Re: Half-Life WON 1.0.1.6 Pause Menu Issue

in Windows
by also using leaked source, and claiming itself as from scratch GPL code, it's also a high risk of contagion. and yeah the HL SDK license is also super violated in the process Such a shame the HL scene seems accepting of legally toxic stuff. This shit used to be called out in other places.

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

in Milliways
Ironically some big "don't copy Windows" Linux distros and WMs do chase the modern Windows gimmicks while not having 9X-minimum functionality. We've seen this in the very Vista-inspired (and loathed at launch) KDE4. Windows derailed towards a 'tablet' UI since 8 though...

Re: Voodoo Disable Texture Filtering?

derSammler wrote on 2020-02-15, 08:35: Not true What was inferred to was a driver-level override (like it already does for trilinear and dithered mips). Also on a 3dfx card, bumping the texture filters off won't make anything look 'just like software' when there's other factors...

Re: PowerVR Fun Thread

I should probably post some shots of that current filter. A couple of these shots have a NTSC shader over them to demonstrate how this could be mistaken as 'anti-aliasing' on a TV. It also should be noted that not every DC game enables the dithering!!! Soul Calibur turns it off, so being part of an …

Re: Voodoo Disable Texture Filtering?

Not possible! The only filtering you can turn off is the video filtering. Also that PCX2 doesn't sound like it's being used. You'd notice the lack of blending functions before the framerate, and it would've been filtered by default (it's all or nothing for PCX2). Also I remember I couldn't get it …

Re: svga/vesa emulator for dos?

The Tseng ET3000-4000 is probably likely the alleged "pure VGA" card in use if it's fast enough for Quake. Running INSTVESA insted of INSTALL would get NFS going in that case (as it loads UNIVBE). EDIT: A thread that's now deleted implies ET4000 is indeed the "pure VGA" card with the imaginary …

Re: PC Gamer/Computer Games Strategy Plus completely gone?

in Milliways
IIRC Future Publishing had requested PCGamer to not be scanned years ago. Hadn't stopped dumping of their cover cds though ;) Strategy Plus on the other hand is a whole lack of awareness (especially after the constant rebrandings and PCGamer's reputation on the later internet as the only computer …

Re: PowerVR Fun Thread

Also in the shader I did attempt to try to mimic the feedback/bleed in your VGA captures :P though it may be too exaggerated... The composite mode blur I don't think is captureable losslessly without needing some kind of dev box to dump the PVR2 buffer or so. I had to use old .TIF/.BMP press release …

Re: Half-Life WON 1.0.1.6 Pause Menu Issue

in Windows
For what it's worth, Half-Life's menu being busted is normal behavior even on Win9x machines with proper era-appropriate hardware. Valve couldn't code a stable frontend for a long time. It'd corrupt itself a lot trying to maintain a buffer for 640x480x16. There's registry keys about the menu in \ …
