Re: Share your paranoia!

in Milliways
Sure, there's more accurate N64 emulators that know what a frame buffer is and gets far closer to 99% (Ares, Mupen64plus both have ParaLLEi-RDP). There's also less risk of being mandela effect'd of emulator inaccuracies and glitches (if you're exclusively playing those games emulated for the first …

Share your paranoia!

in Milliways
Ok, everyone here is more or less paranoid with thing like pedantism, period-correct obsession etc. so what are yours extremes ? I simply cannot play games on overpowered hardware. I'm used to squeeze 100% of hardware I own and it's just like another side of the coin... Brain goes that: 'what's the …

Re: Voodoo 5 emulation

in PC Emulation
86box dev crossed the hypothetical endline for 86box development... it includes V5! https://www.reddit.com/r/86box/comments/tiz7kp/we_get_a_lot_of_questions_about_why_dont_you/ If someone were to put in the effort to cross 86Box into that era, it would just have a very slow Pentium III and a very …

When PC became soulless for you?

in Milliways
Back in the day, in 90's, Amiga 'elitists' considered IBM compatibiles inferior machines that lacked soul. Here, in Poland, they even called PC 'clones' and their users 'clonards'. I didn't understand such concepts but it changed once I felt myself similar thing at some point. For me, it's started …

Re: Most advanced game to run on Voodoo 5

More advanced games would probably be a fillrate-hungry GTA3 game or UT2003/2004, which still wouldn't be feature complete as a Geforce2 or even a Kyro and have visual issues... As youtube material prooves, those games runs kinda ok on V5. After doing some research I've found that someone manage to …

Re: Most advanced game to run on Voodoo 5

As an aside (from voodoo being not so great beyond about 2000) i'm impressed you stayed with 200mmx for a decade :) what years were they? I'm sure a P200mmx has more power than generally thought of but interesting if you got it working fine with early 2000's internet and games etc 1998 - 2008, 32 …

Early Linux gaming

Ok, I've switch to Linux in 2015 and even then, I was blown away that so many games were running great via Wine (some of them even better than on modern Windows) and by now things still improved significantly thanks to Proton. Question is - how was it back in the day? I mean, starting with early-mid …

Re: Best OS for Ibook G4?

I'v been testing a lot of different OS and have finally chosen the winner. MorphOS - it hurts it's not free and licencing fee is too hight but it's blazing fast & and lean, light on resources and last time I checked it I underestimated its gaming capalitiblies. With Yamagi Quake 2, Mame and modern …

Re: DOSBox-X branch

I cannot run 3dfx-patched version of Blood 1 on DosBox-X. I applied patch with no error, put glide2x.ovl in the game's directory and all I get is 'Fatal Error' - unable to load DLL'. Can anybody make a short, step by step tutorial how to setup Dosbox-X for this game?
