I would say that modern games have too much "noise" in them. Before 2000 there were so many hardware limitations and levels consisted of only what was necessary. They built the gameplay and atmosphere with the bare minimum. Those games are actually much more comfortable to play, because when you …

I was thinking of buying a 1440p monitor, but since GPU prices are ridiculous now, I can't buy a GPU to run it.

Re: dgVoodoo 2.7.x and related WIP versions

Sorry for being inactive here. Unfortunately, due to other IRL activities, I have minimal time I can spend on dgVoodoo and related things. :( Don't worry about it. You alone, in your free time, already did more for old PC games than what Microsoft did for Xbox backwards compatibility with all their …

Meanwhile all main cryptos took serious nosedive after Elon Musk's comments and Bank of China statements. This includes Chia. You know what is good about Chinese communists ? They embraced capitalism, but the difference is, since they are communists, they study capitalism from the basis that it …

How about we start using acorns as currency ? Instead of buying computer components and wasting electricity on virtual money, people plant trees which clean up the air and slow down climate change. As stupid as it sounds, it is not worse than what we have now.

You'd be surprised how little you have to spend on computers when you don't do any gaming. I'm still using a Core 2 Quad Q9550 with 8 GB RAM and a Sapphire HD 6850, bought it in 2008. I wouldn't be surprised at all. Single core is dead, but a good old dual core and even just 4 GB is still perfectly …

Well, I didn't mean "brand new" as "brand new from store". New motherboard and CPU is a new computer in …

How often do you buy a brand new computer ?

in Milliways
I got my first computer in late 1999. It was a Pentium 2 with 32 MB RAM. It was outdated before it left the store. I had zero experience with computers back then and never even opened it, not to mention upgrade it. It was such a major disappointment, that I even stopped playing video games. I got my …
