Re: I've migrated to Windows 7

* AMD graphics drivers and general chipset support -- dropped XP support at some point in the past Oh yeah, I forgot about that. I was actually using a hand-me-down AMD during my Win7 trial, and then switched back to XP, and everything was so much worse...it wouldn't even let me use native res on a...

What software doesn't work in XP? I only know of a couple minor things, like IE, which forced me to switch to Opera a long time ago (and then Firefox when Opera became a RAM muncher).

Re: I've migrated to Windows 7

Problem is you won't be able to use Windows XP forever. Programs will eventually stop working on it, and you will start having trouble with simple tasks, like watching videos because you can't get a codec to work. Do you really want to go through that? The Internet is already quickly becoming such ...

Re: I've migrated to Windows 7

Almost every intel CPU since at least the Core series has implemented shutdown from critical thermal events, and even before that they slowed themselves down to prevent them from cooking themselves. Most laptops that I've had overheating experience with, it was never explicitly the CPU that was cau...

Re: I've migrated to Windows 7

PC CPUs have't increased GHz for a decade either, just threads and possibly instructions per clock. I read somewhere that they can't get much more speed from a single core using today's semiconductors without everything overheating and dying (not unlike a certain Microsoft console). Heck, even most...

Re: games that seemed scary when you were a kid

I mean that you couldn't escape from. You had to die. Yeah, there's a lot of those. Most of them have lava/slime or some other kind of trap to kill you, though...I wouldn't be surprised if there's one where you're just -stuck-, though. I swore I found one in Heretic, but I may have been cheating......

Re: I've migrated to Windows 7

I don't know if it's a result of having installed Classic Shell, but on Windows 8.1, Win+E opens File Explorer to "This PC" (formerly "My Computer"). I think 7 did that too, but any time you tried to open or save a file while using a program, it always tried to default to "libraries" and you'd have...

Re: I've migrated to Windows 7

I'm just naming things that I do on firstboot of a Win7 install... I was overwhelmed with the amount of registry hacks required to make 7 into something I could use on a daily basis, and gave up and reinstalled XP =( Having everything default to "Libraries" instead of my root drives made many tasks...

Re: games that seemed scary when you were a kid

When I was really little, watching my uncle and his friends play Shadowgate on the NES scared me so much that I hid behind the TV. I really did not like skeletons. At all. For a long time. Then when I got a bit older (third grade, I think), we borrowed a Macintosh, and I got to play a couple of the ...

I was under the impression that it was the original Japanese ROM, but I've never tried it.

Re: [GBA] Classic NES Series Anti-Emulation Measures

Got any adaptors that output 15khz RGB? (Y'know, simply for playing games?) :-D That would be awesome. There's this, if you haven't tried it: http://community.arcadeinfo.de/showthread.php?8170-International-Overview I've only tried it on one machine, and it said the drivers weren't supported. I'm g...

Re: Can Everdrive-GB run homebrew?

Tried a few homebrews/protos/hacks/translations/etc. and everything ran fine. I think the only thing that didn't run was those NES ROMs. When I bought mine, it didn't come with a shell (you had to hack up your own), but the ones they currently offer do have a small slot for the DMG's power switch. P...

Re: Best NES controllers?

I've never had the opportunity to try the Max.

I have an Advantage, and it's alright, but sometimes the buttons get stuck and won't come back up.
