    In response to the large Zorua image below, I found vectors online and exported one of them at the maximum my computer could handle.

    Ever seen a blue-screen that tells you there is nothing wrong with your computer?

    Let me guess. Someone traced over these art... and that person is Cat?

    One thing I have noticed is that sending the Internet Explorer 5 user agent string will cause the forums to send different styling information just to not have the width expand horribly.

    So how does Opera 10.63 treat you on the Windows 98 computer?

    I think you might want to keep it around just in case

    I've never been able to figure out exactly what to do with the IR sensor.

    I still remember that
  25. Cat333Pokémon
    May 9, 2012 12:33:37 PM
    Haha. I once changed the Windows 7 startup sound to the Windows 98 one. (It required modifying a system file externally.)

    As for FM8, seems like there's no link for it at the manufacturer's site.

    Sound extractors won't be able to extract nonstandard audio codecs, though
  29. Twiggy
    May 8, 2012 03:01:25 PM
    Fun fact: some sounds are generated in DPPtHGSSBW
  30. GalliumGrant
    May 8, 2012 02:19:29 PM
    Yes. I do. :3
  31. Twiggy
    May 8, 2012 07:02:30 AM
    (If you've been paying attention, you should now realize that the reason GB Sounds doesn't sound like the real deal is because of the DS's PSG shortcomings - while it has more channels, its programmability is reduced.)
  32. Twiggy
    May 8, 2012 07:00:25 AM
    As for the 3DS, not much is said about it, aside from the fact that it has dedicated audio hardware and probably does up to 24 channels. Oh, and for once, audio sample interpolation.

    Listen to the System Settings music in the 3DS and the 3DS Transfer Tool music on any DSi to hear the interpolation differences and the quality improvements it brings to the table. They use the exact same music.
  33. Twiggy
    May 8, 2012 06:56:22 AM
    And finally, the DS.

    16 not-quite-hardware channels (actually mixed in ARM7), capable of 8-bit, 16-bit PCM and ADPCM natively. The last eight acts also as a PSG synthesizer, 6 square and 2 noise channels. It seems to be of a simpler make than the GB/GBA PSG. Audio codecs are now actually feasible and usually output as a stream of PCM16 audio. Nonstandard ADPCM variants are also seen, as well as Ogg Vorbis. The DSi Music app can play Advanced Audio Coding files. (You know how good that is, right?)
  34. Twiggy
    May 8, 2012 06:50:40 AM
    Wow, and I'm off rambling off retro sound hardware.

    The GBA brought in 2 more DPCM channels, 8-bit. Pretty much no one used them as is - mix them in software! Audio quality depends on a lot of factors, such as programmer expertise, CPU time left over, sampling rate (can go anywhere from telephone-quality to overkill 65 kHz), size of samples (stored in system RAM), maximum amount of PCM instrument channels (in the hands of amateur sound programmers, every single one takes a slice out of the CPU time available. Now, I wonder what Camelot and Square Enix later on did...)
  35. Twiggy
    May 8, 2012 06:49:18 AM

    By the way, these waveform pictures? It's actually generated from a Game Boy game. The Game Boy's PSG isn't as simplistic as the NES'.

    Let me see...
    The NES can only do mono output out of the box, while the GB can do hard L/C/R, per channel.
    The NES has five channels - 2 square/pulse, 1 triangle, 1 pseudorandom noise, 1 DPCM. The GB, on the other hand, had 2 square/pulse/sine (can be swapped in the middle of a waveform, like the images shown), 1 does anything except can't be used as a PCM instrument channel (triangle, check, sine, check, square, check, extra harmonics, check, limited FM, check, 4-bit PCM (one-shot), check...), yet another pseudorandom noise channel, and that's it.

    The GB was certainly more flexible, given that we have to stick to stock hardware. However, the Famicom's sound was expandable. We know how that went.

    Maybe i should look up on that. Link?
  39. Twiggy
    May 7, 2012 03:55:41 AM
    On another note, were you using a real DX7, or an emulator, or just using a sample set that's close enough?

    The best part about the SoundCanvas Sound Set is that it's 16-bit uncompressed.

    Throw in ADPCM, and we're looking at 0.82 MB. Too bad it isn't, huh?

    (No wonder Microsoft Synthesizer sounds so retro - someone was being really, really conservative with the sample sizes! Windows 98's floppy mess will only get worse if they tried to squeeze in higher quality samples.)

  45. Twiggy
    May 6, 2012 04:24:16 AM
    Also, tons of thumbs-up for your remixes and demakes XD

    I also see that you get tons of mileage from a certain synthesizer.

    Microsoft Synthesizer's Sound Canvas samples are ancient at this point I think it was mostly the exact same set since, what, 1996?

    "The GM.DLS file contains the Roland SoundCanvas Sound Set which is
    protected under the following copyright:
    Roland GS Sound Set/Microsoft (P) 1996 Roland Corporation U.S.
    The Roland SoundCanvas Sound Set is licensed under Microsoft's
    End User License Agreement for use with Microsoft operating
    system products only. All other uses require a separate written
    license from Roland."

    Not to mention at 3.28 MB, there's not a whole lot to say about the sample quality. Makes you think of the memory-constrained early PCM synthesizers.

    Hi :3
  48. Cat333Pokémon
    May 5, 2012 12:09:01 PM
    Uhh...frankly, not really. I know of a couple games for 3.1, but I know very little software from that time. as for 98, a lot of modern software either still works with 98 (SE, usually) or has older versions for it. Opera is probably the newest that you can get on 98. Oh, and you should definitely install KernelEx on 98 so you can run some newer programs.

    Hehe. I've thought about a few interesting things:
    - DVR in a VCR
    - DVR in a VHS tape (actually, this was KYA's idea)
    - New computer in old case
    - A full entertainment center (maybe sans the speakers) in an old TV console
