Re: Would you be interested in an x86-based alternative to the Raspberry Pi, optimized for retro gaming?

If he could make it cheaper than $60 bucks, then maybe he had a plan. Expensive or affordable is subjective to one's value perception, too. Or perhaps the OP's real life is a Saudi prince whose family has controlling stake in GlobalFoundry and all he needs is to keep a couple samples for himself for …

Re: Blood II: The Chosen

What's the newest, beefiest graphics card that will play Blood II correctly, and why? If you had RTX2070 or even better, then the game just work. I have Geforce GT 730 and the game just rocks and it rocks equally on Ryzen APU/Vega Graphics laptop. If you wish to know more, then request mods to move …

Re: PCem v17

As of writing this post, the canonical GitHub repo at https://github.com/sarah-walker-pcem/pcem still exists. That was a pretty strong language, wasn't it? Or am I getting old & rusty in my command of English language? Oh, please, this is not episodes of novel or popular franchised of Sci-Fi …

Re: Boxedwine (Wine on multiple platforms)

in PC Emulation
I have the same problem with QEMU on M1. Wine strategy of OffscreenRendering is to use FBO. That didn't seem to work on macOS. I would have thought that to be XQuartz/OpenGL 2.1 issue as I guess you had a better OpenGL context instantiation from NSWindow/CocoaGL. You should try changing …

Re: Leak of Windows 11

in Milliways
Removing support for 32-bit application on a 64-bit system would be a very bad idea. They could definitely do it on next major updates after Windows 11. They could also unify how 32-bit application was handled as in current Windows 10 ARM. I believe Windows 10 ARM employs dynarec/JIT for 32-bit x86 …

Re: Leak of Windows 11

... and they should ditch 32-bit support. No one needs to run Windows 11 on a Pentium 4. I think they will. They will ditch 32-bit CPUs but retain 32-bit software compatibility. The whole UI just looks downright classy and more... I dunno, GPU accelerated ? Just look at how smooth the transition is …

Re: Leak of Windows 11

It is a good time to start to learn to use VMs to play games ... bravo ;) They may not offer enough performance for semi-modern games, games that are originally qualified & approved for XP+, but here at VOGONS we are enthusiasts of "Very Old Games" anyway. ;) Perhaps GPU pass-through could be …

Re: Leak of Windows 11

in Milliways
It really does not make a whole lot of point these days by comparing the OS memory footprint and make up which one is more or less "bloat". We have been out of DOS eras for a long, long time and DOS is about to be really killed. If the OS will show its memory in used, then it is just stats. Linux …

Re: Leak of Windows 11

in Milliways
If you want Windows not to break, then just use a VM ;) I would say that it is common sense, perhaps not for everyone, that software involving kernel-mode or user-mode drivers are going to be delicate and risk of Operating System internal changes. VMware or Intel HAXM could break, too, but it is …

Re: Moderator violating Community Standards

in Milliways
Just want to add here that we are aware of this thread and it's being discussed in the mod section. So I will just skip sending private message to with the link to the post to all moderators. I will also give up rewriting the deleted posts from my memory. I think the essence of the deleted posts …

Re: Moderator violating Community Standards

in Milliways
I do think the OP would have been better to: 1..Sort his problem out in private with mods 2..STOP turning every thread into a qemu fest (even this one) 3..STOP bringing up pcem in his threads when its obviously a decent platform for many people 4..STOP being an attention seeker 5..Grow up. Very …
