Re: Is anyone excited for the Nvidia 3000 series cards

DLSS didn't really become meaningful until late 2019 (DLSS 2.0). So there been a year at most of meaningful DLSS pushing, and most of it at reduced productivity because of COVID. Turing cards were also very poorly received. It's 2021. February, to be exact (please don't quote this and try to be …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Heroes VII the campaigns, as there are so few mutliplayer / skirmish maps. Such a shame. I've been looking into Heroes VI which I have yet to even begin to play, but heard there are huge bugs in the game - especially on Windows 10. Also I've been playing Survarium again (free to play FPS). The …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Almost gave up on Homeworld cuz it's so hard. Then figured out if I lure enemy ships to my mothership rather than raiding them it's easier to take them out. So continuing on for now. Homeworld was beautiful but the gameplay was particularly flawed, as you've discovered. Especially in Skirmish mode. …

Anyone had luck with HOMM VI?

Been looking for the best way to play Heroes 6 (with all the expansions) on PC, but my experience with the game previously has been a buggy mess. I am talking many years ago, but recently I've read that the game doesn't play nice with Windows 10 either. Black screens, refusing to save etc. It's a …

Re: Is anyone excited for the Nvidia 3000 series cards

DLSS on the other hand would be a pretty good card seller if a lot of games supported it, but that does need very Nvidia specific support. Question is how much of that will get handled by middleware, or how much will be up to individual game developers. We can take a pretty well educated guess, …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I was working my way through a replay for Morrowind for a few weeks but decided to take a break. I'll return to it shortly ... just moved all my stuff into an abandoned boat and furnished it with 100+ glass lanterns. After a 3 hour "moving day", it kind of took the wind out of my sails. Currently …

Re: Is anyone excited for the Nvidia 3000 series cards

I'm really curious what Nvidia feels more threatened by though, AMD graphic cards or consoles. They should feel threatened by both. The 20XX series pricing was ridiculous from the start, Jensens promised 120+ RTX games after 18 months fell short by ... 111 games. The 2070 was selling for £550+ in …

Re: Is anyone excited for the Nvidia 3000 series cards

Obviously these conversations of being excited about the 30 series are all silly until there are actually cards available to buy, the prices have settled (still going north, think £850 instead of the £700 MSRP), and once we have seen what Big Navi can do. Most people don't spend £850 / $900 on GPU's …

Re: What game are you playing now?

BFG Edition was basically a port for the newer generation consoles. It didn't improve anything - adding a torch strap only made the game less atmospheric and terrifying. It's kind of weird that the flashlight as a dedicated weapon was the #1 complaint of the original Doom3 and there was the …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I heard the bfg edition made almost everything worse. You heard right, IMO. BFG Edition was basically a port for the newer generation consoles. It didn't improve anything - adding a torch strap only made the game less atmospheric and terrifying. They messed with Doom 3, Metro (redux editions) and …

Re: Hard to find a Radeon 9800 XT?

Yeah I have a Medion 9800XXL ( I had two but sold one to a complete idiot on AMIBAY who messed me around for two entire months ) and, after benchmarking, the performance was higher than my stock Crucial 9800Pro but still slightly lower than a true 9800XT. The cooling solution is decent, but it makes …

Re: Most beautiful Dos-Games for a 486...what are your favorites?

in DOS
A middle of the road 486-DX2 is what I presume you're aiming for. Good looking games from that era on DOS were ... Doom 2 Heretic XCOM : Terror From The Deep The Legacy Simon The Sorceror (rivals Hand Of Fate graphically, though not in terms of story) Blackthorne Ecstatica Little Big Adventure Rebel …

Re: What are you eating/drinking? (the vogons food thread)

For the past few years I've been threatening to grow chillies every spring. Never actually managed to do it until this year. So being without a garden, I used every available windowsill in my apartment and planted 20 (ish) various firethrowing chillies (hot lemon, habanero, birdeye and ghost) from …

Re: AMD stopped producing Radeon VII

As a gaming card it still makes no sense at £599. Even with a few at £560 on deals, it's far too much for a top tier GPU that isn't even at the top. As an industry card it's obviously awesome for the money. Vega56 should still be the best gaming GPU deal in the UK at the moment, but not sure how …

Re: LG 4K TV is depressed :(

Agreed that it did cross my mind when buying this TV that it was cheap for the spec! which was similar to TV's from Sony and Panasonic costing closer to £600. I honestly only had £400 to spend. At £350 (had a 10% off code for AO) I thought this LG was a bargain and I'd never had an issue with the …

Re: LG 4K TV is depressed :(

Absolutely. I mean it cost me £400 just 18 months ago. I immediately went to the paperwork and the LG page ( I bought it through ao.com ) and all I read was 1 year warranty. I figured I was up shit creek without a paddle then. Maybe I should give ao.com a call. I saved for an entire year to get this …

LG 4K TV is depressed :(

OK my 1.5 year old (I could cry.....) 4K 43" LG is turning blue. Is it depressed?! First noticed a few months ago a slight blue tinge at the top of the screen on the right (IPS panel btw). It slowly grew like bacteria in a petri dish, spreading downward to the lower part of the screen. Then another …
