Re: Cursor size on Vogons

It was a problem with DPI scaling on Windows for a while and I remember Edge browser (the original one) not supporting cursor scaling properly. Those should all be things of the past now. Do you have any DPI scaling active? The cursor comes from these styles applied to various elements: @media …

Re: Most disappointing games?

Stalker - Call of Pripyat. It was so bland that I couldn't even finish it. I like the game. It's very slow-paced but the exploration of desolate buildings is my cup of tea. The only thing that's obvious is that they planned vehicles and were never able to finish them. The maps feel way too big to …

Re: Most disappointing games?

lowenz wrote on 2023-01-22, 13:20: Pariah? Tried that a while ago. This game is pure jank. Bad gameplay, atrocious level design, story written like a fanfiction from a 12-year old... I don't get why it was hyped up so much back in the day.

Re: Integrate drivers into Win98 se CD

in Windows
The drivers probably came from here originally: https://msfn.org/board/topic/163405-slipstreamable-intel-chipset-inf-drivers/ That thread also has installation instructions: How do I use these INF's? Unzip them and place them in the same directory as your Windows 98SE CAB files prior to installation …

Re: First Ever "Magic Smoke" Experience

It's been many years, I had a P3B-F motherboard back when it was still state of the start. It was running a little hot so I decked out my case with 3-4 fans and populated all of the fan headers with those. The board did not like that. It smoked heavily, all of the fans stopped and yet, it still …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Dragon Age: Inquisition This is not a good game in the slightest -it's a really bad game because the world is way too big and ambitious. I am 45 hours in now and I'm starting to get "open world burnout". The only thing that keeps me going is the main story and my companions. When I look at CDPR's …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Dragon Age: Origins I tried this game a year ago and failed miserably. Back then I played the Steam version of it, which doesn't have any controller support. I also chose the human noble/warrior path which resulted in tedious hack and slash and numerous deaths. It was terrible and I hated the game …

Re: Windows XP how much people still use for MAIN OS?

PowerShell is indeed very powerful in terms of accessing internal OS objects (and has some advantages - is that it actually treats some things as objects and not just string) - but its syntax is beyond horrible. It's so verbose, my brain actively fights me when I try using it. Last time I had to …

Re: Hardware you wish you'd never bought.

Multiple IBM Thinkpad A31p machines. I find these fascinating, since you can put a 2.6GHz Pentium 4 in them and they come with a sexy 1600x1200 IPS panel and great Windows 98SE + DOS drivers (including SoundBlaster support). Every single one I bought had problems from the start or developed them …

Re: Games don't feel as exciting as they used to

PS3 emulation is still demanding and there are still games with issues. But is that really a problem? PS3 Super Slims are very reliable and cheap, you can easily get one. And they're very moddable, so you don't even have to buy the games. Stick a 2TB drive in there, fill it up and you'll have …

Re: Do movies suck these days?

As for modern movies, My biggest problem with them is the overuse of CGI. I often find it difficult to get immersed in such movies. Same with me. I like to watch Horror movies with a good friend and currently we're going through the classics. "The Thing" from 1982 is just so damn creepy due to its …
