Call for Links to Old Software

Post by ctgeorge99 »

Predicting that I will have some time no my hands in the coming weeks I have decided to see if I can work at extending the life of my VA-503+/K6-2+ for 10 more years. It has been a reliable old gaming/software rig, but it no longer seems to want to run at main bus speeds over 100Mhz (I figure the caps are finally wearing out even if they never leaked). Anyway . . . I have spent some time browsing the old site and found that the links for some of the software no longer work (though I am ecstatic to still have this site hosted!). Does anyone have or know where to find (several search engine queries were fruitless) the following:
Central Tweaking Unit
PCI to CPU latency (I have the George Breese latency one, but I dont think I ever tried the one linked on the download page).

Thanks! If I decide to recap/refurb the old girl, I'll post results and process in the Hardware section.

Oh strange, I didn't realize that the downloads weren't working. I will see what I can do about it when I get some time. Thanks for the heads up and good luck with your rig!

All of the downloads should be available now. Let me know if you have any issues.

Thanks Nohr! Not sure how I have lived without Central Tweaking Utility for 20 plus years. The link to the latency fix still doesn't work, but I use a George Breese version that seems to do the same thing, so no worries. Anyone who needs the George Breese latency fix let me know.(usually in fixing gapping sound on old sound card while the PCI bus has heavy load).

Also, found that Phil, a member who posted quite a bit on this site, also has a page of programs to download for tweaking the K6-2/3s:

Thanks Phil.

Strange, that download works for me in two different browsers, logged in and as a guest. Are you still having issues?
