Re: What game are you playing now?

Might as well post an update, since I'm proud of myself. I mean, I've only owned the digital version of the game for the better part of a decade. End.jpg I have managed to beat my physical copy of X-Wing Collector's CD, and I did it with full Kalidor Crescent honors. image0.jpg have you played …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Between sessions of the entire Legend of Zelda Series and a few other games, I have been playing old Star Wars games. This time around, it started with both Rebel Assault games, and has now hit the point of me finally getting through the first Tour of Duty in X-Wing Collector's CD. I managed to snag …

Re: Sound card advice for SS7 build

Are there any specific games that you're wanting to play with this system? If so, just list them and it can help us figure out if you'll have any issues with specific cards, and will definitely help us figure out how much you need something like True OPL, or something like a Wave Blaster header, …

Re: What stuff are you into outside the retro computer scene?

I’m not much of a reader but star wars and star trek novels would be fun to look into if I ever decide to get into reading :-) I tried listening to some of the dune books and hitchhikers guide on CD not long ago and was put off by how slow they are at getting to the next scene haha The Star Wars …

I do a hell of a lot of reading, even if it's mostly Star Wars EU/Canon books. There's very little past the thrawn trilogy in the old EU I haven't read, and little in general for canon. Luckily for the canon books, I can listen to an unabridged, well produced version while out walking as well.

Re: Sound card options for a 386SX

Hi everyone! I'm planning to build a 386SX PC, but I'm a bit lost about which sound card should I get. I would like to have as much SB-Pro compatibility as possible, no hanging note bugs and MPU-401. Thank you for your replies!! Be on the look out for a Yamaha YMF based card, then. They seem to …

Re: Why I do this

so I can play battlefield 1942 and it fits better with the Pentium 3. Maybe it's more fun to think about playing Battlefield 1942 than it is to actually play Battlefield 1942? It's usually more fun with specifically BF1942. Nothing quite beats killing yourself because you dropped a bomb then dove a …

Re: How many working computers do you have right now?

in Milliways
The PS3 is a great Blu-Ray player, but it does not do such a great job on DVD video content (natively interlaced SD content), unfortunately . Probably best to run those on a PC based player anyway with a custom image processing chain . You’re not wrong on that, but most people don’t seem to notice …

Re: How many working computers do you have right now?

consoles are indeed working computers, i didn't count them, i do have 4 working ones, nothing rare just leftovers of the past. Consoles from PS3 era onwards doubled up very well as online media systems and the like too The PS3 is probably the best Bluray player ever made, yeah. And since I …
