Re: FastDoom 0.4. A new Doom port for DOS, optimized to be as fast as possible for 386/486 personal computers!

New development video (FastDoom 0.5) https://youtu.be/khVLctBY1GA Curious, why the "age restriction"? There's plenty of videos of Doom that don't have that stretching as far back as 2007... That option makes it impossible to watch the video anonymously without a user account involved which is what …

Re: Vogons Video Announcement Thread

What a great mod! I had not enough because mod is too short Yeah it is a pretty short campaign, but "Quality over Quantity" rules the day here. Considering how the mod itself ends, it does leave room for a sequel but I'm not the devs (or a HL1 modder for that matter) so I'm not quite sure how …

Re: Vogons Video Announcement Thread

I'm messing around with the training level now, actually impressed with how well it seems to run. I also hope you can read the subtitles good enough, the entire mod is Russian with English strings and on most videos the subtitles and text uses a very small font that looks as if it was made for …

Re: Vogons Video Announcement Thread

I ran across Paranoia when I was looking for Half-life mods a while ago, but somehow missed that it had a Dreamcast port - looks pretty cool. I haven't played it at all yet. A word of caution, it's a very difficult mod that doesn't play completely identical to Half-Life's gameplay. There's a …

Re: Vogons Video Announcement Thread

digging into a long-lost collection of Dreamcast homebrew, ON REAL HARDWARE I was too depressed and tired to have noticed the stream, I don't suppose you ever tried running Paranoia on your Dreamcast have you? It's not as advanced as running on PC due to the PC using a custom OpenGL32.dll file to …

Re: Vogons Video Announcement Thread

So you want a Gravis Ultrasound? https://youtu.be/c4S71ONxpOk I'm curious, could you test this clone card with some of Unreal's soundtrack running inside of the last official release of Impulse Tracker? You might need a lot of RAM available on the card though. There's also "Tyra" from Operation: Na …

Re: Technological critique

Nah, .NET 1.1 and 2.0 had ANSI (that means Windows 98SE and later compatible) runtimes variants available. It's not distributed by Microsoft anymore, but DOTNETFX20 can still be found. I'll keep this in mind, I rather not make a full Windows XP VM and make a Windows 98 one instead, since that way I …

Re: Technological critique

Seems to use C++/CLI along with .NET 1.1. Damn, that's the oldest possible version indeed. No LINQ, no generics. Only the "good", old, rusty Micorosft Java C# 1.0. Another pain point is the MS's managed extensions to C++ which is C++/CLI. It was ported to .NET Core, but it's still Windows-only. …

Re: Technological critique

Can you share this tool ? Is it open-source ? .NET core runs under Linux and the 90% of the Framework API was ported to it, so ditching the Windows dependency is a real possibility. The website for it long since died, you'll have to search for "Nem's Terrain Builder" yourself unfortunately. It's …

Re: Coil whine - fact or myth?

AT&T's NVG599 they force us to use to even have DSL service has massive coil whine during bootup, and also during ADSL2+ signal training. (For a moment I thought I was hearing WiFi signals) The thing also gets very hot, atleast from what I can feel holding my hand above it.

Re: Technological critique

If you don't understand the need for managed programming environments, and think everything should be C/C++, then you are hopelessly stuck in the past. I guess I'll remain hopelessly stuck in the past then, have had nothing but constant trouble with anything C# and .NET related. A tool I need to …

Re: Technological critique

Legacy .NET programs are close to impossible for me to try to run under Linux as well. Why *exactly* was it necessary to come up with .NET in the first place...? What exactly was it "solving"? Why can't people just stick with something with portability like C (and to some lesser extent C++)?

Re: Technological critique

Thanks, but that's a console application. ... what? None of that tutorial even talks about console applications. The "Getting started" section even explicitly states: Make sure you have specified a Win32 GUI (NOT "Console") project/makefile/target, whatever applies to your compiler. Everything done …

Re: Technological critique

Without MFC, how do I define the dialog that I create? You don't actually need MFC to do any dialog editing. MFC is just a "easy mode" to raw WinAPI resources. I basically followed this tutorial though it's quite a mouthful. You basically have to manually define everything, alot of which has to …
