Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
I used a mouse and keyboard and didn't notice any issues with the controls. For reference, I played the GOG version on the Athlon64 system from my signature. No special tweaks or anything. Thanks for the reply. Maybe I'm going crazy, but I swear the mouse feels slightly busted in that game every …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Hey Joseph_Joestar, Did you play Sands of Time with a controller or M/KB? I only ask because I've tried playing this game multiple times on different systems over the years and have always found the mouse handling in this game to be terrible no matter what mouse I used. It's like the game doesn't …

Re: Table Fog & 8-bit Paletted Textures

I'd love to see some benchmark comparisons with these games. Some quick and dirty benchmarks if you are still interested. Unfortunately the FX series card I had was only a 5600, not the Ultra as I had originally thought. Basic system specs: Win98SE, DX8.1, Nvidia drivers 45.23 CPU: Pentium 4 (641) …

Re: YOUR favorate game era.

This might be cheating but probably the ten year period of 1996-2005. Quake and Tomb Raider were major obsessions, especially once I got my first 3DFX card. I probably spent more time making maps and levels for Duke Nukem 3D, StarCraft and Warcraft III than playing the damn games. The initial wave …

Re: Table Fog & 8-bit Paletted Textures

I haven't done any serious benchmarking before. I've only used Fraps to monitor a few games as I switched out parts until I got the performance I wanted. I can certainly run some benchmarks though. It just might take me a few days to set up everything and run them.

Re: Table Fog & 8-bit Paletted Textures

My experience with the FX series is limited. I've only used an FX5600 Ultra but even it was weak compared to a true Geforce 4 ti (4400 in my case). Games from 2000 or older ran pretty much the same, but stuff from 2002 like NOLF2 ran at half the frame rate, dipping into the low 20s on the first …

Re: YMF7X4 on ICH5/865PE; should I?

in DOS
I have the Cobra YMF744 II as well and was able to get DDMA working for my on my 865G chipset mainboard (ICH5), unless I'm completely misunderstanding what DDMA is. Using the ICH5 modified drivers I could get SB Pro compatibility without calling the DSDMA TSR, but my DMA had to be set to "0" for it …

Re: Your oldest favorite computer game?

in Milliways
Stunts (1990). There is something about games that come with editors (an awesome track editor in this case) that tickles my fancy. My mate introduced me to this one in early high school and I was hooked immediately. We made tons of tracks and swapped them back and forth. Good times...
