Re: ALT+Enter Stopped Working

First off, Scorched Earth is awesome. Secondly, check your graphics card settings to make sure that it's not been altered by an update when it comes to scaling of full-screen applications. Thirdly, check your DOSBox configuration file, as it sounds like a scaling issue. You can change the output and …

Re: Is there a way to make the screen larger?

That's what scalers are for. DOSBox comes with a load of scaling methods you can use in the configuration file, and there's also the option to set the resolution of the screen it'll be scaling to. The first thing to check though is that your graphics card scaling isn't automatically turning it into …

GET OFF MY LAWN (the YouTube channel)

Long-time lurker, irregular poster here. I was told in no uncertain terms to start blatantly advertising my content. I hate shilling my own wares but here goes! GET OFF MY LAWN : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCj_mkYyeGIb9MPSdb74ykA What is it? GET OFF MY LAWN is a PC gaming channel devoted to …

Re: Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II - How to switch GPUs?

Also if you plan on playing, either cap your frames to 30fps if you don't have a monitor with a variable refresh rate, or 47 if you do. That'll give you a smooth experience for the most part. Does this really work? AFAIK the game's camera updates at 30FPS, so why would a 47fps update make things …

I recently finished Freespace 2 with all the bells and whistles from the tremendous community courtesy of their Knossos launcher. It was probably the best space combat game I've ever played, and I include TIE Fighter in that list. It's like trying to choose between children or something, the …

To further add to what Garrett was saying, with Mint you can use Steam's Proton with Jedi Knight, which adds a compatibility layer that works pretty well last time I tried it. If you do make the jump to a more advanced copy of Windows there's the recently collated Jedi Knight Remastered mod, which …

Earlier in the week I tackled a game called Hacx from 1997, one of the last commercial games to be built using the Doom engine. It was unpolished and played nowhere near as well as its progenitor, so I shrugged my shoulders and moved on. Until today, when I discovered that a 1.2 standalone version …

Is 8 really as bad as people say? 8 does away with the party dynamics that made the previous games so memorable. The engine is the same as 6 and 7 but you only create one hero, the designated champion. Everyone else is a pre-made hireling that you have to recruit for some reason. It's a playable …

M&M2 is actually my favourite of the old school M&M games. I know people love Xeen but there's a charm to the interface and CGA graphics that just does something for me. It took a lot of what the first game did right and then expanded upon it. Also check out the various ports of the first two games, …

I just spent a few minutes wrestling with Attack on Altair, a side-scrolling ASCII shooter from 1983. Little did I realise that the fire button was F1, as a result most of my time was spent thinking it was some sort of bullet hell dodging game. Until I saw the demo of the AI playing it that was...

Re: What sound card do you use on your modern PC ?

in Milliways
I've been using an Audient ID4, initially bought for recording but now the main device for sound output. Sure it's no Audigy 2 but turns out it's really good at playing audio as well as recording it! The only issue is that it automatically mutes itself every time power is lost, meaning that if you …
