Re: What made you join VOGONS?

I came here primarily to muse about old hardware and software, and look for and share fixes for older games. I still remember one of my early posts was about how Fury³ and Hellbender's sound sampling rate were hardcoded in the EXE, so you'd have to hex edit a few bytes to get 22050 to work.

Re: Ultimate Music Tracker Base

project is terminated to permanent g ban. Hope you've catched the moment. You should probably demand a valid reason why they terminated your hosted site. I also recommend, if you've been keeping backups locally yourself, to setup a self-host if you're not behind a ISP that blocks TCP port 80 …

Re: Ancient DOS Games Webshow

As such, this has absolutely become the best way to play Daggerfall, not just because of its features but for a whole slew of reasons! Yeah, especially hilarious that they directly use the heightmap data because it was almost entirely disregarded in the original FALL.EXE "due to bugs". If you apply …

Re: What game are you playing now?

So I'm returning to the playthrough I started of Unreal. I gotta say though, Quake 2 has far more playable level design over Unreal. Just tries too hard to be pretty or believably designed. The AI sure is better in Unreal though... but I'm not sure I really enjoy it after an 8 hour work day, …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I've been playing (and sometimes streaming live) System Shock using the Shockolate source port I recently heard about. So far it's great, but using classic controls is a hassle because there's strangely no button to re-centre the view...

Re: Options you change in games

In Unreal and UT99 I set GameSpeed to 0.909091 to negate DeathMatch's "Hardcore" mode changing the GameSpeed by 10%. Because 0.909091 * 0.1 = 1.0 in terms of the floating point precision Unreal Engine 1 uses. I also set Difficulty to "4" (otherwise known ingame as "Adept") because it's the only …

Re: Let's talk about our hated trends

I gave multiplayer more than a fair chance, between the original CounterStrike, CS:GO, MineCraft, and Team Fortress 2. I almost always sucked terribly and always felt like there was one or more cheaters EVERY TIME I played. Seemingly impossible kills, same players with jaw-dropping kill ratios …

Re: UT2004 - No surround sound Windows 10

in Windows
Look in UT2004's System folder for something like "DefOpenAL32.dll" Try renaming OpenAL Soft's library DLL (not it's wrapper) to said "DefOpenAL32" and replace the file in the System folder, then tell UT2004 to use "System default", and it should load the DLL from System instead of talking to the …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback Wheel How's that thing holding up? I can imagine that thing must be fairly old... I still have a Microsoft Sidewinder joystick somewhere unless my Father threw it away to the "electronic waste recycler"... I've been wanting to get these old joysticks going again …

Re: sonicMayhem vinyl quake 2 album

There's a monkey's paw in asking for that. Like when Quake recently had a vinyl release, there's been contentIDs hitting many old videos and streamers. Same for when Sonic Mayhem rereleasing Quake3 Noize digitally earlier. Yeah I ended up deleting my Quake streams off of YouTube since then. Because …
