Re: Prey and Metro Exodus released on GOG without Denuvo

in Milliways
Prey Interface Customizer doesn't work. I'm guessing it's only a matter of time though. And there's already a preview release. Finally a DRM free, up to date version of Prey with support for skipping that dumb second loading screen (Prey Interface Customizer has a lot of other great stuff too of …

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

in Windows
The GOG version requires at least Windows 7 and is presumably using dgVoodoo. https://www.gog.com/game/star_wars_jedi_knight_dark_forces_ii This is partially false. The installer requires a modern version of Windows, but the actual game will run on Windows 95/98 just fine. Also it doesn't use …

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

in Windows
I've never used Windows 10, but I have a moral objection to the spyware and the forced updates. I'd like to get a newer, faster system with Windows 7 Windows 7 has "spyware" too, from launch and a lot more included with updates. If you have a moral objection to it, you should be using Linux. …

Re: dgVoodoo 2.6.x and related WIP versions

Dege: Hydro Thunder, another game included in Midway Arcade Treasures Deluxe just crashes with dgVoodoo. Maybe interesting?: [6400] [dgVoodoo] WARNING: Direct3DSurface9 (04221CD0)::Lock: D3DLOCK_DISCARD flag is specified for a non-discardable (non-dynamic) surface. [6400] [dgVoodoo] ERROR: …

Re: What are the last "Windows 7" games?

in Milliways
Yup. 2007 the year of widescreen LCDs, Vista and Steam. Basically the start of our now modern era. Bioshock came out in 2007 and I'll keep that on my XP install with EAX tyvm. Also Stalker SoC google search has "windows 10 (solved) or windows 10 fixes" ... if there's anything to fix it's because …

Re: Heavy Gear 2

in Windows
You should post in the dgVoodoo forum: https://www.vogons.org/viewforum.php?f=59 And also include instructions how to set up the game (if special instructions are needed) and how to skip to that level. I doubt anyone's going to play 14 levels of Heavy Gear 2 to help you. Try disabling resolution …

Re: What are the last "Windows 7" games?

in Milliways
I can't think of a single game that runs better on Windows 7 than Windows 10 and I really can't think of any meaningful metric of how a game would be "designed for Windows 7". I would just go with the last game released before Windows 8 hit.

Re: Doom Eternal Released

TechieDude wrote on 2020-05-20, 20:17: Shit? How is that so? Not offended at all, just curious. Not sure I believe you. Why are you curious about my opinion specifically? You can just Google and find plenty of reasons people dislike Brutal Doom. Just assume it's some of them.

Re: Doom Eternal Released

What's wrong with Brutal Doom? Everything, but nothing you're unaware of. Let me guess, it's not 'tEh oRiG1nAl' and it's 'tOo viOlEnT', despite the fact Doom is meant to be violent. And for the record, I LOVE Brutal Doom. Sure, it's not authentic, but it's more hardcore, and I think it inspired …

Re: Battle Engine Aquila "extra graphical features" ?

in Windows
The readme says: On some configurations some options will be restricted or not available at all. For example, the "extra graphical features" will only be selectable on the very latest graphics hardware. Your card is like two generations old. Obviously it won't work. More seriously, open cardid.txt, …

Re: Bought this (Modern) hardware today

in Milliways
Bought a few new HDDs, because well: aaa.png This thing is obviously not reliable. Despite showing no other signs of failure. Not sure what I want to do with it. It would be a shame to throw away a working drive but I can't think of anything I want to rely on it for. In addition my WD20SPZX failed …
