Re: Windows 98SE on a PCI-E only AM4 motherboard

in Milliways
CPU, motherboard & RAM - no problems ( you have to add PCI-E bus manually once Windows 98SE installation is done ) What does this mean, and how is it done, and using what software if any ? 480GB on AHCI mode So, given the inherent 128GB hdd limit, what did you do to make this work reliably ? PCI-E …

Re: What music are you listening to?

in Milliways
Funny story about Jeremy Soule - many years ago I was looking for various game music sound track CDs, and happened upon a sealed and new Icewind Dale CD on ebay. I had no idea about composers or whatever at that time - just wanted the music on CD. And that the sellers ebay name was ' jsoule ' did …

@liqmat; what CPU did you use on this then ?? And how do you like/experience it vs whatever cpu you had in the X470 board - big/small reall world difference ? (as I've read all kinds of warnings about going over the 2000 series or a certain AGESA version, and really want as little potential hassle/ …

A warm welcome to the X470 club ! 👌 Hope those RAM sticks didnt cost too much though, as you'd be lucky to make them work at even 3400mhz.... 😆 And, as a bonus, you can install Windows 7 on this one, for years of retro goodness ! (I have done it on mine, and plan to keep it there for the next 30+ …

Re: What scary games require booze to take the edge off?

in Milliways
In a peaceful time long long ago, I remember trading in my boxed TES:Arena, floppy version(!), and a bunch of other boxed floppy games, for a boxed CD-ROM copy of System Shock 2 in a shop that specialized in used games and music(CD/LP etc). That SS2 game then turned out to be a surprisingly scary …

Re: Did you create maps for games?

in Milliways
Well, I DO actually still create a (new) map (for myself only) from scratch*, everytime I find the urge (and time) to play Civilization IV (!) again.... 😅 Limited amount of real life time + I prefer to play a certain way/maps etc. (*: granted, I do first let the game make a random map as a base for …

Nvidia drivers for Windows 7 for RTX3000 series

Now, you may wonder what this has to do with any 'retro' setup, but I figured win7 is rather old by now, and this is a pre-emptive preparation for future decades(!), to maximize options for years to come, so..... (kinda like using a GTX 780 TI etc for WinXP) I was looking at drivers for various …

Well, looks like it(440) is about 10% of the (new) minimum (monthly) wage: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-12-16/erdogan-expected-to-hike-turkey-minimum-wage-thursday And with alledgedly more than 40% of all workers in Turkey earning the minimum wage, my earlier joyful statement of it …

WOW! "GPU repair shop" ! 😲😁👌 Oh, I wish..... we had such exotic things in my part of the world. Seriously! And, I wonder what kinda shop that is, that does such things, and so cheaply !? I mean, only $30USD to fix/reball 1 GPU ? Do they perhaps repair other (retro/PC) things as well ? And do they …

Who cares about ebay prices when you can do this!

Save space and money while building your dream computer ! 🤣 https://www.gog.com/en/game/pc_building_simulator ...just randomly discovered it. But looks like it has been around for a while, so this may be old news around here. But really fits this forum/site, given that builds are (almost) all we …
