Re: Some guys opinion about DOSBox

Most of the problems I apparently run into with DosBOX under Linux is due to me not using a i686 compile versus a x86_64 compile. I guess some of the code misbehaves really badly when compiled as 64-bit rather than 32-bit. That's probably not the case anymore but I never gotten around to pulling …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

I think there's a few FS2Open games/mods that try to go all "Newtonian Physics" simulation rather than the "arcadey WW2 dogfight sim" physics, if you're curious to see how that holds up in today's gaming. ... also good lord the FMV quality is horrendous, what were they using for cameras!?

Re: Style problems/bugs

Well, it's not just the display drivers colour management you have to worry about it's also the monitor itself. For example, with the ASUS VS228 monitor I use I have to explicitly go into the picture settings menu and set things to "sRGB", I can't just enforce a "sRGB Colour Profile" on the software …

Re: Style problems/bugs

I'd have to ask if you're able to set your laptop display to a properly "sRGB" calibration, same goes for every other monitor that you own. The laptop looks like it's colour temperature is biased towards the "cool spectrum", which for some strange reason some monitors default to doing that.

Re: Lithtech game performance

in Windows
Has anyone tested playing the games with the dynamic lighting turned completely off? Because dgvoodoo2's notes mentions that causing a massive hitch. I kinda wish WineD3D worked more like dgvoodoo2 for these old "16-bit only" games because I'm getting really tired of the poor performance and ugly …

I'm taking time to enjoy more of the RPG mod for Starsiege: Tribes. I'll just leave this screenshot with absolutely no context. Filename Screenshot_2020-01-27_06-45-24.jpg File size 102.13 KiB Views 101 views

Re: Welcome to the updated VOGONS

a website overloading the default system mouse cursor strikes me as a feature on par with background MIDI and spinning wordart gifs but tbh I didn't even notice it until people got all fired up about it, so I don't actually care I personally don't care either, but I can understand how it would make …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

Well don't "Pinned comments" always show on top regardless of the option? I never did look into that either but I figured if something is pinned it doesn't matter what the option is set to, it'll always be bumped to the top. There probably is a userscript people can use to automatically set the …

Re: Problematic games list

in Windows
Shogo: MAD and Blood 2 barely function properly even under Wine. But stability with those games can be achieved using a "undocumented" console command (I think it was like "max_fps" or "maxfps") to internally limit the execution rate to 60 FPS, and only using the "default" sound system. Even on …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

The comment's in there. You may just have to switch out of "Top Comments" to "Newest First" as only showing the top comments will truncate the list. :P Just a slight suggestion, but Youtube does provide the option to default the viewing of comments from "Top Comments" to "Newest First" and I highly …
