Re: Most disappointing games?

in Milliways
I tried several times to play Half-Life 1 but found it so painfully boring that I couldn't ever play it for more than a half hour to an hour at most. I found HL2 equally boring, but played it further because of the novelty of the graphics. But I quickly got bored of that game as well. I never found …

Re: Compaq armada 1750

Ive been slowly upgrading mine, just recently got a PII400 CPU for it along with a new battery, Keyboard and a LS-120 Super Drive, not sure if I can upgrade the screen but I figure the 800x600 14 inch version is more than enough for a DOS box. Have also sourced the super rare DvD module for it too …

I'm just waking up, and brain currently thinks it's soldered to motherboard. In one or other of these 1750 threads there's a service manual link I think. Yeah you are right. I didn't know about those easy-to-solder batteries at the time, so I just stuck the wires to it with electrical tape. Has …

Re: Games don't feel as exciting as they used to

I think games are generally better today, if you see to the general gamer. But for us (former) enthusiasts it's just kind of bland if you look at big titles. Gamers used to be a small sub culture, and there was a constant evolution making the more interesting. Games were not that perfect and thee …

Is this that thread again ? Yes! As that TS I'd like to notify everyone that I'm the original grumpy middle aged guy! Personally I was (and am) going through a stage when I try to accept that my love of gaming is not what it used to be. (But I'm pretty sure it's not only me.) There are a lot of …

Re: 50 pin IDE to sata

Hey I just found that I have this connector in one of my parts bins - I was looking for a regular 44-pin IDE cable and this was in the box too. I think it came from a junk lot ages ago but had none of the rest of this computer so I couldn't identify it. It looks like it fits your laptop though: …

Re: I miss the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s

in Milliways
The 1970s will have a special place in my heart. :) Yes, I was born in 1975, so it means I was still four years old during the last of the 1970s era (1979, right?), but pop culture seems to move slower in Third-World countries including mine, so bell bottoms and disco music were things you still …

Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
I've recently put my pcs to rest and bought a SNES which I enjoy enormously. At the moment I'm playing donkey Kong country 1 and it's awesome. I'm a bit disappointed neither of my two old 1280x1024 displays works with my OSSC though, not sure if there is s setting or if I need to get yet an other …

Re: Compaq Prolinea

Hello, sorry to revive an irrelevant thread, but I cannot yet post new threads. I have a Compaq Prolinea 486/33 and I wish to add a CDROM drive but I need the special Compaq drive rails. I was wondering if anybody has the measurements & dimensions for these rails and can share as I want to attempt …
