    OK, it was only to make you smile, but if it bothers you in any way, I prefer to delete it, it's done, and sorry UCyborg. Delete in your post too, please.

    OK. Didn't think it was meant as a joke. Doesn't matter, I'm not mad.

    Yes I think so addictive personality because when you start a game should be able to stop and when you can not that is a sign but not you from what you say.

    I love being able to STOP.

    Funny, my parents considered me the addict. But now that I spend more time than ever behind computer at some job, that's better!? Gaming didn't leave me exhausted. I earn money, but what's the point?


    Speaking of useless, how 'bout sports? On TV, they just won't shut up about Luka Dončić. Dončić this, Dončić that, blah, blah, blah...seriously, can no one else play basketball? How are they advancing society? All I see is few individuals earning absurd amounts of money. The world's backwards.

    On absurd, founders of Outfit7 made one of the most silly games in existence, Talking Tom. They have shitload of money because of it.

    I think that ALL games are NOT good. For infants (before all) not good, after adolescence in day and night games you have adults who can neither write nor speak well, nor be useful in society. With mental deficiencies.

    Those adults have some other underlying issue. Can't blame it on games.

    Mine used to also.  For me, the fix was to KEEP the two swiftshader folder .dll files.

    I mean, it can't be called a fix since he went out of his way to break it in the first place.

    Even though "swiftshader" isn't 'supported' by XP and is 'supposed' to only apply to Vulkan API, the REALITY is that the upstream developers are using these .dll's for OTHER purposes and KEEPING them makes 360Chrome MUCH more STABLE for certain setups.

    I mean, it was backported and gets you laggy maps on meteoblue.com (and other WebGL content), no?

    SwiftShader has some history, before acquired by Google, the version from the old times provided software rendering for D3D8/D3D9 functions.

    I have no sound in the game because it wants me to install DX9 (!) 9.0b or c from 2000, why do I need it, I don't understand.

    XAudio2? Most versions of it are old, 2.0 to 2.7 are from 2008-2010, so old, but not that old. 2.8 shipped with Windows 8 and 2.9 shipped with Windows 10 and is available as redistributable DLL for Windows 7/8.x. Version 2.8 is redirected to 2.9 on Windows 10.

    Will you help me with making a portable sound fix ? thank you !

    Wouldn't it be better to fix whatever is messing with your audio? Still doesn't make sense presence of XAudio2 DLLs would mess with audio, they just sit there, waiting to be used by something that outputs, like other sound APIs' DLLs. Maybe @win32 knows something?

    But maybe you would prefer me to talk about games... I don't like electronic games, I've never played them, I don't like artificial representations of characters doing things that are impossible for real people to do, I think it's stuff for children and a waste of time instead of doing something useful in our unique lives, sorry... So you get into the artificial, and then you lose your only time in the real, in life... sorry.  The difference is like the difference between a real woman and a doll. That's what I think.
    And you, what do you think about all this

    I think we're all wasting time one way or another. Real life!? Meh...

  5. OP messed with the pagefile, at least I don't see any other logical explanation after code analysis unless that system is FUBARed in other ways effecting the outcome. One of the 3 conditions must be true for memory check to pass, in order of evaluation:

    1. 20 MB free RAM and 10 MB free space in pagefile
    2. 10 MB free RAM and 20 MB free space in pagefile
    3. 30 MB free space in pagefile

    If none pass, the error is shown:

    FWIW, this "web app" does not load in the UXP browsers (St52/NM28) because UXP does NOT support "dynamic module import":


    How did you get this error to show? It doesn't show on storymaps.arcgis.com for me, just the message about cleared console. Maybe something to do with "incognito" mode? :dubbio: It shows on docs.arcgis.com, but it's not all. Waterfox Classic 2022.11 has dynamic module import support, but still doesn't show the content on the page at storymaps.arcgis.com.

    Plus Widevine is one of those ugly Google things built with an expiration date, sooner or later it stops working and you need a new version. Look on the bright side, that way, you are liberated from those POS streaming services.

    That said, I don't know the solution to the problem DRM tries to solve. People lie, cheat, steal...

    I assume being more likely/willing to pay for DRM free stuff is a minority position.

    But then, yeah, since you said it, I will also never abandon Chrome and Windows XP and 7.

    I already abandoned them in a sense that I don't have practical use for computing on them anymore since Win10 runs everything that I need satisfactorily. Several years ago, somewhen mid previous decade, I abandoned Windows 2000 since I haven't had the use for the old accounting software I used to run on it.

    Looking at the files, it seems to be from 2003 and uses InterBase SQL Server version from 2001. I remember trying it on XP (definitely period-correct!), but the startup was noticeably delayed on that OS, so the program was never used on it. I ran it on an old very noisy Windows 98 machine initially (233 MHz Pentium, 2x 2GB SCSI disks) before migrating to the newer computer available, actually the one I'm writing from, inside a VirtualBox virtual machine. What a boost in responsiveness! On the old PC, even opening print preview took seconds to open while the disk was grinding.

    That program also has some weird licensing system from the era, but it didn't require online connectivity and the activation could be transferred from one computer to another using a floppy diskette.


