Not old-school enough.
I heard it only took him 2 weeks.
I don't like Fortnite, but I like a lot of what you did here.
One day I’ll get to do a mod themed around a game people actually like
There seem to be an awful lot of people who like Fortnite. Just not me, I guess. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
How about Half-Life? I think there's nobody on the planet (who actually played it or part 2 and) who doesn't like it.
There are loads, but the crest of the wave has moved on a fair bit now, a bit like how loads of people still play minecraft but it's not a go to for the folks who played and made it popular back in the beta days.
Actually, just being honest, I dislike doing media themed builds most of the time as they rarely line up with the things I like. I'd quite like to try a Halo mod one day though, since that franchise was a big part of my childhood, it also has a strong art direction which helps a lot.
...so that's what I'm doing today: feeling old.
I'm with Gareth here. Time to plan a Commander Keen mod for me, I guess.
Hell I'm surrounded by old fogeys who keep yelling at me to get off their lawns
Can someone talk me through what's happening with the loop at the GPU block? I've recently seen my first examples of "Parallel Loops" that feed both the GPU and the CPU at the same time in Parallel, but this is new to me. There appear to be 2 in and 2 out of the GPU?
Yessssss somebody noticed! That’s actually a little bit of distro plate trickery going on there. The mirror distro on the right splits the flow, sending half above and half below. Those tubes then go in and out the same sides of the waterblock, so whilst it looks like a parallel setup, it’s actually serial.
That came out sooo pretty. I love your work.
Beveled inlays: GET OUT OF MY HEAD!
Halo makes you guys feel old? I'm waiting for an Alien Breed 3D mod. Or was I the only teenager dying endlessly in that world?
Still got my boxed copy of Alien Breed '92 in the office...
In retrospect I should have either mentioned you or blocked you from counting lol. I know you are super old-skool. Im surprised you still have any Amiga games though. I thought you were selling everything? I saw your specrum sale..epic. But I don't have the space or money to help. Keeping my Amiga 1200 and the boxed games is more than enough in my limited space.
I'm hoping I can hang on to the Miggy stuff: A1200 with 4GB CF, Ethernet swappable with Squirrel SCSI for an external CD-ROM, Blizzard Mk.IV 68030 50MHz accelerator with matched 68882 FPU and 32MB RAM, plus an A500P with internal Gotek, trapdoor 512kB expansion, and 68010 accelerator vampire, alongside a selection of boxed games, backups, and a half-decent official Aminet CD-ROM collection...
*Drools* My A1200 is standard. I wasn't able to upgrade back then. I suppose I could now, but I set it up so rarely these days. But when I play a game on something like GOG and it is the PC version I die a little inside. The music and sounds are horrible. The opening music to the original Dune on Amiga for example was amazing, or Bloodnet. Play them on pc and a piece of you dies inside. I don't miss disk swapping though. Most games were no more than 3 floppys. But Bloodnet was something like 12 disks. It was a labor of love playing games back then xD
Geroff moi laaaand you is bovverin moi sheep !
Having never played Fortnite also I can say that I have no idea what any of the build is supposed to mean. So sadly most of it is lost on me also.
