Re: Is drive sound emulation possible?

I actually sampled a PD sample of a table saw and sampled an old keyboard (with heavy cleanup). My mics are too noisy to sample my real drives. One idea for floppy sound I have would be playing sounds from different positions in a long floppy read sample according to what sector's read/written to. i...

<ponderousfeaturecreepbrainfart> For far additional immersion spackle we'd also need fan whirs, speed-modulated hard drive whirs and writes, monitor hums (based on emulated sync) and mechanical keyboard clacking (key press and release sounds with a pitch variance table for each key), and maybe some ...

It's more "Emulates two Voodoo cards and connects them" SLI is short for scanline interleave in that it renders with the other Voodoo card every other line.

Re: v14 compatibility & bug list (WIP)

Croc doesn't even need Windows updates. That's just a coincidence it happened to work afterward and Croc was already working years before v14 without them. It was also a test subject for developing Virge and Voodoo emulation early on

Re: Not reading bootfloppy?

If you've already formatted your drive with a newer Windows than 95A, chances are it's FAT32. Windows 95 only supported FAT16 at best originally. Note that you won't be able to emulate the Voodoo on that AMI WinBIOS 486 due to the whole PCI-lacking thing For 3d stuff Award 430vx is what you'll want ...

The currently emulated AMI WinBIOS 486 board does not support PCI. If you want a PCI 486 to emulate you'll have to fetch a SiS 496/497 bios somewhere

The least that could happen is an attempt to reproduce various rendering quirks on Voodoo interpreter code as fun learning patches not intended for inclusion: - nVidia's 16x16 dither matrix that slightly resembles ordered dither on a restore-down button.

No public documentation or spec sheets (Working from xfree86 source wouldn't be enough) and the only actual Nvidia emulation code around is the Xbox GF3 stuff in MAME and Xqemu and those are missing features present in the early Nvidia cards. It's barely less secretive than PowerVR. I think the only...

Re: Problems with some Origin games

I don't use a starter pack; just a stock 6.22 install + the official Creative Sound Blaster 16 floppies from 1993, which install a bunch of devices and TSRs to initialize the card and mixer. It's a little more involved than a simple SET BLASTER line.

Just tried your config with a DOS 6.22 + SB16 drivers + OAK CD HDD image and the intro+game sound works there too.
