Re: Do you dislike the British?

in Milliways
Nowadays, the usual behavior I see from people in more developed nations is to simply pretend we are all equal and having discussions like that always bring the same old "Let it go, man! It was in the past" or "Stop complaining and do something" kind of argument. In other words, discussing and …

Re: Do you dislike the British?

I will explain it more simple then. People are living in the past, blaming people what previous generations have done. You can put every issue under that umbrella. For you it may be in the past, but for a lot of people it is still the present being affected. We are not responsible for the past …

Re: Do you dislike the British?

Like... People who are blaming other people, what anceators and long gone people have done in the past, are low intelligent people. I dont blame Germans today, what happened in the 1930's and 1940's. I dont blame Japanese people for pearl harbour. And I sure do not blame everyone in my country, if …

Re: PC gaming magazines with full games

in Milliways
Thanks for all the replies. It seems to me that in some countries those magazines were intended to be not just for promoting games, but as a channel for selling games as well. What I mean is, the magazine was an extra that came with the game and not the other way around, and most of the time the …

Re: 8k

Unless it is for very specific cases, 8K is not worth it for the consumer market, in my opinion, even 4k is overkill in most situations. We are getting to a point where the advantages of having larger resolutions are getting less and less noticeable while processing power to fully use them …

Re: PC gaming magazines with full games

in Milliways
IIRC certain German gaming magazines had covermount full releases. I believe images of those CDs were even taken down from archive.org, including (IIRC) cover CDs of PC Games (German) (this might've been at the magazine publisher's request, not sure). Which is a shame because those CDs have a lot …

Re: PC gaming magazines with full games

in Milliways
Are you thinking they wouldn't be? You should still be able to find a bunch of those CDs, complete with games, on archive.org. (Like a lot of other stuff on archive.org, the legality of their redistribution is questionable.) Also I expect a lot of those magazines that were published in Brazil had …

PC gaming magazines with full games

in Milliways
Hey everyone, Lately I've been checking some pictures of PC game magazines on the internet (like PC Gamer), and noticed that every CD that came with the magazine (at least the ones I could find) only had shareware or freeware titles included in the disc. That made me a bit curious, because here in …

Re: Allure of retro computing

in Milliways
At first, it was to run older games that could not run well on modern machines, but this is becoming less and less of a problem thanks to DOSBOX and PCEm for the early Win 95 stuff. Now it's mostly for the nostalgia factor, just to remember and feel how the games actually ran when I first played …

Re: Moderator violating Community Standards

While I understand your point, I would like to add that QEMU can use other accelerators, like TCG with JIT when KVM or the hypervisor is not available. It can even use TGI without JIT (slower than TCG) but still fast enough for most stuff, so I think that QEMU's future is pretty much safe for years …

Re: Moderator violating Community Standards

Wouldn't that also due to one's conspiracy theorized delusions for being nice or jerk? I am fine with your quote and you just proved that it can be done in just 1 minute. I hope the Moderator would do the same since he once said he could do it, too. It is OK if you do not feel the need to prove …

Re: Moderator violating Community Standards

in Milliways
Alright, I will just say please show how great PCem run on M1 or help the project in achieving this goal. Well, I remember at one time, someone suggested DOSBox-X for Win98 games and I said "Without dynamic core, you must be kidding, just stick to DOSBox SVN". The DOSBox-X now has dynamic core …

Re: Moderator violating Community Standards

in Milliways
Since you mentioned PCem, then I will say that PCem is always a joke , even for this over 20 years old game. You could probably try software rendering, but when 3D acceleration comes into picture, PCem's branded "freaking fast" fake 3Dfx voodoo software recompiler is an utter trash . I don't have …

Re: PCem v17

Exactly my feeling here. I feel sorry for her and that she had to tolerate some assholes with no proper grasp on life, or even important things that makes a life live for. But to say "fuck all of this", it's a bit of an overkill. Wants to close the forum or the community to avoid dealing with such …

Re: PCem v17

For any open-source projects, "merge request" is a courtesy from the contributor. If they don't meet the standard practice of the project, then it is fair to say that it can simply be rejected, on any ground or even without any reasons. So if the contributor happens to be "not-so-happy" about this, …
