  1. Hai guise. I was complaining and asking why Flash performance became bad and hogged CPU in newer Basilisk and PaleMoon, and found option to control problem. dom.ipc.plugins.asyncdrawing.enabled; Set to false. Now it's smooth.
  2. I failed to mention, I forgotten a general.useragent.override(all sites) for a recent firefox ...which broke github. So, it's my fault this time.
  3. User agent override works, but I can only go as far as "Oops, it looks like something went wrong. Click OK to automatically reload Skype for Web." using v52FF-based Serpent.
  4. Gracias. That's certainly more recognizable than "setup.exe".
  5. https://web.archive.org/web/20120912053829/http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=20039 Windows Tablet PC SDK 1.7 I've been looking around and can't for the life of me seem to find this item. Archive.org sadly does not go past confirmation page. Help.
  6. ReactOS has a long way to come before it becomes practical. All my hopes and wishes for it, but not anytime soon.
  7. Ah whoops! So the problems I was having with ublock0 were because of automatic updates.
  8. Ublock seems to fail spontaneously and stop filtering altogether with FF 55-based Basilisk, needing reinstall of the XPI for it to work again. I am using the uBlock0.firefox-legacy.xpi I found on Roytam's server.
  9. I managed to break FF52-based Basilisk(instacrash on startup), so I moved session to the less updated FF55-based branch where I was able to start and undo settings. Here, they just seem to reduce performance(at least in Discord). I was unable to view webgl on some site, in FF52 Basilisk, so I decided to toy around with about:config settings, then restarted browser. Crash. One of these(or a combo thereof), broke the browser: - layers.acceleration.force-enabled: true - layers.prefer-opengl: true - webgl.force-enabled: true My config is: - gpu: nVIDIA Quadro 600, driver version 368.81 - os: Win XP SP3 x86 with "SP4" updates
  10. Didn't discord claim they are banning 3rd party clients, when caught?
  11. Well, I doubt that would fair any better. Buggy PortAudio code is my bet.
  12. Audacity 2.3.2 almost works on my end, with just patching of EXE OS version. Almost... Edit: the 2.3.1 v4 XP mod posted here bombs out with same error. Same with 2.0.6, the version they claim is last XP compatible. 2.0.0, last win98 compat version works, though.
  13. I wholeheartedly recommend Grub4DOS bootloader.
  14. This video fails to play in latest Basilisk UXP "Video format or MIME type is not supported"
  15. The browser seems more aggressive in disabling incompatible extensions lately.
  16. HAL.DLL comes with windows. If it's not there, something went very, very wrong.
  17. Easiest to change in about:config, at key: general.useragent.override.discordapp.com I use value: Mozilla/5.0 (7; Windows 7 X86; rv:63.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/63.0
  18. Electron-based, I think. I just stick with web version.
  19. Confirming that, and inability to copy image location, or rightclick-viewimage.
  20. Hehe, while we're at it regarding friends, try your luck at irc.freenode.net, #winapi channel.
  21. Eh, I'm using XP with unofficial "SP4" updates(OS reinstall from POSReady 2009). https://anonfile.com/RbQ7w4qfb4/Python37_zip I've repackaged and twiddled with python 3.7 a bit, using a few suggestions from other thread. Cleanup folder structure a bit, separate misc files from the pyc(fixes pip failure), added tkinteri+tcl, include get-pip.py, One slightly curious thing is this. https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/40ef233105b36ea12b600235ad96905820053246bcb003f22eb33ca180ef28c1/analysis/1544275319/ https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/a29e6eef3a1ee7a9606b5092d3ca61e7f1675a67798e9514bcfad7b46b9fbad6/analysis/1544275691/ I'm thinking maybe false positives.
  22. I've been toying around between latest UXP basillisk, last non-UPX basillisk, palemoon 27 and 28, with new profiles. Youtube playback performance seems roughly about the same between browsers, although I couldn't test PM27 there. I've used https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RvbPSf2JwrE in 1080p for testing. It probably has a high framerate and tends to get choppy on my end. As for my previous npapi flash complaints, I think old Basillisk and PM27 did things slightly differently from UXP-Basillisk and PM28. Something changed under the hood. The latter two seem to have that gross inefficiency in rendering flash.
