  1. I was able to get UXP / Serpent to build ok for SSE only processors. Pic related! Thanks for your help :)

  2. In Display Properties, tell us what the current monitor is set to and then set it to Super Vga 1600x1200. After a restart, you should now be able to set the resolution up to the maximum the ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 can drive. The screen hardware might resize it to fit the LCD panel, or the driver or hardware might virtualize the mode and allow you to pan the panel viewport around the virtual screen/desktop (using the mouse or arrow keys?).

  3. I'm using Umatrix to block most unnecessary scripts, but you're right, it does choke quite badly on JS heavy sites. Still leaps and bounds faster than the SSE only version of Quantum that ships with antiX! That one really takes the cake

  4. Good work, but keep in mind UXP's JavaScript compiler will still output SSE2 code, so JavaScript will often foil your SSE-only version of Serpent.

  5. You can't invent pixels out of nowhere. What you are actually seeing is the maximum resolution of your screen, there's no way to increase it as every pixel physically correspond to an object on the screen that is charged electronically and displays a value between 16 and 235 (between 0 and 0.7 Volt) or 0 and 255 if it's full range of RGB which gives you what you see as an image. For instance, if you had a camera that was able to zoom enough you would see that when you are seeing white, each and every pixel is turned on with the maximum voltage available. You can basically see why you can't increase the resolution: there won't be enough pixels on your screen to fit it, so you would end up with a partially represented screen TL;DR parts of the elements of your desktop will fall out of your screen. - trick and attempt 1 If you are really willing to try, you can use the Windows scaling function to scale down desktop icons and text or in Firefox/Chromium to zoom out web pages. This won't give you more resolution, however it will make text and icons smaller and give you the feeling of having a higher resolution. - trick and attempt 2 Just like it's possible to encode images and video with a Frameserver, it must be possible to make a downscale of your desktop live. What I mean by that is that you will set the resolution very high and then you'll downscale the resulting signal down either via software or via hardware to fit the resolution of your screen. There are many resizing kernel like PointResize, Bilinear, Bicubic, Lanczos, Spline based resizers etc. I would personally suggest to use Spline64Resize or Lanczos. They are both very sharp, but spline is prone to create ringing on texts. This way you're definitely gonna make use of the space created by the new pixels, but you won't see them! What you'll see is rather an interpolation of them made by the resizing kernel you selected and it may look aliased or with ringing or even so mis-represented that it's impossible to read! If you wanna learn more about resizing kernel, check this out (beware, it requires at least a basic knowledge of linear algebra): http://avisynth.nl/index.php/Resampling Source: I'm a broadcast engineer you can find me on Doom9 (the international encoding forum) talking about... well... encoding all the time.

  6. OT: finally swapped in new rig into my main workstation chassis yesterday after work, took ~5 hours to final adjust for my daily use. (Although my main workstation changed to win7, I still have a low-powered download station and a DELL D630 notebook running XP) BTW old games like Red Alert 2 and SimCity 3000 are not test yet, hope they will still run. EDIT: copied my repos to SSD, so I need as least 128GiB SSD scratch disk for them later.

  7. This is extremely sad news indeed, I'm surprised more haven't replied to this thread already. He was certainly a genius when it came to figuring these things out. He'll always be a well respected developer and patron here. RIP rloew, we will all miss you. Thank you for all you've done for the diehard Win9x community.

  8. I don't know if MSVC SSE build will work or not. GCC(MinGW) build may work. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Developer_guide/Build_Instructions/Cross_Compile_Mozilla_for_Mingw32$revision/1019972

  9. That’s a question for RT to answer. I’m using a modern Linux distro, so I have access to newer libraries, etc, that may not be available for XP. But then again, he’s already demonstrated that these browsers can be built for XP, so common sense tells me dependencies shouldn’t be an issue..

  10. OFFT: Depends on the distribution of the game, the retail versions of the games have the SafeDisc DRM (RA2 and SC3K Unlimited Edition >>for reference original version has SecuROM DRM<<), which isn't supported by 7 with KB3086255 update installed, so you have to either free the DRM by temporarily enabling the secdrv service (i recommend not doing it since you would reopen the vulnerability) or by certain yarr-harr methods. I recommend consulting PCGamingWiki for those games for any patches/fixes for modern versions of windows: https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Command_%26_Conquer:_Red_Alert_2 https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/SimCity_3000

  11. This Dell forum thread seems to indicate that the maximum resolution is 1024 x 768, and that it's a limitation of the LCD display itself. However, it looks like that model of laptop had different models of display available. If you're willing to do some hardware hunting and modding, a cursory look into the model revealed that there's a display available for that laptop model which has 1440 x 1050 native resolution. It looks like this store sells the screen you'd need.

  12. I think default config will just work? I don't build linux builds but I can give you my win32 .mozconfig for reference: mk_add_options MOZ_CO_PROJECT=browser mk_add_options MOZ_MAKE_FLAGS="-j6" ac_add_options --enable-release ac_add_options --enable-application=browser ac_add_options --enable-optimize="-O2" ac_add_options --enable-jemalloc ac_add_options --enable-shared-js ac_add_options --enable-devtools ac_add_options --disable-debug ac_add_options --enable-strip ac_add_options --disable-skia ac_add_options --disable-maintenance-service ac_add_options --disable-crashreporter ac_add_options --disable-updater ac_add_options --disable-tests ac_add_options --disable-mochitests ac_add_options --disable-replace-malloc

  13. What is the native resolution of the display fitted in the laptop? Usually, displays only look at their best at their native resolution, so trying to go higher may actually produce poorer looking results.

  14. Well... we may have a problem: I cannot find any report after Sep 10! So it seems the report system is malfunctioning. I'll ask xper to give it a look. Meanwhile you can keep posting or PMing if needed. I'll sure keep y'all posted on how it develops.

  15. My friends, you should report those posts (there is a "report" at the extreme right on the upper blue bar on each post), not post about them. By reporting you ensure any online mod'll deal with that faster than just when I happen to return here (which is often, but maybe not often enough) and help us zero exactly on which post the spammer is ... In any case, it's done.

  16. Here spammers get banned and reported to anti-spam services. And get all posts removed, too. Done!

  17. The 2nd post was not only spam; it was also deceptive: the link claiming to go to 123[dot]hp[dot]com actually goes to [...]! @dencorso, could you please remove the offending post (or at least "neuter" the deceptive link)? Thanks!

  18. ... Yet another spamming post (disguised as a help plea) right before this one, from - most probably - the same spammer, under a newly created account and associated user name... If you read this, move your spamming activities elsewhere ; most members here are smart enough not to click your spamming links ; I trust the site admins will soon take care of you...

  19. MSFN rule 2.e might apply here: ... and possibly rule 4.a: @dencorso, what are your thoughts on this?
