Re: Happy New Year 2021!

Happy New Year! Thanks to COVID, homeoffice and cancelled business trips I've had much more time for tinkering with retro machines this year. So in the end, this year turned out pretty well after all...

Re: What game are you playing now?

Let us know how it goes as you progress 👍 I am now 35 hours in and I really love the game. It's got a really slow start, though. I didn't like the gunplay at first, because all of the weapons were weak as hell. But the world really opened up in Act 2 (after 7 hours for me). Once I got more features …

Re: Good OS selectors ?

Re: Fact review on graphics card purchase for XP

My GPU of choice for Windows XP is the MSI N570GTX Twin Frozr III Power Edition/OC . Comes with a switch on the card for silent mode or power mode - the latter one is extremely loud, but for XP games I don't even need the extra power - so I always run it in Silent Mode and enjoy the games. Crysis …

Re: EU votes for Right to Repair

Bruninho wrote on 2020-12-01, 17:48: No, right to repair is about a bunch of (censored) trying to change the way the Macs are done to please their non-official dangerous mods & upgrades, at the expense of reducing the performance of these Macs That made me chuckle. It's such a load of bullshit.

Re: Post your 'current' PC

Some actually work better if they use both CPUs. Cloudpunk is a good example for that. I only tweak the affinity if the game runs really bad. It's kind of funny - I can understand why Eastshade didn't like it. But EA's Harry Potter was also really struggling and that's a Quake1 engine game. 😁

Re: EU votes for Right to Repair

From the first glance, this looks like an amazing idea. But being a citizen of Germany, I'm pretty sure it won't do a lot of good. The EU wanted to make sure we had the USB standard for chargers, too - but in the end, certain companies like Apple just provided a USB adapter for their own connectors …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I think I might start a serious playthrough of "Dragon Age: Origins". A lot of my friends kept recommending that to me over the years and today I finally got it in the Steam sale for a few bucks. After 82 minutes in, I could clearly see the game is old. Control scheme is a little weird (but not …
