Re: What game are you playing now?

Honestly, I would have preferred if id Software kept going on the route they took for Doom 3. I liked Doom 2016, but Eternal didn't do it for me at all. I don't understand what's the necessity of limiting most combat to "arenas" with endless waves of enemies popping up, and all of this "combat loop" …

Re: PSU Oddity

P8/2 should be +5VDC, the same as P9/4, 5 and 6. Which is strange since these should all measure the same (unless for some reason your PSU has that line on a separate rail, which would be uncommon for an AT unit). With the PSU off, please check continuity between P8/2 and the +5V wires of the other …

Re: Worst LucasArts/Sierra adventure game

In point & click adventures, Sierra first put the "adventure" by establishing the genre itself (meaning graphic rather than text-based) and LucasFilm/Arts added the "point & click" with the verb interface and dialog trees. So they are essentially the equivalent of what id Software was for first …

Re: AN430TX/LT430TX Owners?

I have a Gateway 2000 with the same board. Intel bios disabled video. Where did you find a Gateway Bios? In my case it originally came with the Gateway BIOS, but I also found the latest version online years ago: 7502875.exe If you currently have the Intel BIOS, you probably need to use the recovery …

Re: SIS 496/7G rev 1.02 problems, RTC stops when computer is off, FDC failure when cold booting

Since the SiS 497 has an integrated real time clock, the motherboard is probably using that instead of a separate chip. So you may want to check the 496/497 datasheet (there's info about the RTC in page 73): SiS 496-497.pdf Try to follow the traces to see how it connects to the battery. If the clock …

Re: AN430TX/LT430TX Owners?

I have an LT430TX, more precisely an OEM version of the board that came from a Gateway 2000. It has onboard ATI Rage video but no sound. Interestingly, the onboard video works only when using the Gateway BIOS. If I flash the generic Intel BIOS, I can only use the board with an add-on PCI video card …

Re: Cable / Connector Identification Needed

I also have a PA-09, it's a quality tool but useful only up to AWG 22 wire (I have done some AWG 20 but it's a stretch). What I usually do is crimp the conductor part and make sure it's a secure connection, and then I crimp the isolation. Some specific tools can crimp both at the same time, but with …

Optiquest Q71 - Erratic button behavior

I got a Viewsonic Optiquest Q71 (date on the back suggests it's from around 2003), and when I fired it up for testing I was pleased to find out that it has a very sharp image with vibrant colors, so it seems what the original owner said about it having very little use is true. However, when trying …
