Re: What's the dumbest retro mistake you've made?

in Milliways
My biggest mistake was throwing away my first computer. It was a Pentium 2 from 1999 with some Voodoo graphics card. I never even opened the case, I was a complete noob. I usually don't throw anything, I still have my Watara Supervision which is even older and doesn't work.

Re: Microsoft Flight Simulator

I don't want to play these AAA titles with low graphics settings, I want 4K and ultra graphics settings. But I don't want to throw away my money to build another desktop computer either, I'm fed up of desktop computers. My definition of playable does not mean being able to play a game on low …

Re: Sound much louder on PC front panel

Pretty much, I guess . Plugging and unplugging headphones from the back port would not be that convenient anyway . If you really want to drive headphones from the back connector (likely line-out level), you could always buy a headphone amplifier . Well, thanks for the info. All this is very stupid, …

Re: Sound much louder on PC front panel

According to the specs you provided, one of the outputs has a headphone amplifier, likely the front panel one . If you want to be sure, you will need to follow traces from the amp chip or ask the manufacturer . This is all new to me, I expected front and back ports to give exactly same signal. So, …

Re: Sound much louder on PC front panel

Specifying your board model would help . On the Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Master that I have , the front panel is fed by a headphone amplifier connected to a Realtek CODEC, whereas the back one is a line level out connected to an ESS DAC .

Sound much louder on PC front panel

Ever since I got my new computer I was disappointed how quiet the onboard sound was, until I connected the front panel to the motherboard and plugged my headphones there. The difference is very big. When connected directly to the back of the motherboard I had to be at 100% and it never felt loud …

I had to crop the image because I can't do large ones really... I can't either, for those I use "Image Enhancing Utility". It splits images in several smaller ones and then connects the results. This way you don't run out of memory when trying to upscale larger images. I set maximum size to 256x256 …

Which model did you use? Manga109Attempt, I haven't experimented with others on this example. https://upscale.wiki/wiki/Model_Database#Manga.2FAnime I actually thought I had those images you were looking for 2 months ago, went through my backup disk, but couldn't find anything then. Then yesterday …

I just checked the archived contents of www.cdrom.com Abuse section . Most files have not been preserved, but the box art section suggests there was a lossless copy of the box art available, very likely in high resolution. Anyone ever come across these files? I have this one I upscaled using ESRGAN …

China has been a plague on our economy that anyone alive before the bush era should know all to well. Before china started to steal jobs things were a heck of alot better then today. No china is stealing more then just jobs. Companies alone went to do business in China, nobody forced them to go …

Has USA ever looked worse internationally ?

in Milliways
First you got Trump who is controversial to say the least. Then USA regularly abandons many international treaties and organizations like UNESCO and now WHO, then various missile and nuclear arms treaties from Cold War era. Then the ongoing trade war with China that doesn't help anyone. Then you …
