Re: Failing SMD solder on old devices (pins of VGA chipsets etc. getting loose), how common is that?

Any number of things can contribute to that over time, but usually the root cause is just insufficient solder or a poor quality soldering job. The age of the parts plays a part, as does where the part is in relation to forces exerted on the card when one inserts and removes it. For example, lots of …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

There are Windows 10/8 and Linux drivers for DVI2PCIe... Try capturing video and audio at the same time with it in Windows 10. The video freezes. They advertise it as being able to capture both, and it CAN, but only in Windows 7. Oh, and don't buy their expensive audio/sd video breakout boards. …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

I found two more cards which might or might not have any potential. Anyone got experience with Epiphan DVI2PCIe? https://www.epiphan.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/epiphan-dvi2pcie-brochure.pdf And then Cards by "Foresight" e.g. FORESIGHT IMAGING I-RGB 165: https://www.fi-llc.com/boards/Products/ …

high refresh rate monitors are a blurse as well. Yes, you get buttery smooth motion, but your GPU actually needs to be able to render those extra frames. Or you can just play older games at 144hz! Or you could have a G-Sync or FreeSync monitor and use variable refresh rate. Works a treat so if your …

Could you give some examples of what you mean with washed up old developers releasing endless nostalgia-bait remakes? Mighty Number Nine was Keiji Inafune's clear nostalgia-bait re-imagining of Mega Man. Super Mario 3D All-Stars, a bare bones port released at full price Warcraft III Reforged. Nuff …

It's an art choice and no art appeals to everyone. Personally, I like RTMI's art choice, it appeals to me. And I wish you would stop stating such subjective opinions as if they were facts. The character look largely indiscernible from their backgrounds. Nobody seems to have any real facial …

So what is a great reason to hate modern games? Mix races within games? Or black people also being pirates which they actually still can be even in modern times? Care to elaborate? :P Holy projection, batman! Wow. Way to jump to conclusions! I was showing the horrible art style and janky animations …

A puzzle is a type of game. You do not need to be able to "win" a game. One of the definitions of game is "activity engaged in for diversion or amusement." so is jerking off a game? Eating? Reading a book? Watching paint dry? I'm willing to admit there's no accounting for personal tastes. I don't …

Video games are supposed to be an interactive media with a loss condition or they're not games anymore. Puzzle games say hello. Adventure games too actually. You're right, it's just a puzzle. It's not a game, in the same way a jigsaw puzzle is not a game. A jigsaw is a puzzle. The consequences of …
