Until now every dos game i run work exactly like the trident 1mb did, except 2 games.
All these games work perfect on Trident and 5200:
Keen4,Jazz,Cosmic,Doom,Simpsons,hocus pocus, Ultima 8, King Quest 6...
Fx 5200 run Duke nukem 3d perfect in 800x600 or 1024x768. ( i didnt try it on trident yet)
Keen 4 vsync and scrolling work perfect in both videocards. Matrox mystique run this keen4 like garbage with a lot of scrolling problem.
2 differences about FX 5200 and Trident.
Aladdin run with a few scrolling and vsync problem with Trident. But the same problem are a little worst on FX 5200. Game run slower on FX 5200 but it seems the good speed, i think.. Trident maybe too fast in Aladdin.
if i remember correctly Jazz Jackrabbit has a perfect vsync and scrolling with trident. FX 5200 has sometime , not often, a little stuttering, maybe cause by sync or scrolling. Difference is slight between both cards. Matrox mystique run jazz with a lot of stuttering , like a vsync and scrolling problem.
- FX 5200 has A FASTER respontime time for input lag than Trident. im not dreaming. im better with Aladdin and jazz and keen. im very surprised, the difference is noticeable.
- with FX 5200 image quality is superior. Much more Brighter, better colors, better contrast, better clarity than trident. But Trident stiil look ok good. But the Matrox Mystique has a strange problem in clarity all letters and all picture has a lot of strange noise everywhere, hard to explain , but VERY annoying , maybe not at all resolution tough. but most dos resolution have this noise and blur problem like smearing around letter and things even keen character. and has the worst brightness, contrast and clarity of both cards. I was very disappointed with the matrox mystique, trident a lot better. FX 5200 beat trident overall in image quality and similar dos performance. Matrox mystique has a very bad dos performance, its really bad in keen , even in jazz.
i will edit if i find other difference.
Thanks guys a lot . you helped me a lot. I bought the FX 5200 because of your answers, i dont regret it, im VERY Happy . thanks SO MUCH GUYS ! Special Thanks to Maxtherabbit !! you are the guy that influenced me more to buy it. Cheers! ( about the guy with the problem with build engine, try to attrib -R all files in your build engine games directory, i got duke nukem working with this, otherwise it was a fatal error or something like that)
