Re: Game box cover art vs in-game graphics

in Milliways
the one embossed box i have in my collection belongs to the north american version of daikatana, and perhaps a little ironic that it's one of the prettiest. so detailed! I once bought the game as a gift to a friend. That was in its most crappy 1.0 state. 😂 And it was the European version, so not …

This was well thought 😀 didn't expect this lengthy answer! Thanks. ;) The turrets are a mistake, it's impossible to have such devices. That was handy but not realistic. Tell me about it. The protagonist can only carry 3 weapons at a time (makes for some interesting choices), but a portable gun the …

I found the expansions enjoyable. I like the FEAR franchise, but 4 isn't coming any time soon. 3 was ok, but too console like for my likings. Finally finished F.E.A.R. (replayed the base game to refresh my memory) and both expansions - Extraction Point (last month) and Perseus Mandate (yesterday), …

Repo Man11 wrote on 2022-12-07, 00:44: I love the computers in Half-Life 2. That appears to be a real Slot 1 motherboard, upside down, with no CPU installed. F.E.A.R. (or maybe just the expansions?) had DELL XPS systems.

Re: Windows XP how many people still use for it their MAIN OS?

I am still using it, because "ClearType" makes my eyes hurt and causes me headaches. Interestingly, it's not just me - if I google "ClearType" together with eyes hurt or headaches there are many complains but most of them circa 2005-2007. I guess people no longer have big CRTs like 20+ inches to …

But even there, Quake 2 seems largely overlooked as an inspiration. Doom, Duke3d and Quake 1 dominate the gameplay vocabulary. Quake 2 is a pretty mediocre shooter. Sure it was all nice and shiny with 3D colored lighting when it came out, but in terms of gameplay, it's worse than Doom, Duke3D and …

Re: Windows XP how much people still use for MAIN OS?

Windows 7 32 bit does anything XP does, with the added bonus of still being officially supported. Didn't support end in January 2020? It did, but there are Extended Security Updates (ESU) still going (will end finally in January 2023). These are officially only for customers who have purchased an …

Re: Windows XP how much people still use for MAIN OS?

I haven't done much in the Windows command line, but I don't think it comes close to the tools that are included by default in the various Linux distros. Commands like cut, rev, sed, awk, etc., are all very powerful. I use find and grep extensively. For example, suppose that you have a hard drive …

Re: Retro Rig Photo Thread

Nice! 3 keyboards, 3 different layouts. The one on the top left is the best one; too bad it's non-standard so almost impossible to find. What do you mean with "non-standard"? :) That it is not one of the standardized layouts listed, e.g., here . Hence, very few manufacturers produce keyboards with …
