    How to quiet down a portable AC unit in the PC room?

    Portable AC units have terrible efficiency, and they're noisy. If you can do a window unit it would be much better.

    WTF MS?

    It's probably through steam link using the PS5. Also psvr2 isn't as great as the specs imply. What they listed is marketing bullshit. The screen has insanely high persistence by default which causes most people motion sickness after about 15 minutes, and when you lower the persistence to...

    Porn

    They've got full VR multiplayer games with all sorts of special "controllers" now, and "4D" 8k 180 degree videos that also work with "controllers". I've never done/watched any of that of course 😉, I'm just interested in the technology.

    Playstation VR2 discussion thread

    That's sort of strange, ambiguous wording. Hopefully you can just plug the headset into a PC and it uses OpenXR so you can play unrestricted, through Steam or whatever. It would be pretty disappointing if they restricted it and made you buy all the PC games through a Playstation store or...

    Borderlands 3

    This movie seems like a classic hollywood, we're taking the general idea of the game, but completely ignoring all the details and making it however we feel like. Also the trailer is giving "we have guardians of the galaxy at home" vibes

    LG 32GS95UE – OLED 31.5″ with 4K @ 240Hz and 1080p @ 480Hz Support - The death knell of LCD panels

    I personally wouldn't sacrifice resolution if it's already 120hz or more, but counter strike and some other competitive games don't have many encounters where people are far enough away for higher resolution to make a significant difference.

    But total spending was up 16%. I wonder if that was Fortnite or their other games.

    Wifi6e on 7

    This guy https://www.youtube.com/@landpet has really good wifi reviews where tests the speeds at different ranges. I'm not sure if he's reviewed any enterprise systems though.

    Wifi6e on 7

    If you want the speeds at any significant range you definitely need to pay for a higher end router. I have wifi 6e Asus AXE11000. My wifi 6e phone maxes out my gigabit connection over WIFI throughout most of my house. It's a $700 system though. I had a $70 wifi 6e budget router before that...

    WTF MS?

    Same for me. I don't like wearing anything at all. In fact I am completely naked. I can't even stand my own hair touching me, I shaved my whole body clean. I can't stand having my hands on a keyboard or mouse. I'm in the corner of the room yelling at the computer right now to post this so I...

    The Apple Vision Pro goes on sale in the US on February 2 for $3,499

    The Vision Pro's hand tracking runs at 30 fps so it's too laggy to use for VR games. You basically just can't play VR game's in the VP which sucks. Quest 3's hand tracking actually works pretty well for gaming. Maybe the VP traded off better occlusion for higher latency. I think Apple just...

    [GOG] Flatout FREE till 2-22-24

    When I read the description I remembered reading about a game that had realitic car damage 20 years ago and thought it would be cool to see how far it's come. I never actually played it so I didn't remember what it was called. I didn't expect it to actually be that game lol.

    It's funny reading things like this A sophisticated physics engine, enabling ragdoll animations and a very advanced collision model and thinking oh that sounds interesting let's see what they did Then watching the video and it's a 20 year old game lol

    Uncensored A.I. chat software that you can run locally on your PC

    From the looks of it I think the new NVIDIA thing is basically just an interface they made for the same models you would get from hugging face. I haven't actually tried it though. I've used this https://github.com/oobabooga/text-generation-webui which works pretty well. They can work pretty...

    Amazon Prime Video will start showing ads on January 29th

    Probably just your TV settings, or the TV itself handles HDR poorly. If you're not playing it directly from the TV's built in app it's more likely to be messed up settings because that device doesn't know your TV's capabilities with contrast, peak brightness, supported frame rates, etc. But...

    When Will 8K TVs Catch On?

    I wouldn't worry about 8k. The jump from 1080p to 4k is massive compared to the jump from 4k to 8k. We're at the point of diminishing returns for resolution. Other things like contrast and peak brightness make a much, much bigger difference than resolution does at this point.

    Oh Samsung, you had one chance to redeem yourself......Tech cuts guy's TV to void warranty and Reddit removes video from the post.

