    What to do with XB360

    A while ago I posted a thread and I got all I wanted out of the system. The games I didn't finish (including arcade) I cleared. Even the bad ones... So what can I do with this system? I was going to toss it on the curb and let someone take it for free. But if there is a possibility of running...

    Can't update 2009 Macbook Pro

    Ok, I think fatigue played a role, as it worked this morning first shot. The disk boots, but I get the interdiction sign. Ok, gonna pester the owner if they have the original disks around... this is bonkers and I am tired.

    Can't update 2009 Macbook Pro

    I am having quite the adventure. So as stated above I have been trying to make bootable disk images. And it looks like I have been doing them wrong from Windows using various apps. Where they DO make a disk image from the DMG correctly, that DMG is not bootable, and needs to be mounted then...

    Can't update 2009 Macbook Pro

    You are right, I was looking at the graph backwards... had the newest to the left. So with that thinking I should install Mountain Lion, as it was what was installed when purchased, then do the Upgrade Waltz to El Capitan. Then why in the heck does the thing try to install High Sierra, when it...

    Can't update 2009 Macbook Pro

    It should support, because it was running El Capitan before I wiped it, and I did the OS upgrades via the AppStore to get there. My best best bet is to get access to the disks that came with the device and run from there methinks.

    Can't update 2009 Macbook Pro

    I have a 2009 Macbook Pro and for the life of me, after wiping it, can't get it to install a fresh copy of the OS (High Sierra or Catalina). I have tried to... install from the OS's built in recovery partition. use Internet Recovery. install Catalina from a USB. Set the date back a month after...

    Non-HDMI XB360 (looking for VGA to HDMI)

    That looks rather nice, I tried looking for this item on Amazon Japan, no luck (so far, might be listed under a different name...) I got damn lucky as someone listed the ONLY component adapter on Yahoo! auctions recently.

    Non-HDMI XB360 (looking for VGA to HDMI)

    I'm gonna call up some friends in the city to check out some of the used game hardware stores. Lately a lot of stores started getting rid of PS2/Vita//Xbox hardware and software for space. So it's a bit hard.

    Non-HDMI XB360 (looking for VGA to HDMI)

    It's been damn near impossible to find one without the huge markup/sold as junk. So pretty much, whichever I find first (for under $15)

    Non-HDMI XB360 (looking for VGA to HDMI)

    Trying to connect my 360 to my TV and the only connections are HDMI or component. I've tried many VGA to HDMI connectors and they have all failed. Is there a legit option for this? Something from MS? Or am I just out of luck when choosing from the 1000's of "vga to hdmi" adapters from...

    Strange Desktop glitches w/3090

    Venturi - The glitch issues went away with a driver update (using DDU). So I had pretty much given up as I was under pressure to deliver some assets. After it was finished I went back to looking into the issue. I got the new PSU and set up my other machine with the 3090 and it ran fine. While...

    Unreal Engine 5 Feature Showcase

    If you have any kind of coding experience (HTML does not count, sorry) I would say C of course. If you have zero coding experience, you can still start with Blueprints to see what you want to do visually, then start replacing that functionality with C.

    GDC 2022 - Unity tech demo "Enemies"

    For me it's the hands that bug me about the character (reminds me of Seinfeld Manhands :P). Hair, the cloth and look of the environment not at all. Mouth/tongue interactions will always look odd. Even in off-line rendered films. Not sure if there is a game production that is going for this...

    Returnal (PS5)

    If anyone wants to add me, send me a message. Played with a n00b, it was still a fun.

    GDC 2022 - Unity tech demo "Enemies"

    For those who like to keep up with these things. In terms of what is visibly displayed, I find this more impressive than the Matrix or Valley of the Ancients demo by Epic Games. This character looks damn near photo-real. Other than a few issues on the skin and lighting, I like this more than...
