  10. I was wondering if anyone dared comment on my deranged 3dfx blog. 'Enterprising' isn't really how I'd describe it. That's a nice list of Stephen's environment variables. His Watcom 'includes' don't seem to contain any third party stuff though. I never knew there was an editor called 'Brief' but it's still available. http://www.briefeditor.com/index.htm While I should use something like that for the retro vibe, I think I'll stick to VS Code for the modern 'niceness'. Most of the Watcom stuff is similar to mine though. Here's the batch file I ru
  11. You certainly are in an enterprising mood and being met with some success. Noname1668.txt had me wondering how the Watcom environment would be set up.

    Yes, we knew, but he finally came out of the closet, so there is that.
  14. Works perfectly with the 2.1.1 SDK. All the examples I've tried build without the slightest complaint from the Compiler or Linker. Don't think I've ever experienced that before. Running the exe's results in more sluggish performance though compared to the dynamically linked ones from the v2.3 SDK. This was the case for the pre-built binaries as well. I thought it was maybe something to do with Dosbox-X, but I installed the EF2000 Reloaded version of Dosbox with Wine and see the same thing. Anyway, we'll worry about that later.

  19. After setting up the Watcom environment, we can try to build 'test00.c'. Almost surprisingly, it compiles without any warnings, but there are linker errors aplenty. So, reducing the program to one function call, the linker complains it can't find _grGlideInit. Looking at the lib file in a hex editor, we see it labelled all in capital letters. If I manually edit it from GRGLIDEINIT to grGlideInit, I get a different linker error. I thought DOS was fairly case insensitive but maybe the underlying Linux system is having an effect. With this SDK, it doesn't loo

  21. ...and I seem to have a choice between MSVC or Watcom according to the 3dfx SDK readme. So, let's start with Watcom, (open-Watcom 1.9 DOS package) https://sourceforge.net/projects/openwatcom/files/open-watcom-1.9/ This may take a while...
  22. For reasons, I'm going to waste some time looking at 3dfx again to see if we can do anything at all for EF2000. To start, we need to get the 3dfx SDK contemporary with that version EF2000, ie about 1997. So, I'm using the second one down from here (CD-ROM : 3dfx Software Developer's Kit V1.0): https://3dfxarchive.com/reference.htm The intention is to use DOS as much as possible, but maybe ancient Windows may come in handy so I've extracted the SDK to 'drive_c' of the host PC's .wine folder as I'm using Linux (Fedora 32) for this. The SDK comes with some test progr

    Morning y'all, rain has stopped, cloudy skies, but the sun is trying to burn through the clouds. According to the weather app on my iPhone, we had 2.9 inches of rain. I put an empty mason jar on my deck early yesterday and this morning there is 3 inches of water in it. Currently we have 97% humidity and it is 66F. Expecting a chance of a scattered shower or two today, but partly cloudy this afternoon and a high of 75F. Power was out for about and hour and a half early this morning. Don't know why, but it was out. Smoke detector went off at 03:00. Don't know why, but these F
