Re: Bought these games today

in Milliways
Black on Red was problematic for uncracked copies at the time. Another game that did this was Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, IIRC it had the grail diary painted black over red or something. I think it only works on b&w copies which was the norm back then, but you could still as easily get …

Re: What's in your toolkit?

in Milliways
I see lots of items similar to this on Amazon and Ebay: PCI & ISA Tester Motherboard Anaylzer Card Are they worth the money or toolkit space or effort to decipher the broken English? Well, yes and no. I've had mixed results as some of the error codes change from boot to boot. Also the "code book" …

Spotting stress corrosion cracking, flow accelerated corrosion, intergranular stress cracking, galvanic corrosion, etc is all 2nd nature to me since I look for it daily. It isn't like I would get a better inspection at a dealer or inspection service center -- they only hire people that barely slept …

Re: What do you drive?

in Milliways
I do all that myself.. I don't need the government to force me. And corrosion/rust is common, as we salt the roads in the winter. You can't find a car older than 1 year without rust on the undercarriage. It's not about forcing anything, just a safety issue. And it's not like we have some two-party …

Found these at the local flea market (didn't buy any). Too bad they are all budget titles or they would've been gone a long time ago.

Re: PSU recommendation?

EVGA would be "the" choice, but I use Corsair and OCZ on my XP/Win7 rigs and they seem to work just fine. Be aware that there are some quality issues with some of the models, so check before you buy. Some info can be find here: http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/P … ewDatabase.html

Re: What do you drive?

Currently, my fuel gauge is broken (sticks at the full marker and the sensor is broken) and hasn't worked in 3 years, ABS is also worn out (ABS module and wheel hub are bad), foot brake/parking brake doesn't work (needs adjusting after I replaced the rotors and pads a year ago), broke a stud on the …

Re: "hidden gems" games 1999 to 2007

Operation Flashpoint ,I don't like this game at all, and I've never gotten far in it, since it's too realistic to be fun, but it was massively popular with some gamers. Fun fact, in the first version(s) of the game you are basically invisible if you keep crawling. You can finish some very tough …

For adventures check out Runaway: A Road Adventure (2001). It's a Monkeyesque(!?) style game with really nice graphics. Only problem it has a few pixel hunting problems that'll drive you mad, but other than that, a solid game.

Re: What do you drive?

[ Why *sighs*? That sounds like a good choice for many people. If it does what you need then who cares what other people think. I can only speak for myself, but most of us drive cars that aren't even close to what we actually want to drive. In many cases a small hatchback will do just fine and any …
