Re: AO486 compatibility list

Any other advantage to 4DOS? Does it increase compatibility with any games?

Re: eXoFlynn Top 300 DOS Pack Updates and Support

Looks like Warcraft II doesn't like my D: CD drive hack. Just change the drive letter in the configs to F:\ and it will work.

Re: Real floppy drive

I think it's cool and getting any hardware interface to fpga is fun! I know I have a few floppies I would get out just to see them load, even if my primary usage would be images.

Re: How to bind keyboard keys to game pad?

BBond built a new version of the TDL interface that allows for Joystick control but there are many other things that will need changed and you are going to be limited to what games will work if they don't support Joysticks natively. There is an option for mapping keys to joystick that you can do whi...

Re: eXoFlynn Top 300 DOS Pack Updates and Support

I did a 14 hour stream on all those kind of changes if you are really really bored, you can see the changes I had to make. Still the plan is to not require any of that and feed those changes back to the Converter scripts. Haven´t everyone here seen it already :?: :roll: You would think that huh!

Re: AO486 compatibility list

Seems you made it use regular Sound Blaster, but with IRQ 7? Every other game I play with AO486 use IRQ 5. Maybe you changed something about your sound card settings, or is it something to do with this game specifically? I found the point in the video where you made the working config: https://yout...

Re: eXoFlynn Top 300 DOS Pack Updates and Support

It's random issues still. Top ones for me when going through the 300 games I test: 1. game config files that are specific names in the games folders that still tie to a C:\GAMEFOLDER so you have to edit the cfg, ini, etc in the directory and change it to E:\GAMES\...\...\. 2. SB16/ASP is usually the...

Re: AO486 compatibility list

Redbook is where games had audio tracks on the CD's that are referenced in the cue file. Those won't play audio if they are referenced but the games should still play, you just might have silent audio tracks. Also, fyi, cue / img files should work fine on the mister. I've tested many combo's of iso,...

Re: AO486 compatibility list

I'm confused on what you are doing. Are you converting redbook cd's to some other format? What's wrong with 7th guest? I've been playing that pretty consistently.

I couldn't get 11th hour going so will be interested in if you do.

you dont need to change the cd format any longer with the latest updates to main. This commit fixed that. All CD's should now work out of the box. https://github.com/MiSTer-devel/Main_Mi ... 1922f36b9b

Re: eXoFlynn Top 300 DOS Pack Updates and Support

ExoConverter will do the stubs for you now too, fyi. So basically you only have to create the VHD like above, verify the TDL.ini is set to e:\games and copy it. Then fix a lot of games that don't work :D

@buttersoft, yes exactly. 1. The one thing I do that is a bit difficult to understand is there are two partitions not one on the second large VHD. The reason I do this is so that DOS will assign a drive letter to it at D:. So C: is always the OS disk and can be swapped out by people if they want dif...

Re: AO486 compatibility list

If you create a new stub exe with something predictable (game32.exe) we can add a launch option to the run.bat file that allows for a dos32a option instead of dos4gw. So both options would be there.
