Single Status Update
once agian am i rebuilding the classic game PC. this time i have found some of my better parts.
anyways specs time
Intel Pentium pro 200Mhz 256k cache
96MB system RAM
4MB sis video with 3dfx voodoo 2 12MB 3d accelrator. plan on buying another voodoo 2 and runing SLI.
4GB maxtor hard drive, 5400RPM
soundblaster AWE64, a great card for older games.
i have some concerns about the pentium pro CPU. i have heard it runs kinda bad in 16bit mode. also i think it lacks the MMX ability.
however my p133 system ran very well and had similar specs. minus the voodoo2. i was saddened to have never gotten one. until now.
now for the games list
tombradier 1 & 2
keen 4, 5 & 6
have any of you guys ever used a pentium pro for such a task? i just used it because the base system was already built and i did not feel like digging thru trying to find a good working pentium board.
i just wish i could find drivers for the voodoo card.
i went to voodoo files and under original it looks like a bunch of giberish, non-english, dead links or redirects to advetising pages. the 3rd party drivers is a similar deal
i tried the voodooextream but its in fucking german, i dont speak german.
WTF why cant i find a 3dfx site that is in english? http://www.3dfxzone.it/dir/3dfx/voodoo2/win9x.htm
You really have to dig into the earliest pages on Voodoofiles. Try Here for a start for your drivers. Found on page 7 of the "Original" drivers list.
