Re: Are there any more aspect ratio ultratolerant people?

in Milliways
I don't mind aspect ratio being a little off. 4:3 games on 5:4 doesn't seem like much of a problem. I've sometimes stretched 16:9 videos on my 16:10 monitor. It's more of a bother with videos of real people but I don't care much if it's just graphics. I have an old Samsung TN panel 16:9 monitor that …

Re: What display do you use for gaming ?

For 2D era game consoles, and maybe a future MAME setup: I've held on to 3 CRT TVs, all from ~2005 when the last of them were being made. 14" Toshiba (14AF45?) 20" Panasonic Tau 24" Toshiba 24AF44 Of these I think I like the 20" Panasonic the best. I need to try making service menu adjustments on …

Re: Anyone know about this keyboard?

in Milliways
That calculator feature is crazy. I've never seen that. Maybe not a bad idea though, especially for the DOS era when running a software calculator wasn't convenient. Never used that keyboard but I had a Wang keyboard from that era which uses "Alps White" switches - I think. All I really know is that …

Re: Windows XP PC that I built today.

It's been a while since I turned on my WinXP desktop, even though I still consider it one of my "current"/everyday usage PCs. But like xefe, I just run whatever is the last version of Firefox (52.something.ESR I think). Thus far I haven't run into any problems, but some bank web sites are starting …

Re: Fixing geforce cards

Shamino, now that's a name associated with good quality products! My EVGA X58 Classified never misses a beat :D I had to look that up to figure out what you're referring to. :) But nah, I wasn't thinking of that when I made the username. Interesting freeze spray trick, does that make it worse or …

Re: Fixing geforce cards

FX5800 had RAM failures mostly. Guess it's the DDR2, i'll hit the memory hard this time :) I had a similar problem on an FX5200 PCI. I tried using freeze spray for the first time ever, and it seemed to give me the answer. I sprayed each of the chips (including the GPU) with freeze spray and found …

Re: Windows XP PC that I built today.

Think we need to just have a dedicated thread for trim with performance and longevitity statistics and everyone link it in their sig. Getting really old. The safedisc and SecuROM issues are real, unknown about starforce. Use CD cracks and or make sure you make a backup image for easy restore. …

Re: Windows XP PC that I built today.

I was thinking of putting a kinston SSD there that I have lying around, but I was worried about windows XP not having the trim function. I don't know if there is software for kingston SSDs that allow you to do trim manually. I use "AData SSD Toolbox 2.0.1" on XP. It doesn't care what brand SSD you …
