Been waiting for this
Well you didn't really try to crash the system, that's where ME hit the fan. I was a tech-kid back then, running around the neighborhood doing maintenances, and while ME in my home computer worked fine (althought I reverted to 98 eventually mostly for MS-DOS mode), damn windows ME drove me crazy. For some users it would crash over and over, even microsoft took note of that: ME had the only built-in registry repair tool I've seen in a windows version lol. I could never tell for sure the root of all those crashes i fixed, but i suspect a simple hard shutdown, like a power outage, was enough to keep ME from booting. Maybe you could try to emulate that yourself ;)
It's not a pyramid PC case, it's a multi level PC case.
Hahahaah holy crap....you did it!
First program on CD-ROM was the "Muppet Treasure Island" adventure game for Windows 95.
Ooooo brings back memories!!!
Im going to make a fancy laptop called The big dump. And the ultra book will be called the mini dump.
That 3DO logo is so similar to the Google Home connecting to wi-fi GIF / Animation.
At least he is an action hero, who openly admits using steroids.
I had the extra mail order charts. I remember them being delivered and the deliver guy told me he had a package for my dad. If I only still had them...
Ah yes, the CUMquat.
This Game (together with Bio Menace) had probably an Influence in Duke 3d. Duke has blendet with the other two heroes. *Harry introduced the concept of women trapped in goo and the body horror done to them. Harry is however more of a gentleman. *Harry made the Jetpack cool. *Harry is clearly on Steroids. *Bio Menace put the setting into a realisitic setting and added extreme violence, to make the horror more edgy. The same concept was later used by Duke 3d (and Half Life). In fact you could say Bio Menace is to Duke (or Harry ) that Half Life is to Doom.
Fatal1ty kinda meant something back then. :P
I tried to play without Generations and I couldn't. I got addicted to the small changes it adds. XD
1 word! Ewwwwwwwww! Who put a peanut butter on keyboard?
I am waiting for someone to reverse engineer the light gun
A late comment -- I could add a few more, including one that I built myself from a kit by Giarcia's Circuit Cellar. It used a Hitachi CPU, 80180 and ZCPR operating system. A friend of mine had an Osborne portable. And just when the IBM PC was on its first incarnation, there were HP-85 and HP-87. I bought the '87 that had a wide screen display with text or bit graphics. The operating system was HP's own Basic (Amigo, I think). The floppy disk and printer interface were through HP-IB that was later standardized as IEEE-488 instrument control interface. One of the odd things was its memory stack, which could be optionally chained to 64 bits width. By the way, in the 1970's there were "development systems" to build programs and even burn EPROMS. One that I saw had a word processing program (loaded from an 8" floppy disk) and a compiler for Motorola 6800, 6801 and 6803 chips. A bit later Motorola came out its own development system, VME/10 that was a 32/16 bit unit for programming their 68,000 series chips.
Same pc I had from 2002 to 2005. Except I had the 500mhz pentium 3 variant.
Review killing Time it's a pc game released in 1996 or 7 by studio 3DO it's 10.99 on Steam more expensive on GOG and free on the zoom platform
I totally remember the disappointment of PU. I eventually forced myself to grind through and unlock the cars, leaned how to do the e-brake 360s, and honestly it became worth it when I finally got the GT2. HOLY SHIT that car was nuts! Almost made up for it eliminating every other car. Underground was pretty fun. Loved the drag mode, but NFS3 was always king.
You made a Monty Python reference and here I tought I couldn't love you more than I already do
I remember seeing that PC being used for computer operated factory machines.
I am pretty sure it was made by I Can Has Cheezburger Cat.
I am pretty sure this is a CNC controller they converted to a basic laptop.
I missed all this crap.. because I switched to Amiga from PC in 1990.
They claimed a remote control was an industry first in '95? When the Macintosh TV came out 2 years earlier? Um....
So what's the progress on Y2K38?
Were you ever able to get this to run under GLIDE? Does it look different on GLIDE hardware?
How to play this in windows 10?
Can we please talk about why in the flying fucks 2gbs of ram would've costed 1800 bucks back in 04????
this was my first PC hahahahah as a kid i didn't know it could run duke nukem and other games, now i kinda miss it but will never be able to find another one
Since you are into tech stuff and modular get an Ornament and Crime. Would recommend getting it with Hemispheres installed. I have a feeling you would love that module.
My dad has a window and door fitter company and a few years ago, they subscribed a special program for about 100 € per month from a large window and door manufacturer. During the installation I saw a hint like "use WinRAR if this doesn't work, it's included on the CD-ROM". I thought "no way, they really put a shareware on this CD-ROM?". In fact: They didn't. On the CD-ROM was a goddamn old WinRAR version from 2002 including their site license file! I extracted this license file and it's still working with the most recent versions of WinRAR.
