    8 states to allow iphone and apple watch to be used as drivers license/state i.d.

    As long as the police can scan the code to confirm it's legit, I don't see a problem with this other than holding that data in your phone or in an account that could potentially be compromised. Sure, someone could compromise the state's systems that hold the data, but holding it in your phone...

    Horizon Zero Dawn

    I played on PS4 Pro (30FPS) and then PC (100FPS) and the PS5 patch makes it feel very snappy at 60FPS. Also, not sure if it's just the better PS5 hardware, but loading times seem to have significantly improved after the PS5 patch. My PS4 had an SSD, so it wasn't terrible, but loading was rough...

    Back 4 Blood from Turtle Rock Studios

    Hearing Adam Jensen's voice in the opening area just made me upset. It's like that guy needed to find other voice work because we're probably not going to see another Deus Ex game for a long time. 😭

    Windows Update Error 0x800f0922 With Solution (Server 2019)

    Posting this here since my web search results weren't very helpful or I ended up with a different solution. I was receiving error 0x800f0922 when trying to install the 2021-08 KB5005030 update on Server 2019 (2021-08 .NET update also failed with same error), this is what I found in...

    Official PS5 Thread

    Got the beta firmware and SSD setup, haven't played anything yet, but moving games from native storage to M.2 was pretty fast given their size. I have a decent gaming PC and I deal with enterprise-level storage on a regular basis so I think I have a good idea of what 'fast' is when it comes to...

    I registered 7/29 and received the email invite today. Still waiting for my SSD (Gigabyte GP-AG70S1TB) to arrive, but it should be here this weekend.

    Resident Evil 8: Village

    I had stutter in the demo when dealing with the swarm/sister, I took a detour to cleanup some of my game backlog so I'm not yet that far in the full game. RTX 3090 + i7-9700K

    Borderlands 3

    I turned on the Cartel event and now I have to re-find the coordinates. Is it doing this for everyone else or is this possibly because I initially played it with a friend that unlocked the mission during the initial event?

    Windows 11 reveal coming June 24th

    I'm aware of the auto HDR they're adding for games, that sounds nice, I just hope it auto-HDRs the Windows UI!

    Windows 11 reveal coming June 24th

    Anyone know if they've fixed how the GUI looks when HDR is enabled? As of Windows 10, the UI looks washed-out or bland if you leave HDR enabled, so I disable HDR until I play a game that needs it enabled in Windows 10 before launching.

    Windows 11 reveal coming June 24th

    I had to enable Intel PTT in the UEFI to get the compatibility pass. TPM is enabled also, but I don't have a module installed.

    Dead Space remake

    Needs to go back to being a slower-paced scary game instead of Streets of Rage in space. DS3 was good, but too much action.

    Resident Evil 8: Village

    You sure you have fullscreen set and not any windowed mode? Might try toggling to windowed and back to fullscreen if you are already fullscreen.

    Days Gone

    I played up to Copelands camp and, while cut scenes seem to have some odd pacing/hitching issues, gameplay is 100% smooth. I have everything cranked (i7-9700K + RTX 3090) @ 1440p and I've set the refresh rate to 120Hz. Haven't had any control issues, but I'm also using a PS4 gamepad. The native...

    Days Gone

    If I remember correctly, you can loot better weapons from enemies, but there's not a huge variety. Pretty sure I looted a nice melee weapon before I was able to craft it and then you keep loot scrap from vehicles so you can maintain your melee weapon.

    Resident Evil 8: Village

    That's good to know. I've not really got started, I'm basically past the castle "initiation" with ~2 hours logged, and I see stupid posts in the Steam forum about how the game is only 9 hours long. I guess some people just jump in a game and run in the straightest line possible. I have a 3090...

    Thanks for the tips. I'll lead the first daughter to the merchant to see if that changes her thirst for men.

    Resident Evil 8: Village

    I just got to the castle and did everything I can before I have to encounter the first bee lady and I'm kinda dreading it because I want to explore. Can I just buy a buncha shotgun shells and kill those guardian things in the jail or should I just run for it and run into the next friggin bee...

    Epic Games Store

    Not gonna happen. Too much money to be generated from China. Until politicians step up (LOL!) and start making it cost-prohibitive to manufacture in China, the western world will continue dumping money into China, which will have consequences, but that's for discussion that's probably happening...

    Official PS5 Thread

    Saw this video when they uploaded it, the worst part: Hmmm, nope. (The "HD" logo at the bottom-right should be "HDR" if the video was actually uploaded with HDR.)

