Re: What game are you playing now?

Do I need to run FASTVID or something first? Yes, either that or MTTRLFBE.EXE. Without using one of those, software rendering frame rates are significantly lower. Also, make sure that Quake is patched to version 1.08. To eliminate the stutter you might need to turn VSync on by adding this to config …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I'm running Quake 1 on my AthlonXP + GeForce4 rig. Getting over 100 FPS at 640x480 in software mode, which is how I like to play that game. While GLQuake is nice and would provide even higher frame rates, I prefer the look of software rendering in Quake 1 since that's how I played it as a kid. BTW, …

Re: 8-Bit Guy video's are becoming a chore!

"Technology Connections" I love that channel! In particular, I found his videos on laserdisc and Sony Trinitron very well made. Guess I'll follow the current trend and recommend "This Does Not Compute" as a similarly underrated channel, with high production values and a lot of interesting of retro- …

The difficulty is more manageable and the quality of the maps is better. Even the story seems more interesting (the bit with …

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

1. I find the moon logic in some Lucasarts adventures such as Sam & Max Hit the Road to be just as frustrating as the dead ends in some Sierra adventures. I remember reading somewhere that the solutions to many adventure games from that era were borderline illogical so that they could sell more …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Still playing the Price of Loyalty expansion for HOMM2. Finished the Voyage Home and Wizard Isles mini campaigns, left the two bigger ones for last. They really ramped up the difficulty for the expansion missions, sometimes a bit too much for my liking. I particularly hated the maps where …

Re: Do you use CRT monitor for gaming?

Yes, I'm using my 17" Samsung SyncMaster 795MB CRT monitor most of the time. It's capable of running 640x480 and 800x600 at 120 Hz which looks super crisp. Those are my preferred gaming resolutions under Win9x as the UI of most games from that era happens to be designed around them. I also play DOS …
