Re: Welcome to the updated VOGONS

in Milliways
Is it just me, or does the forum now hijack my mouse cursor? Instead of the mouse cursor I have set in my OS settings, it changes it to a weird, thin and very small mouse cursor. Something tells me you've never been to a retro computer site that changes the mouse cursor to look like the one from …

Re: Game pads for DOS ?

I don't know about you guys, but after an hour or two of Warcraft / Starcraft, I would love to have ANYTHING other than a keyboard for directional input. Especially when I'm playing on a couch, with a keyboard in my lap, using my left hand to control the arrow keys on the right side of the keyboard …

Re: PCie-to PCI, PCI to ISA, # of slots multipliers - bridges, risers, backplanes, research, especially for DOS, WIP.

Re: PCie-to PCI, PCI to ISA, # of slots multipliers - bridges, risers, backplanes, research, especially for DOS, WIP.

Realistically, the only way I can see that it is possible to get an ISA card working in a modern machine is if you produce your own device with an ISA slot on it, with your own custom translation protocol on it as well. You would then write a driver that speaks this translation protocol and makes …

Re: Duke Nukem 3D over floppies

Disagree. There were plenty of DOS archivers that didn't even have the option for split volumes or disk spanning. I didn't mention those, did I? I guess I should have not said "all other DOS archivers", but rather "the ones I mentioned". Well you just answered your own question. ARJ and RAR are not …

Re: Duke Nukem 3D over floppies

Disagree. There were plenty of DOS archivers that didn't even have the option for split volumes or disk spanning. Furthermore, after splitting with ARJ you still have to manually copy the files to each floppy individually. PKZIP will do it automatically.

Re: Duke Nukem 3D over floppies

If you have the game installed on a computer somewhere, just use ARJ/RAR or any other archiver that will automatically split the archive into floppy-sized parts, and seamlessly join them on the other hand. PKZIP is the worst solution for it, since it has no sane, built-in way to manage multi-volume …

Re: Oh F*ck this Noise (newest Micro$oft cash grab)

in Milliways
From a Windows application perspective, 98 sucked. One misbehaving program could take down the whole system. But it had great DOS compatibility, which was necessary for most home users back then. Today, not so much. I wouldn't want to run a "modern" Windows 9x on my primary system if such a thing …

Re: Could manufacturers re-release 90s hardware?

in Milliways
I think noone would bother to make a "NES Mini" of PC gaming for the same reasons retro PC gaming is niche even compared to retro console gaming I'm not so sure you know! I reckon that could go OK - a little classic 90's beige case, minature of course, that did HDMI out and accepted a USB mouse / …
