Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

As a phone only without data they last way longer. If you use YouTube for a few hours that's a different story.. It depends on your usage. That's what I mean. You have FB, Tube, Whatsapp/Signal, news etc. that use check out all the time for no good reason draining your battery. I'd rather take a …

I long for the old mobile phones where a battery would last for a week. The new pocket computers are great and useful, but somehow it's acceptable that they last for a day and if two it's considered amazing!

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 …

Judging by these videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkFE1025hEw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7IsOGGJK5xY The display should probably look like that. There are also those videos you mentioned that show contrast problems.

What a strange combination ? Burgers and Nachos and Gelato ? What the heck ? It had nachos, guacamole and salsa. I've never tried any of the ice creams there, the colors already make me sick. I'm sure they have shakes as well, but I had a strawberry one at a Burger King in Poland last summer and …

I confess that, despite being a die-hard PC person in those years, I was actually jealous of some Amiga capabilities in the early 90's. Come on, we all were. I mean: Smooth parallax scrolling? Mod music? Digitized samples? How dare you get this from a mid 80's machine! Thank god Doom finally let us …

Re: Kawai GMEGA - Broken display?

I opened it and didn't see anything that could be used to adjust the display. I couldn't remove the secondary pcb, but I looked with the camera and didn't see anything that looks like a trim pot or a dial. I doubt it is between the display's pcb and faceplate Yeah, I wouldn't worry about it too …

I tend to spend a few bucks on steam sales if I see a dosbox game that I like and the price is low. I feel there are too many games on steam that are asking for way too much money when all it is, is a custom dosbox config file and/or a cracked exe. That's reasonable thinking. My reasoning is that I …

One thing to note about gaming is that even though you can emulate almost anything, there is still the difference between the CRT and a TFT. I recently tested Alone in the Dark 4 with both, and on TFT it just looked atrocious. Jagged edges all around, pixelated color gradient, poor colors, 5:4 …
