Re: Yamaha SW1000XG

TSG wrote on 2021-09-17, 22:47: I need RCA jacks. The only two sound cards I've seen with them is the AWE64 Gold and the Yamaha SG1000XG which you just said is MIDI only. What do you need them for that a quality shielded 1/8" to RCA cable won't give you?

Re: What do you think about Steam Deck handheld PC ?

"locked in" meaning that you can't really upgrade anything (aside from storage), which is a large part of the appeal of PC gaming, considering how quickly it changes relative to consoles . I guess we'll see how well AMD has scaled their CPU and custom GPU, given their past mobile offerings. How is …

Re: What do you think about Steam Deck handheld PC ?

I'm of the opinion, let's wait and see. You're shoehorning a full fledged x86 CPU into a small form factor, it's expensive, the base storage is paltry and slow, and you're running windows games on an abstracted layer in linux (but at least they're on a rolling release dist now). How is a portable …

What about, instead of transparent screens built into normal prescription glasses, instead we could have just a pair of non-transparent screens that can clip on to your head, like a VR headset but with none of the bulk, hopefully? These could cover the eyes of people who don't wear glasses, and …

Re: Post covid price drop

in Milliways
I don't see the prices coming down anytime soon. With inflation they probably will continue to increase. There is a limited supply of inventory that's not going to increase. It's possible there might be a slight drop once the free money that's floating around is spent, but the sellers are unlikely …

Re: CH/FCS/Sidewinder compatible DOS games?

If you get a Thrustmaster setup that supports FCS any game can be made to work with the extra controls. They will present themselves as a two-axis one-button joystick, so you have the normal x/y with a trigger. All of the other buttons, hats, etc are mappable to keyboard input in profile files you …

Re: video card for athlon 64 build

What games are you looking to play up to? The 750 ti is a great power-efficient card that can run most XP-era games maxed. But one thing to be concerned with is driver overhead. An Athlon X2 isn't exactly a powerhouse. And drivers for later video cards have many more features, but your old CPU has …

Bed/couch might be more comfortable, though at this size I would guess still not actually comfortable anyway. I found the 3DS XL tiring because of the weight and ergonomics, this thing will be worse. Ergonomics will be better than 3DS and Vita for some people. I have issues with those handhelds in …

Nor me. But if there is a computer involved, then unforeseen problems are always a possibility. Plus we don't know what DRM might be incorporated in future games, and any sort of Windows updates, if the Steam Deck will need and apply them, might accidentally cause problems such as knocking out the …

Re: Is Vista now Retro

It's not that every Windows version needs completely new drivers. There is compatibility across versions, subject to various factors. In theory, even Windows 2000 and XP drivers (not graphics drivers though) "should" work on Windows 10, as long as the platform (x86, x64) matches. In theory maybe, …
