Great work VOGONS! Only had to switch to the old skool color scheme though - too used to it by now and btw it could also use some extra detailing to be even closer to the old skool cool 😀 Shoot me PM if you would want my help with that.

Re: R. Loew's GeForce 7800 512MB VBios patch

I have recently installed it on my 7950GT (512MB) and it seems to work fine so far. Have you tried the Option ROM Disable Patch which is included in the package? OPTION ROM PATCH 1. Boot to DOS or Safe Mode. Normal Mode probably will not work. 2. If in Safe Mode, open a DOS Box. 3. Go to the WINDOWS …

"Fuck off Windows 10, don't you dare update now. No no no no no, I haven't saved my work and my deadline is in 10 minutes. Nooooooo..." You forgot this one: "Fuck off Windows 7/8, don't you dare install Windows 10 when I go get a cup of tea." Source: https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2016/mar/ …

Re: CRT TV / Monitor repair

in Milliways
The new cable looks similar to what I have and it is just fine, never felt the need to buy one of those overly expensive "pro" VGA cables (or BNC if applicable). Adding your own female VGA port would be a very good idea, making it more future-proof, even if it would just dangle instead of being …

Re: CRT TV / Monitor repair

Yeah, most people forgot how dim CRT monitors were. The spec for them is around 90-110cd/m2 on full-white signal which you can measure with a colorimeter (DTP-94 is cheap and good enough). You can overdrive it to around 150cd/m2 on some monitors but it will be a bit blurry with less accurate colors. …

Re: Steam could be a cult via Vendor Lock-In

Just walk away OP, you can do it! There is plenty of DRM-free games if you look around and you will (probably) get to keep playing the Steam games you have already purchased. Requiring Steam account just to run single-player of Half Life 2 in 2004 was a bold move indeed. Nobody really knew what we …

Is that true? Heh, your avatar and that question together makes it seem like you are the one behind it :) Phone number lists can be targeted just like online advertising. Depends on what you are trying to sell, sometimes you really need a targeted list of specific class of people otherwise it will …

Re: PCIE Graphics Card

7x drivers the earlier one, are probably the best bet, nothing lower than 6x drivers are going to work as serpent rider said those are the earlyest ones that are agp/pci-e bridge aware. I was able to get 2001se to run on the card and finish but then something happened and on the 1st test 2001se car …

Re: Final Fantasy VII Remake gameplay - full demo walkthrough

Is it? I remember following Bear McCreary's blog where he was trying to get score recorded for Battlestar Gallactica, and it came down to him and others putting up the money to pay the musicians because the studio was running out of budget. Heh, that is a nice inside story, loved the music there …

https://youtu.be/osEEQLSE6ng?t=257 He walks like he is on a lunch break or something :lol: It is important to accept that any remake will never have the same charm as the original. So being too different isnt all that bad I think, it gives you other reasons to buy it. It does look very good, …
