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. That is …

Re: Half-Life WON 1.0.1.6 Pause Menu Issue

in Windows
xash3d's that illegal source port that unfortunately gets smartypantsed around as blind 'this update fixes hl' advice... How is it illegal? Is the source code stolen from Valve or something? It is disappointing if it is illegal, as I imagined it might lead to source ports for various non-PC …

Re: Half-Life WON 1.0.1.6 Pause Menu Issue

in Windows
I see. I can't think of anything to fix it, sorry, but does it do it in all the renderers in the options screen, including software? If not, then that might be a clue towards the cause. First of all, though, you might want to try the Windows Engine port, Xash3D , https://github.com/FWGS/xash3d-fwgs …

Re: Half-Life WON 1.0.1.6 Pause Menu Issue

in Windows
What do you mean by 'pause' the game? I know HL has a pause button (at least I seem to recall that it does), but whenever I play HL, it's two expansions, or any of the mods, I pause the game by just pressing 'ESC' to go to the main menu, I never use the pause key. Have you tried pausing the game …

I remember getting Half-Life when it first came out, and being surprised that it needed around 400MB of hard drive space to install. Great game, though. The second official expansion, Opposing …

Re: "hidden gems" games 1999 to 2007

Timeshift , a first person shooter who's quality is very variable, with some great parts then parts that are boring, but the good parts of the game can be very good. It's a first person shooter, where you can control time, so that you can pause the game world, put the world into slow motion, and …

appiah4 wrote on 2019-12-27, 05:30: Doom (2016). It is the most fun I had with a shooter since Doom (1993). It is also dirt cheap on the Steam sale you should all buy and play it. Doom 2016 is really good. The sequel is due out in a couple of months, and is looking really good too.

Re: What game are you playing now?

I discovered the lineup from Arkane Studios this year with Prey. This game is absolutely amazing and everything I ever wanted - various hints to System Shock, a setting on a space station and a very rich story with a lot of mysteries. It's so much fun to get immersed into this game world and yet, …

Re: New forum suggestions/Feedback

in Milliways
I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings or anything, but this new forum look is awful. It looks cheap and amateurish, and isn't pleasant to use at all. I don't know about the actual functional improvements, as I've not yet tried them, but even though it's a new forum system, can a third skin/ …

Re: Carmageddon 1 hires low performance

in DOS
Agreed, 30fps is great. People were happy with a lot less than that in the early 3D hardware days (N64, Playstation, Sega Saturn, PC with Voodoo cards, etc), and lots of people still play those games on original hardware.

Re: The old Timeshift demo does not start

in Windows
Sorry, no, unless running it in a 32 bit Virtual Machine (such as VMWare) will work. Where did you download the 7 level demo, so I can check if it's the same one that I have (you start off talking to the woman, IIRC, I can't remember her name)? Actually, I'm not sure I ever played the later demo, …

Have a read of: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=46616&p=483606 and https://assemblergames.com/threads/timeshift-development-history.59888/ (and note that Assembler games might be closing down any day now, so you should probably have a look at that thread pretty soon). If that doesn't help …

Re: Half-Life Alyx

in Milliways
Like many people, I'm ambiguous about this announcement. On the one hand, it's another game in a series I like (plus at the moment the first person shooter is going through something of a bland phase, I believe, and has been for some time, so a new Half-Life game could be doubly welcome for me), but …

Re: How to link two routers together

in Milliways
Sorry for not posting earlier, my mate was working away from home (I know what that's like, it's not great). Anyway, he bought a powerline and everything is working fine now. Thanks for all of the help, it's much appreciated.

Re: How to link two routers together

in Milliways
First of all, thanks for all of the replies, and apologies if I wasn't clear in my original post. This is new to me, so I'm probably not using the correct terms, and maybe I'm making wrong assumptions. The situation is that my neighbour's house now has five security cameras fitted, and they are …

How to link two routers together

A mate of mine has bought a security system (four security cameras plus the base unit, it's this one: https://www.screwfix.com/p/swann-swdvk-845804v-eu-8-channel-1080p-cctv-dvr-kit-4-cameras/763gr?_requestid=618483 ), and he wants to connect it to the TV in his upstairs bedroom. Downstairs he has a …
