Re: I miss the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s

Re: Market value for popular or rare classic computer hardware

Thus I look forward to abovedude giving away his house, car, and other possessions, on principle.... Ha indeed. And abovedude apparently has all of the hardware he could ever need because of his awesome cleverness at getting into the hobby 50 years ago so doesn't need to pay the absurd contemporary …

Re: Market value for popular or rare classic computer hardware

...so there's little point coming into such an explicitly named thread and going all roll-eye-y over others rants and quibbles. Containing all such guff in the one thread is the whole point. Good natured discussion around prices and rarity is fun - prices really have gone up a lot in recent years. …

Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
You have to find gold to ride a ferry, and to get gold you need to convert lead into gold. There's a couple of fishermen anchored in a river, and your first thought is to try converting their anchor into gold (maybe it's made of lead). Nope. The solution ends up being to give them cheese to catch …

Re: What do you drive?

The only excuse is when you have a lot of things to buy that you can't carry home. I've been stupid enough to make that mistake a few times. A wheeled shopping basket gets around that somewhat - old school. +1 for walking or hopping on a pushbike, so much easier than driving or public transport. I …

Re: Ultima VII Frame Limiter Patch

in Milliways
@ptrie I'm assuming that the 'togglable' setting is not persistent in any way? It didn't seem to be despite saving my game. I wanted to use the hack version that included the frame limiter and the other patches so I've just hex edited this file to have a frame limit setting of 10 by default: …

ptrie wrote on 2022-05-16, 15:13: Just so there's no confusion, for anyone going the hex edit route, a value of 10 (decimal) will show as 0A in the editor. Entering 10 (hex) in the editor will result in unbearably slow gameplay. Yes sorry about that, not well written instructions!

Re: Is a Roland SC-55 Okay or do I need a MT-32 ?

Another misconception exposed - the MT-32 was actually very well supported. Next I'd like to see some statistics around how many …

Re: DOOM with ray-tracing

The Serpent Rider wrote on 2022-04-20, 02:37: Doom lighting model was too simplistic. Which is why a flashlight is included, and it's an awesome addition! If the author can fix a few remaining annoyances then this will be my preferred way to play DOOM going forward.
