Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
Oh, me? I'm about to play one of my favorite arcade games from back in the day, Virtual-On: Cyber Troopers . In fact...IMG_0171.png I just got a cheerful pair of Win98 PCs all networked up for some two-player action! Short of owning the 2-player cabinet, this is probably as good as home Cyber …

Re: Quake III Arena Benchmark Thread

262 fps with P4 3 ghz and geforce 6600 agp 256MB. Sound on, and using the graphics settings recommended on page 1. It's more than fast enough to be playable, but I keep thinking it should be 100 fps faster, based on results I see on this thread and even the K6 Quake 2 and 3 thread.

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

I've got another one! I am probably the world's biggest Dell fanboy. No, Dell didn't start the IBM clone business. They didn't out-junior the PCjr with their own custom sound and graphics modes.

Re: Is anyone excited for Big Navi?

in Milliways
I just bought a 1660 for my old i7-4700, but it's more of a stopgap solution since I got it cheap (OB) and just needed something faster than onboard gfx. The plain RX 6800 looks great, faster than an RTX 3070 and cheaper. Maybe they'll be in stock next year when I build my new computer!
