Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
I just picked up a tranquilizer gun. What? When the fans talk about the cerebral bore in Turok 2, they were right. :upside_down: I've now made it past level 2. I've only fired the Tranquilizer gun once just to see if an enemy would explode after being anesthetized; it didn't (missed opportunity by …

Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
Begun playing Turok 2, remastered version. I never finished playing the original when it was first released, and now I remember why: The levels are too big, too monotonous, and there’s too many switches to activate, thus contributing to boredom and a feeling of lack of progress. I’m probably 1/3 way …

Re: Issues with some games on a Voodoo 3

in Windows
Try installing Unreal Gold. Select the Glide option on initial startup. If this game doesn’t work, you really have problems as it works with all 3dfx cards without trouble. For Need for Speed 2 SE, did you copy the Glide EXE, nfs2sea.exe, from the CD into the installed directory and run this? …

Re: Choice of soundcard for a fast win98 computer

Also while i'm still here - if i can't get my 128bit pci-e nVidia 6200le working, should i fallback on a 64bit pci matrox g450 dual-head or a 64bit pci nVidia geforce 2mx400? We'll need someone else with more expertise on the Matrox to chime in. You might get better results opening a new thread. In …

Re: Choice of soundcard for a fast win98 computer

Yeah those gold connectors sure are sweet looking, is the quality of the sound output any better between these two? This is me, but I'd bet I could not tell the difference (not withstanding directional 4.1 versus 5.1) as far as audio quality. I'd pick the newer card made in 2001, versus 199(8 or …

Re: Choice of soundcard for a fast win98 computer

what's the advantage of the sb0100 over the ct4620? 4.1 Sound on the CT4620, versus 5.1 on the SB0100. The CT4620 does look more stylish, though. Yeah those gold connectors sure are sweet looking, is the quality of the sound output any better between these two? This is me, but I'd bet I could not …

Re: Choice of soundcard for a fast win98 computer

Thanks for the input! Sadly i don't have half-life anymore, i had the CDs but i gave them away to someone who really wanted them. I'm not sure if any of these games have vortex support, perhaps Max Payne, project nomads and AVP do? If you don't have a Vortex 2, it won't matter. If the game supports …

Re: Choice of soundcard for a fast win98 computer

If you're planning on playing A3D supported games, I'd go with the Aureal Vortex based card. It's a Vortex 1 card, though. Can't just about all cards play A3D 1.0? I'd pick the SB0100. Haven't tried with non-A3D cards. I did use a Vortex 1 based card (Diamond MX200) back in the day on my Windows 98 …

Re: How many people run Plus! or Theme's on their retro rigs

in Milliways
I installed 95 Plus! (and continue to do so) for mostly the desktop icon color icon upgrade from 256. I also like the Microsoft Pinball game (which was available out of the box with Windows NT 4.0 only at the time.) The themes were gimmicky, and I puttered around with them for only a short while. I …

Re: Gatekeeping in the retro hobby

in Milliways
I don't think there's any gate keeping in retro, just people making snarky comments trying to feel superior over others. (and I don't mean the sarcasm and jokes ^^) I guess a lot of people spend money to feel superior, it's the classic trope of having to have a better house, a better car than your …
