Re: High Quallity KVM?

I actually just recently put 2 computers behind a TRENDnet 2-Port PS2 KVM Switch I got off Amazon. Looks like that model is sold out, but the 4 port is still available. I believe they aren't being manufactured anymore? I don't notice any signal degradation. But my setup, before I revamped everything …

Re: Rebuilding my 2004 Doom 3 Machine

Well the 2x1 GB DDR400 Kingston sticks showed up today. Alas, one of them seems totally dead. Plopped both in, only had 1 GB of ram. Took out the second one, system still posted with 1 GB. So then I took out the working one, and tried the other with all 3 RAM slots. Nada. Well, adding the working 1 …

Re: What game are you playing now?

So I finally finished Unreal on my K6-2+ 500, Geforce 2 MX 400 pc. Framerate was probably between 20-30 the whole time, with some serious stuttering during some of the more intense "the whole level is exploding" moments. Which is better than the first time I played it! I believe in 1998 I chugged …

I'm having a heck of a time beating the last big battle in Half-Life 2 Episode 2. The one where you defend the base against the waves of Striders. I've tried and failed at least 3 times and each go takes a good 10-15 minutes. So far I'm almost 9 hours into this add-on. I know I'll get it eventually …

Re: Intel smashes Ryzen

in Milliways
@mockingbird: AMD has some severe ups and downs. I was extremely happy with my Athlon XP and Athlon 64 back in the day. But their Phenom processors shit the bed so horribly, I didn't even think about AMD as a purchasing option until the goodwill towards the Ryzen 3's became too overwhelming to …

Re: Rebuilding my 2004 Doom 3 Machine

@pshipkov So that motherboard box is actually storing a Shuttle HOT 591P. It needs recapping pretty badly. I was using it for a while before I replaced it with a PC Partner MVP3 board. The box is only out because I needed something to get the drives closer to the graphics card! I only have one …

Rebuilding my 2004 Doom 3 Machine

In the summer of 2004, I was very excited about Doom 3 coming out.  Dare I say, it was my Cyberpunk 2077.  Summer of 2004 was also my first college internship, which put some real money in my pocket for the first time in my entire life.  So goodbye hand me down parts!  Goodbye sketchy computer show …

Re: Athlon 64 3400+ Build

A lot of 2004/2005 Athlon 64 & Geforce 6800 builds lately! Well, this and one other by henk717. I just finished mine. Well "finished". Still a few nagging issues. The decision between going Socket 939 and PCI-E, or Socket 754 and AGP was the most difficult part for me. At the time, the system I …

Re: What game are you playing now?

So I wrapped up Syndicate (1993). I was underwhelmed. I beat the Atlantic Accelerator mission with 10 missions left, and the final mission I actually did was an... ugh... escort mission in South America. I'm fighting the urge to try all the games at once, and actually finish one. So I'm returning to …

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

in Milliways
I confess there are tons of really popular games ranging from cult-following to outright huge-commercial-success, which I never cared about, and in some cases never bothered to even look at. To name a few things that never really grabbed me : Entire classes of FPS like most of Quake, Halo, …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Luck and attention span willing, I'll be finishing Syndicate (1993) tomorrow. Did the Atlantic Accelerator mission, but now I'm dreading an escort mission in South America. The last one I did was pretty frustrating because the VIP kept walking directly into enemy agents, or walking over the dead …

Re: Getting current or recent games working in the future

in Windows
I strongly suspect the 2010's will be a lost decade for games. For starters you have the fact that most of them have Games as a Service components. So when the servers go down, so too do the games. Next you have that lots of games are only published to Steam, and have effectively zero version …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I remember getting into college arguements about the merits of HL2 when it came out. I thought the gameplay was strictly worse than the original. That the physics puzzles were gimmicky, the array of enemies and weaponry less varied, and the supply of ammo for the weapons you did have was far more …
