I'm seeking help once again, this time to solve a problem with EF2000.
Motherboard: Super Micro X5DA8
Processor type and speed: Dual Pentium 4 Xeon 3.2 Ghz
Amount and type of RAM: 4x Kingston KVR266X72RC25L/2G (2GB DDR/266, registered ECC)
Video board w/ RAM amount and type: PNY NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GS AGP with 256 MB
Sound board: Realtek AC'97 Codec (on motherboard, ALC650 based)
Operating system: Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition SP2 x86
Game name: EF2000 Grpahics+ CD
Description of problem: display squished vertically
Reproducibility of problem: Always
Sound mode used: Sound Blaster 16 and General MIDI
Video mode: Glide
Version of emulator: DOSBox SVN Daum (Jan. 27. 2014)
Steps already attempted to solve the problem: Configuration reset. Altering cputype and core. Altering parameters related to display.
Gamepad model: Gamestop PC 1000GS USB gamepad detected as Generic USB Joystick with 4 axes, 12 buttons and 1 hat.
I 'm trying to get EF2000 with Graphics+ to run in DOSBox SVN Daum (Jan. 27. 2014).
I'm using the standard configuration, with those lines changed, as suggested in this thread EF2000 + 3dfx graphics .
So far, the game runs pretty well (for such an old computer anyway), but graphics are squeezed into the upper half of the screen, and fonts seem odd:
Accessing the menu with ~ works fine, resolution and aspect seem correct. Getting back to the game stretches display until it reaches ~ 640*1000:
After this point console continues to report a resolution change (always in 80 pixels increments), but display doesn't change:
Setting fullscreen=false leads to this:
DOSBox reports it's happily running at ~ 170000 fps... right.
I'm using drivers 256.10 from 03/03/2010 (I can't use the latest release because it freezes my computer when I use Firefox).
I've spent many days searching for clues/fixes, but all I can find are posts of people happilly running EF2000 graph+
Also, I've been able to run Shadow Warrior 3DFX successfuly, so at least I know I'm doing *something* right 😊
Thank you very much for your time!
