Re: Is Vista now Retro

I can run vista drivers on 7 It's not that every Windows version needs completely new drivers. There is compatibility across versions, subject to various factors. In theory, even Windows 2000 and XP drivers (not graphics drivers though) "should" work on Windows 10, as long as the platform (x86, x64 …

Re: Problem with resolution 320x200 (Hexen)

PAL TVs definitely had scanlines, you probably just weren't thinking about it. Obviously 288p scanlines are thinner than 240p scanlines. Except that the phosphor matrix (I don't know the proper name) usually didn't look like this RGB RGB RGB RGB RGB RGB RGB RGB RGB RGB RGB RGB (which could give …

... and they should ditch 32-bit support. You mean ditching 32-bit version of Windows 11, right? Removing support for 32-bit application on a 64-bit system would be a very bad idea. No one needs to run Windows 11 on a Pentium 4. I run 32-bit Windows 10 on a Core 2 Quad for better compatibility with …

I don't like the new taskbar with centered icons. I really hope it will be possible to tweak it to more resemble the taskbar of Windows 95 thru Vista, as can be done in Windows 7-10.

Re: "...not a valid win32 application"

in DOS
There is one argument for using 32-bit Windows even if a 64-bit version would work on a given machine: better compatibility with older games, ie. fewer problems to solve.

Re: "...not a valid win32 application"

in DOS
PAE is a ""nice"" """solution""", but useless if applications don't use it. Very few of them do. It's not useless. I'm typing this post on a 8 GB machine with 32-bit Windows 10, PAE patched. And yes, it works. Although a single 32-bit process is limited to 4 GB address space, the system itself can …

Re: System Right for Old Windows Games?

in Windows
TRAOD runs super smooth with maxed out settings (anisotropic filtering and what not) in 1600x1200 on my Q9550 + HD7850, 32-bit version of Windows 10. So... I don't think you need to slow down your system. Be sure to have the latest patch installed, which is I believe build 52.

Re: what are your favourite ps/2 mice?

I've been using Genius NetScroll 220 Laser mice for more than 10 years now. This is the second one I have now, the first one I destroyed in a rage if I remember correctly... The main problem when it comes to longevity is the scroll rubber, which after (very long) time gets loose and at some point …

Re: Problem with resolution 320x200 (Hexen)

I didn't say PC CRTs didn't have visible scanlines at all. I said that didn't have that visible scanlines, as he can't remember how CRTs look like, any scanline footage he's seen is probably from 240p consoles and as you mentioned computer games output 400p at minimum which has significantly …
