Re: Shaders from shadertoy.com on old OpenGL 2.x gfx cards.

Do you mean double-precision? I believe it is supported, but runs much slower than single. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_N ... 600_Series

Re: FreeDOS 21st century?

Does the night kernel carry on with the old DOS/DPMI API or does it have a new API? It sounds interesting but I can`t find the slightest info about it.

Re: Difficulties in DOS on real hardware

Old versions of the FreeBasic compiler probably will not work, as I know the DOS graphics library was hopelessly broken until version 1.0 or something. What aspects of the graphics library do you need? I have a few graphical programs that I've run in DOS on a 486. I compiled using FB 0.23. The main...

Re: weird crashes on Phenom II X4

I was using MouseWare 6.30 that I've had since ancient times. I tried CTMOUSE and that resulted in crashes as well. I guess the real problem is the PS/2 mouse emulation in the BIOS (the system has a USB mouse). I tried disconnecting the USB mouse and connecting a serial mouse instead and then FB pro...

Re: Houston, we have a bug!

It's GetVersion all over again. And how do you know that it won't work with a version less than 5.1.2600? Whether your OS checking code works right or not, my vote is that you (and everybody else) just leave it out. Then I won't have to waste time bypassing the check with a hex editor to run softwar...

Re: weird crashes on Phenom II X4

There is a newer CWSDPMI, one from 2000 and one from 2010. I tried those, with no change. I also tried disabling CPU cache in the BIOS (again, no change). Then I put the other CPU back in and things work again. However, there are still some GPFs when moving the mouse. Without the mouse driver being ...

weird crashes on Phenom II X4

In one of my PCs I swapped out an Athlon II X2 CPU for a Phenom II X4. All other hardware remains unchanged. Then I noticed that FB DOS programs are no longer working. A very simple "hello world" program will run but when using graphics SCREEN it fails at some point... ' this program execu...

Not sure if this is an issue with FB or your machine. FYI, Screen 2 works fine for me with the older FB 0.23

Re: Audio library for FreeBasic - Features

Re: Does anyone know what algo XP -> full screen DOS?

Windows XP doesn't use any algorithm if I remember correctly. When viewing a full-screen DOS window, it actually uses the VGA's actual mode. Yes, exactly. Running a DOS program full-screen under Windows gets you the same thing as running it in DOS. However there is another important thing to note. ...
