Re: Intel 740 and ss7 problems

Ill try to follow this guide but my agp settings are already fail safe: agp 1x, aperture size 4mb and so on.. The i740 is going to really struggle on a 4meg AGP aperture size. Would need a larger size if anything. The entire i740 is designed around texturing over the AGP bus, the local memory on …

Re: Intel 740 and ss7 problems

The Intel 740 is really the wrong card to use on a super socket 7 system. It is very heavily focused and reliant on AGP features, and ss7 tend to have a lot of trouble with properly supporting these AGP features. You will probably never get it working well. For SS7 systems, 3dfx Voodoo based card …

Re: I got Ultimate DOOM to install on my Windows XP machine, but it won't install on my Win95 laptop.

Anyone might know the problem? I'm not 100% sure if there's something wrong with my floppy drive now... Use diskcopy to make a clone of the iffy doom disk on the computer it works in, then install it on Win95 laptop. If most other disks work fine on the Win95 laptop, then the drive is likely fine. …

Great FM and DOS compatibility on cards that are NOT overpriced. Quality of ESS cards can be a bit hit and miss though. Some have lots of noise or bad builtin …

Re: CT-4810 in DOS

Yep, different sound cards can use different methods to emulate ISA functions, so compatibility can be better or worse. Another card that might work for you is one of the Aureal Vortex cards. The ES1938S is exactly the same as the ES1938 as far as I know.

Re: CT-4810 in DOS

Are you running the latest BIOS on your motherboard? That might add the IRQ or DMA stuff to your motherboard ... as your motherboard is fairly new (for a DOS retro board) and getting close to the line where compatibility is lost. (just not sure which side on the line this board falls on) You could …

Re: CT-4810 in DOS

First problem I see is too much memory! Remove 512meg ram, windows 98 starts to misbehave with out of memory errors and other weird issues if you have more than 512meg memory installed. There might be workarounds for these problems, to allow more memory to work, but my recommendation is to start …
