Re: EAX appreciation thread

ah yes quake 4 support EAX 5 , it works perfect with dsoal sound wrapper in modern hardware + any soundcard btw another game from such era is Doom 3 ,support EAX 4 but the sound is very buggy in EAX 4, it was implemented later in the patch 1.3 , so is prefereable to play this game without EAX or …

Re: Graphics issue with Homeworld 2

Which OS and driver version are you using? You may need to choose an older driver than the newest one that supported your GPU in question, since Homeworld 2 came out in 2003 if I remember correctly. Drivers from circa 2004 may have the best chance of working? For a 9700 Pro, I'd recommend the …

Re: Fastest ISA video card for Doom

Overall, "period correct" machines are not enough to play id games comfortably. I was about to write "that's true up until about Rage came out," then I thought a bit more and realized that id's game engines and performance went something like this: Commander Keen (1990-1991): 286 or 386 were …

Re: Your opinion on the ATi Rage IIC and Rage Pro

I just had the strangest thing happen to my Rage Pro Turbo in the past couple of weeks. I'd installed the 2002 drivers under DirectX 8 like I always have, but when I tried to launch DOS games under Windows that used VESA SVGA moves I'd get a blank screen while the game continued to play in the …

Re: CD audio in Win 98 with SB Live! 5.1 ?

This may seem like an obvious question, but is the CD-audio muted in the mixer? I know that on a SB Live if you have "What U Hear" selected as a recording source, sometimes the analog CD audio can get muted if you have your Line-In un-muted. I also ran into a similar problem thinking that my Vortex …

Re: What’s you Favorite ISA Sound Card ?

in Milliways
The AWE64 is about as good as it gets for an ISA sound card for me. It has excellent 16-bit audio quality, great compatibility since it runs pretty much as a Sound Blaster 16, and decent enough wavetable support. It also works extraordinarily well under Windows 9X. If it had actual OPL3 and a …

Re: Add ram to Voodoo 3 2000 sg variant?

I am not sure if someone has tried it, but someone asked the same thing at Anandtech back in 2001 . It looks like the extra pads were for variants of the card that used less dense SDRAM instead of SGRAM, rather than trying to double the memory to 32 MB. Even if somehow the graphics hardware could …

Re: Your opinion on the ATi Rage IIC and Rage Pro

I had an ATI Rage Pro Turbo as my first 3D accelerator. It was on a PII-300 with 64 MB of RAM in 1998, and it was simultaneously a revelation and a source of pain. The 2D quality was spectacular, and a lot of 3D games looked... well, good enough. But it never could do alpha blending properly, no …
