  • Used my own CGA to SCART cable. Gives all 16 colours. Se here for details

  • Using external drive og SD2IEC on a C128D is not easy due to the built inn floppy who is ID8. I found a program that swapped ID 8 and 9. I have to run this program every time, so it is not an optimal solution. Using a 128D is usually more trouble then using a C64.

  • S3 Savage IX8+ video controller with 8MB - AGP2X

  • More information here

  • Installed with Windows 98 UBCD

  • CrystalClear SoundFusion

    • Supports SB Pro (3.02) 220h, IRQ 5, DMA 1. Setting can not be changed.

    • Supports Adlib from DOS. OK, but a plays to fast. AdLib sounds better then SB.

    • Must have CWCDOS.EXE to support FM/OPL and DSP in DOS

  • It supports SB and Adlib in Windows 98SE, plus General Midi. The General Midi from Windows is very good.

  • Must use old audio drivers to get DOS support. The newer version adds DirectX 8 support, but removes DOS drivers and SB compatibility in Windows.

  • All in all this is an OK machine for DOS gaming.

    • Minus for the poor OPL (adlib/SB) support.

    • Plus for a good screen with hardware scales 320x200 games to fullscreen.

    • The best way to play DOS games on this machine is from Windows because you General Midi support, and therefor do not rely on the bad OPL implementation.

    • Demos usually do not use MIDI/OPL so they run best from DOS.

  • Very for Windows 98 gaming - because it has an S3 Savage with 8MB ram. Good for DirectX games.
