Hello Targhan,

I tried the net to find a MUI version of Genesis, but in the end I just tried MiamiDX again.

It works now and I discovered the problem I had.
It has to do with my ethernet connection or ethernetcard itself. MiamiDX sometimes can't see the MAC adress of the card. So that is why I have troubles getting connected.

Thank you for your advice :-)

I've installed IBrowse2.3 (fully registered ofcourse) and the speed is skyrocketing :-D
YAM works too.

My next step is installing MakeCD3.2C

spidey:for quake 1 and fps counter... hit TAB (or go to console) and type : timedemo demo1
and let it finnish.

anyway i guess u aint running any w3d or such, as your card doesnt have a 3d driver yet right?, and thats why its slow.

on my a1260ppc i get 35 fps in quake 1 (800x600x16) and in quake 2 (read the doc in quake 2 to find fps counter)i get 25 fps, your pegasos should atleast give you 100 fps in both games with 3d support enabled.

the sound problems that you mention sounds like a driver issue, and i guess that will be fixed later on. (in later mos updates)

have fun

Anyone out there with MOS know if Octamed soundstudio runs ok as I don't know how much of the custom chips that package uses. Thinking of getting a Pegasos board and this could swing my desision of getting one or not.

Hello fortina,

Do you have an URL to a demo or something of this program?
I could check it.

I can't answer that for the current version but we do want OMSS running and have made arrangements to get it running.

It's available from the following page:

If you could give it a try that would be great as I'm sure I'm not the only one who uses OMSS and is thinking about the Pegasos board too. Cheers! :-)  :-)

Hello lempkee,

I guess I don't have a fast computer anymore.

Quake I
I got a framerate of 13 fps with a 1024x768x8 screen and with a 800x600x8 screen I got a rate of 20 fps!!

Oh well, it's fast enough for me! :-D

With Quake II I can choose something besides 'software' in the Options menu, but I don't know how to check it.
(no, I don't have a doc of this game)

I did buy Genetic Species of those EuroCD collection, that's my next try! :-)

MakeCD3.2C (with 3.2D installed on top of it) my burner works! (even 40x speed)

I've got to try my printer! (I almost forget that one)

Hello fortina,

I downloaded the file and tried it out.
OctaMED starts but it has problems locating the audio channels.

So I guess you have to wait for the new version?? (Perhaps somebody has tried it also and got around the audio channels)

spidey, something is not correct here, first of all you runned 8bit screen modes?====??=?=?=?? , dont u use GL QUAKE ? , it sounds like you are emulating it from what i can tell, maybe i am just tired.

you need to use GLQUAKewoS in 16bit . , maybe mos doesnt like it?,..hmm sounds weird.

Genetic species wont work on peagsos, pretty sure of that as it doesnt have 68k in it..and GS is a 68k only game...atleast last time i checked.

good luck spidey, and the speed results u gave me is not fast and i think u will be very HAPPY when u get this up and running properly.

as my system is from 92, and beats your fps counters, so something must be very wrong on your setup (software) , as soon as you have fixed that....well then you should be atleast 4 times faster than my sys... :)

keep the smile up and good luck.

Heh ?  :-o

Ever heard that there is a 68k-emu in MorphOS ?
 ;-)


Haven't tried that game, but if it won't run it ain't because
of the CPU, but more likely a AGA-based prob
1. Make an announcment.
2. Wait a while.
3. Check if it can actually be done.
4. Wait for someone else to do it.
5. Start working on it while giving out hillarious progress-reports.
6. Deny that you have ever announced it
7. Blame someone else

Well you compare hw accelerated to software
rendering.

92 ?

You mean you run Quatsch2 on an A4000/40 with 6mb, 25mhz and just AA ?

Hello lempkee,

I've got a Radeon 9000 64 MB and when I start Quake, first I get a requester where I can choose the screen modes. These are all 8 bit screen modes. After the selection Quake just starts.
And I don't think I got 3D acceleration...yet.

The mainfile is Quake V2.00. More info I didn't see in the dir.

About Genetic Species. The programs loads and I see a lot of intro pictures, but after that the screen stays black.
The program produces a few errors: it wants to open on a AGA screen and something with audio.device.

Hmmm, I also got a EuroCD with Pinball games. :-)

Hello Kronos,

You're right. This games wants a AGA screen unfortunately.

@lempkee

Hi.

I did some testing aswell. And just for fun I also tested the old
Amiga Quake68k under emulation! :-) Lets start with that:

Quake68k (only software rendering, no sound)
320x200x8 - 8.0 fps
640x480x8 - 2.6 fps
800x600x8 - 1.8 fps (that was a real slideshow ;-) )

QuakeMOS (only software rendering, with AHI sound)
320x200x8 - 87.4 fps (!)
640x480x8 - 29.0 fps
800x600x8 - 19.8 fps

As I said, these numbers are all based on software rendering. I have
no supported 3D accelerator. :-(

I tested GLquake on my oldest PC with an old celeron @ 500MHz, 256MB
memory, Matrox Millennium G450, running WindowsXP Pro (!!), and I
scored just under 100 fps on that!
(EDIT) That was in 800x600x16 (/EDIT)

So I guess that a Pegasos with a lean OS and HW accelerated 3D will
score *well* above 100 fps! We will of course get modern performance as soon as modern 3D hardware gets supported.
MorphOS is Amiga done right! :)
