My Questions no. 1

Post by MiraiMiracle » Sun 05 Aug, 2018 8:10 am

My questions:
1. Exiting full screen mode will change border from Aero theme to Basic theme.
2. What is Diamond Stealth 2000/S3 ViRGE?
3. Pentium OverDrive 125 to 200: Is this faster or slower than the original Pentium?
4. Windows Whistler/XP: Will slowdown PCem emulator?
5. PCem got crashed when using a Packerd-Bell Pentium-based motherboards.
And finally: I got a problem when I'm experiencing:
Host PC: Windows 7
Virtual PC: AMI 486/486 WinBIOS PCI Clone, i486DX4/75, 128MB RAM, Number Nine 9FX 2MB, Video Speed is 16-bit, Sound Card is Sound Blaster 16
I created my new HDD drive leaving all parameters untouched. AMIBIOS was autodefected my HDD drive.
When Windows 98 Setup appears, it goes reset, but I got problem: getting system halted message: "NO ROM BASIC, SYSTEM HALTED"

Thank you.

You have wrote "My questions:" and then wrote a list of your requests. Those are questions but they are requests too.

2. S3 ViRGE is a video chipset, mainly for displaying 2D video, also did some 3D, but was very poor at that. Diamond Stealth 2000 was a video card made by Diamond Multimedia with that certain chip.

3. I don't know for sure, but my guess is slow than the original, since is an adaptation for slower chipsets

1. Windows feature. Use software or Direct3D rendering to get around this.
2. One of the earliest available S3 ViRGE cards. S3 ViRGE is a PCI video card. It's like Trio64 but brings accelerated 2d, and 3d (accelerated is theoretical at best)
3. No. Overdrives usually are newer Pentium processors refitted for older sockets.
4. XP is usable and games will still run in XP as fine as they do on 2000. It just takes a little bit of patience to get through startup (like XP on real older machines) Windows prototypes are unsupported.
5. Delete flash.bin from your roms/pb570 folder
