Different Versions of Mixerset and Aweutil...

in PC Emulation
Was just thinking - actually, 1.) How many different versions of Mixerset and Aweutil exist? 2.) How does each of them differ with others in terms of functionality? - For eg. - Some version of mixerset has the ability for Output/ Input Gain x2 - x4. And some 3DSE and so on.. 3.) Does anyone have a …

Re: nVidia 6800 or ATI 9800?

in PC Emulation
I wonder if it offers full EAX functionality on Win98 though. For example, do you still get 7.1 channel when playing EAX games in win98? Win98SE should be able to handle 7.1 channel, since in this, there is no real time sound decoding going on a la Dolby Digital. I may be wrong, but, I guess, …

Re: nVidia 6800 or ATI 9800?

Yep, Audigy 2 ZS is much more better. I have one too. But not using it. Have to check the install cd, though, if there are drivers for win98. It should have. If I'm not mistaken, only X-Fi cards onwards have abandoned w98 system. Audigy 2 ZS requires W98SE as minimum, I think.

Re: nVidia 6800 or ATI 9800?

in PC Emulation
If you need a "fast 98 box", I suggest you go for 6800 or 9800 since these will, imho, provide the best graphics for a Win9x based system. And you've got good sound cards there too. And again, use the S3 Diamond Stealth card for dos games. That's a wonderful card for dos. I'm still looking for one. …

Re: nVidia 6800 or ATI 9800?

in PC Emulation
I agree with swaaye. S3 is very comfortable with Dos games and vice-versa. If you wanna use dos games, use s3. If you wanna use W98 games, use ATI RADEON 9800 XT or PRO. Games of W98SE era have almost been saturated with 3D technology, unlike nowadays where the fastest card is STILL not enough. So, …

Transparent Real-Time nVidia Logo in D3D Games...

in PC Emulation
Last time when I had my GeForce Ti 4200, the drivers of that era had an option to display the nVidia transparent logo while playing D3D games. Nowadays that option is no more there. Is there any software or utility to display such logo while playing games? I thought it was cool, though many didn't …

Re: Interest in original Soundblaster disks?

in DOS
Yes, please. I will be greatful if you can upload the AWE32 (including the Win95 install disks) orginial install disks as my classic system's SB32PnP card's driver disks have long been taken by my cousin and they're lost from there. Most of the websites provide the basic drivers set to enable the …

MT-32 in Windows Vista

in MT-32 General
Hi. Has anyone tried installing the MT-32 emulator under Vista? It doesn't seem to work: It says the "sytem cannot find the specified file". The same message I got when trying to install under Windows 98. Only XP works with the emulator. Any other opinion or solution? Thanks.

Re: Dosbox FullScreen Sounds Slow

And it's great, and never had any problems with it. And just in case anyone having problem with Ultima 6 and …

Re: Windows 3.11, SB Audigy & Geforce. Please Help.

in Windows
Why I want to use Win3.11? Well, it's just for nostalgic sake, if for nothing else. I've been using the pc from late 80's with games like Starfleet, Loadrunner, Karateka,etc,etc.. Sometimes, I just feel like collecting and playing all the classics. Even the early 90's saw some very good batch of …

Re: Windows 3.11, SB Audigy & Geforce. Please Help.

in Windows
You see, I'm having 3 different partitions in my hard disk for 3 different OSs : WinXP Pro, W98 SE, and the Classic DOS 6.22 & Win3.11 FWG combo. I can multiboot to each partition, since all these are bootable partitions. I have no prob with WinXP and W98 since I have installed both the drivers for …