Wish I still had those pixelated pics of the Dodge Viper I downloaded as a kid!
Being a musician, you'll get this. How crazy is it that most of the Korg Volca series STILL uses audio like the cassette drive to transfer data. I'm specifically talking about the Volca Sample here, original. (The one I bought, and love) LOL eh? .. THEN they got smart and made the Mark 2 with USB .. considering selling this one and buying that one. But then, I'm running the Pajen custom firmware, and IDT the Mark 2 has all the functions Pajen put in there. Or perhaps he's done a custom firmware for the Mk 2 now. I haven't checked. hmmmm
I love all of your Need for Speed videos
Too bad its broken. The graphics are nice compared to the ugly cartoon Cities Skylines and SimCity games.
Xerox Alto was impressive indeed
SImcity was the first game I saw on PC that made me look at myself and realize- "I am a Pc Gamer."
Check out Toca Race Driver 2 (2004) if you want to see the GT90 in another game
I wish I would've experienced '97 through the eyes of an innocent 11 year old, but I was a troubled 21 year old instead.
As a sysadmin I loved ME as it broke a lot of apps and devices we told staff not to use.
Still have my iMac G4
Here to watch the good old days... sigh*
Manic minor was good , jetpack ok
Whoa whoa whoa, where is our $800 cd bookshelf review??!?
Wow, Altec Lansing ACS 90 😍
your clips are like a little jump in the past . Music and all. I love them.
my first 'proper' computer
-Me: looking at not proper inserted second RAM module, telling for myself - it won´t run.. -PC at first attempt to run: BEEEEEEEEEEEEEP.....C1 :D
For some reason your videos put me in a good mood... it like reminds me of my "pc weekends" where nothing existed or could mess up my weekend if i had pc stuff to do
I actually registered winrar like 15 years ago. Still using the same license.
I still play this and Porsche Unleashed on my dimension all the time lol (mostly PU) and I still got my GT90 hotwheeles too xF
"I do not have neighbors, I live in a house" eeeh, Clint? you know those people who live in their own houses around ARE your neighbors right? XD
Notable ones: Sega Genesis version of Lemmings, Sega Master System, Amiga.
This needs a re-release!
More like building a bigger, badder beard! Looks good Clint. Nice and clean.l
In future can you make full hdd images :) thanks.
Mary Steam Version
My God! One of my first PC racing game back then, this bring back time..
music production stations, video production stations, aaand DRONNNES. I giggled quite a bit at that. Thanks for the awesome review!
You're my idol
I feel old 🥺
DOOM 3 is my favourite as i love it's new approach to the gameplay, the new designs, the engine,enviroments everything really
Man, Japan in the 90's sounds more futuristic than my country
In 13 years I'm so gonna do the same thing for 2020/21
Costs hundreds these days. Just checked on ebay.
Hold on, is there no warning about how the internet is not a big truck? Its not something you just dump something on....its a sieres of tubes! The internet is tubes!
Hey people, I'm trying to remember a game, with digitize human characters, similar to this game. Your character, in jail, (I believe framed for some crime) he punches out a guard, gets the keys, then escapes the cell. The you go up and down (by stairs/ladders..looks a bit like Donkey Kong) and the guards chase you! If you punch a guard, you can steal their gun, and shoot back. Does anyone know this game?
0:35 When I step on a lego..
If the game wasn't so clunky and unintuitive. I'd play it for more than 3 minutes before giving up. Seriously its horrible. Say what you will about later TES but at least they're playable.
Man, my Win 95 PC I just remember playing NFS2, NHL 97, Command & Conquer and Starcraft. Those games... NFS2 was definitely my favorite... played it so much, often with my dad too with him on the steering wheel and pedals and I'd take the keyboard. Good times!
I need a version of the track starting at 0:29. It sounds amazing!
8.45 - Blue Screen of Death
go to this number : 8:45
Those FMV videos about the cars remind me a lot of Top Gear.
In Connecticut we didn't get a frog to dissect. We got an earthworm, which isn't that educational considering there's nothing inside of it
I want something, anything, in my adult life that brings me even half of the enchantment the world of floppy stored games did for me in the 90's
In my opinion game is good now with all content that comed :)
Although, if you go into the specifics about how those characters are "drawn" on the screen, there's a whole world of digital goodness going on, different than text on PC monitors.
This is the best CHANNEL ON NLdron EVER!!!!!!!!
