Re: Table Fog & 8-bit Paletted Textures

Another good place to check for paletted texture support is Quake2. The skyboxes will show the difference mainly, so if you have 8-bit textures ENABLED and the sky still looks smooth (and not banded in visibly low amounts of colors), then paletted textures aren't working. :) The only RGB textures …

Re: Table Fog & 8-bit Paletted Textures

My Vogons wiki credentials have just been approved, so I've created this page for games which use table fog, based on the findings from this thread: https://www.vogonswiki.com/index.php/List_of_games_with_Table_Fog_support Note: a separate page for games which use paletted textures already exists …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Finished Max Payne. Combat really did get tedious in the last third of the game. Some of the more difficult encounters required way too many reloads for my taste. Basically, if I timed everything perfectly, Max would survive the fight without a single scratch. But if I'd miss even once, Max would …

Re: What game are you playing now?

The difficulty gets annoying at some point, enemies get super senses and incredible accuracy. It gets to a point where the enemies behind a corner, who haven't noticed you yet, fire their weapons at the exact moment you start a shoot dodge behind the corner where they still cannot see you and hit …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Continuing my Max Payne playthrough. The music in this game is subtle, but very fitting. The main menu theme is especially memorable, and I do recall it from way back when I first played this. Interestingly, the game appears to use some form of positional audio and has full 5.1 speaker support. For …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Currently replaying the original Max Payne. I think I've only played it once, back when it first came out, and my PC at the time wasn't the greatest. Now, I'm running it fully maxed out (except for AA and AF) on my Athlon64 rig. I don't remember much about the game, aside from the Matrix-like slow …

Re: Spur of the moment build.

Re: I miss the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s

I miss the simplicity of gaming in the mid to late 90s. You would go to a physical store, buy a game CD, put it on your PC (or PlayStation) and it would just work. No mandatory firmware updates, no enormous day 1 patches to download, no hiding half of the game's content behind season passes and no " …
