Comment Dosbox with accelerated 3DFX emulation coming soon (Score 1) 585

Check this topic: http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewtopic.php?t=25606&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0&sid=c883e111edfabdab8f3553f8f8a93d7f They already have an executable compiled for anyone to test out. Plus you can use it to run the original voodoo drivers for windows 95 - 98 for hardware accelerated Direct 3D games. Here's a gallery of 3DMark '99, using the DirectX 6 benchmark in dosbox: http://imgur.com/a/sBwz3#XbibR You can download the compiled test executable (dosbox_mingw.zip) on this page in the forums: http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewtopic.php?t=25606&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=340&sid=c77daab3a3561f5a676e32a91b2c97f5

Comment Re:Ok wtf is wrong with the layout (Score 1) 2254

Ok I enabled scripts for fsdn.com like it said on the options page, but now firefox is taking up 30% cpu time and it shows that there is 50% usage on one of my cpu cores. My machine is a AMD64 x2 4200+ running at 2.2ghz 2gig's ram Winxp sp3, FireFox version (yes it's an old version I know), but that constant cpu load shouldn't be happening.

Too bad that MW2: Mercenaries doesn't work properly in dosbox. You need to check if you have one of the working version's here: http://www.mech2.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=281 Also read here for installation types: http://www.mech2.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=806&sid=5641758f6839931c9ca2026abebd2a84

Well if you look around on the vogons dosbox forums: http://vogons.zetafleet.com/index.php?c=7 , you will find out that you can run Windows 95 in dosbox with some tweaks. In fact, they are using the real voodoo drivers installed in windows 95 for testing the voodoo emulation in dosbox.
