    DXVK Entering Maintenance Mode

    Oh man this kinda sucks. I really hope another developer can step in and help refactor the code or what not. Heck maybe even Valve could hire a couple of lead devs for this given the awesome work they've done with Proton...

    Seeing outbound UDP 137: Should I be worried

    Recently I've started to see some outbound traffic on my firewall to UDP 137 to IPs the end up belonging to level3, or telekenex. With this increase I've seen my firewall dropping ICMP Type 3 traffic to the same IPs, as well as a bunch in China. This has me a bit worried, as TCPVIEW doesn't...

    RMAed a BFG 8800GTX, Got a 9800 GT OC (1GB) in return

    So the question would be is this an equivalent replacement? More vram, less stream processors, MUCH smaller card. Hard to find any benchmarks of the 1GB OC version.

    Has anyone tried (or seen benchmarks) of a 4870 + 4850 in Crossfire? I'm wondering if I should play around with another 4870, or save a few bucks and go with a 4850.

    Linux + Revolution 7.1 + Coax Out = No Sound

    As per the thread title, I can't seem to get digital out to work under Linux (Mandriva 2005 or SuSe 9.3). Drivers installed ok, all the volume sliders turned up and on, but no sound plays. No problem with sound if I use soundstorm

    Having installed Doom 3 earlier today, I've been playing it for the better portion of the day :D. I have it set to the hardest difficulty (Vetren I think, because Nightmare wasn't available :( ). First thing I have to say is that I'm VERY impressed with how this runs on my system (see specs...

    Doom 3 won't run in Win2k3 Server :(

    Well, that sucks. I had to re-ghost my system to get XP back on it so that I could play it. Won't run in compatibility mode either :mad: Just gives the error "Doom 3 requires Windows 2000 or XP" Poop on that, and thank god for ghost :D

    My Revo 7.1 crapped out :( Started to get strange wooshing sounds through speakers. Went out and got another Audigy 2 ZS (was going to get another Revo, but I felt like playing with the A2 again). Previously when I had run both cards back to back, I had noticed a few things. 1. The revo...

    Anyone else tired of the "OMG when will HL2/Doom3 be released" threads?

    I for one am tired as heck of seeing 7 threads created daily, asking the exact same thing, over and over and over again. Not to mention the "Will Doom3/HL2 run on this hardware" threads. People, NO ONE FUCKING KNOWS! The games will be released when you can go into your local computer...
