Re: Sound cards vs On board

I wouldn't even think of going back to integrated sound. For starters, the Realtek ALC889A implementation on my motherboard (Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3P 2.0) is rather prone to hissing and whatnot through headphones. Clearly not a very good analog output at all. Newer motherboards may be better about that ...

Re: Reverse Engineering the Force Feedback Pro

I own a SideWinder Force-Feedback 2 and can confirm that not only does it work on Vista/Win7 64-bit, but that force-feedback does indeed work in every game I know that has it, even with nothing more than the bare-bone drivers already present in Vista/Win7 64-bit. Good thing all of them allow in-game...

Converting Logitech WingMan Interceptor (ADI) to USB

I happen to have a couple of Interceptor sticks lying around. Probably the best flight stick Logitech ever made; all it really needs are a USB interface and rudder twist. Still, I'd like to get them working on modern computers, even if I do have a nice MS SWFFB2 to use. I've searched here and found ...

Re: What's with the source ports and slow maximum turning sp

So the faster turning rates even applied in multiplayer? Nasty, and unquestionably a cheat in competitive multiplayer. I didn't get the chance to play D1/D2 multiplayer until very recently, when I got together with some friends for D1X-Rebirth co-op, so I wouldn't have noticed that at all. If nothin...

Re: descent 3 directsound multi channel audio?

You should set your windows speaker configuration to match what you are actually using. So if you have a 5.1 system wired up and are using it out loud set it to 5.1, or if you are using headphones set it to either stereo or headphones. If you have it set to 5.1 but don't actually have a physical 5....

What's with the source ports and slow maximum turning speed?

I've quietly enjoyed Descent over the years and decided to revisit it recently, but something's been bugging me ever since I got rid of the old Win98SE box I used to play it on...the turning speeds are much, much slower than I remember. Makes it more difficult to quickly engage surprise attacks from...
