Re: How to: Imaging/cloning a harddrive, using Linux only....

in Milliways
"status=progress" is a super useful option to add to the end of the 'dd' command (exactly like that, no '-' or '--'.) It's a fairly recent addition so won't work in super old distros or Mac OSX/BSD. For example: dd if=/dev/sdx of=image.img bs=128k status=progress (Note that I'm not piping into gzip, …

Re: PowerVR Fun Thread

in Marvin \ Video
@leilei: nice work! Will have to check out Flycast. Let me know if you need better real hardware captures to refine the thing. Speaking of which, someone ran the PowerVR version of Tomb Raider on real hardware on a GDQ stream. I haven't watched the whole thing yet, so don't know if he mentions how …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

I got a laugh at the bobbleheads cropped out on static torsos. That would have been exponentially more difficult to do in 1992 than it is now, and I can't even imagine why they would go to the trouble. Would have loved to hear an example of that stilted dialog.

...set in a parallel universe in which the music scene is being dominated by fake artists and DJ’s. Shit, we did get sucked over into the parallel universe. I knew it!

So... Just in case anyone wasn't aware yet, the copy of Half Life 2 you get via the "time limited" trial on Steam is still seemingly DRM-free. I don't know if it'll delete the files or just remove it from the launcher once the trial period is up, but there's nothing stopping you from copying it to …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Gave the demo of the awkwardly-named Antigraviator a try. It's pretty much what you'd expect: grav.jpg Nothing original here, but it's quite good! Despite appearances, I'd place this more in the F-Zero camp than the Wipeout camp, as there's no pitch control and the physics are much simpler. Music …

Re: Need for speed 3 Hot Pursuit on Win98SE

Are there different retail versions of NFS3 floating around? I installed it off an original CD on fast P3 with a Quadro FX1000 (~GF FX5800) running Windows XP a while ago and I was able to play through the whole game with no issues. Don't remember what display driver I used but it wasn't anything " …

Re: OS/X "sweet spot" for useability vs. Apple bullcrap

in Milliways
Can you separate your requirements into "modern day stuff" and "legacy stuff"? I kind of upgrade OS X when I absolutely must, and it doesn't take long to hit some threshold where things just start falling apart around you if you don't move forward at least one notch. But, that's entirely dependent …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

I ended up bumping the OS up to 10.11 El Capitan . [...] So far it hasn't done anything to really piss me off ... Achievement unlocked: first major aggravation under El Capitan. While trying to install ffmpeg via Homebrew, I ran into a bug in SDL2 which prevents it from building from source. It's …

Upgraded... Downgraded? Sidegraded? Slightly-down-and-a-little-to-the-left-graded my 2012 Macbook Pro from a 2012, 1TB 5400RPM HGST drive to a 2008 200GB 7200RPM Seagate drive, since I was reinstalling anyway. 20200122_020656.jpg Why the crap would I do this? For a long time, I've been getting …

Re: New forum suggestions/Feedback

in Milliways
While the forum's getting changes, all I can suggest right now is collapsable quotes. Some are chronic big quoters that leave tiny posts (not naming names) This is done now. The implementation is not great due to limitations in the renderer but I hope it is serviceable. Let me know if there is …
