Re: Retro Rig Photo Thread

486 done -- although I'll be upgrading to a VLB graphics card for better DOS performance. But I'm surprised all the parts work great with no issues. Quality stuff. :lol: Core Specs: Biostar MB-1433/50UCV-D Ver 1.0 Intel 486DX2-66MHz SX955 4x4MB Siemens 60ns SIMM ATI Mach64 ISA 2MB EXM913 Sound …

Interface Change and Memories

in Milliways
Man, the time's really gone by. I was 13 when I registered back in 2004, and I'll be 29 later this year. I remember the good old days, back when the simple, but entertaining interface with the long URL address with the word "zetafleet" being the norm on this website. Back then, I actually rebuilt a …

Re: post up pics of your "computing area"

I've posted about this before, but I've put a ton of work into this space over the last couple weeks, just tidying it up, fixing flaws, and generally making it nice to use. This is where I siddown and play some games : 1.jpg Sorry for the suboptimal lighting. Most systems of the 32-bit era (5th & …

Soul Reaver 2 on Windows 10 Crashing

in Windows
So, here is what's going on basically. I have the GOG release of the game, and even with that release, I have been having to troubleshoot it significantly. I used DgVoodoo2 3D wrapper from Dege v2.54 (released: 25.04.2017) to enable the character to devour souls, and stop any graphical glitches, but …

Oh man, times really have changed. That Acer with inflation calculated would have been 3.5K in today's currency. It was powerful enough to run Doom perfectly at least, and looks like an incredibly useful machine for its time.

That's a relief to hear!! I bought the game and does work fine, please do let me know if the fourth one works as well, because I'm thinking about getting that one as well. Just currently playing the first one, and it is quite amazing! I'd rather not install WC4, since it's 6GB, but I will point you …

Oh, well, before I install it, I want to double check. Were there any special steps you took to getting it to work, or you just simply loaded it? Just want to make sure, thanks! No, I just installed it and launched it. I watched a few intro videos, clicked around, jumped into a mission and it was …

Re: Opinions on Games

Cool, thanks for letting me know! I'm just going to play 1 and 2 anyways since I have Windows 10, and III and IV on GOG doesn't list 10 as an operating system it can run on. I doubt that there's any issue with III and IV on Windows 10. GOG probably just hasn't done the testing to make their support …

You can skip Academy and Armada though (and ignore the movie lol) Cool, thanks for letting me know! I'm just going to play 1 and 2 anyways since I have Windows 10, and III and IV on GOG doesn't list 10 as an operating system it can run on. Til I dual boot, I'll just play those two, and some Descent …

Opinions on Games

in Milliways
So, I'm considering a purchase of some games, but first I will point out that I have Star Wars X-Wing. So, I hear people praising the old Wing Commander games for DOS, but which ones should I play? I went into a store that specializes in retro games earlier today, and saw Star Wars: Rebel Assault 2, …

Holy smoke,:happyhappy: :happyhappy: I got to install PC DOS, and Windows 2000 sucessfully without data erasing! Now I can dual-boot! :happyhappy: Why are you surprised by that?
