Re: FastDoom 0.4. A new Doom port for DOS, optimized to be as fast as possible for 386/486 personal computers!

FastDOOM 0.6 486, Doom 1.9 Shareware, Demo3 Asus VL/I-486SV2GX4, DX2 @ 66MHz, 1MB L2 Cache, 24MB RAM, 1GB CF HDD, ARGUS Prototype Rev. 02 #0 Cirrus Logic 5428 VLB -> 43,023fps Ati Mach32 VLB -> 42,851fps Those are impressive results. This 486 I'm testing on doesn't have any L2 cache. If you have …

Re: FastDoom 0.4. A new Doom port for DOS, optimized to be as fast as possible for 386/486 personal computers!

Here are my timedemos for v0.6. I was thinking that my randomly chosen demo (demo3) maybe wasn't the most intensive one, so also tried demos 1 and 2 (Ultimate Doom v1.9). I also took the opportunity to run the game in real mode without any driver TSRs. That's not my default boot mode so I probably …

Re: FastDoom 0.4. A new Doom port for DOS, optimized to be as fast as possible for 386/486 personal computers!

I tried out v0.4 and v0.5 on my 486 DX4 120MHz/VLB, and while they both have a slighter lower realtics count than v0.3 the difference is very small (3612 vs 3601). It is very warm today though, compared to when I benchmarked v0.3 :P I guess you are using the 486 build, can you test the 386 build …

Re: Windows XP Updates?

I got myself a slipstreamed XP SP3+. It wasn't easy: VirtualBox 6.0 and 6.1 keep crashing randomly for some reason and WSUS 3.0 (on Windows Server 2003) had the hardest time synchronizing. The synchronization errors aren't new if Google is to be believed, but I had to try many times before it would …

Re: things you don't do with a retro PC

Solver - I do like making an old troubled PC work again, sometimes spending too long coaxing some old machine into use only to not really use it! That's me! I occasionally play a game on these old machines but I spend way, way more time on building, configuring and fixing things. Those old, tiny …