    HDMI 5.1 output on old H61M-HVS

    That 5.1 channel output spec is likely for the 3.5mm analog outputs on the board. For HDMI, it will most likely be using the Intel integrated GPU, which should support uncompressed multi-channel audio, probably up to 7.1 and depending on what options your AVR supports.

    Resident Evil 8: Village

    This game has an issue with HDR displays when having a second screen connected. Looks like DMC5 had the same issue and must've been fixed at some point because DMC5 works fine for me. I have to disconnect my HDMI AVR to get the game to launch properly, then I can reconnect the HDMI AVR and get...

    Any thoughts on RE Village demo PS5?

    LOL, I also pre-downloaded it and totally forgot to check up on when it was playable.

    Returnal (PS5)

    Looks interesting, but the Cave shooter projectiles (which don't really appear to be tricky based on what I've watched) and the $70 price tag are discouraging.

    Is it worth having all your network equipment on a UPS?

    I put my basic network equipment on a Cyberower 750va SL750U UPS. Our power is very consistent, but we get the occasional blip while I'm inevitably using actually the internet and it keeps me from having to wait for the router and modem to sync back up.

    Horizon Zero Dawn (Official Discussion Thread)

    I typically stick to using gamepad on games that were designed for it (originally console titles). I used a PS4 gamepad and the arrows curved to hit the spot that I was aiming at on the target. Not sure if that is how it also behaves with KB/M, but that's the level of aim assist I experienced. I...

    NVIDIA 3000-series Resizable BAR support is out.

    LOL. Not much is explained well in PX1. This 3090 is my first EVGA card, I tried PX1 and dumped it quickly; went back to MSI Afterburner. I only keep PX1 around for the firmware/vBIOS updates. It'll be interesting to see some benchmarks for this stuff. Death Stranding, while it already runs...

    NVIDIA 3000-series Resizable BAR support is out.

    FYI for EVGA cards: There's a Re-BAR tab in PrecisionX1 where you need to update your card's BIOS. When I installed the new PX1, it updated firmware automatically when launching PX1, or something(?), then I installed the new GPU driver. No ReBAR. Found a post on EVGA's forum showing that Re-BAR...

    Dolby Atmos for Home Theater

    Do Windows games with the non-descript 'spatial' audio option (Borderlands 3, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, etc.) typically work properly on Atmos speakers as long as you have Dolby Access and everything setup correctly in Windows? The aforementioned games have Atmos support on Xbox, so I assume...

    Create El Capitan recovery media on M1 MackBook?

    This is a 20" iMac early-2008, didn't know it was that old. I was able to create proper restore media from Apple using my Windows machine and the Mac seems healthy (HDD, wired/wireless, etc.) except the screen has some light wavy bars in it. This is an outline of how I created the install media...

    Create El Capitan recovery media on M1 MackBook?

    I was getting an error when trying internet recovery, it was vague, but search results seemed to indicate that I needed to sign into iCloud and have an El Capitan purchase or Mac registered to the account. I didn't have that at the time, but am now considering seeing what I can accomplish by...

    Create El Capitan recovery media on M1 MackBook?

    Am I correct in assuming that it's not possible to create bootable USB install media for El Capitan using an ARM-based MacBook (Big Sur)? My brother-in-law brought me a Mac to fix, it looks like the OS was wiped or corrupted and the recovery partition was useless. It had El Capitan, but I've...

    Days Gone

    I played it on PS4, I enjoyed the gameplay and story, but one playthrough was enough for me. It's easy to catch everything in one playthrough, the only real difficult part might be clearing out the hoards, which consists of 2-3 required missions and the rest are optional objectives for an...

    HDMI 2.1 AVR Recommendations (2021)

    I think I looked within the past several months at the brands you mentioned and all of the HDMI 2.1 AVRs I could find (even the expensive ones!) had one HDMI 2.1 input and the remaining inputs were 2.0; that's a solid 'no' from me for an AVR that I would probably want to keep for 10 years. Has...

    Ebay charges tax?

    I was very recently thinking about how the golden age of internet shopping is dead because most of my favorite sites are now charging sales tax. I'll be in the market for a new TV this year, was going to buy from Crutchfield, but might just buy locally since the price will be the same and to...

    GIGABYTE Releases Resizable BAR Support for AMD 500-series Motherboards via BIOS Updates
