  1. XP + Z170 = Possible?

    I was thinking about upgrading my system to skylake but am concerned that my current XP/10 dual boot will no longer be possible. Has anyone here successfully installed XP on the Z170 platform?
  2. Abit IP35V

    Thanks all The system I'm wanting to build is a Core2 + PCI Express. Would this board be the best option or is there something better out there?
  3. Abit IP35V

    I'm thinking about building another Win98 system and was wondering if Abit's IP35V board is compatible with? (It's a P35+ICH7 based board)

    @ rloew So that's why I couldn't find it I'll have to adjust my install a little bit for the newer vmm file. I just assumed it was a custom mod too. @PROBLEMCHYLD My KVM is working great now, no hotplug issues. Nice work!
  5. 98 SE SP 3.32

    Awesome, I'll test 'er out in the morning
  6. 98 SE SP 3.32

    That clears things up, thanks. Edit: Do you know where I can find an unmodified vcache.vxd file? (didn't have much luck searching)
  7. 98 SE SP 3.32

    Oh ok 1 more question. Will rloew's app patch the updated vmm.dll file if its just sitting in the vmm32 folder? (as it normally gets it from vmm32.vxd)
  8. 98 SE SP 3.32

    Is that in the system.ini file? Because I looked for MaxPhysPage/MaxFileCache entires in it after installing the pack and couldn't find any. Right now I just use a floppy to restore those 3 files (vmm, vcache, and esdi_506) after installing the pack. Is that sufficient or am I not fully restoring it?
  9. 98 SE SP 3.32

    I thought the font thing might just be clean up or something, good to know for sure. They overwrite them though. I have rloew's high capacity & sata patches applied to esdi_506.pdr. AFAIK, the one in the pack doesn't support sata drives. If I dont restore it before windows starts up, the system becomes unbootable. As for the memory files, I have a gigabit lan and a 256mb video card, so I have to run some special switches (with rloews patchmem) in order to get everything stable. I don't know if the files in the pack have the same tweaks applied (i've always just restored them to be safe). Yeah thats what I meant (scandisk, defrag, and the disk maintenance dll). Very useful for bigger hard drives.
  10. 98 SE SP 3.32

    Thanks, glad to help Some other bugs/ideas: When installing TrueType Fonts, there's some file not found error messages (might be normal, see attached image) Make esdi_506.pdr, vmm.vxd, and vcache.vxd optional for rloew patch users Include the updated disk tools (http://www.mdgx.com/files/BHDD31.ZIP) I also had some weird issues with xbox controllers (5sec pause every time I shot a gun in SoF if it was plugged in). It may have been sound card related (yay creative). I'll recheck it when your new version comes out.
  11. 98 SE SP 3.32

    Awesome, thanks. I knew I wasn't crazy There's another issue not specifically related to your stack (it does it with everyone I've tried) but if you leave a flash drive installed and reboot, Windows will assign a 2nd drive letter to it as drive D (fixed disk icon). If you then eject the flash drive, drive D remains and you'll get a blue screen if anything tries to access it.
  12. 98 SE SP 3.32

    I have 2 computers, a Win8 pc and a 98SE pc. Both are hooked to a KVM. When I switch from the 98SE to the Win8 pc and then back - I loose my mouse and have to reboot in order to get it back. If I plug a mouse directly into the 98SE pc and I unplug it / plug it back in, it does the same thing. Basically, there's a hot plug issue.
  13. Win 98SE vs Win ME maybe Win2000

    2k is the better os but if you're wanting to play older games, it's going to give you alot of grief (even more than xp).
  14. 98 SE SP 3.32

    No luck You can replicate the problem by unplugging your mouse and then plugging it back in (if you don't have a kvm)
  15. 98 SE SP 3.32

    OK, I'll give that method a shot. I typically install them with the other drivers during the first reboot. Maybe somethings going wrong there.
