Re: Stadia shutting down

in Milliways
Never used streaming services. It even further takes away the illusion of actually owning the software I bought (no data files to tinker with on device I own).

Re: Doom 3 Performance & Quality Issues

in Windows
Not sure where else to ask, but I've always wondered Why do automatic weapons (smg, chaingun, plasma rifle) in the game fire like this: TaTaTaTaTa! TaTaTaTaTa! Ta! TaTa! Ta! TaTaTaTaTa! instead of TaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTaTa! Anything to do with the tickrate?

Motherf**kers cancelled me for being a customer in specific country under current situation. Thought I'd just use different payment method (friend's PayPal, which will work), but I can't even update my shipping (and even registration) address (even to different country!) unless they consider it's no …

in Windows
Geez, I thought someone died. Turns out some ancient DRM won't work?That's good news to me so far. Also for some reason when GPT/uEFI was invented, people didn't really miss opportunity to use older Windows properly anymore. That'd be more "terrible news".

i3(Haswell or similar) nettop for running old games

in Windows
Thinking of getting a device similar to this: https://www.gigabyte.com/Mini-PcBarebone/GB-BXi7H-4500-rev-10/sp#sp to connect to TV and play some old games on Win10 (Steam/GOG) using wireless keyboard/mouse. Has anyone got any experience in using one of these for older games? Think NOLF, Starcraft, …
