Re: Booting FreeDOS from a vinyl record (YouTube video)

in Milliways
Impressive indeed. And I thought loading 8-bit software from a C15 was retro. Maybe for his next trick he could try a wax cylinder? Or these ancient music programme sheets that were once used for automatic pianos? The only older technology I can think of is the one that served in ancient weaving …

Re: 8-Bit Guy video's are becoming a chore!

Maybe it's not the right place to ask, but and are there any good german speaking retro youtubers there? I try to keep my german alive somehow. I know Tuhl Teim DE but he's focused on more modern hardware. I would actually love to make a German spinoff of my English YT channel, however I don't have …

Apparently there are a lot of 'sss' sounds in English? idk. At least we don't have to memorize noun genders. This me reminds me of my English teacher from …

Re: Are there any more aspect ratio ultratolerant people?

in Milliways
- Internally, old consoles often used screen resolutions with another aspect ratio (5:4 or 8:7). No, the aspect ratio of (mostly) all old consoles is 4:3. That's the aspect ratio any TV would display those resolutions as. It's also what the games were designed around, and thoroughly iterated on. …
