Re: Windows 7 file association help needed...

in Milliways
Nothing is out of the blue. In this case it sounds like the speech program has linked itself to 2007 , but maybe an update, maybe she did something without realising it. She swears that she didn't do anything different to cause this to happen. You can try reinstalling 2003 (not just a repair) over …

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

in Windows
Have you looked into the oldest driver supported by your card? No. I really didn't want to mess with the drivers if it could be avoided. You should be able to get the game working on this type of hardware and OS. Use an older driver version and try the compatible tweaks mentioned in that PCGaming …

Re: Windows 7 file association help needed...

I believe it does have special provisions. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1200880 Yes, I guess I was mistaken about that. I'm just saying, if only the association for .DOC was changed, and it so happens she's trying to open a .DOCX (or something else like a .DOCM), then of course that …

Re: Windows 7 file association help needed...

Issue here is you are enabling bad security. If someone has an issue with the interface on newer versions of Office then they should use OpenOffice, not stick with the old versions of Office. She's set in her ways and prefers to stick with what she's comfortable with. She also has a quite extensive …

Windows 7 file association help needed...

in Milliways
Windows 7 file association help needed... I'm trying to help someone solve a file association problem on Windows 7. We live in different countries (USA, Canada) so I can't just go over to her home and sit down in front of the system. I don't have Windows 7, so I don't have any experience with …

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

in Windows
This was being discussed in another thread recently. It appears that something broke in nVidia's drivers somewhere along the way. Perhaps you saw that thread already? No, I haven't. I actually don't spend much time here any more. I think the new forum looks horrible and on the older browsers that I …

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

in Windows
The game only makes use of D3D, so installing a Glide wrapper will not do the trick. Dgvoodoo2 should work, as long as you are using it as a D3D wrapper. Oh, I was under the impression that you could tell it to use 3DFX. Unfortunately, I have an old system and can't use that wrapper. I found some …

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

in Windows
A while back, I installed Jedi Knight and was completely unable to get hardware acceleration to work. I tried every patch I could find (that worked on my old system) and nothing worked. As soon as I enable hardware mode, the graphics are completely scrambled. Just now, I got the idea to see if I …

Re: New forum suggestions/Feedback

in Milliways
I'm sure it's pointless to post this as I'm sure I'll be told that I'm the only person that this applies to, but I figured I might as well make it known... I have an older system that can only run older versions of browsers. I'm using Pale Moon 26.5 and every page on this site now takes an …

Re: Last night I dreamt

in Milliways
Unfortunately I forget my dreams, even the crazy ones, within moments of waking up, however I do remember one particularly notable one: Real-life Warcraft III I've found that moving or even just opening my eyes upon waking up makes the memory of the dream fade faster. I have better luck remembering …

Installer for Dark Forces (DOSBox) (Download link fixed!)

in DOS
A while back, I created a self-contained installation of Dark Forces that used the Daum SVN DOSBox for the save states, GlovePIE to give fake mouselook and OverlayXHair to put a crosshair on the screen. When the subject of Dark Forces came up on another forum, I went back to my copy, streamlined it, …

Re: Poll: most annoying game controls

in Milliways
Vertical auto-aim is rather useful in Doom, which has no ability to look up/down. Horizontal auto-aim has a bigger potential to get in the way of things. I understand that the vertical auto-aim in Doom was pretty much required as Doom had no method for looking or aiming up and down. Maybe other …

Re: Last night I dreamt

in Milliways
I do have a recurring theme in some of my dreams though; I'm in a store (sometimes a hobby shop, sometimes a department store) and they have every plastic model kit that I've ever wanted. Not just real ones that I never got, but kits of all the things I wish existed, like every spaceship from every …

Re: Poll: most annoying game controls

in Milliways
I think it comes down to you preferring a control scheme that uses fewer buttons, and achieves special functions through combinations of buttons, whereas the trend is using more buttons and a dedicated one per function, when possible. The problem is that too many developers see all the buttons on a …

Re: Last night I dreamt

in Milliways
I can't recall ever dreaming about computers or video games either, even though I love both. I do have a recurring theme in some of my dreams though; I'm in a store (sometimes a hobby shop, sometimes a department store) and they have every plastic model kit that I've ever wanted. Not just real ones …

Re: FYI: Steam drops XP/Vista in 2019

in Milliways
Yea, but Steam goes a step further. For example, my copy of Half Life used to play fine on my Pentium Pro with Windows 98. But when I install it now, the first thing Steam does is download the latest version, which is not compatible with Windows 98. So I can't get the game working anymore. I have …