    When warranties are denied it's historically been systemic and part of company policies. That's completely different and saying it in that case would be justified. A scumbag employee doing something bad and getting fired isn't the same thing. "Samsung" and "Samsung employee" has different...

    Oh Samsung, you had one chance to redeem yourself......Tech cuts guy's TV to void warranty and Reddit removes video from the post.

    Because it's the equivalent of a McDonald's employee spitting in your food then saying "McDonald's spit in my food". It's just a scumbag that would immediately get fired if they got caught doing it. Saying they "represent" the company is dishonest IMO because that's not normal behavior...

    Oh Samsung, you had one chance to redeem yourself......Tech cuts guy's TV to void warranty and Reddit removes video from the post.

    It's pretty easy to get stuff removed on Reddit. Just offer to pay a mod $100. Mod corruption has been a problem for Reddit's entire existence. But it probably wasn't that, they're super babies about any images of people being posted. I also think titling it "SAMSUNG KNIFED MY TV" is just...

    Starfield

    They're rating the game based on how they feel in the moment instead of their overall experience. If it is a multiplayer game that was updated and completely changed I can understand it, but otherwise I consider it illogical or dishonest. The people who do it will throw a fit if if you ask...

    Starfield

    I figured Starfield was probably more like Fallout in space than Skyrim in space but I would still enjoy it. But I didn't. I liked Oblivion and Skyrim because there is a ton of freedom and you can play how you want. There weren't other games that had comparable freedom and size like them at...

    I can not get my center speaker to work with my L/R front speakers.

    Yes, it would be the same with a full 5.1 system too. What you're trying to do is generally handled by the speaker system itself, not windows. Most surround sound systems have a mode called 5 channel stereo where it takes a Left/Right stereo signal and plays it through every speaker. Maybe...

    Would you buy an Ai generated Videogame?

    Yeah, more and more things have become automated in games over time. The "AI generated" no different than what's been happening for decades. Terrain generation is a very good example. It used to be completely manually coded, then editors were created, then it was "randomly generated" in the...

    Review the game you finished recently.

    I feel mostly the same. When they made HLA they didn't really make a VR game, they just made Half-Life work in VR. Yes it has nice graphics and is very polished, but the gameplay gets pretty boring once you get over the novelty of it being in VR. There is nothing special about the gameplay...

    The Apple Vision Pro goes on sale in the US on February 2 for $3,499

    How is it for VR games? I imagine without 6dof controllers it must be all hand tracked games. Is there hand lag at all in fast paced games?

    Subscription Growth Has Flattened claims games industry analyst

    That's a classic tactic used by a lot of different companies. Cable companies, satellite radio, etc, all do it too. Once the infrastructure is already built providing you the service costs them almost nothing. So if they can get you to pay anything at all it's worth it to them.

    You don't need to do any programming. Most of the stuff is done automatically, then you can go in and replace textures or whole objects using a UI.

    RTX Remix Runtime Open Source Available Now

    Well then get to work! It's not that hard to use. I tried doing UT99 with it a couple months ago, but unfortunately there are parts of the game that make it incompatible. It was pretty easy to get stuff setup and running though.

    MSI Monitor Cheats for You

    As shown the monitor's only input is a video signal and it's only output is a video signal. So unless it can get or transmit data some other way like USB it isn't going to be useful for any real cheats, it's just goint be modifying the UI with information already available to the player...

    Yeah, HLA is overrated IMO, but HLA at least does some real VR stuff. The trailer for Metro showed nothing at all. Maybe there will be something in the game, but so far, nothing. Also, actually analyzing the trailer. This trailer is FAKE GAMEPLAY When the ladder is being climbed a player...

    Metro Awakening

    You can definitely tell it's a Metro game by the trailer because the FOV they showed is like 30 degrees. It looked like they were trying to hide low polygon counts and low resolution textures with lens flares, fog, and dust. I also think just having hands and not connecting them to arms...
