Re: FYI: Steam drops XP/Vista in 2019

I too was unable to run Fallout 3 on windows 10 using Steam... but when I decided to buy Fallout 3 on GOG, then it worked without any issues (the GOG version, the steam version has never worked on any of my systems)! From the back of my head, I think the Steam version is completely unpatched and …

Re: Poll: most annoying game controls

Anyway, anything with 3D movement and inverted look controls and no remapping option gives me conniptions. There are a lot of PlayStation 1 games with control schemes like that. Colony Wars is a series that annoyed the crap out of me with inverted flying controls. Only the last title in the series …

Re: I have ISA slots on my circa 1999 motherboard. I need a card that will work with both Windows 98 as well as "DOS mode"

I have an an Opti 89C929 based soundcard - a Mad16 Pro. It has Windows 95 drivers that also work on Windows 98SE and comes with official DOS drivers that work in almost every game. JKnipperts has also made additional DOS drivers to enhance the compatibility (for stereo in Descent 2 for example). …

Re: This forum is very hard to use from a mobile device

This year will be the year of the desktop on Linux. I am sure of it! :lol: People are simply too damn impatient and want everything instantly. No that's not the reason. On a mobile device I cannot read the posts properly, because on every sentence I have to scroll left and right to be able to fully …

Re: This forum is very hard to use from a mobile device

Most of the things floating around the web about iOS hacking is fake news. Of course. There are no exploits in the Apple ecosystem. And if there are, they only affect a small number of users - like the Uyghur Muslims for example. On topic: I really hope a mobile design for this website gets …

Re: Modern laptops vs. more traditional designs

to me the worst compromise is heat dissipation (particularly in apple computers) It's not just Apple, a lot of manufacturers cram the biggest CPU's into the thinnest cases for marketing reasons. My Thinkpad L390 Yoga is an amazing device - replaceable SSD, up to 64GB of replaceable RAM, Wacom …

Re: Radeon 3850 + i815EP + winXP = freeze

I see reports of HD4670 running on a Pentium 3 Tualatin so maybe yours should work.... I have one of these running in my 1.4GHz Tualatin system (when I dualboot XP, anyways). Getting drivers for this thing was an absolute pain - ATI had a legacy driver website for their cards with an AGP bridge …

Re: Ideal Voodoo 2 Cooling?

This is my ideal Voodoo 2 cooling setup: IMG_20191003_221318.jpg IMG_20191004_010318.jpg Parts used: - Radeon 9600XT - Zalman ZM80D-HP - Zalman ZM-OP1 - a couple of cheap heatsinks The big fan cools both cards very well and since it's running only on 5 volts, it's very quiet. It also looks pretty …

Re: Sound card for super socket 7 ?

Finally, I've also had very good experience with ForteMedia FM801 cards My experience with one of those was one of the worst. The drivers are constantly crashing on Windows 98 and the DOS emulation can be summarized with "Hopefully it works". There are a lot of games were the sound is garbled or …

Re: Poll: most annoying game controls

I love and hate the controls of "Edge of Chaos: Independence War 2" (or I-War 2 in short). It's a mixture of excessive keyboard shortcuts paired with full joystick controls. The learning curve for this game is extreme (and only topped by "Diaspora: Shattered Armistice"). I started playing this when …

Re: Terminator: SkyNet

Sometimes Terminator: SkyNet crashes on level transitions on my 1.4GHz Tualatin. I run it on Windows 98SE, not in real DOS mode. That's the only problem I have with this game, though. I save very often because of it. ...Got stuck in between objects a few times, though. 🤣

Re: NEW iPhones

I give more attention to the appearance of my computers than one would think a Thinkpad fan does. I'm also a Thinkpad fan and the black/red color combination is pretty timeless. Still a very good design. I prefer it over the Macbook "trashcan" optics with their aluminium body. Also, Lenovo isn't …
