Re: Sudden restart of PC

Yeah, a decade old power supply is likely getting a bit cranky. You might want to look at the 1st gen Threadrippers if you want power to spare for the future (and don't want to pay Intel prices), since they have fallen in price big time since the 2nd gen are out. I've been building a beast for gamin...

Re: Sudden restart of PC

I'll agree on the Power supply as the most likely.. It could be either one of the 12v rails is beginning to fail, or the soft on logic was possibly damaged in a power surge. Just had to replace the wife's supply after the UPS partially failed due to repetitive surges. The most common motherboard iss...

Re: Trees Of Daggerfall [PERFORMANCE PROBLEM/SOLUTIONS]

Speaking as a user of Vue Infinite for several years, the billboard density is outright murder on both framerate and raytracing. Even an optimized render engine and instancing for animation requires clever placement of occlusion to keep rendering speeds from outright stalling due to light calculatio...

Re: The Big Hello Thread

....Or we could be outing ourselves generationally. After all, the bulk of people here fought their way through the dungeons and crashes of the original release, damned and determined that no mere game was going to defeat us. Or as one graphic defined it: 815061735.jpg Of course DF'ers get that way ...

Re: Daggerfall Unity Alpha Release

Interkarma; As someone who chased after the UPS truck back in the 90's, and have had Daggerfall on my various game boxes over the decades since that time of upheaval, when DOS was displaced/gobbled up by Win 95 (and Gods did that create issues all on its own). BRAVO. :ugeek: Hopefully now the kiddie...

Re: (NSFW Mod) Prostitution

Hmm. Actually, there is one classification that has been kinda misrepresented; Holy Prostitute. Some of the adherents of Dibella would no doubt be in that category. Historically, there is a big difference between Holy Prostitute and common street whore. The former is doing duty and acting as a divin...

Re: Airship Video

Now that is fast travel done with style! With almost all the possible options you could attach to this, It almost has to be the grand prize of an uber quest. It would make a nearly perfect storage option. Bravo! The questing options that come immediately to mind are 1) retrieving a control object th...

Re: Roads of Daggerfall

I'll be the first to admit I'm not approaching this as a coder; I'm looking at it as a writer and amateur historian. I think the point that hasn't been made clear is that the easiest way is also likely going to be the way that breaks the suspension of disbelief since you're dealing with a complex is...

Re: Roads of Daggerfall

A point of correction; Unless you want to specify that magic was used in place of bulldozers, dynamite and back hoes, major roads went -around- mountains, or through mountain passes. The 'blow it up, tear it down, RAH RAH RAH!' style of construction we have now is barely 170 years old. Before that i...
