Re: Virtual PC rumour

in PC Emulation
Actually I bet Xbox games are all basically DirectX. The XBOX2 is using a IBM PowerPC chip but a GPU that is likely very similar to a DirectX-supporting PC GPU. So, they could perhaps just need to emulate the CPU, and a triple core PowerPC at 3.5Ghz (assuming the leaks and rumors are correst) …

Wing Commander 4 Win95

in Windows
I'm playing Wing Commander 4's win95 version (works in xp!). My problem is my Logitech Rumblepad is sort of messed up with it, even with the actual Logitech drivers instead of generic XP drivers (or 98 drivers cuz I tried it in 98) Basically, I can't fly. The left analog stick does nothing with the …

Re: TIE Fighter CD experience with DOSBOX

Oh bummer. The VIA VT8235 sounthbridge doesn't have DOS drivers....VIA only supplies DOS drivers for 686A/B. So, that eliminates running TIE in pure DOS with any sound. I doubt I could get a USB joystick working either. Inside Win98 I can get sound SBPRO audio out of the southbridge since the …

Radeon VESA & SVGA

in PC Emulation
I was trying to set up Win98 and VDMSound for it. Decided to just try out TIE Fighter without sound to see if the SVGA would work. Nope, it's a corrupted mess. You can sort of see the game (it doesn't lock up either) but it's like you're seeing slices of the screen all stretched out....very odd. I'm …

Re: TIE Fighter CD experience with DOSBOX

It's almost not playable really. If I put it in VGA it's super playable, but SVGA is just so much more demanding. I just installed WIn98SE and am going to play with it in there. I think native VESA will work fine in 98, and DOS32A should make it easier to get up and running. Oh, and I found DOS …

TIE Fighter CD experience with DOSBOX

Ok, I've spent many hours messing with TIE Fighter and DOSBOX. I'm using the latest CVS compile from the Unofficial DOSBOX Forum . Here's my DOSBOX.conf: [sdl] # fullscreen -- Start dosbox directly in fullscreen. # fulldouble -- Use double buffering in fullscreen. # fullfixed -- Don't resize the …

Re: Yamaha SoftSynthesizer S-YXG50

I threw on headphones and played a little TIE Fighter. Yes, the Yamaha S-YXG50 is absolutely obviously superior to the MS synth. Hell, it's probably equal or better than the Synergi 8MB SF2 I upload to my 8MB SB32 for DOS games. I think the variation, chorus, and reverb that it applies really helps …

Yamaha SoftSynthesizer S-YXG50

I'm using DOSBOX on my laptop which doesn't have any snazzy midi capabilities (without getting a Audigy 2 NX or Extigy: not an option.) I've been messing with the DirectX Microsoft GS Synth and also trying to get Yamaha's SoftSynthesizer S-YXG50 to work. I have yet to get anything except the MS …

Re: Ensoniq sound card in DOS

in PC Emulation
Ensoniq's Soundscape cards didn't need EMM386. The AUDIOPCI, a very cheap chip which Ensoniq created to try to cut costs, started that. In fact, Soundcapes didn't even need a TSR of any sort. They just ran an init prog that uploaded firmware to the card's RAM for the onboard processor to run. :) If …

Favorite ISA Sound Cards

in PC Emulation
This is one of my favorite pieces of hardware from DOS times. The hardware wavetable MIDI cards just shocked me when I went from my SBPro to a Ensoniq Soundscape. Doom was unbelievable, TIE Fighter was so much more powerful, etc. It was amazing. The best part was the interactive sound that game …

Re: Ensoniq sound card in DOS

in PC Emulation
A Sound Blaster PCI 64 is an AUDIOPCI. Ensoniq's AUDIOPCI will definitely run in DOS. Creative bought out Ensoniq partly for their DOS driver which emulates a SBPro almost perfectly. Creative couldn't get it working. Heck there was a special connector on some boards for the freak AWE64 PCI that …
