Hammer of Thyrion 1.5.7 (Announce)

> -sndpci works on this PC, too (Intel HDA).

Yeah, new sound lib is the biggest innovation for DOS in past year for me :)

> fastest speed, perhaps it's best to stick to low res (320x200).

Sure, but you know how 320x200 looks at 21" - much worse than on old 14" CRT in ancient days. I used 1600x1200 native but neither switch to 800x600 or 640x480 made it smooth in such cases of visible taranl. objects. It must be some bug or heavy unoptimization in the engine...

> Laggy menus have indeed "sometimes" occurred for me, but I just ignored it.
> That isn't core gameplay, so it's not big deal (to me).

Yes, but anoying when you you want to tune something in menu or just load/save. Quake2 DOS doesn't have such problem.

Yes, I meant binding. I use mouse wheel for weapon prev/next change usually in other games.

This is just list of bugs that I observed, I don't want to blame anybody...

BTW Eric told me that you told that new RactOS significantly improved NTVDM to make DN3D playable :) Nice, I'll try (if it will boot on my real machine)...

DOS gives me freedom to unlimited HW access.
