Hey guys new here.
Been working with PC hardware for 25+ years, decided to go back to my roots for a play.
Now I have 2 systems here, not that old, one is a P4 which is kinda flaky, the other is a Pentium III 550E which from what I can tell works perfectly.
But I seem to be having a problem running only Duke 3D, Blood and Shadow Warrior in dos.
Everything else runs fine, Quake (DOS), GLQuake, Quake III, Unreal, Unreal Tournament, heck even Commander Keen
DFI CA61 Motherboard
512MB Ram (2x 256MB)
Geforce 3 Ti 200
40GB Hard drive partitioned
This is what happens everytime I run anything based on the Duke3D engine, this is even with no sound card selected, 320x200 and straight dos mode:
This does not happen on the P4 at all, but it has a bad cache problem so it randomly boots, hangs or bluescreens, waiting on replacement parts.
Has anyone see this problem before, I've tried with just a single stick of ram, could it be a hardware problem with the P3 too
