  1. I am shocked reading this. I have been sick the last couple of years and spent little time building computers. Last week I got back into a project that I had put on hold. It is my second W98 4 GB computer and I had bought a second license for it. RIP Rloew, you are a legend and will be missed.
  2. OK guys, a lot of good work here - 24 pages! I am on WinXP SP3 4gb RAM. FF 52.9 ESR. Most You Tube videos do not play. Some do. I downloaded Primetime and put it in the correct FF folder (took a while to find for FF 52.9). It does not work or show up in Plug-ins.. I have looked and Googled for 2 hours and I can not find where the heck "Preferences" are in FF 52.9. I've looked through all the pages under "Options" and can not find "Preferences". Where do I I enter these Preferences in FF 52.9? : ================================== To be able to install and operate the Primetime CDM, add and/or set the following FF preferences in about:config (be careful, all of these are cAsE sEnSiTiVe!): media.gmp-eme-adobe.enabled (boolean; true) media.gmp-eme-adobe.forceSupported (boolean; true; FF 49.0+) media.gmp-eme-adobe.forcevisible (boolean; true; FF 45-48, no longer used in 49.0+) media.gmp-eme-adobe.visible (boolean; true; FF 49.0+) media.gmp-eme-adobe.version (string, not integer; 17; required for manual install now that automatic install is no longer an option) media.gmp-eme-adobe.abi (string; x86-msvc-x86 (EDIT: x86-msvc-x64 for 64-bit XP users); not required, you can set it if you want to more closely mimic automatic install) media.gmp-eme-adobe.lastUpdate (integer; 1500000000; not required, you can set it if you want to more closely mimic automatic install) media.gmp.decoder.enabled (boolean; true) media.eme.enabled (boolean; true; defaults to false if you downloaded a DRM-free version of FF; thanks @heinoganda for pointing this out) ================================== Thanks! Tony
  3. I can't recall the DOS file size limit but PQMAGIC.OVL is 818KB on my PQ Magic floppy disk. FAT partitions are limited to 2GB so it's somewhere between those two. Way biger than your 50K file.
  4. I am building a DOS & Win98SE game machine. The computer has 2 IDE drives. Drive0 has a 2GB FAT partition for DOS and a 8GB FAT32 partition for Win98SE. The second hard drive drive (DRIVE1) has a 2GB FAT partition for DOS data and a 6GB FAT32 for Win98 data/programs. I installed WinXP SP3 into the DRIVE1's FAT32. XP boots fine as does Win98SE from XP's BOOT.INI. DOS also boots fine if I set it's partition to ACTIVE and by-pass XP's BOOT.INI. When I boot to WinXP the C: drive is the Win98 boot partition with the Win98 WINDOWS directory but the BOOT drive is E: with the Windows XP. CD-ROM drive is F: .This is confusing but since I will use XP only for diagnostics/browsing I won't bother switching the XP drive letters around. QUESTION 1: How do I add PC-DOS to XP's BOOT.INI screen and get DOS to boot? QUESTION 2: What files does XP put on DRIVE0 and where? Thanks!
  5. CT4780 is a Dell OEM card - a Live Value! card. The Dell Part # is 180UR. The Dell drivers *should* work.
  6. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I downloaded & archived it as I have 6 computers still on WinXP. Tony
  7. Well, after 2 months of trying, I was finally able to register here at MSFN. I guess the system didn't like my email address even though it is valid. I've been a lurker here for a while. I am a retired CIO & I also retired from the Army Reserves. I hail from Newnan GA, just south of Atlanta. My systems of choice are WinXP SP3, Win98S, and PC DOS 2000 for Inel CPUs. I do dabble with Linux Mint once in a while. I built my fist PC in 1986 - a 386SX with SIPP RAM - all 4 MB of it (yes, I tossed it long ago. I should have kept the SIPP RAM ) Before that I used a Mac 128K. I cut the RAM chips off the Mac 128K mobo, installed sockets & 512K ram and the decode logic making my own 512K FAT Mac. It is still running with 6MB RAM. I wrote software in the 80's & 90's primarily on the Mac and DOS using compiled BASIC & Assembly language. I lost interest in the Mac when Apple dropped the 680x0 and went to the PowerPC chip. I still "play" with a Mac - a Quadra 605 with 128MB & a full 68040 (40MHz) running 33MHz. Someday I'll goose it up to 40MHZ and see what happens . I am also a musician and I have a small recording studio in my home. My primary DAW is a 4GB Windows XP Pro SP3 running Sonar 8.5 and Reaper. I sill use WinXP as the drivers for my 16 channel PCI audio interface do not work correctly under Windows 7 or above. I would have to spend $2,500+ get new hardware to use Win7 or higher. No thanks. It's running very well as is so I just leave it alone. I still use Win98SE to drive a rack of "vintage" syths and MIDI equipment. I just completed a new MOBO upgrade (Socket 478 3.0 GHz) on the Win98SE box and bumped up the RAM from 1gb to 4GB. I use R. Loew's RAM Limitation Patch 7.2 and love it. Before I bought the patch I was limited to 256MB as 512MB on my P3 800MHZ would crash. With the RAM patch I ran with 1GB RAM and it was rock so;id. I don't know what I will do now with all that 4GB RAM ! Kinda like when I upgraded my Mac Plus from 1mb to a whopping 4mb ! My current project is building a DOS & Win98SE box for games. Mobo is a Socket 478 3.0GHz P loaded with 2 GB RAM. I'm still fighting with drivers for it and I hope to have it stable soon. 7th Guest, the Myst games, Dark Fall, Crystal Key ect are the types games I like. I'm looking forward to learning here and maybe I can pass on a nugget or two.
