Re: Intel has BIG plans.

You are so drunk on Western propaganda, it is sad to read what you just wrote. China is Taiwan's biggest export market, people go to work there, etc. People in West are fed propaganda daily and USA wants you to be scared of CCP because united China and Taiwan would create a country that is more …

Re: How over powered are modern PCs?

in Milliways
Interesting topic. I've often had similar thoughts about computing power vs code optimization. That ratio seemed closer together in the early days of x86 and even systems like the Comodore 64. Isn't assembly still the most efficient language? Inagine a company that codes for modern hardware in only …

fallout 3 is good, at least it has lots to do. whatever criticisms i may have are minor compared to the wealth of things to do in the game and i'll admit i prefer it overall to fallout 1/2

Re: Are Acer fanboys a thing?

in Milliways
the idea of 'fanboy' type adoration of a company that makes things always strikes me as real strange, a sort of misplaced tribal tendency to hero worship or something, maybe a feeling of being part of a winning set of people (through the amazing collaborative act of .... buying something !) but some …

Re: most difficult game

in Milliways
if by manual you mean things with hard controls (QWOP!) and total twitch games then we can miss lots off the list also, presumably anything with bugs that break gameplay so that leaves all kinds of games none of which are the hardest, but all of whom can exist in the set of games that are really …

Re: GTA Trilogy - The Definitive Edition is not very good

in Milliways
as with most remakes, hd editions, 'enhanced' re-releases etc they are not really worth it, beyond the convenience of playing on whatever new platform they go with even when they are done well if nothing much new is added then it soon becomes the same game again, but with discernible leaves no the …

Re: How over powered are modern PCs?

in Milliways
i have always enjoyed the advertising for low end machines - "suitable for basic tasks like browsing and word processing" this is "true" of a pentium, a celeron, a duron etc etc all the way up a quad core now browsing is far more demanding than other 'basic tasks' too and today's 'basic tasks' …

Re: What phone do you use currently?

in Milliways
are phones generally and cell phones specifically subject to collectors and users like old PCs, I'd imagine so - we think pc tech moves fast, phones in the last 15 years have been changing faster still

Re: one unit whole blood spawn error fix

in DOS
is the gog version ms dos via dosbox or is it some port? having fixed the sound it seems you still have some dependancy missing - maybe gog forums contain a similar question? otherwise, if you continue to have problems, it'll almost certainly work on your modern system with whatever launcher gog …

This is why I'm continuing to play Kingdom Come Deliverance 50 hours after I beat the game. giant boots.png giant skull.png chest in middle of nowhere.png Just exploring large forests, looking for treasure and weird stuff now. I do feel like I'm nearing the end of my journey, though. Over 200 hours …

Re: Visitor frequency down?

in Milliways
I find the parts I visit frequently to be somewhat less busy. Is this me or are there less posts than usual? Maybe I'm loosing interest. Let me know ;) we'd need stats over the last few years to see what's actually happening with new accounts set up number of logins number of new posts number of …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I am trying to get through the original version of Mafia. I thought it would be fun to play the original after having played the definitive edition. In some ways I like the original better. and in some ways I like the new version. The main thing that surprised me was how good the graphics actually …

Re: If you could only have two builds to span…

in Milliways
Interesting to see some people picking builds that can cover as much as possible in that period and others picking their two most nostalgic builds. I dislike emulators and setmul and prefer building period-correct but in this case and with limited builds, I think it covers my favourite time periods …
