Re: These aren't the results you're looking for

Oh wow, what a blast from the past. Pretty sure that was the laptop I was sent off to college with in 2002. When the Doom 3 tech demo was leaked, I made a valiant attempt to play it on that thing. More on topic, I found scattered benchmarks actually putting a Geforce 440 Go in the 5000 range in …

Re: What is your unconscious motive for retro hardware ?

in Milliways
I only recently started getting into actual retro hardware. Although for a long time I was attempting, with increasing difficulty, to keep my array of sentimental video games in a playable state on my primary, modern PC. Dosbox, dgVoodoo2, occasionally a virtual machine or PCem in the worst case …

So I've fired up Dungeon Keeper 2 again. I remember playing an ARRR'ed copy back in college, but I clearly vastly misremembered when and on what hardware. I thought I had played it on the laptop I was sent off to college with, which had an unremarkable mobile CPU and a mobile Geforce 2 MX. This was …

So I finally beat Doom 3! Trophy Screen 20210319_Doom_3.jpg All in all, I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. It got off to a slow start, but wowed me to this day with it's lighting model and level design. Once the action got underway in Alpha Labs I was having a good time, even if the jump …

Might And Magic VI: The Mandate Of Heaven . About 20 years ago, this was THE game that made me install it on 4 different computers and always have the latest savegame with me on a floppy disk, wherever I went. It took me MONTHS to beat it. A week ago I mentioned this title in another forum, got a …

Re: Did you create maps for games?

in Milliways
I once made kind of a jokey map for Quake 3. Had two main loops that criss crossed, and a rail gun in kind of a dead corner I wanted people vulnerable in. During this time I was going to LAN parties every weekend, and we got up to the sorts of antics a bunch of teenage boys do. One guy was …

Well, after some issues with my graphics card, I successfully saddled up in Doom 3 again. Just wrapped up the Hell level. Midway through it, Doom 3 began hard locking the system in a specific room with a berserker powerup. To add insult to injury, if I quicksaved immediately before the room, Doom 3 …

Re: Geforce 6800 GT output suddenly corrupted

So I think, I'm going to try to reflow the solder with a heatgun this weekend as my last attempt to get this card back. Mostly the VRAM area. Sounds about my skill level I'm sad to say. Fingers crossed. Don't reflow anything with the paint strippers. Get your self a proper hot air station. " …

Geforce 6800 GT output suddenly corrupted

So I'm playing Doom 3 last night on an Athlon 64/Geforce 6800 GT rig I built in Dec. I've made it all the way up to Delta Labs 3, and extremely suddenly while I'm listening to a PDA log, the display corrupts with a patterned distortion, and then the computer hard locks. I restart, and things look …

With Doom 3, Carmack was all about bringing the next generation of lighting improvements, to take the envisioned game's immersion to all-new levels not yet achieved anywhere else. An attitude seen many year earlier with Quake II. In both cases, he absolutely succeeded. Back at the time of original …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Speaking of Doom 3, I'm still slowly making my way through it. I'm continually astounded how much the jump scares, monster closets, teleporting behind you, darkness and screen shaking just take a toll on me. I beat Delta Labs Level 2 today... and the last time I played was 2 weeks ago. Took me that …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I’ve been meaning to return to Ultima VI since March of last year. I beat it back when it launched, but have just gotten stuck/lost on my recent play through. I’ve thought about looking at a hint, but I have such a hard time with that idea. On the one hand it feels like I’m cheating myself, but on …
