  1. Am I correct in thinking you need Cygwin installed to even run this? Maybe why nobody replied to your reddit winxp post...
  2. I'm confused. Is ArcticFoxie now NotHereToPlayGames or is this a different user? If so... why?
  3. There's also LZDoom, which apparently had it's last XP compatible release on github earlier this year... version 3.87c - note the "XP fix" file too. https://github.com/drfrag666/gzdoom/releases and https://github.com/drfrag666/gzdoom/releases/tag/3.87c Tried the newer versions and get the "not a 32-bit app" dialog.
  4. Sorry if this has been talked about already... but does this version of Chrome utilize DRM (digital rights management tech)?
  5. And not the classes... eh? Anyone here remember Jack Tramiel?
  6. I think I've discovered a weird bug in the program... using version 12, if you leave the "avatar" on and accidentally right click at the bottom of it (Chinese text) the browser UI locks up... and all chrome processes have to be force-quit in the task manager. Fortunately, in the UI settings you can enable/disable the avatar.. Also, is there an easy way to enable/disable smooth font rendering in the browser? Aside from that, it's remarkable how stable & quick version 12 is. And it's definitely "quiet"... doesn't connect to China or any e100 (Google) servers upon starting up to a blank page.
  7. How ironic that the Pale Moon developers are circling the drain over "web standards" and are now taking everyone down with them.
  8. The guy who builds the 32-bit XP-compatible versions of MAME has 0.235 available as of yesterday on a Google Drive page here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1eiNztWEpk0C7CiiZXz0SMDM_eJOmb0FO It's just the executable, no other files or folders except "about.txt" I found that link on the Retro Roms forum a year ago: https://www.retroroms.info/forum/topic/32-bit-Mame-and-other-distributions-executables.htm He doesn't archive older versions, but Progetto-Snaps does: https://www.progettosnaps.net/index.php And they put everything inside their downloads, all necessary folders and config files, etc. Although I've tested the newer versions of Arcade in XP, I've stuck with 0.211 because in subsequent versions, the MAME team got rid of the ability to individually enable/disable the various artwork types. Now it's all or nothing. I also like Mameuifx32 version 0.175.1...
  9. I know Humming Owl has links in his thread... but are these other versions available for download?
  10. So.... are we 100% safe from Chinese telemetry or gawd knows what else...?
  11. There's a number of "recent" (if you consider 8-10 years recent) pro-level notebooks you can get for cheap that work with XP well: Lenovo L420, L520, L530, T520 (i'd say T530... but it's got some issues) Dell e6420, e6430, e6230, e6530 These are the ones I have... there may be others..?
  12. Everybody is searching for the truth... and it turns out it's the world's biggest racket.
  13. ArcticFoxie said: "the "internet" is evolving towards Chrome-only" Is that going to be the new thought-terminating cliche here now? You know, like... it is what it is.
  14. I was wondering... what is the unique ID for both mailnews and icedove to convert older Thunderbird add-ons (if you open up the .xpi files)? The three addons I use get rejected: Auto Select Latest Message, CompactHeader, and Contacts Sidebar. These all work fine with Thunderbird 52.... Halfway back in this thread the unique hex code for IceApe was revealed... so I figured there was one for these email apps too. Thanks in advance...
