  1. Games with disturbing Gigeresque imagery

    Yeah, all true — except for the first reply in the thread by @Blu3Flame, which says: I think that final Ecco sequence took me months to beat and just to make it worse, that one time I did was so easy!
  2. Surely the launch for the announcement of a series of social media posts that get the World ready for AMAZING news of a future release of the video (after it's been uploaded from a phone had the 'Hollywood touch' and been ground into small parts that ultimately show nothing everything at its finest)?! [Date to be delayed confirmed.]
  3. Steam

    That's given me cheer. Thank you.

    Right down — up?! — to the height, you could be me, Nathan! Are the special moves anything like the Street Fighter type of combo or very simplistic? That's always given me pause for thought as I can't really do much beyond the odd button press or two. The simpler, the better really. I don't need to be good at the game and I'd be happy enough if I could still have a laugh from simple moves and proximity-based variants or specials. Anything Sensi-style would be fine with me!
  5. Rllmuk racing wheel thread

    Do you know if the supply is okay, King? For a while, I thought my 360 wheel was broken or that its 'bodge' at feedback wasn't anything like old reviews had said. The PSU from my earlier PC wheel fixed all that despite the numbers on the third-party unit looking correct and it did a reasonable, if noisy job of suggesting what a car was doing. Just to eliminate another possibility, as odd as it may seem, I've also found USB 2.0 to be more compatible with my wheel. Depending on the game, it was iffy with a 360 pad at times too. Though it could be a quirk of my system, I'd initially used the 3.0 sockets for the wheel as they're a little closer to where I sit and it wasn't until I switched to the 2.0 ones that it behaved normally (if it was even recognised with 3.0!). The last thing I can think of at the moment may again be more applicable to my older-than-a-DFGT wheel: Logitech's Profiler. Going back to Windows 7 and up to the current 10 installation, I found that I had to use a particular revision of the software. Looking at the file I saved, it was a 64-bit 'lgs510' (which shows up as Version 5.10.127 on Profiler's About panel). If I'm correctly remembering when I ran through Logitech's download pages, I think the DFGT was included in a later file but the same principle may apply where one version just works for you. Fingers crossed!
  6. Rllmuk racing wheel thread

    The Logitech supply for an older wheel of mine has the second set of figures on it. I don't know the output on a junk PSU that came with a similar wheel for the 360 but only the 24V/0.75A Logitech one results in feedback.
  7. That was going to be my question! I don't have a modern console and have seen no more than race footage on YouTube as a result. I've loved catching up in the thread for the pics as much as the opinions. However you've produced them, U-1, they're wonderful.
  8. Dirt Rally

    Just posted that in Bargains... and then came to the thread! D'oh! Anyway, I'm in now too. I'll be back to moan at y'all if it's not up to scratch!
  9. Project CARS (Slightly Mad Studios) / NAMCO Bandai

    I can't comment on how it's been with the consoles but what's frustrated me is that for the longest time during development it just worked! Though I've not bothered for months, it felt like I had to start fixing the controls again whenever returning to it following time with other sims. Even after using 'just right' settings that caused me to be positive here about CARS ahead of its release! A lot of that depended on the car too but I'd find myself floundering with the steering even desperately trying modern cars with traction control or whatever. Whether new or very old, those other games have never been so problematic and everything from GT machinery to the most fragile and sensitive Formula cars responds well via wheel or 360 controller. Or keyboard or mouse, come to think of it! It's so odd.
  10. Retro Food Bank 2015

    I wish it was all of the time from everyone at the moment but I was going to ask if you had anything planned. I'll PM you. [Edit] Mods, could Lorf's post with the video be copied at least to a new thread in Discussion so that it can be seen more?
  11. Formula One - 2015 Season

    Do it, kiro. Back to 2015, I've been watching F1 less and less since early in the last decade and care sadly little for most of the circus in this era. There's a better world for me in bikes, Endurance, GT, V8s, DTM and the tech, sights, sounds, racing personalities and attitudes in some of those but I've always looked forward to your round-ups, Bob. Typos 'n' all, they've been fantastically entertaining year after year. Wouldn't have changed a thing! It's not often I get a chance, so I just wanted to jump in and say... thank you. Enjoy the racing!
  12. The Crew - PS4/Xbox One/PC

    I've just registered with Ubi and used the third code. I'm surprised it worked after so long but thank you, VN1X!
  13. Tim Hunkin - bizarre arcade machines

    The name of Tim Hunkin kept ringing a bell for a minute or two until it clicked and evoked wonderful memories of what might now be an old and long-lost style of informative programme. No weird and over-the-top enunciation, no bizarre and constantly shifting pronunciation, no talking down to the audience, no 'vocal fry' and no non-stop music soundtrack or layers of post-processed effects, just engineers, a static camera and lots of content squeezed into twenty-five minutes! Oh, and memorable little animations that are a signature of the series! Given a recent thirty-year anniversary and a quick glimpse of Workbench, 'The Word Processor' might be the most fitting episode of The Secret Life of Machines for Retro... Wikipedia includes summaries of episodes in the three series. It's hard to grasp that Series One was first broadcast all the way back in 1988! It's only a little younger than the Amiga 500! There's more on The Secret Life of Machines Web site! The embedded YouTube links are dead but it's good for reading the 'How It Works' cartoons for each episode. Thanks for the link and videos in the first post! I'm looking forward to seeing the machines and then sharing the links for them.
