Re: If we were to accept 15 years ago as retro....

in Milliways
Just look at how much progress was made between 2000 and 2005 (Quake III Arena / Quake 4) and how much in any 5 years interval since then. This is a really interesting concept. Most games from 2011 still look good and there's really nothing to complain about the controls. Think about games from …

For me I think of retro as not used or supported anymore. You can lump anything that has [...] standalone sound cards. To this day I don't consider a PC complete without a dedicated sound card.

Re: Iconic Sound Blaster CT numbers

Gravis UlraSounds on a Wall and not used :( When so many peoples never heard how they sound. One of my friends had a GUS back in the day when I had a SB16 and I got a lot more use out of my card then he did, dumping it for a soundblaster after a year. If you like the old demo scene, tracker music, …
