Intel Quad Core Q6600 @2,4 GHz (I guess it's 2,4 x 4 = 9,6 GHz)
Geforce 8800 GT
Soundblaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio
Windows Vista 64Bit (regrettably)
Dosbox 0.73 / Dosbox CVS Build by Gulikoza (DOSBoxcvs-090704)
(I play Screamer 2 @SVGA and 256 colours)
Initially I tried Screamer 2 via Dosbox 0.73 (normal software version - nothing special). No problems so far. But the game is at the best barely smooth and on some (graphically intense) courses - like california - the stuttering already effects the playability.
It feels like I have a bad configured P120 or something...
Anyways. I wanted to enjoy Screamer 2 with glide support. After an odyssey of trial and error, I finally attempted Gulikoza's CVS Build and it worked!! (I had already installed the 3dfx-patch earlier). But unfortunately this version is very very slow!! 😒 Endless stuttering and virtually unplayable.
Btw: For both options I tried a bit with the cpu-cycles and core adjustments - without success. (one time Screamer 2 under glide became some kind of a slow-motion - kinda smoother, but slowmo)
Ok, my question: Is it possible, to get both versions (but especially the glide one) faster?? No matter how...
I also tried the latest Daum Café version from here http://ykhwong.x-y.net/cvs/frame.html but I get the message "grSstopen failed" when I type "b2_3dfx.exe"...
I didn't tried that dgvoodoo and vdm sound stuff, cause I have no idea how they work and also read that Vista isn't supported from both...?!?
