Re: Bruninho's Virtual Machines (Windows, Linux, Mac)

I fixed GP3 under Win 11 Pro ARM64 in Parallels. Now its buttery smooth even with dgVoodoo 2 and hardware mode. I don't know how, but not it works now. So it's GP3, GP4, Counter-Strike 1.6 and Max Payne 1 running well. rFactor 2 and possibly CS:GO will follow suit once I arrive back in Rio de …

Re: Technological critique

I don't think it fits here, but my "technological critique" is about what the Web is today and what is shaping to be in the future. Not looking good. We went from document web to applications web. browsers were meant to "read documents on the web" yet now they are "web apps". Full of frameworks and …

Re: Bruninho's Virtual Machines (Windows, Linux, Mac)

Grand Prix 4 running under Parallels Desktop on my M1 MacBook Air has a mind blowing performance, even with a custom GP4 mod installed. The Parallels Desktop VM is the Windows 11 Pro ARM64; Parallels runs it perfectly. UTM also does run Windows 11 Pro ARM64 perfectly, but lacks 3d acceleration. …

Re: DOSBox-X branch

Speaking of old SVGA emulation, Anyone know how to fix the yellow tinting screen when using SDL2 build of DOSBox-X? I get that whenever I want to use more than 256 colors in Windows.

Re: Members of Vogons, what shows do you currently watch?

I loved all of the 80/90s series, growing as a kid back then. I watched Miami Vice, Growing Pains, Full House, Blossom, Party of Five, 90210, Melrose Place, Silk Stalkings, ER, Renegade, Magnum, Macgyver (this one my favorite #1 show), Moonlighting, Married with Children, Alf, Knight Rider, The …

Arrow / Flash was good for a couple seasons and then went on well past the expiration date It was the same way with the original Supernatural series before it just kept going on forever I didn’t mind Grimm or Emerald City and don’t think it was given enough of a chance (should have lept into …

I'm waiting for the next seasons of Foundation, Cobra Kai and Spy Racers. I've finished "Covert Affairs", "Carmen Sandiego", "The Last Dance", "Fuller House", "Lost In Space", "Designated Survivor" and "Downton Abbey". Meanwhile I'm watching "The Ranch", "The IT Crowd" and I just finished another …

Re: Other hobbies?

in Milliways
Considering that we have a forum section (Milliways) to talk about everything else that is not related to computing, how about a topic to talk about football (soccer) or basketball? or any other sport? It is classified as a hobby, I think :P Maybe we can open a topic to talk about which teams we …

Re: oh when will the price of gpus come down?

in Milliways
My last gpu was a Nvidia GTX 750. In 2013/14. Answer to that question: Never. They will be up year after year and with rebranded cards too… Try to buy one in Brazil. Impossible unless you’re rich. Shouldn’t be that much different in Spain too. This is why I quit mounting new pcs.

Re: New Linux distribution that looks exactly like Win95

in Milliways
Looks a bit off. Lots of weird padding around the place. I think SerentiyOS does a much better job of "unix-like but looks like windows 95" though its not really trying to emulate Windows 95 specifically but rather that era of desktop software. More of a late 90s look: https://serenityos.org/ …

Re: QEMU 3Dfx Glide Pass-Through

I’m not demanding anything. You’re not getting my point here. I don’t give a damn to what platform this works or not. I am not asking him for a windows, macos, reactos, android or whatever version. Not my point here when I complained about lack of documentation. I am criticizing him for not being a …
