Re: 3dmark99 MegaThread

Aebtdom, that's intersting to see your result in comparison to mine (few posts up) with similar systems and clock speeds. I guess the 400mhz bus may be the advantage for my machine. I don't think the L2 or RAM would make as much of a difference.

Re: Table Fog & 8-bit Paletted Textures

I'm using it with Dx 8.2 myself, but don't have much time to play with it. I do think there's value in "aligning" drivers and such. For example, I have an Asus VGA Driver CD v305 from 2003 which contains driver 44.03, DirectX 9 and VIA drivers (relevant to me) 4.45. It's reasonable to assume that …

Re: Table Fog & 8-bit Paletted Textures

UPDATE: So, I've made some progress. I've now tried updating DirectX from version 8.1 to 9.0C, and this actually improved things considerably (but the issue is still not completely fixed)! With DirectX 8.1 and driver version 45.23, I was NEVER able to finish a race (the keyboard would stop …

Re: Table Fog & 8-bit Paletted Textures

You guys are a hoot. If you don't like the progress, then why use modern internet and not just dialup? Why use a modern PC at all? Which person here said they don't like "progress?" You are hallucinating. I think a lot is getting lost in translation here. I see this thread as funny ("you guys are a …

Re: When PC became soulless for you?

You can say everything from not having to assign IRQs to UEFI to Windows activation has made PC lose it's essence. I think it's a matter of preference. I'm a progressive person so all my machines have just as much "soul" to me as another. Modern machines having less of that is a rather technophobic …

Re: Cars now have micro-transactions!

This shit ain't new, see OnStar.... If my wife locks her keys in her 2014 Impala, she has to sub to OnStar. There is no physical key hole in the doors and another fob will not operate the car if it's locked with it running from another fob. I'm not sure I'll ever buy another GM product. My RAM at …
