Re: Sin Benchmarks

It sounds like you might be in software mode? I tested this on a Voodoo 2, a Voodoo 5, a radeon 9800 pro, and an NVidia 780ti, and managed to get it working and playable on each. There's something else going on.

Re: Gatekeeping in the retro hobby

In some way or another, we're as vintage or obsolete as the systems in our hobby. ;) So maybe, as the years go by, our level of "compatibility" to the outside world is affected, too? 🤷‍♂️ As an observer, it seems to me as if people/users had been changed in personality over the last ~17 years. Back …

Re: Sin Benchmarks

I just played this with all my machines. The only one that showed any slowdowns outside was the Xeon 3230 when running with a Voodoo 2 card (800x600). With settings set to the Standard High with 3d acceleration there was slowdown outside but more like in the 20 FPS range than 10. I don't know if …

Re: What game are you playing now?

New games on average are more competently made than old games. The gap between playability was much larger in the old times. This is mainly due to shared engines and design conformity. Personally I like the old days where everyone wrote their own engine, it was more interesting. Also I don't give a …

Re: Sin Benchmarks

What commands are you running to benchmark Sin? Without knowing your settings I played the first mission of Sin with the following: Athlon XP 1800+ 512MB Ram Voodoo 5 5500 AGP I ran it at 1024x768 in 3dfx opengl mode and its seemed like it was constantly hitting 75FPS which is the max refresh of the …

Re: Windows 98SE on Vmware with 4k resolution

From that reddit: "[–]Hurricane_32i7-8750H | GTX 1050Ti | 16 GB RAM 2 points 6 years ago* It does by installing VmWare Tools on the guest (you can see it running in the bottom right of the taskbar). It allows you to do things like, resizing the VM window changes the guest resolution to match it, and …

Re: What game are you playing now?

A Plague Tale : Innocence This is an Action Puzzle game with minor stealth mechanics. The majority of the game 85% is spent learning all the weapons and strategies slowly like a walkthrough, once you are set free in more open arenas it becomes less puzzle and more action game. The story is …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Biomutant Picked this one up on a whim, it's got a lot to dislike. The narrator is annoying and he speaks for all the characters. The open world is largely pointless traversal. The combat is mediocre, once you learn a couple combos you are pretty much good to go. I liked the graphics, and I liked …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Amid Evil Completed Today. I've been tying up a lot of loose ends. Surreal Quake throwback style shooter. Abstract enemies and levels the further along you go. Sometimes the levels seem more like gimmicks than design but it's still fun. Thumbs Up.

Re: What game are you playing now?

Gears 5 Just finished this one this morning. It's what you would expect with a small open world hub in a couple different areas. I guess this is what the kids are calling a "boomer shooter" which makes no sense cause I'm Gen X and can tell you I never knew any boomers that played video games, …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Cyberpunk 2077 I finally finished this one last night, bought it at release and apparently I got about 2 hours from the end of the official storyline before it sat unplayed for a long time. You can probably guess I don't have the greatest things to say about this. Most of the time I was confused as …
