Re: [Request] Atari PC 4

To see if it is complicated or not we need to know what chipset and/or Super I/O it uses. Maybe it is already emulated in another machine...

Re: Some noob questions from a new user...

1) The user is to find the drivers for each video card, but for the second sentence it seems you are confused with the ROMs for the video cards...
2) Pentium II @ 450 mhz in theory, but no computer can handle 100% emulation at present
3) Not sure, never tried
4) I believe Windows XP

IBMULATOR exclusively emulates the PS/1. It would be interesting to see if that emulator has that specific feature

Re: Voodoo 2 Total Memory Size?

What I DO see troubling to me is that 8mb and 12 mb both have fixed 4MB frame buffer memory (at least the Monster, Creative and all known brands). So why bother with playing with the frame buffer memory from 4 or 2mb?

Re: Voodoo 2 Total Memory Size?

So, first my confusion is... Don't ALL Voodoo 2 cards have 2 TMUs, with 8MB cards having 4MB Framebuffer, 4MB Texture Mem and 2 TMU chips and 12MB cards having 4MB framebuffer, 8MB Texture Mem and the same 2 TMU chips..? :? I can't see where your confusion is. Indeed all Voodoos2 have 2 TMUs regard...

Well, what I meant is that I believe the DB50XG is the best (or one of the best) wavetables around. It is far from having a Sound Canvas, but sound quite good IMHO

Re: [Patch] More Korean machines

Just for anecdotal sake I used to have a couple of years ago a Samsung SD610. A 286@16 with Phoenix BIOS.
Unfortunately I sold it and didn't dump the BIOS.

When configuring PCem before launching the emulated machine
Anyway, I have been using the Virge since always and I have no problem. You could change the driver in Windows 9x too
