Re: Huge "zoom out" games list

in Milliways
I updated Abuse SDL port in 2016 to do that: The fun thing is that the original releases of Abuse (prior to v2.0) also had the same feature with resolutions of at least up to 1280x1024 supported. This was eventually only reserved for the level editor, but earlier versions' readme files even contain …

Re: Technomage dgvoodoo 2 problem

in Windows
1) If it's a dgVoodoo problem you should post in the dgVoodoo forum: dgVoodoo General 2) If it's a dgVoodoo problem, you should search for the game name in the dgVoodoo forum: search.php?keywords=technomage&fid%5B%5D=59

Re: Problematic Windows games list

in Windows
I was referring to if you wanted to run the game without fan patches (or the Steam version). Just saying that it is possible. There's been fan patches to make the game use alternative music files forever, and they've also been buggy forever. I'm hoping they've finally fixed it in the latest (Reunion …

Re: How do you clean your LCD monitors?

in Milliways
I have no idea how you have that dirty monitors, what are you doing to them? For the most part I just need to wipe off dust from them. If I need to clean them, I use some dedicated LCD cleaning kit, sure there's more expensive options, but it's still only 20$ for something that should last you years …

I had no problems running Discworld Noir . You were lucky, Discword Noir was always known as very difficult to run on modern systems and net is full of complicated setups like this: https://blog.ihobo.com/2015/02/how-to-run-discworld-noir.html Then finally Loma's fix solved that as is mentioned …

Re: Half-Life WON 1.0.1.6 Pause Menu Issue

in Windows
xash3d's that illegal source port that unfortunately gets smartypantsed around as blind 'this update fixes hl' advice... Yeah, I read about that and that's one of the reasons I'm not using it. It also doesn't support my version anyways. That it's illegal? I think I've heard there's some other …

Re: Some guys opinion about DOSBox

in Milliways
Trying to autoconfigure based on filename/hash would be a never ending battle, as you can configure most games to use a whole bunch of different settings, and the frontend won't know what the user has configured just by the hash of the executable file alone. It could only be for strict …

Re: Problematic Windows games list

in Windows
I had no problems running Discworld Noir (if there was an XP patch it was so easy to find I don't remember it being a notable obstacle) except for LAV filters crashing the game. There's quite a bit of games that crash if you have external video filters installed, so really recommend against that ( …

Re: Midnight Outlaw Six Hours To Sun Up

Play this game with any virtual videocard other than the default internal and it renders fine. The reason is that if all types of vertex elements are reported as supported (like with the internal card) then the game drives D3D9 improperly for some reason. Oh, sorry, my mistake. I guess since it was …

Re: Half-Life WON 1.0.1.6 Pause Menu Issue

in Windows
Last time I tried Xash3D it had an annoying audio stutter in loading screens and UI elements were flickering (I think it's because of a Nvidia bug that also seems to affect Cave Story+). It has had plenty of updates since then, but I think it was like half a year ago and left the impression that …

Re: Some guys opinion about DOSBox

in Milliways
But is there a way to make Dosbox or any other Dos emulator more like a one click console emulator? It's useful to make a GUI for settings. Today people are not addopted to text files and command lines. Also with "Run the game" dialog. When it recongnizes the known game (by the filenames) - it …

Re: Problematic Windows games list

in Windows
There are windows compatibility modes you can set for those games, you don't need to change the global DPI setting (which tends to move/resize windows, which is annoying). It's very common. Not really "problematic", unless you the problematic games list to include most games. GZDoom doesn't need it …

You were just complaining about kids and their damn phones and now you're posting full size gifs as replies to conversations. You should decide if you want to sound like a 15 year old or a 75 year old. https://1389blog.com/pix/clapping-emoticon-medium-size.gif I'm sorry, I hope this is small enough …

Re: Some guys opinion about DOSBox

in Milliways
I understood you well, my take is that people who are unfamiliar will still have the hurdle of "there is a bunch of files what do I do with them?" "open an exe? there are three of them" "there is no exe!" (com) "it doesn't work!" (because it needs to be started from a batch file which sets up …
