I just installed Win 2000 Professional. Is it me or some emus really get noticiable faster (like Kawaks, for example)? I'd like to read some comments. Thanks! ^_^

Depends on the nature of the emulators, really.

I doubt you'll see an increase in anything that uses 3D hardware, due to Win2K's poor AGP support. But ddraw stuff (like Kawaks) might see one..

In some cases when U do a new reinstallation after formatting your harddisk then there seems to be faster things going on. Because the registry is clear and the drivers are sort of refreshed.But after you load your rest o the stuff the same old shit happens.......!

Yeah, that's really what happens... like, in 3D emulation there's no change at all (and some apps even stop working, like Driver... at least on my system). But graphs based on DDraw suffered a nice but sutil increase of speed...

Too bad I'll have to keep sticking with Win 98 for other reasons...

Hmmm... that's Windows' nature. It is stuck in the OS!!

I used W2K for more than one year now, and you're right.
On my system all the emus run faster than this shit of W98.:laser:
In W98 I noticed small breaks inside the games that I don't have inside W2K. And W2K never crashed inside any game.

The quality of the emulation under W2k depend on the quality of the hardware drivers used (Video, Sound, Pad, chipset, .....).
In my case, I prefer to play smoothly, securely and without strange things that I already read through this forum.

Finaly It's because I have no pbs at all, I don't post so much. ;)
