  • Got a Question? Ask it here! Vol. 2

    Grim Reaper 9 years ago
    Since the original 'Got a Question?' thread has seemingly been deleted, I decided to make this thread for all the little questions people have that aren't really big enough to conjure a dedicated thread for themselves.

    I'll start with a question... Who deleted the original GaQ thread?

    Feel free to ask questions of your own whilst I await for the answer to mine.

    I'll make an educated guess.

    My guess as well. I'm just looking for confirmation on whether it was really him.

    I can confirm that it wasn't me.

    I had at least three questions in that thread, and I still have one that I fecking want answered already!

    Remember the one I asked about my joystick-with-a-hat-thingy? (You probably don't.) I need an app that'll let me configure it myself. Forget drivers. They don't exist. I want something that changes what the OS detects.

    *bother*

    I can't play Rayman on my MS-DOS jumpdrive because my PC is too fast so the keyboard acts up (I think). What me do!?

    No, I don't have an old computer sitting around, and no, the problem is NOT this specific keyboard, and no, I do NOT have SLI, et cetera.

    DosBox.

    Explain how to send internal speaker output to the physical one while using DOSbox. If that can't be done, explain how to get sound working under Windows when playing a Win16 game. If THAT can't be done, give me the help files from the Win3.1 installer and I'll probably never have to complain again about anything that would be considered obsolete by everyone except a handful of people ever again.

    Why do you want to send internal speaker output to the physical one while using DOSbox?
    #
    Amarth 9 years ago
    Step one: plug in normal speakers in sound card.
    Step two, run sound through speakers.
    Step three, pretend it's your internal speaker and marvel at the incredible quality of sound it can generate.

    And I installed Win 3.1 a few times, and that wasn't too hard. 'Please insert disk 8/11 now, press a key when ready'. Good thing they invented CD-ROMs after that. So why do you need help files?

    [edit]Bah, you beat me to it. I'm going to have to modify the whole post now. [/edit]

    Change the setting in the setup file so that it uses the internal speaker. Start up DOSbox. Start up DSS. Direct it to your MP3/WAV. Don't enjoy.

    Now then, I need the help files because my specific Win3.1 did not include any, and it refuses to install without them. However, I have a six-disk set from off the internets, so that could explain it.

    No, it really does work. I'm not kidding.

    As for the help file part, I have acquired a seven-disk set from another part of the internets. I'm going to attempt to install that one.

    Hey, wait a minute... Amarth, whadya mean eleven disks?

    It makes sense for Windows 3.1.

    Anonymous1157 9 years ago
    Argh, nevermind. I got it. All I need now is to figure out how that thing-to-make-DOS7-look-like-6.22-to-apps utility-thing worked.

    ... Do I even have it anymore? :S

    Edit: Uh-oh. It hates DOS 7.1. Kinda weird how it let me install it with the "wrong" version, and even the OS part of the install worked fine.

    Oh, well. Off to get 6.2 again.

    Don't remember exactly, and might have been WIndows 3.11 or something. It's not as if I really care for these inferior operating systems.

    It was eight, or at least that's how many the one my dad just informed me he owns (!!!) has. You must be thinking of something else.

    ... And how dare you call it inferior! I spent WEEKS looking for MS-DOS sound drivers, and I ran into more Win16 drivers than I cared to count! Now, I wish I HAD counted!

    /me tries to get DOSbox exclusively to install crap because he does not have floppies.

    No. IIRC, he never finished ANY mods at all.

    Weird.

    When I close my browser, unread topics are marked as read for me.

    But I have had similar problems with Opera and Firefox (on another computer), just set cookies to remove after they expire. PHPBB related cookies expire when browser is closed.

    The thing is, I close mah br0wzar ONLY when I'm about to close my computer (or if the br0wzar starts fargling up). Also, cookies are set to be baleeted when they expire.

    A question one o' them teachers at the school I go to wanted me to ask if any of you could solve the following dilemma...

    In a computar network, there's a profile which is stored in the main server thingy. For some reason, the desktop fer the profile cannot be seen when logged in (i.e. the only thing you see on the screen after login is the taskbar and the desktop image thingy). You CAN, however, navigate to the desktop via file browser or sumpthin'.

    The main server thingy is using Win2003 servar.

    Well, I understand it, I think that's already worth a lot.

    [besides the question]
    Zeta functions are cool. I've studied the Igusa zeta function in detail, cool stuff. Wikipedia (currently) even links to an article written by my professor Denef in the article about the Igusa zeta function. How sweet of them.

    Linux.

    Or rather, nope, I can't help.

    Troubleshooting servers is not something I ever learned. Sorry.
