Re: dgVoodoo 2.7.x and related WIP versions

Resolution forcing is an extra, not something that can be relied on, not the main function of dgVoodoo. So saying dgVoodoo doesn't work would be incorrect. The game calls USER32.dll/ChangeDisplaySettingsA to change resolution, which isn't a DirectDraw/Direct3D function so dgVoodoo being strictly a …

Re: Leak of Windows 11

I encountered it. What a bullshit tactic. (I'm on Windows insider preview) Insider previews is volunteering for bullshit. It's meant for testing, not general usage. I'm on Windows 10 Pro 20H2 now and since installing Windows (02/06/20) have never been asked to sign in to a Microsoft account and …

Re: 8k

I'm getting tired of this push for ever higher resolutions. What's the benefit of 8k vs. 4K at a normal viewing distance in terms of gaming? What do you actually get from that resolution other than significantly lower frame rates? Putting aside that normal viewing distance can mean a lot of things, …

I'm on Windows 10 Pro 20H2 now and since installing Windows (02/06/20) have never been asked to sign in to a Microsoft account and practically never been asked to switch browser. Only time was that one update to introduce the new Chrome Edge, but I think that particular one was backported to 7 / 8 …

Personally I would recommend against both "debloating" and "privacy" software fixes for Windows 10. They usually do more damage than they help. If you want Windows not break, avoid third party modifications to the system itself. Also avoid any modifications to the system you don't need, even if …

I said "anecdotes aside". Just because you have problems, and people are more likely to post when they do, doesn't mean it's a general problem. Also a lot of special stuff is unaffected by updates. To claim that's an instant recipe for disaster needs some sources. What SPECIAL stuff? I hate …

On the off-topic WSL discussion, it apparently has sort of native support of graphical applications in insider builds. I wonder how far off we are from setting up WINE on it being an easy solution for compatibility with games. Windows 7 isn't much better in the privacy department. Any telemetry …

Re: Leak of Windows 11

the start menu is something I haven't really used much in a very long time outside of typing something using the search well, that's because they made it pretty useless to be used it for anything else, while requiring you to use the search to be even able to find anything. remember those times …

Re: Leak of Windows 11

Windows is getting heavier day by days. In gaming sessions it automatically takes up 1gb of vram for itself and 3gb in no load. Windows XP was the last time Windows was "properly optimized". Windows XP wanted 2X the memory of the previous Windows consumer aimed OS. Also, you can't say something is …

Re: Rainbow Six transparent grill and less grassy trees

in Windows
Actually the defaults are fine (card type that is, I've changed the resolution to 20x and enabled 16xAF): RainbowSix 2021-06-16 00-45-09-92.jpg WineD3D has previously worked better (than Nvidia native) with games with color keying issues. It doesn't work for Rainbow Six on Windows 10, it might on …

Re: Disney Interactive's Maui Mallard in Cold Shadow Patch

in Windows
There's been a patch available for this game for at least 10 years now. Okay, and is that patch different from what M. WesUnwin came up with..? Helix666's patch is closed source and WesUnwin has deleted his Github repo. I don't see any way to compare them, or why it matters. Edit: well I guess I …
