Re: Coil whine - fact or myth?

in Milliways
Coil whine isn't a myth, I have a card that does it under certain (uncommon) conditions. Buy from somewhere with a good return policy. Except if you have AMD graphics cards because they can eliminate around 80% of the latency with their Enhanced Sync driver technology . That's basically triple …

Re: dgVoodoo 2.6.x and related WIP versions

Heretic II (1.06 or 1.07) has a black screen if I select 3dfx with dgvoodoo2 Glide2x.dll. At the same time, I hear the sounds of the menu if they start to press the arrow buttons. The only thing, the splash screen does not play with 3dfx. I tried this game but doesn't work with 3DfxGL => dgVoodoo. …

Re: Die Hard Trilogy 2 - game isn't saving

in Windows
I played through the first 4 levels of this, saving each time. When I go to 'Load Game', the list is empty. According to PCGamingWiki, the save location is: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\n-Space\DHT2\Save Games Registry virtualization is sometimes a …

Re: Installing retail games on Windows 10 - CD/DVD Drive problems

in Windows
I've installed lots of old games from CD/DVD without problem. I haven't heard of this from anyone else either. It's probably not a Windows 10 problem, but a "you" problem. Maybe some commonality between the two systems you're not thinking of; some installed driver that messes with CD/DVD drive …

Re: Problematic Windows games list

in Windows
I would like to write more about this since I had this problem for years in the past, until I followed the instructions in 2014 and they worked for me; Did you read the later post I made? There's a winmm patcher that might be easier: https://w.atwiki.jp/nectaris/pages/22.html Assuming it forwards …

Re: Why can't older 3D games be rendered at higher resolutions?

in Milliways
Most Gamecube games I've seen are emulated are rendering 3D geometry at higher resolution. kjliew is either wrong, or arguing some really pointless semantics. As for doing the same for PC games, as mentioned for really old games you can't. They don't draw their 3D graphics in any standard way, they …

Re: List of fixes,mods and ports worth playing

in Milliways
You said "good story content and/or gameplay", but several of the things you listed are purely technical, so: AliasIsolation is essential for playing Alien Isolation (until 10 years in the future where we can supersample). It just implements temporal antialiasing and makes the game look a lot better …

Re: Archive.org lawsuit

in Milliways
Because suing people who have no money is a waste of time...and money (unless you are after something else like a takedown). The RIAA once sued a dead grandma. Suing for copyright is often about making examples out of people, not getting money. And any ruling cannot take into account future …

Re: Archive.org lawsuit

in Milliways
It's a charity that runs on donations. I am not sure there is anything to bankrupt. They did not make any money from their "book lending" so I doubt the publishers are going to go for the jugular. They will probably just force the "library" offline. They will try to get as much money as they can …
