Re: Is anyone excited for the Nvidia 3000 series cards

in Milliways
Am I excited for this new tech? Not really. I've always been lagging behind when it comes to computer hardware. Actually I'm very happy with my RX 570 and 580 in my PC's, I think Just Cause 2 looks amazing and that game is 10 years old. I have to give credit to Omnividia Consumer Products for …

Re: Which browser do you use?

At home I use Firefox because it has addblock and I use a nice visual theme. At work I use Chrome and I hate it because of all the adds. Don't know why Microshovelware tries to shove it's new browser down everybodies throat, that boat has sailed many years ago. Already didn't like it because of all …

Re: Some issues with Sports Car GT

No, I meant D3D12 as output API in the dgVoodoo configuration (General tab). Also, you need DDraw.dll and D3DImm.dll from the MS x86 folder because Sports Car GT is a pre-DX8 game (32 bit). Ah, I see now. And yes, I just tried Direct3D 12 (feature level 12.0) and everything looks allright. Thank …

Re: Some issues with Sports Car GT

Direct3d is very good too but certain elements are not displayed at all, the sky is completely white and cars are missing textures. Sounds like the usual AMD driver problem with D3D11. Did you try D3D12? D3D version of SC GT should work just fine (I tested it with 2.7) and unlike with the Glide …

Some issues with Sports Car GT

Hi, Since the website http://www.racecarsim.com/ is up with addon cars and tracks I really wanted to replay this little gem of the past. However Sports Car GT (SCGT) has allways been a pain in the lower back to get running ever since I bought it in the late nineties. Some of it, I think, has to do …

Re: MicroProse Resurrected!

in Milliways
A couple of new games from Drakeling Labs are being published by them on steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/793560/Warfare_1944/ https://store.steampowered.com/app/736590/Operation_Harsh_Doorstop/ Harsh Doorstop? Are they running out of names? 😂 To be honest, what I've seen so far from the …

MicroProse Resurrected!

in Milliways
Don't know if this news was posted before, copying this from Strijkbout's topic from GoG.com forum. Apparently a guy from Australia bought the rights to the MicroProse name and is bringing out new games under that name. https://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2020-05-05-microprose-returns-after-two- …

Re: Some guys opinion about DOSBox

in Milliways
Apparently I was one of the few people on earth which typed "INTRO" at the command prompt and read it. But yeah, Dosbox is what it is. Can it be improved? Sure but at the moment it's still the best and most versatile Dos emulator. INTRO is not going to describe e.g. why MIDI port detection does not …

Re: Sound Blaster Audigy Rx...oppinions?

in Milliways
I personally haven't seen any issues with the X-Fi cards - I have both X-Fi (PCi-e) and Audigy 4 (PCI) cards. If you want to run EAX properly you should build an XP box with an X-Fi card. Alchemy is alright, but it doesn't work with EAX 1.0 games such as Planescape:Torment. I'm not sure if it's …

Re: Sound Blaster Audigy Rx...oppinions?

in Milliways
I see thanks. Though EAX should work with this card for old games right? Even if it's just emulation how does it hold up? Still cant beat the real thing but if you don't want a dedicated XP box I guess its ok https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QLj9obfMppk Thanks, the comment section was quite …

Re: Sound Blaster Audigy Rx...oppinions?

in Milliways
windows vista introuced a new audio stack in which hardware support for the directsound/directsound3d APIs was dropped, which is what EAX was an extension of and what games have been written for mainly until that point. from vista on directsound only runs as a software emulation, so the DSPs on …

Re: Sound Blaster Audigy Rx...oppinions?

in Milliways
you have not specified which games you actually intend to play on this thing. i have tried this card briefly on win7 x64 and it's essentially an audigy 2 zs bridged to pcie+toslink. being able to use it on the newest motherboards does make it somewhat interesting but the matter of fact is that EAX/ …

Sound Blaster Audigy Rx...oppinions?

in Milliways
Hi there, :) For a while now I'm eyeing the Sound Blaster Audigy Rx since I'm not too happy with the audioquality of my onboard soundchip which I have hooked up to my livingroom TV and stereoset via HDMI. It seems like a good deal, it has 7.1 surround (of which I think I will only use 5.1), supports …

Re: [Racing games] Learn to drive, funny cars, IA faults

in Milliways
Well, that was useful. I usually play mostly arcade, but the goal is to play better on more realistic games (rFactor and so on). I'm interested on Richard Burns Rally... does it have a virtual instructor or the tips are only written on the manual? I liked the flight school on Flight Simulator …
