Re: Some Questions about Selling Big Box Games

in Milliways
If it's a rare box, people do buy it even without the disk(c)s or in questionable condition. I wouldn't junk the bad discs, but keep it and make a copy of it if you really use the old media. I don't really use the discs/media that come with big box games, unless I really don't have a source or it …

Re: CD-Burners

in Milliways
I don't miss burning discs, my burners were all quite loud especially the later ones. It is also annoying when a CD-R burn fails and you have to junk the disc, resulting in a heap of junk CD-Rs. At least CDRW could last a bit, my old 700MB Sony CDRW is still alive. The life span for good quality CD- …

Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
Diablo holds up so well. Better than Diablo II IMHO. Diablo feels closer to it's rogue inspiration, with more randomness in each run with different side quests and shrines. And the loot is tuned way down so that each floor you may find a single item that's a really good upgrade. And with only 16 …

Re: Most important games

Morrowind - This game is just cozy to me, like a game where you can go to rest about with the freedom live anywhere you wanted, modding is an obsession everytime I reinstall one of these Bethesda games. The strange architectural differences between factions and otherworldly structures also carried …

Hoping to finish DKII this time, back then I could not progress past a certain mission because the game would crash. Even with GOG's DKII-DX version on Windows 10 it is not very stable, still need some patches to fix GOG's release.. using the in-game screenshot function would crash the game, also …

Re: Tips to be a pro fleebay seller.

in Milliways
Not fleabay but a lot of sellers just don't bother. They usually dump a blurry picture of the hardware, sometimes covered in dust, untested condition (of course), no model info, just a vague graphics card. I have one say they don't get paid enough to check out the model for their listing, take it or …

Re: Good value Win98 Graphic Card

in Marvin \ Video
Ok thanks, I'll keep in mind to look out for a 128-bit MX440. I had a MX 4000 back then and I remember it ran poorly, and the MX440, MX400 numberings/amount of versions are rather confusing haha. Although am pretty tempted to try Quadro 2 Pro after seeing Phils video, the overclocking results are …

Re: Good value Win98 Graphic Card

in Marvin \ Video
With a P3 1 Ghz for late 98-2001 games, should I go with (able to find only these atm): - Quadro 2 Pro AGP - Performance should be around GeForce2 Ti. I have seen Phil's review , seems like a good card for Windows 98, but MX440 should have better compatibility and Pixel/Vertex shaders support. - …

Re: What do you think about Steam Deck handheld PC ?

in Milliways
The price itself wins against GPD/Aya NEO iinm, at least for the $400 one, which you can still add an SSD later, but without anti-glare etched glass, would have to see an actual unit for the difference. The dock is kinda a must have if you want to use it as a docked PC with keyboard/mouse/external …

Re: What game made you upgrade to Windows 95 back in the day?

in Milliways
Probably Red Alert 1, I remember watching my cousins play C&C1 and Wolfenstein3d on their PCs. At the time, we were still using a handed down 8088 XT machine with a green monochrome monitor, then in 1997, we got a PC for school work but soon Red Alert, Diablo, Warcraft II found its way :P I fondly …
