Re: Kids destroying computer hardware

At the age of three I destroyed our TV. It was on, I pulled the lid from the back and saw some colored wires. I wanted them. I though I would free the colors from the TV into the room. So I grabbed a handful and pulled with all my weight. The colors left the TV with some magic smoke and a loud crack …

Your oldest favorite computer game?

Hey there! I want you to try and remember the oldest computer game you actually like. This thread is not about how game A played an important role in the history of the genre or the whole industry, but rather about how game B managed to conquer your heart despite infinitely limited resources of the …

Re: S3 Virge GX 385 Video Noise Recap?

auron wrote on 2020-04-01, 17:21: i'd say the "942" on the memory is 99/42 and it says 9944 on the 74LVC08AD. but the s3 chip does indeed predate the rest of the stuff by about 2 years. Yup, my bad, I did not check all the pictures and did not care to look at the last digit of date code for memory. …

Re: S3 Virge GX 385 Video Noise Recap?

I know I'm bumping an old thread (sorry!), but... check out the production dates! Memory - 1994. Chipset - 1997. 74LVC08AD - 1997. BIOS chip - 1999. Mainboard - 2000! This looks really weird :) Good job on making this ViRGE great by the way! P.S. I think there's a short circuit between two SMD caps …

Re: Which video card should I buy?

My point is, the chipset is nice and compatible, but the cards themselves might not live up to your expectations in terms of picture quality if you're into that thing. In that regard, I would get the SpeedStar Pro. It should at least have quality output. You may easily improve picture quality for …

Re: Which video card should I buy?

S3 would be nice and compatible. However, you have to understand that Trio64 and Virge were capable chipsets sold in immense quantities for a very low price. There are very nice branded cards out there (Diamond Stealth64 comes to mind), there are cards from long-forgotten small companies that did …

Re: How is crossfire with two HD 3870?

I have zero experience with 3870, but HD4870X2 has been in my daily driver for 5 years. Hot as hell and very noisy under load, but I haven't had any crossfire issues. The card just worked. I expected a little better performance with all the hype, but I got the card in 2014 for 40 euros, I don't …

Re: Style problems/bugs

*reposting from "Welcome to the updated VOGONS" thread, I somehow thought that was the place to write about such stuff* There is a bit of an issue with "monospace" function. I expect it to be used in case you need characters to be aligned with each other for visual clarity. However, when I submit a …

Re: Welcome to the updated VOGONS

There is a bit of an issue with "monospace" function. I expect it to be used in case you need characters to be aligned with each other for visual clarity. However, when I submit a post, it destroys extra spaces between the characters, and the result is not what one would expect. If it is possible, …
