Re: FYI: Steam drops XP/Vista in 2019

in Milliways
At this point, I’d wholeheartedly recommend disconnecting any XP machine from the Internet anyway, since you’re never getting any further security patches or other support for the operating system. You couldn’t pay me enough to run it myself, or support anyone else doing so. I only just barely …

The only way I see Steam failing in the next 10 or 15 years is if the entire PC platform goes the way of the dodo. Meanwhile, I can totally see the PS4 hardware or firmware failing inside …

Re: FYI: Steam drops XP/Vista in 2019

I’m not terribly worried at this point, after having distributed hundreds of dollaridoos at Steam, GOG, and Origin. They’re all hanging onto success, even if some may think it’s bad to say they’re “too big to fail”. I’m still waiting for the entire Windows operating system platform to switch their …

Re: Post your 'current' PC

Welp, my RX 480 decided to show more signs of failure, and I didn’t read the early signs from Linux, no, I reinstalled Windows 10, and was greeted by the same GPU recovery events, and not even while overly stressing the card. Nothing happened the night before, while I was playing Destiny 2. Oh well, …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I recently downloaded and started Quantum Conundrum for the first time since I bought it back in 2014 or so. Cool game. Too bad I’m on Linux now, and the compatibility leaves most of the level an untextured black mess. I’ve since filed bug reports with both Steam Proton and WineHQ, since it affects …

Re: Heads Up: Roland Sound Canvas VA VSTi Plugin!

There is a Yamaha-Tyrus link in a post above, which directs to a Google search, which leads to a post, which links to a VKontakte forum dedicated to these instrument hacks. I cannot link it directly, and I surmise that merely directing you to that Google search will get that link deleted. The forum …

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

Just please don't make it worse for PC users. :) Yes, please. And don't use autodetection, I use a lot an android tablet with 10" screen and being redirected by default to mobile pages (that tend to be shitty as hell) is a real chore. Most properly coded “responsive” mobile/desktop design rely on …

Re: Heads Up: Roland Sound Canvas VA VSTi Plugin!

Are you using the latest? There are now three different revisions of the Tyrus sampler released. The third, which was the latest at the time I last checked, was reduced to a size of about 500MB, and even in its current unfinished state, it doesn’t use all of that data for samples, the plugin just …
