Re: What game are you playing now?

Every so often, the Monolith devs open up their archives and throw out stuff from the Shogo dev days. The game would have been a certified masterpiece, if it hadn't been rushed to market and ended up getting steam-rolled by Half-Life. Had it cooked a bit longer and released with Windows XP's …

Re: Intel has BIG plans.

I don’t know if they still do but Intel use to manufacture CPU’s for Nvidia and they also manufactured the CPU for HP the Itanium. Intel never fab'd anything CPU-related for Nvidia, as they are competitors. Nvidia has always relied on Asian fabs. TSMC has been making Nvidia GPUs from the beginning …

Re: Are Acer fanboys a thing?

I'm an Acer fanboy in that I've liked their designs, however I don't own one or any of their products. Their Revo One media PC was a great design that was far ahead of it's time, but the commonly available components at the time it was available ensured that it was a dud and they didn't sell many, …

Re: MIDI Thru box

I'd love to see a DreamBlaster external USB audio box, with MIDI I/O and an internal Waveblaster header for the X2GS (or whatever) board. With PCI slots being gone from new boards, the only alternative for MIDI is external boxes and consolidation always makes things easier.

Re: VOGONS github

Here's the github for the abandoned vstmidi driver that many of us want to use, but can't get to load properly. From the look of things, the repo hasn't been touched in years, so I can't say the code is close to the last version of the driver that mudlord put out. I don't know if there's anything …

Re: Games with 3D acceleration and Midi music?

Yeah, there were certainly some, like EverQuest. Not many overall, in Murica though. Good MIDI hardware just wasn't widespread outside of Asian markets, where the hardware modules were readily available. Technically, DirectMusic (component of DirectX) utilized MIDI, but so much is unknown about how …

Re: Palit GTX460, why such high prices?

GPU prices are just haywire right now. That's why the price offerings are so high and somewhat random. When Intel starts pooping out their new GPUs, things might stabilize and prices could decrease, as their cards should be solid for gaming and productivity, reducing demand for Nvidia and AMD GPUs. …

Re: TERRIBLE NEWS!

Denuvo was canned from some major games because of performance/stability issues with games that are played with high-end hardware - making the issue even worse on lower hardware - and because it relies on Denuvo servers to be running 24/7, which has been an issue itself, due to the servers going …

Re: Anyone Have A Yamaha XG MU100 Soundfont?

There are no soundfonts that can replicate XG effects. But there is a softsynth made by Yamaha that emulates a MU50 which is close to the MU100: https://veg.by/en/projects/syxg50/ http://www.jaybmusic.net/Downloads/SYXG_VSTi.zip That has both the XG50 and the XG2006 VSTi plug-ins, which cover XG/XG …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I'm testing the latest beta release of Daggerfall Unity, which has some changes to the rendering engine. It's quite buggy, so I am encountering many problems with gameplay, which is odd considering that the changes to the code in this line of beta releases are for rendering. Later today, I will …
