[14:13:55] <banan> pentagram owns
[14:15:17] <sbx> i know
[14:18:38] * Sheng_Gradilla pokes banan with a stick
[14:21:21] <banan> haha
[14:23:11] <sbx> banan: yeah i use dosbox
[14:23:16] <banan> really?
[14:23:28] <banan> specs?
[14:23:45] <banan> I only got a 1GHz AMD processor
[14:23:50] <banan> it's laggy
[14:24:04] <sbx> 2.1GHz
[14:24:11] <sbx> i think it would work fine on 800MHz
[14:24:18] <banan> hm
[14:24:32] <banan> I've tried DOSBox..
[14:24:33] <sbx> you can change the frameskip and cpu speed
[14:24:40] <banan> I did that
[14:24:49] <banan> 10 frameskips
[14:25:05] <banan> too laggy
[14:25:25] <wjp> you realize that frameskip 10 makes everything choppy, right?
[14:25:30] <banan> err yes
[14:26:08] <Sheng_Gradilla> if it's choppy, it would certainly feel even more laggy
[14:26:16] <banan> yes
[14:26:28] <Colourless> on a 1 ghz. u8 is fairly slow
[14:26:34] <banan> exactly
[14:26:39] <banan> it's very choppy
[14:26:44] <banan> I need a new CPU
[14:27:05] <Sheng_Gradilla> or maybe an old one :)
[14:27:10] <banan> an Athlon(tm) 64-bit 4300+:D
[14:27:15] <banan> haah
[14:27:35] <banan> I don't like DOSBox
[14:27:44] <Sheng_Gradilla> what OS are you going to use on an Athlon 64?
[14:27:54] <banan> err.. I dunno..
[14:27:57] <banan> slackware?:D
[14:28:01] <banan> less is more
[14:28:05] <banan> oh that
[14:28:08] <banan> 's right
[14:28:20] <banan> I need an OS that supports 64-bit processing
[14:28:24] <wjp> why would you not like dosbox?
[14:28:35] <banan> I'm gooing to download Win XP 64-bit beta
[14:28:43] <Sheng_Gradilla> that OS sucks
[14:28:51] <banan> ok
[14:28:55] <banan> linux then
[14:28:57] <Sheng_Gradilla> guess why it's beta
[14:29:04] <banan> hehe
[14:29:28] <banan> hm
[14:30:31] <banan> wjp: DOSBox eats up all the resources
[14:31:19] <Sheng_Gradilla> banan: no, it doesn't, it only uses a lot of CPU power
[14:31:30] <banan> yes
[14:31:39] <banan> and that's not good
[14:32:29] <banan> it's ironic that you need a state-of-the-art processor chip to play old games..
[14:32:36] <Sheng_Gradilla> resources = CPU cycles + Physical Memory + Virtual Memory + Hard Disk Space + Other Devices
[14:32:51] <banan> ok
[14:33:02] <sbx> you can install ms-dos
[14:33:07] <sbx> get an old computer
[14:33:12] <banan> good idea
[14:33:55] <Sheng_Gradilla> you can get one for less than $50
[14:34:15] <banan> is it possible to optimize the conventional memory in DOS?
[14:36:10] <banan> ok
[14:36:14] <sbx> make sure to load as few drivers and tsrs as possible
[14:36:19] <banan> right
[14:36:23] <banan> got it
[14:36:27] <-- banan has left #pentagram ()
[14:36:49] <Sheng_Gradilla> actually, the only necesary TSR is the mouse driver
[14:37:05] <Sheng_Gradilla> and maybe smartdrive
[14:37:13] <Sheng_Gradilla> er... definitely smartdrive
[14:37:23] * Sheng_Gradilla remembers the load times
[14:38:25] <-- Kirben has left IRC (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
[14:38:39] <Sheng_Gradilla> must go
[14:38:43] <-- Sheng_Gradilla has left IRC ("bbl")
[14:39:03] <sbx> i never used smartdrive
[14:39:24] <sbx> well maybe on a really old one, with U8, it would be necessary :)

[19:45:45] <wjp> hm, you're asleep too? :-)
[19:47:16] <Ladynix> hahaha
[19:47:27] <Ladynix> it this always sleeping?
[19:48:40] <wjp> hm, not when we have something to talk about :-)
