  1. I have a Raspberry Pi 3 and have been using Browservice on it to connect to my Win98 Dell computer via wifi. It is one of the best, if not the best, ways to browse the modern web on a retro OS. Web pages render almost perfectly. You can use almost every web browser with it, even early versions of Netscape and IE. There are drawbacks though. In addition to requiring a Linux machine or VM, audio cannot be streamed from the guest computer, only from the linux machine; depending on the connection, pages can be laggy; and right clicking is currently not supported.
  2. May I ask how you were able to voice chat over Team Speak 2? Was the person using Windows 10 also using Team Speak?
  3. I think I have found the best way of browsing the modern web on old web browsers. Enter, Browservice. It is a web proxy server that uses a chromium interface to render web pages as images using the client's browser's javascript. The proxy server is run from a Raspberry Pi. For more information, check out the following links: https://github.com/ttalvitie/browservice https://lunduke.com/posts/2020-06-30/ I have attached a couple of screenshots from my computer (Dell Dimension t500 Windows 98 SE 512 MB RAM) showing the proxy server in action. I was running the proxy from a Ras
  4. I wish there was a way we can talk with people on whatsapp, facebook messenger, discord, Zoom or any modern instant messaging services on retro machines using existing messaging clients (NetMeeting. MSN Messenger, etc) or a third party client (similar to Pidgin). But I think that's impossible and I'm just dreaming. I apologize if this isn't vanilla.
  5. How does that work? Cause normally, I tried connecting to servers listed on websites like game tracker and it doesn't work. I was told that those servers were only for the steam version. Is there something in the game folders that can be modified so that it picks up servers from steam? Similar to how the unofficial WON2 patch modified a certain file that can direct to WON2 severs?
  6. Now I obviously know that Steam itself does not work on Windows 98, not since 2007. However, there are games that originally came out for windows 9x (Half-Life, Team Fortress Classic, Counter Strike, etc.) that can be bought on Steam. Is there anyway to play those games that are bought on steam on 98 without the steam interface? I also have the original retail versions of those games, and so far, the only way to play those games online is through the unofficial WON2 service. As much as I enjoyed playing on those servers, they are limited and not many people play on them. To play on the current
  7. I am sorry to bump this but: It appears that these update patches seem to be the culprit for a problem I've been having recently. When I installed either the autopatcher or the unofficial service packs, at first, everything works normal. However, after a few days, the computer freezes at bootup, either freezes at the splash screen or gives me a black screen with the blinking cursor. Here are my computer specs: Dell Dimension XPS T500 640 MB of RAM Voodoo 3 graphics card Intel Pentium III 1 GHz
  8. So today, I got the PNY NVIDIA Geforce 6200. After installing the drivers and restarting the computer, the computer always restarts on bootup. The only way to solve this was to boot to safe mode and remove the drivers. Also, if I install the latest drivers, I get the windows protection error message.
  9. My GX110 is of the mini tower type. It has a wattage of 200 W and a voltage of 90 to 135 volts at 60Hz. Can the card handle that?
  10. Thanks. However, I have Commander Keen games and I heard that ATI cards messes up the scrolling of those games, as well as other EGA games. I would like a PCI card that balances both 2D games and 3D games. So far, the Voodoo3 meets that category. I would get the voodoo2, however, they only support full 3D.
  11. Its been a while since I last posted something in this forum. I have a Dell Optiplex GX110 WITH 510 MB, over 800mhz, runs Windows 95 OSR 2.5, and has an integrated Intel 810 chipset for display. After 5 years of use since salvaging this equipment, the default components such as sound and display, have taken their toll and it was time for some minor component upgrade. The first step I took was replacing the Creative Sound Blaster AudioPCI 64V that came with the machine, with the Sound Blaster AWE64 Gold ISA card. This, of course, required me to buy a riser card that includes both ISA and P
