  1. Just read the instructions under "DirectX 1-8" on the link he posted, you just need to copy few files into the game installation folder.
  2. Your processor is the one that has the integrated graphics and I checked your motherboard does have video output. As for changing the name of the exe I can confirm that works, but for id Tech 3 (aka Quake 3) engine games. COD and MOHAA are Quake 3 engine games, not 4.
  3. Did you try running the games using you integrated Intel graphics to eliminate Nvidia drivers as the issue ? I used to run Quake 4 with my Intel when I was playing a mod called "False Dawn" (I highly recommend) which had some issues with AMD cards.
  4. By "free" do you mean commercial games that I got for free on various stores, free-to-play games, or real freeware games like Knytt Stories, Seal Hunter, Super Tux Kart, etc... ?
  5. I wanted to ask a guy called "jackfuste" on Widescreen Gaming Forums to make a widescreen fix, but I never did. He made a widescreen fix for Extreme G-2 when I asked him, which is also a relatively unknown N64 game ported to PC, but it re-released on Steam few years ago. The re-release does not have widescreen, which tells a lot about how much the new publishers cared. They used dgVoodoo to fix the rendering and winmm for CD audio, so they themselves basically didn't do any hard work. As for early PC games with widescreen support I know Machines from April 1999 (one of the first 3D RTS ga
  6. Starshot Space Circus Fever. On YouTube you will find a ton of people playing Nintendo 64 version that is far inferior, even on emulators that don't render it correctly, but you will find very few videos of PC version that is far superior and runs perfectly using nGlide. MobyGames doesn't even have screenshots for it. A bit off topic, but when Turok 1 and 2 remasters released recently many people thought they ported it to PC now, they praised the publishers for porting a N64 game after all these years, but the PC versions existed already in the 90s.
  7. Reviews are a subjective thing, this site should focus on technical aspects of games. I am against.
  8. I agree with Andytizer that Sony could be in a lot of trouble next generation. If streaming and cloud based stuff becomes more popular they simply don't have the infrastructure for it. Media claims how great Sony and Nintendo are doing, but I am not convinced. Last generation Nintendo sold 100 million Wii and 155 million DS consoles. This generation Wii U + Switch + 3DS are only at around 135 units sold in 9 years. Last generation PS3 and Xbox 360 together sold 170 million units, this generation so far is at around 150 million units, assuming Xbox sold around 50 million, but we
  9. The way I would like this to be handled is like the DRM warnings, where you have a note/warning that the Cd playback may be broken in Windows 7 and later with a link to a page with possible fixes. So, there should be a flag in audio settings or in middleware section for "CD audio" or something like that.
  10. Well done. Now on to the issue of CD audio tracks, July 2020 is just around the corner 😉
  11. I am annoyed that some bots and some users go around and set these to "false" and delete the user notes when it is written that they can be forced through the GPU panel, and it is left with the default "See the glossary for potential workarounds". Forcing these can cause texture artifacts in some cases, and forced anti-aliasing doesn't always work, so when I write "can be forced" it means I tested it. I would leave it as hackable, rather than false with default message.
  12. I don't care abut Saints Row personally, but always support when developers fix their old games and give new life to them.
  13. I don't know where you get that 30-40% completion that is very optimistic. The ones I checked on Steam are closer to 10% or lower. I have a similar experience. My nephews are stuck on Minecraft and now Fortnite for years. And those two games don't even have a story, characters or any depth (I know you can be creative in Minecraft, but I mean story-wise and stuff). There are so many games out there with whole worlds to explore, it is such a waste to limit yourself like that. When I was a kid I barely had any games, I mostly played demos. Me and my friend played the demo of Worms Ar
  14. To play this you need to create a shortcut with res_paths=XP map_paths=!XP then just start a new game. Please add this to the file info.
