Re: When PC became soulless for you?

in Milliways
I became utterly depressed with how I no longer find PC experimentation fun, no dumpster diving anymore because no pcs out laying by the road. Ever since Dosbox/GNU/Linux things just work and that irritates me. I am no longer needed, I am too old since the internet made me obsolete

Windows games on reactos.

in Windows
I'm impressed with the compatibility but if they developed it like dosbox and strictly for games then maybe it would have been successful for games that would be self contained packages

Unreal Tournament 2004 CD Key Fix

in Windows
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 (edit by Dominus: key removed) I saved this key from gog.com when I bought it but I got it on steam too, so this is a valid key for the game, it doesn't do key validation check when connecting to servers or LAN gaming so go ahead, I stick to UT99 though

Re: Digital game collection addiction

I download the original CD from somewhere or rarely get it from a friend. In this way I get clean stock game. And now I may also install it on 9X if I want. Technically, that's still piracy. Maybe someday GOG will finally include original ISOs as bonus goodies. The ISO is there in the install …

Steam apparently has a contingency plan for keeping access to the games you've bought. Should Valve go under. That's coming from a company which is actively trying to fool customers that they don't own anything on account and just "rent" it. The saving grace here is that their DRM is not intrusive …

Re: List of Currently Free Games

in Milliways
I guess that NFT is a new marketing word for microtransaction. There are some differences (about uniqueness of the items you "get", and about the ecological imprint), but the concept is the same: the developer/editor makes you pay for some items in-game. Soooo... why NFTs whould be treated …

Re: Digital game collection addiction

My take on GOG games: PROs : DRM free, which is especially nice for games which originally shipped with rootkit crap like StarForce Standalone offline installers. These make it very easy to transfer games to an offline WinXP retro rig DOS GOG games can be installed on a modern system (via included …

Digital game collection addiction

in Milliways
I think steam gog and other platforms made me a digital addict I collect games but never play them usually old dos games that work in dosbox. I spent so much money for a collection that's utterly useless more worthless than physical dos game media.
