Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
Been playing a lot of an old favorite recently, a "classic comfort game" if you will. 😀 OpenRCT2 is an amazing re-implementation of this classic. The originals are still better than all the later versions of Roller Coaster Tycoon in my humble opinion.

Re: Problem with Dos games (no signal)

In my adventures building myself a couple retro gaming computers recently, one for DOS/Windows 3.11 and one for Windows 95/DOS, I quickly discovered that most modern VGA to HDMI adapters do not play well with DOS resolutions. If you look at the product descriptions on some of them, they list their …

Re: intel is back!

in Milliways
That's how I am, and I don't think I'm old. I don't think I was too clear in my other post, but I buy based on what should have the fewest problems. Then I run it into the ground, so I won't be upgrading anyway until my i5-8500 is too slow or the motherboard dies. I guess I never got out of " …

Re: What was your first vehicle?

in Milliways
1978 Camaro. Late 1989. Got it for $500. Fixed it up and drove it until 1994'ish. Burned up the transmission. Sold it. Looked very close to the one in the photo below once it was patched and painted. Loved that car. 😀

Re: intel is back!

in Milliways
Call me crazy....call me old.... But I just never really cared who's name was on something. If it does what I want, how I want, fits in my budget, then I'm good. :) That being said, all 4 "modern" systems in my home are Ryzen/Radeon powered and work wonderfully. The bang v buck was just too good and …

Re: Installing windows 10 22H2 on non UEFI motherboard

in Windows
Does the USB drive show up in the BIOS and can you set it above your internal drive in the boot order? Normally, that's all you have to do. If it's not showing up in the BIOS then I'm not 100% sure. Kinda sounds like you're doing it all correctly. Using an ISO to create a bootable USB.

Re: How important is screen resolution to you?

in Milliways
My short answer is, it's very low on my list of importance. As long whatever it is looks good to me, I'm fine with it. I grew up in the 70's and 80's, so that should give you an idea on what I am happy to watch. I still own a lot on DVD, and some of it is just ripped from VHS, so 480P and up fits …

Re: What would you do different?

in Milliways
Like others are saying, I would tell my 90's self to not clear out his hardware collection. Back then, I looked at it as "why am I keeping all this outdated junk" instead of "I'm collecting all of this soon-to-be classic hardware". I got rid of far more than I could ever get back, and for pennies on …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

in Milliways
Well, this is more of a "modern retro" project, but I decided to make myself a new coaster for my desk. I've been using a dead real floppy with some feet stuck on it for quite some time, but it's seen better days. So, I 3D printed a floppy designed to be a coaster, printed and attached the Doom …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Been enjoying some of my favorite Atari classics via the "Atari 50: The Anniversary Celebration" on Steam. Probably the best collection they've released to date. Spent a lot of time playing their remix version of Yars Revenge, a game I played way too much back in the day. Also played a lot of Dark …

Re: Online copies of games are not owned

in Milliways
Like others have said, technically speaking, you never did really own the rights to any games, movies, shows, or other media you purchased in the past. Legally speaking, the mix tapes many of us used to make were, by the letter of the law, illegal. The thing is, none of that really mattered all that …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

I woke up to my desktop wallpaper being replaced with a badly-scaled (blurry) and badly-cropped (the bottom was cut off under the taskbar) message about Windows 10's end of support (in a year and a half). It really didn't look like anything Microsoft themselves would do, but it had functioning …
