Re: How to read memtest utility?

I did read all that first but I'm having trouble understanding the numbers. For example, why are there letters in the numbers? The numbers (aside from memory speed) are in base 16 hexadecimal or "hex" which is used for sciency type stuff. Hex uses letters A-F (to represent 10-15) in addit...

Re: ao486 Performance Technical Discussion

That was my experience as well, at least in central new york, 486sx25 chips everywhere, which was odd, as they weren't all that much faster than a 386dx-40, given the price delta... The 486sx was commonly paired with the (P24T) "Pentium Overdrive" socket which contained an extra row of pi...

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

The Value Edition does not come with 3.x kickroms, so Plus is the smallest package having all the ROMs you want. In addition you get legal Workbench images and other goodies, like the original boingball demo disk as adf if you just want the legit ROMS for $1.99 https://play.google.com/store/apps/de...

I seem to have a very bad lag on the sound with ScummVM. Is there any way to changes settings to get rid of this lag?

What you are seeing here is a "Logon Matrix". Back in the late 80's and early 90's PC based Pirate/Warez boards would run software like Vision/2, VisionX, Emulex/2 and Oblivian/2. There is a selections for Logon Matrix type. If you set it to 0 (zero) for None then you will get a regular l...

Yes, you need to either have a WiFi or Ethernet connection to run the installer.

After the installer has finished you no longer need the ethernet connection unleess you want to do network play.

Since 38400 is the default for ao486 core and midilink, does midilink for ao486 send a 38400 Connect result code of "28". Or is it just sending Connect of '1' result code? The default (unless you specify differently in the INI via TCP_BAUD=) for TCP mode is 115200 The result code sends &q...

There is no more ROM.KEY in the current versions of Amiga Forever. The kickroms just work. That is good. That encryption was stupid anyway.

so with the TCP_DTR=2 it will drop the carrier on the VisionX BBS. It just takes a few seconds. no big deal. I can probably tune this up. Right now it for 1 sec of read inactivity (meaning write from core) before checking the DTR line and taking appropriate action. So the the response codes in the ...

There are more uses for this than just BBS..
