be studied, and might give some 'inpsiration' for making the Quake-renderer faster on 486. But I think with two simple changes you should already get quite far: 1) Make the rasterizer perform …

Re: A modern DOS Quake engine by Qbism

Second of all, I think that it would be an interesting project (that I would start if I had the time and/or skill) to try to write a quake engine specifically optimized for the 486. I'd really like to see this. Here's some nice inspiration to get you going with someone doing an excellent job at ' …

Re: Donkey.NET

in Windows
I have given this game a quick look, and the problem seems to be that it relies on dx8vb.dll, which is not included with Windows Vista or newer. There are also a few pretty nasty bugs in the code. The most important bug is that it tries to run the rendering in a separate thread. This means that a …

Re: Are there any games that are incompatible with newer versions of DOS?

in DOS
I don't consider DOS 7 a proper DOS, since it is not a standalone OS, but rather the DOS-portion of Win 9x. Because of this, it requires quite a bit more memory than standalone versions of DOS, and I have run into some problems because of that. It is physically impossible to free up enough …

Re: The Pentium D 995: A study into a world without Conroe for make benefit glorious forums of VOGONS

Surprisingly the Pentium D did not gain much from increased FSB, without HT there isnt much need I guess. The Pentium EE *did* have HT however (which effectively made it the first 'quadcore' x86?). So it would be interesting to know what would happen with a Pentium D at high clockspeeds and HT …

Re: re: MFC42.DLL

in Windows
it seems strange that u would need to install visual c++ packages to run a precompiled app.. It depends on how the app is compiled. Since MFC is used by many applications, it makes sense to use a shared library rather than compiling the same library into each application statically. So a lot of …
