Yesterday I finally started finalizing my period correct Voodoo1 build.
Mostly went alright. Click here for specs.
But the old infamous JST driver started to give me some trouble. After I installed the driver for the V330 it started artifacting if I set anything above 640×480 16bit. At first I thought maybe I misremembered and never tested the card, it came from a questionable place so it might actually be faulty. Tried it in another PC, no faults there.
Decided I should reinstall Windows 95, I planned that anyways, it was the OS came with the drive installed for a different PC, it was just a lucky accident that it booted at all. Booted with a W98 floppy, tried formatting, it gave up around 65%. Repartitioned and tried again, same result. Took the drive out put it into my Win2k utility PC, tried formatting there. It went well until about 63% then slowed down. After 3 hours it went up to 75%, left for the night to see what happens. The morning it was still formatting at 80%. I assume it could work with an around 750-760MB partition.
Vintage market 2023 april.
It wasn't all that good for vintage electronics this time. Some MX440SE here, random modem cards and SCSI controllers there. I picked up a 2GB Quantum hard drive for ~75 cents. It was faulty as expected, but I still wanted to try my luck.
It was much better for games.
I got a Jade Empire with manual in good condition, Prince of Persia (2008) with manual in good condition, Need for Speed: Road Challenge (EU version of High Stakes) decent condition, no manual. All this for 1.5€.
Afternoon I'll continue with the Voodoo build, for the time being with a CF card until I find hard drive.
