    Bit shifting: I must have missed something...

    Am stuck on my laptop with Ubuntu until I get my desktop motherboard replaced, and since Linux isn't too great in the gaming department I figured I'd do a little programming. I noticed one of my functions was producing some incorrect results though and finally tracked down the problem to...

    Anybody else getting funky characters in Firefox 3?

    I've used FF3 off and on before today on several different systems, but today I decided to go for it and install the recent release candidate on my main PC. But it seems like any place that a non-ASCII character is used on a webpage, FF3 uses a funny hexadecimal character to represent it. (See...

    Is the forum behaving strangely today or is it just me?

    I've seen an inordinate number of duplicate posts today, and every time I submit a post I get either a "This forum requires that you wait 15 seconds between posts. Please try again in 14 seconds." or a database error. In both cases the message posts, but it's strange. Anyone else notice this?

    Any 4400 fans here?

    Hey guys I already posted this over at GE, but I thought I'd better post it here too, just to show what a hopeless fanatic I am. :)

    Final Fantasy VII - Voices of the Lifestream

    I'm surprised nobody's mentioned this here yet, so I thought I might as well. I imagine just about everyone who's interested in this sort of thing has probably already heard about it, but just in case... It represents a pretty wide variety of genres and I think it's probably my favorite OC...

    Noobs 'n' Newbs

    Just started playing StarCraft again today after a while of absolutely no online gaming. Of course, in about 9 of the 10 or so games I played, there was the ubiquitous noobie who always manages to foul up an otherwise perfect game. So, I decided I'd had enough, and decided to come here to calm...

    Perhaps moving the high res texture forum?

    I've noticed that sometimes new users don't know to go there when they want information on high res textures. IMHO, a sub-forum of 1964 isn't the most intuitive place for it, since any N64 emulator that supports Rice's plugin (and soon Jabo's) will, by extension, support high res textures. (I...

    12-year-old arrested for opening his Game Boy too soon

    Police arrest 12-year-old for opening Game Boy present early | TG Daily At first I thought this was totally uncalled for, but as long as they were just teaching the little thief a lesson I suppose it won't hurt. :D

    More PS3 woes

    PS3 firmware update required out-of-box The only thing I don't understand is why 400,000 units won't be more than enough. :P

    Four cores? Why mess around?

    Intel has a chip in the works that sports 80 FPU processors.

    Missed mouse clicks

    This problem has me thoroughly confused. I built myself a PC about three and a half months ago and ever since I started using it, I've had problems with mouse clicks (both left and right) occasionally not registering. Sometimes for a second or two, the mouse just won't click, which is very...

    Dell laptops are on fire - seriously

    PS3 will ship with PS2 chips onboard Looks like it's gonna be one expensive system to manufacture until they develop a good PS2 emulator (not that it won't be afterwards).

    Did I cover all the bases?

    Getting ready (probably) to order all the components for my new PC and I was hoping you guys could read over my list and see if I'm forgetting anything. I'll be using my current monitor, mouse, keyboard and speakers, so those are already covered, but it's the essentials that I'm worried about...

    To use a 64-bit OS, or to not use a 64-bit OS...

    The day when I get my new PC may be nearing (and it may not be), but I will be getting a 64-bit CPU whenever I do end up getting it (though, the main reason I'm getting the CPU I'm getting is because it's dual-core, not because it's 64-bit). I've heard there can be some driver hassles with...

    Direct64 v0.5.03.20 plugin

    When I try to run PJ64 1.6 (any ROM) with this plugin I get a message saying "No pixel shader support detected!" and then PJ64 crashes. Any idea why this happens and/or what I can do to fix it?

    Reversing the N64->PC controller process

    All the time I see ads for adapters that can convert an N64 controller for use in a USB port. I was just curious if anything has been made that can do the opposite. (Adapt a PC controller for use on an N64.) I know I'd play my 64 a lot more often if I had a controller with a good analog stick...

    Another game with a forgotten name...

    EDIT: Game found! Okay, I played this game like seven years ago, so forgive me if I don't remember too much. It's for NES and it's centered around a little guy with an upgradeable gun (I think you just pick up upgrades in the various levels and can lose them if you get hurt). It's not a...

    What's required to take advantage of a 64-bit or dual core CPU?

    Title says most of it, but here's some example questions: 1. Can a 64-bit application run on a 32-bit OS, but still take advantage of a 64-bit processor? 2. How do programs take advantage of dual core processors: Does the OS have to be written for dual core CPUs, but then make it seem to the...