    I guess I booted to XP more often when I still worked on the patches for some of the favorite old games of mine, mostly to address bugs and incompatibilities in (more) modern environments, to check if still works on the old OS. I mostly prefer native installs, especially for such fun stuff, virtual machines don't have proper graphics support. These days, maybe I check the browsers every once in a while on those OS.

    I won't bother with native installs of old OS when the day comes to replace this computer. I never even bothered with native install of Windows 2000 on this computer, which would maaaybe be workable, but not sure. Maybe virtual machine if I ever need something specific (not messing with web browsers).

    For several years, I've been seein' the message about corrected hardware error originating from AMD Northbridge in Event Viewer, happens after boot or resuming from hibernation. No idea when it even started. Who knows how long it'll work. I thought I bricked it shortly after installing the old PCI network card (brand SMC) I still have from the previous computer to try something several months ago, I was messing with FreeDOS before I realized my onboard Ethernet actually has a working driver for DOS and don't actually need that card. That and the on-board slowed down to 10MBps at the time, which I later realized was due to dust. Should probably clean the whole thing again this summer if not sooner. That network card, it seems to have stopped working shortly afterwards, few days being in the PC and made the PC looked bricked, the whole thing started to work again after removing it, otherwise, it was just fans spinning and blank screen.


    The corrected hardware error is persistent though, like the CHECK light in my previous 21,5 years old car, for which I never remembered/was reluctant to ask what it even indicates in that case and I didn't have any tool to read the error myself. The car ran with that light for several years. Almost everyone commented about how poor it is, having number of scratches, some rust, some peeled-off paint. I don't think most even knew the rust held for as long as it did and never cut through anything critical. So the metal was decent. It looked OK from the distance and the price of 0€ was not too bad so it got 5 more years of service from my family's side than it would otherwise. :D The person driving it (me) had the least complaints. :P

    The last year was apparently the year of upgrades, besides giving away my old car, we replaced the old freezing cabinet. It was over 37 years old, the people who might remember exact age are long dead. The pipe carrying the coldness was partially exposed since some of the material covering it degraded into nothingness and was all green on the sides, so not all parts of the cabinet were sufficiently cooled.

    Therapy sometimes is just pointless unless but Not always.

    My brother told me back then when I visited psychiatrist once that everyone has some issues that they need something in that department. I'm not sure if he also meant that the same everyone would need something pro-longed in that department. He still goes to that notorious psychiatric hospital for check-ups every once in a while. Notorious, might apply even more to the village where it resides, it's a habit of people around here, when you think someone is mental, you say he belongs to that "village name".

    Ex-classmate from high school lived there and I remember how another classmate asked him once like: "Bro, are you gonna go to Begunje?" He answered along the lines noooot yet, don't feel like it ATM. Of course both knew what the guy who asked was implying (jokingly).

    I was never there, not the hospital at least. So what, my mind still runs stable as hell?

  9. This looks wrong, St52's mozglue.dll definitely does have free and moz_xmalloc functions. :crazy:

    That said, I delete VC runtime DLLs from application folder, so all api*.dllmsvcp140.dll, ucrtbase.dll, vcomp140.dll and vcruntime140.dll, also both D3DCompiler_*.dll since I have all of those in system System32/SysWOW64 folders. Then dependentlibs.list file must be modified to not list any of those, I actually delete everything except the "xul.dll" line since the OS resolves other dependencies anyway.

    I actually have Visual C++ 2022 Redist version 14.32.31326 from 1st half of previous year installed, it was installed from whatever version of this pack was current then.

  10. I wonder what change made the search bar on https://learn.microsoft.com/ appear correctly in newer UXP browsers with Palefill extension, something in UXP or the extension? One small thing that renders correctly now on newer UXP browsers, but not Chrome 86. Actually, not the search bar, just the magnifying glass icon is misplaced. Not sure abut other parts, will have to check with more recent Chromium for comparison.

    About WebRTC, if I remember correctly, I'd like to add that it made it to Basilisk/Serpent as it was considered newer/experimental application at the time that resembled Firefox with Australis interface, which happened to have the feature. I believe some work must be done on the GUI side to properly support it (permission settings). Maybe it would make it to Pale Moon if its implementation in the current state was useful practically, or would the users also vote no? :dubbio:

  11. Pardon, I said that I need, although maybe I actually don't anymore, not sure, time will tell, looks good so far. I certainly did need back in December. But from the beginning of December, when I first booted into XP after several months and installed this version of 360Chrome, until today, there were some changes made. On 360Chrome side, new extension joined the collection, Chrome Super Font Enhancer and other extensions (uBlock Origin, Tampermonkey, Stylus) were updated.

    My normal Windows user account was also de-elevated; I installed Sudo for Windows and removed myself from Administrators group and added myself to groups Users and Sudoers (the mentioned program creates the latter group). Also changed security policy defining the default creator when it's created by administrative users so owner of files, registry keys etc. is set to Administrators group in that case rather than the actual user.

    So programs, including 360Chrome, run with restricted privileges by default now unless I explicitly run it as admin.
