Re: QEMU 3Dfx Glide Pass-Through

Now I get this when I try to play a Grand Prix 3 game with WineD3D 1.8.6 The above output was without "export SDL_VIDEODRIVER=x11", this one was with it. I really really would like to know wtf is wrong, since the dev is capable of playing it on his M1, but I'm not.

Re: Making WineD3D on Windows for Win32

How to apply the mentioned patch on first post? Well it says to use git, so wouldn't that be just something like "git apply /path/to/patch.txt"? (yes can be done with a text editor too, but that gets old real quick...) Btw Bruno, I got your pm about WineD3D a bit late and then couldn't even reply …

Re: Best OS for Ibook G4?

OS 9 is still a pretty capable OS nowadays for light tasks. It all depends of what you really want to do with your iBook. I'm a big fan of OS 9 and I have found some use for it recently. I want it to make gaming machine or modern OS for surfing net and stuff. If this is your goal then Leopard seems …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

Currently upgrading the MacBook Late 2008 to Snow Leopard via a USB flash drive (don't have any Dual-Layer DVD-Rs at the moment) from the Leopard 10.5.8 installation. In case something goes wrong, I can factory restore it back to the Leopard OS (thankfully, the SuperDrive works). I’m just curious, …

Re: 2000,XP,Vista and Windows Update

Good to see it being documented. I had a PITA updating XP for several times I tried to make a VM last year. Now I think I have a fully updated XP and 98 VMs. My first thought was to go with 2000 Pro, but it needed a kernel extender like BWC to be able to use some newer stuff, like a better firefox …

Re: QEMU 3Dfx Glide Pass-Through

Anyone know why with NBA Live 98 when I try to run glide it starts in small screen (like 800x600 windowed) but the whole image is bigger than the qemu window? like, qemu window is tiny, but game resolution is bigger? I can only see a small part of the images... I had to turn off glide and run …

Re: YOUR favorate game era.

Most of my friends are more concerned about graphics realism than game physics, storyline or whatever. "Oh look even the grass is moving with the wind on track". That's nice, but when Codemasters F1 game is all about graphics but zero simulation physics, tyre grip and so on, this is not a good …

Re: List the PC games that you have beaten

in Milliways
I did beat Spycraft: The Great Game, however, I don't remember if I have seen all the possible final scenarios. I did see at least three possible endings. I've also beat Max Payne, Sam & Max Hit The Road, The Dig, Full Throttle, Grand prix 1,2 and 3 (Championship Season mode). I've never reached the …

I'm also almost 40. I used to play racing games and paint some skins for cars and open wheel formulas with Paint (GP2/GP3) and Photoshop (GP4 onwards). I didn't had to pay for it, I painted them all by myself, downloaded car sets for each season because it was a great community sharing its work to …

Re: YOUR favorate game era.

It used to be the case, but moving back to them today, performance is a non-issue. If you don't care about real hardware, just about any PC can run games maxed out up until about 2006-2008 and entry level gaming rigs about 2015-2016. That's what moving back to old games means. Yes, exactly my point …

Re: YOUR favorate game era.

Best era IMO was 97-2002. I have been playing games since I was 6 yrs old, something like 1988 until today. I haven't been doing a proper gaming since 2012, though. Modern AAA games require too much power, constant hardware upgrading and $$$, so I moved to my old games. I no longer want to upgrade a …
