  1. My new PC came with an already installed trial version of McAfee. In a few days, the trial version will be expired. Does it means that McAfee will be just a useless sitting duck? If yes, can I remove it without the risk of making my computer and my OS (Windows 10) collapse? Anyway, I'll need a new antivirus. What I want is a good and free one (since I can't have 2 antiviruses at the same time) that is not going to mess things around. What would you suggest me?
  2. And I thought Tiberian Twilight was terrible. Command and Conquer: Rivals is an insulting abomination!

      I'm still playing Renegade online!

      They can have my Generals: Zero Hour when they pry it from my cold, dead hands!

  3. I'm coming home! But first...

    I have successfully purchased and downloaded Simcity 4 from GOG for only 4.09 euros. Now all I need is to install it, but I don't have the time right now to do it yet. Until then, I'll need some extra advises. Since it's my very first time I install a game on Windows 10, what must I have in mind during the installation? Is there any trick I need to know before installing it? My PC is a multiple core one, so how can I make the game running on only one core? I have also a widescreen TV that I use it as a monitor as well for my PC with 1920 X 1080 resolution. What would you suggest me for this case? Any help and advice will be more than welcomed
  4. My dad bought me a new computer. A HP Slimline Desktop PC 260-a109nv, with fully updated Windows 10 Home, 64 bit, 4 GB RAM and AMD processor A6-7310 APU with AMD Radeon R4 Graphics. I already have my physical copy of Simcity 4 Deluxe (yes, I still have it) but I'm going to download a digital one from GOG, just to make sure that it will be playing on my new PC. So, I want to ask just a few questions. Based on the info provided, do you think my PC is good enough to play Simcity 4? When it's the best time to buy the game? Right now it's 17 euros, which is a good price but I'd rather buy it on an even lower one. Is there any trick I have to know to ensure a smooth playing experience on Windows 10? What would you suggest me? How about the Lot Editor? Will it be playing on my new PC? If no, is there any alternative to make my lots? And finally... did you miss me? Cross your fingers, my friends. It's been 4 years, but finally...
  5. I'm coming home...

  6. I remember I had used this fix for Firefox. It worked, but only for a while. Maybe the updates have something to do with this.
  7. I can't stand this anymore. I just can't. Everything is going from bad to worse. No light, no hope. I'm sorry, but I can't smile anymore.

      Sorry to hear that, not that it will help but I tend to remember the end of this poem when I'm having a bad day


      Did you waste the day, or lose it, was it well or sorely spent?
      Did you leave a trail of kindness or a scar of discontent?
      As you close your eyes in slumber do you think that God would say,
      You have earned one more tomorrow by the work you did today?

      Its by someone called Edgar Guest

  8. San Francisco

    I remember driving at the roads of San Fran with my Audi TT on Midtown Madness 2. Good times Very beautiful recreation of the city you have here
  9. The Obituaries Thread

    Stephen Hawking, modern science's brightest star, dies aged 76
  10. Kraftwerk in Greece today! Can't wait *:ohyes:

  11. I have a terrible feeling about the Greece-Turkey relationship and the crisis in Aegean Sea.

  12. If it smells like poop everywhere you go, check your shoes before you start blaming.

  13. AndisArt's BAT cookery

    Surprisingly, it looks very cyberpunk and badass. Brilliant work!
  14. SimMars doesn't have wind turbines because of the very low density of the Martian atmosphere. Mars has an atmospheric pressure of less than 1% of Earth's, so having wind turbines on SimMars is pointless, right? Well, not exactly. In fact, it turns out that wind power is viable on Mars, according to NASA research. This video explains why and how. What do you think? Do you think it's high time we add some futuristic wind turbines on the red planet?
  15. SimCity 3000 BAT project

    The Wilkinson Tower is usually one of the very first skyscrapers appearing after laying large density commercial zones, mostly on land with medium land value. May I propose bringing the Wilkinson Tower into Simcity 4 as a low wealth commercial-services building? Poor Sims lives in huge apartment buildings and works in huge factories. So, how about making them shopping in huge skyscrapers as well?