  15. Thanks, pressing Ctrl+F5 fixed it now.
  16. Few days ago I uploaded a new cover image for game Twin Sector, but the game page still displays the old image: https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Twin_Sector This happened before, with the game Claw where I uploaded a new settings screenshot in May, but the game page still shows the old image: https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/File:Claw_-_advanced_options.png It says the new images are "current", but are not.
  17. I think when a demo is available on the store a URL is not needed, just mentioning it in the table like in my picture would be enough. URLs should be posted only if the demo is available somewhere else directly like on Fileplanet, moddb or developer web page directly, anywhere where you don't need a client or account to download it.
  18. Here I made a picture: https://i.imgur.com/cwVuEkD.png Also it is silly to say something is "rare". Should we remove all references to Linux settings, because those games are "rare" ? Also wiki supports entries for many random stuff like HDR, VR (even non-official third party solutions), Havok, Bink, borderless window, etc. You will find more games with demos than support for that kind of stuff. If you go to Steam, the "New Demos" category has over 400 entries. https://store.steampowered.com/demos/#p=0&tab=NewReleases "Popular Demos" list new big games like Sha
  19. I think in the availability section for each store we could list if the store has a demo available for download. There are few problems. This wiki does not make a difference between an actual store and just a key reseller and sometimes the store is both. How to handle a situation if GamesPlanet sells a key for Steam and a demo is available on Steam ? Maybe instead of a checkmark, put a platform logo in there (like Steam) where you download it from, like it is done for (Steam) DRM section. Where to put links for demos available elsewhere, like on Moddb or Fileplanet ? I usually j
  20. It is fascinating to see some of the dumb mistakes Microsoft made over the years. I mean they had Windows, they had DirectX, they had a ton of PC game studios they already worked with and what do they do... they make a custom computer that uses all their PC tech, but incompatible and call it a console. Then they proceed to shut down their PC developers like Ensemble Studios, abandon or ignore their successful IPs like Dungeon Siege or Flight Simulator, etc... And what are they doing now ? They are literally buying and building studios that are exact replicas of studios they already had back th
  21. Most gaming forums that I have been visiting were shut down in the last two/three years; Seriously Forums, Facepunch Forums, WidescreenGamingForum and one abandonware forum. Some moved to Discord, that I don't use, and reddit, which I am not a fan of. I mostly use GOG forums now, but the company doesn't seem to care about the state of the forums. It has a lot of potential to become something bigger now when other forums are being shut down left and right and more old-school people like me are searching for alternatives. I visit Vogons because the dev of dgVoodoo is there and some other good pe
  22. All this is nonsense. Death Stranding was never a exclusive in the first place, Sony only used it for marketing its platform. All games listed are third-party games only published by Sony. This is like Alan Wake, that other Remedy game, Ori and indie titles published by Microsoft that appeared on PC/Steam. Only after Gears 4 and Forza, and now MCC and Halo 6 can you see MS is really into it. Until Sony releases their first party titles like Uncharted, Shadow Of Colossus or Horizon Zero Dawn on PC (directly and not via streaming) all this is not worth discussing.
  23. I am bumping up this thread, not sure if anything was done about it in the meantime. CD music playback is broken since Windows Vista: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=36870&p=643220&hilit=HardwareAudioMixer#p643220 Not only do people have trouble getting the music to play, but once it does you have no control of the music volume, changing the music volume in the settings changes other sounds as well. I experienced that in several games now. And it gets worse than that, I am currently playing a game on Windows XP, because the game changes CD music volume dur
  24. That DLC was so poor and ended with such a slap in the face, gamers that don't know it exist are lucky. The whole game was a slap in the face actually.
  25. I think it might be a good idea to make some kind of time limit for making edits. Just look at this mess here in history: https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Area_51_(2005) 9 edits in 7 minutes and it seems nothing was changed in the end. Surprising this was not misused by bots or something. It is annoying to check the changes when people go on a edit spree like this with very short edits. Maybe after the third edit in a short time span to block for 5 minutes, like when login in.
