Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
recently i loaded gta3 on a machine just to test and ended up playing yet again, only this time i won 'Turismo' (El Burro's first phone mission) with a plain Taxi. i used to find this difficult as the competitors, though crashing all over, always seemed to recover and speed away at critical moments …

Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
HL2 did feel like disconnected levels, there were things i really liked though - the opening world building and the initial 'escape', i liked the car bit too and some of the environments - but it wasn't cohesive like HL1 and didn't have the black mesa environment, that was (and still is) one of the …

Re: AI users?

Man, I can't even wrap my mind around why someone would send AI over here. To what end? maybe in order to... I wonder what a model trained on all VOGONS content would be like.... The insanity. :) maybe it isn't "someone" sending an LLM here, maybe they just crawl around the net now there are some …

Thanks for the link to that german page. The company Computec Media it seems actually bought over MC publications. The programmers who did the conversions were Dencker & Barile and maybe someone called G. Droschl. I'll have to do a bit more searching:) Who knows they might still be active somewhere …

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

in Milliways
Like you, I don't watch TV a lot at all. Specifically, I try to avoid any modern series, no matter how good friends tell me they are, because with multiple seasons and 10-20 episodes per season they are huge time sinks. By "modern" I probably mean anything 21st century. The only shows I still …

Re: NT 4.0 is an excellent option for a Pentium Pro/II class system, and is my OS of choice for games that don't require

If you need DX6 or newer, then yes, go ahead and bite the much higher RAM and CPU needs for win2k. Very solid performer in that era. I think that's the thing. the gap into which NT4 fits is relatively small, the moment there is a few hundred mhz and 128mb ram then 2000 is more than fine (it can be …

Re: When PC became soulless for you?

in Milliways
My interest in modern hardware died with Windows 10/11, then returned once I discovered Arch Linux, so... never. i'd say never too, on reflection maybe the point at which the PC is a closed commodity good where in there is no (convenient) means to alter either hardware or software it will be dull …

Re: Looking for a piece of software

did you request this a few years ago on 'some' other website? i think its a tough find to be honest, normally would show up on any string search so guess it may be lost 🙁 a bit of history for anyone interested... https://www.ceeprompt.com/articles/031196.html

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

in Milliways
For many classic games, I prefer to play modern ports or mods on a modern computer. For example, if I feel like playing X-COM, I'll play OpenXcom instead. That one's mainly quality of life features. However, I'll play Brutal Doom instead of the origin Doom. For text adventure games, I'll use an …

Re: Windows 3.1 Must Have Software -

in Windows
VB DOS was essentially a cross between VB1 and QB45. The syntax was essentially based on QBasic language. Sophisticated programs like STS+ had been compiled with VB DOS, too, so it really wasn't bad. VB DOS can be used to compile existing* QB projects, as well. It's essentially an updated …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

Outside the case, the tension of the spring holds the connector at an angle to the board. In this state, the drive worked perfectly. When inside its case, the connector is pulled down, and the leg marked in red was disconnecting from the pad (insufficient solder?). Being a USB3.0 data pin, this …
